The other day Claudia was talking about First Lady Dolly Madison. She was quite the fun one. She relished in her first lady duties and pioneered some of the traditions we have today. Dolly Madison believed the more the merrier and any occasion is better with food, lots of people and dancing. Undoubtedly she would have thought these American inspired cookies are a must for any party.

We invite you to come celebrate our independence with the ladies from Sweet Heather Anne. We will show you how to decorate some delicious brown sugar cookies with red, white and blue. What better to bring to your July 4th get-together than these spectacular cookies. Come have some fun and learn some new techniques. You will leave with the recipe and skills to re-create these cookies at home, as well as cookies to share.

All Sweet Heather Anne classes are hands-on, so come ready to work in comfortable clothes. Class fees include all materials. If you would like to bring your own tools that’s fine, but not necessary. We will not provide meals, so plan ahead if you think you’ll need a snack. Payment in full is required to reserve your spot. Bring a friend and receive 15% off their tuition.

Mother’s Day Pop Up

It is a big couple of weekends here at the Sweet Heather Anne Dessert Counter.  Last weekend we were chock full of Michigan themed sweets for graduation.  This week we are gearing up for Mother’s Day.

Not only will we be offering our own very fine desserts decorated beautifully for your mom, we also will be welcoming Hello! Ice Cream & Gelato who will be popping up in our cake studio for the Dessert Counter this Friday from 10-6 and Saturday 9-2.  We can’t wait for all the excitement.

Hello! Ice Cream & Gelato will be selling six packs of their delicious and adorable gelato jewels.  Each package will contain six different flavors to tantalize mom’s taste buds.  In addition they’ll have macaron ice cream sandwiches in your choice of chocolate or raspberry, and ceylon cinnamon ice cream sandwiched between chocolate molasses cookies.

Thank you Penny Stamps

It was a big weekend for the University of Michigan.  In case you haven’t heard, the basketball team played in the NCAA  Division 1 Final Four and National Championship for the first time in twenty years.   Perhaps with less national pomp and circumstance, but no less worthy, is the celebration of  the re-naming of the School of Art & Design to Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design.

Penny Stamps and her husband E. Roe Stamps have been instrumental in positioning the school to become a national leader in art and design education.  Their generosity is particularly poignant to our own Heather Leavitt, Sweet Heather Anne‘s owner and head decorator. Heather not only is a graduate of the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design, she also was a Stamps Scholar.  Much thanks to the leadership and generosity of Penny Stamps, Heather’s time at the University of Michigan sculpted who she is as an artist today, laying the foundation for Sweet Heather Anne‘s signature artistry.

In celebration of the re-naming  Heather created a cake (and accompanying cookies and macarons) to commemorate Penny Stamp’s enormous impact on the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design.

Sweet Heather Anne. Corporate Cakes“Creating this cake was such an honor.  When I was in art school, my thesis involved creating cakes as edible monuments to local farmers and food producers.  Now that I am a local food producer, it was amazing to have the opportunity to create an edible monument to Penny Stamps and the art school.  I feel like I’ve really come full circle.  It was awesome to see all of my Professors, and celebrate Penny, and everything she has done for the school and the arts. ” -Heather

Celebrate Spring in Style

I love Easter because it means that spring is coming.  After a long winter of bitter cold and lots of snow, the pastel colors and green buds add welcome cheer and a reminder of what is to come.

We are so exited about spring, and welcome you to celebrate with us Sweet Heather Anne style.  Thursday March 28th we’ll be teaching our Easter Cookie Decorating class.  Students will learn our signature cookie decorating techniques, leaving with two dozen decorated cookies and the skills and recipes for dozens more.

Sweet Heather Anne Custom Cake Boutique

The Dessert Counter will be featuring gorgeous treats perfect for Easter baskets and celebrations.  In case you miss the class we’ll be selling our decorative sugar cookies in dozens and 2-packs.  Our Easter cake is 6-inches and serves 8-10 guests.  It features lemon cake layered with lemon and raspberry curds and covered in a light pink vanilla Swiss buttercream.  All topped with our adorable Easter banner.
