Cookies, cookies everywhere....

I just finished 400+ sunflower cookies for the Keller High School Band Banquet.  I realized Wednesday night, that is over 6400 petals that I piped.  I know it doesn't end world hunger or anything, but part of me feels like freakin' wonder woman.   I don't know quantum physics or how to climb Mt. Everest,  but if anyone ever needs anything piped with royal icing through a leaf tip, I'm your gal. :)

Believe it or not, the decorating was the easy part of the week.  The hard part was coordinating baking, storing, icing, drying, bagging, and then boxing in the small space I have to work with.  Thank goodness I am a problem solver and organized.  And after tackling 400+ sunflower cookies, I'm in for whatever.  Which is why I didn't even blink at the 100 football booster cookies request from my friend Caprice.  I'm so glad she asked AFTER the sunflowers...

I have 2 fondant cakes to do next week, and I am looking forward to it.  The week after I bet I will be wishing for more cookies to decorate, or cupcakes to make.  I get bored and distracted easy, which is what makes me a great baker, because.... oh look a squirrel!... now what was I saying?
Hey, did you ever want to see how 400+ cookies look ready to be transported?

You're welcome :)

Have a great weekend!!!

A wedding to remember...

One of my best friends, Sarah, got married this past December.  I was lucky enough to get to do all of her cakes and desserts for the reception and gift bags. It was the biggest order I've ever done, and it was so amazing and wonderful to get to be a part of Sarah and Jeffs' special day. My frIend, Ashley Rutland, who owns Ashley Rutland Photography, did the photos for the wedding.  She is an amazing photographer in the DFW area and if you're around here you should really check her out! Ashley had a friend of hers, a blogger named Kim, do a write up of the wedding.  Kim's an amazing mom, wife, and blogger, and you can read her blog here at: I wanted to share her write up with you.  It really encompasses the atmosphere and feeling of the wedding, and Sarah and Jeff as well!! Winter weddings always seem to capture a certain type of elegance that can only be enhanced by the magic of the sea

Favorite Cakes of 2014

2014 was a crazy year for me over here at Sugar Cubed Bakery.  I technically "started" the bakery in 2013, so I had a registered bakery name and got my food handler's license, but I didn't start getting the home bakery out to the public until early 2014.  I needed that year to sort of get my bearings, get comfortable with my work and techniques, figure out what to charge, and how to manage my time etc.  I didn't want to rush into taking a bunch of orders and get overwhelmed. So after a year of "growing", I started the website, along with social media, and never looked back. So when I decided to do a "Favorites of 2014", I was surprised that all of these cakes were in 2014. It feels like ALOT longer than a year ago or less that I made them.  So much has happened since then. And yes I know it is almost April and everyone else's BEST of 2014s were put out in January...  I'm still catching up people! lol  Just be happy I'm bloggin

Easter weekend

This past Easter was a really special one in my family.  My youngest nephew, the baby of the family, received his First Communion and Confirmation.  It was an amazing time and it went by way too fast. His parents are my husband's brother and his wife.  They are very special to my family and I.  My sister-in-law's family, her sister, brothers, and parents are very special to us too.  I am very blessed.  Some people are lucky enough to have in-laws that they are close to, but I get 2 sets for the price of 1.  Sometimes my sis- in- law jokes that I was a member of her family before I was even a member of my hubby's...  There are not enough words for how much I love them.... Getting to be a part of our nephew's special day, and spending Easter with them, was so amazing and special.  I loved getting to do his cake and some cookies for him, and I also got the opportunity to make some cookies for his CCD teachers.  I think that making religious cookies and cakes is
