Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and we couldn’t help but feature a wedding that has all the charm of this saints’ day. One of the most adorable weddings this year had to be Liz and John. The talented Chelsea Brown took some incredible pictures of the day. We loved getting to make a two tiered ruffle buttercream cake in light pink, lots of mini cupcakes, precious french macarons in hues of gold and pink and gorgeous decorated sugar cookies. Liz took an awesome DIY approach and it sure paid off. She made an amazing back drop of glimmer-y circles, gold hearts and pompoms; set it all against a barn back drop decorated with big blush peonies and you get one charming wedding.

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.
