Volunteer Appreciation

Hello, cookie lovers! 
 I thought these swirls would be fun for Empowering, Inc.'s 
Volunteer Appreciation Night!
Thank you all you wonderful EI volunteers! Muchas gracias!

It took a LOT of experimenting to get these cookies just right...
as you can see, there are still quite a few little goofs.  
So my biggest goof consisted of not screwing 
the top of the yellow frosting bottle on tight enough. 
Yes, yellow frosting went everywhere!  
Despite all the bumps along the way, the great thing about this design is you don't have to 
wait for the different layers of frosting to dry.

It's the First Day of Spring!

It is the first day of spring today, isn't it?  Okay, maybe it was yesterday.
Or maybe it was even the day before yesterday? I don't know!
Regardless, it's time for FLOWERS! 
 I can't wait until the tulips and daffodils start popping up!  
I baked up this batch for my friends at Empowering, Inc. Services to celebrate the March birthdays. 
 Happy birthday Shoba, Jamie, and Elle!

Music to My Ears...and Tummy!

I recently had the opportunity to make some treats for my 
wonderful former flute teacher, Valerie Roubos.  
I am so grateful to her for all the wonderful experiences I had while playing the flute.  
These treats were for her latest recital!
