cookies … a fresh take on Halloween

Hey everyone!

It’s Nicole and it’s time to talk about what is on everyone’s minds. Who is officially going to play Mr. Christian Gray? Eek! I meant to ask you about your stance on Halloween and if you dig such a crazy holiday!  Well, since you already caught me off-guard, I guess it is ok to confess that I have mixed feelings about Halloween. I definitely don’t like being scared but I love all the fun and whimsy twists on the holiday. I mean, take my witch cookies for example. Witches are usually green, full of warts, and spreading sunshine throughout the land. Oh, wait. That doesn’t seem right.  Well, since green is not my best color and I am not a fan of warts (ew!) I designed whimsy witch hats and funky witch shoes. Who doesn’t love shoes? I guess even witches can have a shoe collection that mirrors Imelda Marcos. I guess the bottom line is that even if you aren’t full of warts and can’t tell the difference between Louboutin and Doc Martens, you can still appreciate the sass and funky of these witches. I mean, they are cookies. No one turns away a cookie. Not even Mr. Gray.

happy st. patrick’s day …

We had some excessive use of rainbow sprinkles today …

and it was good! Given my rainbow baking history,  these cupcakes were a huge success … as they are completely gone!

We used this cupcake recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything … moist, delicious and super easy.   A definite must try recipe!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

i love … a special delivery

Valentine’s Day was a simple holiday in our house.  We exchanged cards and a little gift.  I made heart shaped pizzas which were a huge hit.  After dinner, the kids each received one more present.  It was wrapped beautifully in a white box with a red ribbon … a little extra surprise for them!  The extra surprise was a special delivery cookie gift set from Perfectly Posh Sweets & Soirees.

Aidan and Ava Kate loved them.  Each cookie was decorated with beautiful detail … perfectly.    So pretty … almost too pretty to eat … almost.  They were delicious.  Here are our cookies with Aidan & Ava Kate’s names on them …

You should have seen the smiles on their faces!  Their eyes lit up when they saw their very own name.  The cookie gift sets are the perfect little surprise for a birthday, holiday or just to say “Hi”.

I love hearing how a business starts … where the inspiration comes from.  I asked Trish to share a bit about her and her sweet company.

A little about Perfectly Post Sweets & Soirees from Trish …

“While I had always admired the work of my Great-Grandmother who made cakes for 60 years, it was completely on accident that Perfectly Posh Sweets & Soirees began! On a whim I took a class to learn how to frost a cake! From that class I created a cute fish themed cake, which I hope will be forever lost in the archives, and to my shock, 3 moms asked me to make cakes for their children’s birthdays! And so out of one fishy themed cake, grew Perfectly Posh Sweets & Soirees where I’ve spent nearly the last 3 years making hundreds of custom cakes! I absolutely love to see a cake in its finished state, but I think what I’ve enjoyed most over the past years is all the friendships that have resulted simply because clients & I had tons of fun in the process! It has been a complete joy to work so many of the same clients each year!

In 2011, I realized that my love for creating fun birthday parties for my children over the past 10 years, was a perfect match to marry with Perfectly Posh! So in addition to creating custom cakes, Perfectly Posh began locally offering complete custom dessert tables, from every fun detail of the display down to every dessert on the table!

This year in 2012, Perfectly Posh is getting a make-over! We are taking a leap and delving into what we love, every inch of parties! March is an exciting month and will include a new website along with a large line of shippable products in a new online store! The online store is a place that moms & party stylists can order small custom cakes & custom desserts from homemade marshmallows, chocolate covered oreos, custom printed & iced cookies, mini-pies, whoopee pies, mini bunt cakes, meringues, cupcake toppers & sugar flowers!  We believe that desserts like recipes are simply inspiration, each item we create is custom from its design, flavor, color choices and every little detail!”

Perfectly Post Sweets & Soirees offers lots of designs as well as custom orders.  I have my eye on these cute pig cookies  which would be perfect for an Olivia birthday party…

Loving these sweet cupcakes too …

I can’t wait to see everything that Perfectly Posh Sweets & Soirees has in store!  You should definitely stop by her facebook page to see more cake, cookie and dessert table photos!
