Piano Cookie, Star Wars Cookies, Pillow Cake, and a Garden Tea Party Cake!

Wow! It's been a busy few weeks! Needless to say, kitchen clean up awaits me. Ugh. Here are a few of my baking projects from recent weeks.
These cute piano cookies are actually from a while ago, but I'm trying to go back and post old pictures from January-March. These were for a piano recital at Burlington Day School. Thanks Laura!

These were for another BDS student who celebrated his birthday last Sunday. He shared these with his classmates and the rest were for his family party. I added 3 new characters this time! All of these are hand cut, and several of them are have hand painting. I photographed my way through the Yoda cookie and I'm working on a tutorial! Thanks again Shylon!

This was a fun project. This is a pillow cake I carved from a 8 inch square cake. Covered in fondant and made a gumpaste crown. I love the matching cupcakes! Thanks Helen!

And my last project for this wonderful Easter weekend. A sweet little cake for a tea party birthday. The birthday girl requested dirt, grass, pink, purple, tulips, roses, butterflies and a caterpillar. Whew! I'm glad she wasn't too specific! It was really fun trying to have all of those elements on the cake and throw in a teapot too. I love how it turned out. This one is the main reason my kitchen is such a mess! Gumpaste flowers = big mess. At least in my kitchen! Thanks a bunch Susan and I hope the party was lots of fun! Elizabeth is such a sweetie!

And now...clean up!
