Sneak peek of my Cupcake and Cookie Texture Sheets

I have several designs of Cupcake and Cookie Texture Sheet Sets coming out early next year. The sets will include mats with designs for cupcakes and round cookies. Each set will include three different designs. These sheets will make decorating easy! The sample below is from my Whimsy Floral set. Other sets will be Classic Floral, Geometric, Scrolls, and two Christmas sets.

This collection of treats celebrates jolly, ole Santa Claus in the classic Christmas colors. The santa face embellishments are pre-made royal icing pieces that make decorating quick and easy. Instructions for these treats can be found on Country Kitchen SweetArt website.

Halloween Dessert and Treats Party

Our basement was just recently finished, so we decided to have a fall party. Luckily the rainy weather cleared in time to give us a beautiful night for a cookout. We served hot dogs and chili, and then had lots of sweets!

It’s a little morbid, but I turned my kids into Halloween characters using adobe photoshop and framed them in a gothic frame.

Vampire Treats for Halloween

My assitant Theresa and I made several treats for a vampire-themed Halloween. I also gotta admit that I am a Twilight fan and am so looking forward to the last movie, part one of Breaking Dawn! I just may need to make some of these treats again for our girls night out at the movies! For instructions on these as well as many other Halloween treats, visit Country Kitchen SweetArt’s website.

Cupcake Birthday Party Theme

Sydney is turning 12! This year has been a huge year for Syd! She started 6th grade -middle school! We’ve moved, so all of her friends are at a different school.  She is having a slumber party with a few of her close friends. She and I both love cupcakes, so we decided on a cupcake theme.  I made several special treats for the party. The instructions for all of these projects can be found on Country Kitchen SweetArt’s website. We planned on having her slumber party over labor day weekend, then she came down with pnemonia!  The treats are frozen and ready for her rescheduled party.  Leslie, my sister, helped Sydney make necklaces for all her friends. Each necklace had a cupcake picture and a little copper charm with their name. They turned out SO cute!

Fun Summer Picnic Cupcakes

Picnic Time Cupcakes

Fun cupcakes for a summer picnic! White rolled fondant was textured with the plaid mat from my fabric texture set. After the fondant was textured, a round cutter was used to fit on top of the cupcake. After the fondant set (several hours) the squares were colored with red food color markers. The ants, watermelon, hamburgers and hot dogs were hand modeled with fondant.
