TENNIS BIRTHDAY

These tennis birthday cake truffles were from last August for my friend's mother-in-law's birthday.  The birthday lady's hobbies were tennis and yoga, so I chose to make tennis balls and my friend wanted the truffles to say "Happy Birthday Sandy!"  Since these treats were for a slightly more mature gathering, the truffles are butter cake inside and I made them slightly less sweet (with less frosting).  My friend had been craving chocolate cake truffles too so I just made some for her and added those in!
 


Packaged and ready to for some birthday fun! I split up the tennis balls without letters in separate boxes because I didn't want to cut up the words.

Happy Birthday Sandy!!!

I'M BACK!!!

I've taken a slight hiatus from posting but not from baking - I've had to have several surgeries (8 in the last 18 months) AND we recently gave birth to a new baby girl.  YAY!!! :)  But all is good so it's back to posting!  I'll be back-posting several projects that I worked on (including my own baby shower) so please check back often.  Also, I've migrated from my old laptop to a Microsoft Surface so I can edit pictures and update posts whenever I want!! O happy day!  :D

 
Yes, these are my baby's actual 1-month feet and my husband's hands. <3
