Maroon, Silver and Black Graduation Cake and Cupcakes

My cousin graduated from high school! I remember when she was born- I was a freshman in high school, and I got to watch her grow up as I went to her house after school.  Her school colors were maroon, black and silver.  The graduation cap on the top of the cake was made out of cookies and cream chocolate wafers in a chocolate mold, and the flowers were made of fondant and each had a black dragee placed in the middle. The 2012 on the top of the cake were sparklers that lit up and really made a fun impression when they were lit!  I also made about 100 cupcakes with a graduation cap and a small silver and black flower adorning the top of each.  What a fun project for a wonderful person!

Engagement Party Sugar Cookies

This is going to be a quick post- I know, you're thrilled! :)  I just wanted to post my wedding sugar cookies- well, actually, engagement party sugar cookies.  They were made with the most awesome sugar cookie recipe from Cookie Crazie's Blog (this woman is awesome and does her missionary work using the funds she raises decorating cookies- she is truly talented and a real Proverbs 31 woman- inspirational!).  Here they are- I hope the bride-and-groom-to-be enjoy them!

I also made a set of wedding dress and tuxedo chocolate covered strawberries for the same event :)
