Today I finished a unique lego cake and cupcakes. All the lego pieces are edible and made out of chocolate which fooled Josh at first lol.
Last week we celebrated one of my good friend’s 25th birthday with a surprise party which was her loving hubby’s idea. Paul came to Alasha & I with the idea of throwing a party for the love of his life because she was reaching one of life’s milestone birthday and we immediately volunteered to help. Alasha made the reservation and gave out the invitations and I was in charge of getting the birthday girl to the restaurant and of course making the cake.
So Tracie thought that she and Paul were meeting Alyssa, Josh & I for dinner. And she never suspected otherwise so it was so cool to see the pure surprise when she saw her family and friends all sitting together and everyone yelled SURPRISE! It was truly awesome 🙂 All in all the evening was a success and after good food with good company we had dessert and finally went home after closing down the restaurant.
Hope you had a wonderful birthday Tracie!
Friday we had a March of Dimes (MOD) bake sale fund raiser so I whipped up some Peanut Butter Truffles
When I was getting towards the end of making the truffles Lyss gets up for the day and joined me in the kitchen to watch me finish up. When she asked if she could have one I let her have a small piece…to my horror she immediately goes to the kitchen trash can and spits it out. I am thinking oh my goodness all of these truffles taste horrible…what am I going to do?! I pull it together and ask Lyss why she spit out the truffle and if they taste bad to which her response was…Mommy I’m sorry but those cake bites taste like peanut butter, which made me let out a sigh of relief and I shared that they are peanut butter truffles which Lyss replied…well then Mommy they definitely taste the way they are supposed but you forgot that I don’t like peanut butter. Whew! Disaster avoided lol
Usually I have tunnel vision the week before Alyssa’s birthday party because there is always so many last minute details that need my attention not to mention that I am baking her cake & other treats (so they will be fresh) and we always make the food ourselves. But this year when a friend came up to me about a month ago and asked if I would please make her nephew Angry Bird cupcakes and cake pops for the same day as A-Bear’s party I couldn’t tell her no, especially since I love helping people’s faces light up with special treats on their special day (truly that is what it is all about).
However, when my ever jokester hubby delivered them he told Barb that I was so sorry for the way they came out and hope she would forgive me (so so mean!) thankfully she loved both the cupcakes and cake pops despite hubby’s bad joke (he did come clean and tell her he just wanted to scare her for a moment).
Hope Nick had a wonderful birthday!
Well Valentines Day/Week is officially over and I want to personally say thank you for everyone who placed an order and to those select few who placed multiple orders. I can’t tell y’all how appreciative/honored I am that you utilized Delicious Delights to make your holiday special. This was my first big holiday and I am really looking forward to many more to come!
