We are so happy to share with you Brooke and Sammy’s red carpet wedding at the historic Fox Theater. Every detail, including the towering cake, mirror the opulence of the lobby. The dessert tables were a collaborative effort with the Bride’s Detroit bakery, Love and Buttercream. We hope you’ll agree that the macaron towers are a wonderfully decadent flourish.
The groom’s cake is an edible homage to Detroit today. Look closely to see all of Brooke and Sammy’s favorite haunts! Does it include any of your favorites (or are you more of an American Coney fan)?
It was so fun to receive these beautiful photos by Julie Pepin of Karissa and Cliff’s outdoor Michigan wedding (especially of the cake cutting)! We were able to do what we do best, and I think you’ll agree that the overall effect is stunning. Everything is edible– gum paste flowers, fondant bark & royal icing moss.
I have to admit the Michigan football thing is contagious. Moving here from San Francisco, at first I was confused. The traffic was bothersome, the college kids rowdier and things seem to stop when Michigan gets on the field. But slowly my dislike has turned into pride. I ask for scores, watch games (um…sometimes) and oh yeah… decorate cookies. Imagine a chilly fall evening decorating cookies amongst friends.
Our Michigan football cookie class is one of my favorites. I love the adorable helmets, the mini footballs and those deliciously attractive block M’s. Plus, you get to take home enough cookies to share on game day. I also find the royal icing techniques taught and practiced in the class can only make your cookies the envy of others. And come on, what’s better than that! You take away practical experience and tricks to make your cookies look professional bakery quality. Plus, you get my favorite brown sugar cookie recipe. I have been known to eat so much of the dough.
Come join us for the first class of the fall/winter 2013 line up. We would love to see you there.
Coming soon: Thursday November 7th at 5:30 -8:00pm

Coming off a big win last week felt good. Actually it felt great. But we still have a lot more season ahead. And that means a lot more tailgates, parties and eating some delicious Sweet Heather Anne maize and blue treats. At our dessert counter during a Michigan home game, we will offer some of our favorite treats to celebrate maize and blue. But you can also pre-order a variety of sweets: decorated cookies, cupcakes, football helmet cakes, maize and blue macarons. Contact us for more information at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
And don’t forget: you can learn how to make Michigan M cookies at our November 7th cookie class!
We had the pleasure of chefing at SELMA cafe this past Friday. For those of you not in the Ann Arbor area SELMA is a weekly local foods breakfast salon, celebrating Michigan’s bounty and the community by which the bounty is both fueled and supported. Every week local food professionals (supported by loads of other volunteers from all walks of life) volunteer their time and skills to create a delicious breakfast for the community.
If you have never been, I highly recommend it. The joy and energy surrounding this weekly ritual are inspiring. It is testimony to the strength of the community that it keeps happening, every week, and has only been growing stronger.
Creating a delicious local foods breakfast during winter in Michigan is not an easy feat. But we managed, much thanks to Zingerman’s Creamery and the Brinery. The menu included a spicy potato hash (with greens, sausage, and Brinery kimchi topped with a fried egg and a side of toast) and a potato, kale, and bacon tart (with Zingerman’s Creamery Great Lakes Cheshire and Lincoln Log cheeses and a side of hoop house greens). For dessert we served Sweet Heather Anne Cookies: Mexican shortbread and chewy chocolate molasses (a personal favorite).
