It's all about the national pasttime people!

So this week, along with all of the 50th anniversary goodies (which by the way I am still baking), I made cookies for my niece and nephews' softball and baseball teams.  Talk about a fun set of cookies to do!  And to get paid by your sister is always gratifying too, now that I think about it.

For those of you that don't know, I am a perfectionist.  To the point that it's unhealthy.  Because I constantly pick apart my personal performances. Never anyone else's, just mine.  So of course I super stressed over the color of these softballs. I mean, how the heck was I supposed to make neon "safety" green royal icing.  But it all worked out surprisingly.  I even had to mix an extra batch because I didn't make enough and got it matched.  I can't even tell a difference in the two batches of color, maybe because I was praying to the cookie gods during the entire process.  Another perfectionist/OCD trigger is lettering.  It's my weakest skill.  But thanks to Callye over at I ordered PME #1.5 tips, and boy she wasn't kidding!  These things are the Cadillacs of the piping tip world!!!  It's not my weakness anymore.  Thank you Callye!!

I had so much, and I mean so much fun making these Texas Rangers "T" baseballs.  I'm seriously hoping for a ton of orders on these so I can just keep making them.  The baseball bats (or turkey legs, as my hobby joked, he's such a comedian) were a perfect compliment to the baseballs too!

I'm a football fan by heart, but I enjoyed these cookies so much I might just watch some baseball now. With a beer.  And a hot dog, can't forget the hot dog. Ok, now I'm hungry...  

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

Why are there not more hours in the day?

How do people do it?  I see all of these amazing women on instagram every day and they look perfect, their kids look perfect, their houses look perfect, their businesses are bigger than mine, and they do it all with a huge smile on their face.  Sometimes I can't get out the front door without the kids having WWIII, dropping my purse, dropping my phone, and at least someone (usually me) crying in the process. Maybe it's easy to look perfect when all people are seeing is a photo glimpse into our lives once or twice a day.  But sometimes it just seems that I am hanging on by a thread.  I guess the grass is always greener on the other side, I remember when my kids were small and everyone constantly asked me, "How do you do it???" I have 4 kids.  My oldest, he is 17.  I have twin boys who are 12, and the baby girl is just about to turn 11.  Yes, I had 3 in diapers at one time.  Yes, I know what causes babies lol.  I remember constantly being asked, "How do you do
