Halloween Cupcakes

I made these Halloween cupcakes for an event last week. They were basic vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream. I put them in these cute Halloween containers and each one had a spider sticking out of it. They were a hit!

1st Birthday

I made both of these cakes for a 1st birthday party. The blue frosted cake was a triple layer, 6-inch vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream.
This was the smash cake for the birthday boy who loves trucks and all things with wheels. It was also vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream.

Luncheon Desserts

I made some desserts for a luncheon recently. I made S'mores Whoopie Pies- 2 graham flavor cake cookies, with marshmallow frosting and chocolate ganache sandwiched in between.
I had marshmallow frosting to spare, so I whipped up a quick batch of my favorite vanilla cupcakes to go along side.

Catering the Perfect Lunch

A month or two ago, I was asked to cater (I love to cook as well as bake!) a small luncheon for the Department Head of one of the schools at UGA. I put together a menu quickly and it was received with rave reviews.

This Greek Salad with Orzo and Black-Eyed Peas was the perfect thing to serve. It is layered in wide mouth mason jars, so each person has their own serving. They are then able to empty their jar into a bowl and enjoy.

I roasted some shrimp with Greek flavors and fresh herbs to accompany the salad.
This Garlicky Red Lentil Dal is one of the best dips I have ever made. It is served with pita chips.
The luncheon was finished off with Mini Key Lime Pies topped with sweetened whipped cream.

This luncheon was so fun to create and prepare and the flavors of the the dishes complimented each other perfectly.
