Can’t believe a whole year has already passed since Simone’s 1st Birthday at the Santa Monica Pier Carousel. Sweet Simone is now 2, and as darling as ever.
We celebrated her 2nd birthday with all things pink and purple. From the ruffled ombre’ pink and purple cake, purple sugared cake pops, to #2 polka dotted sugar cookies, guests enjoyed the party on a sugar high.
Thank you Bill and Scout for including me in such a special event! Simone is one lucky little girl to be surrounded with so much love.

It’s all about ombre’ this season. Not only can we wear it as our hairstyle, nails and fashion, we can ombre’ in buttercream as well! Loving this ruffle ombre cake and 1st birthday smash cake. Even cookies can look great in ombre’ colors.
I am discovering more and more ways to make buttercream as appealing and even more gorgeous than fondant covered cakes. Using fondant is sometimes necessary to achieve a certain look or concept, but there is nothing like sinking your teeth into a cake covered in buttercream.
Loving this blue ombre cake we did for a boy baby shower. Just because it’s a blue doesn’t mean it can’t be pretty! We did batman in buttercream, which could have been completely fondant covered, but instead we just used the fondant as accents to decorate Gotham City. The pink ombre cake was for a sweet 16th, and Barbie was made trendy covered in ombre pink buttercream roses.
I absolutely loved being a part of Jen and Dave’s nautical wedding aboard one of Seattle’s Argosy Cruise ships. The space and time to set up was very minimal so we decided to do dessert centerpieces rather than a full dessert station. I had navy blue and white seersucker runners made for each table, placed under white milk glass cake plates, adorned with nautical themed treats. Navy blue and white anchor sugar cookies, sparkly cake lollipops tied with rope, and cupcakes topped with white chocolate seashells greeted each guest at their table.
Dessert centerpieces can be a great way to cut down on wedding expenses, and your guests love having the desserts right in front of them!
Last month I created a hawaiian themed table for a couple who escaped the rain to get married in Hawaii. They threw a fun reception here at the Everett Golf and Country Club, who were fabulous to work with. Most venues have so many restrictions on hanging, displaying, etc. They were fine with anything. Love that!
The date has finally been set for the Jenny Cookies Spring class!
Learn how to make the perfect dough (every time!), bake amazing sugar cookies and the most fantastic buttercream frosting, combined with learning to use pastry bags and tips to decorate your cookies. Each student will have the opportunity to decorate their own spring inspired sugar cookies.
In addition to the sugar cookie creations they’ll take home, each student will leave with a no-fail sugar cookie and icing recipe that can be enjoyed for personal use, for many years to come. Students will also be given a cookie cutter and Jenny Cookies water cup & straw.
All supplies included in course cost. Aprons are optional, but fun, so wear one!
Jenny Cookies Kits will be available for purchase the day of the class ($20). (Not required or needed for class)

One of my favorite friends had a birthday last night so I finally had the perfect excuse to make an ombre’ rose cake! Love how this cake turned out, especially the coral icing.
