Cookies - Raspberry Linzer

When I saw these on a TV show, I just knew I had to make them.  They are so buttery and delicious! I cut down on the sugar just a bit by using sugar free raspberry preserves, but you can't even tell the difference!  There a couple of firsts here - the first time I've made a cookie without using eggs, or baking powder, or baking soda.  And the first time I've made a sandwich cookie.  I'm thinking these would be good with a bit of orange zest as well.  I have a feeling these will get eaten up pretty fast!

Cake - Gothic Masquerade Party!

I am going to go ahead and call this my cake of the year!  I have done a few other big cakes this year, but this is the biggest. The theme was a Gothic Masquerade Party at a REAL castle in Bellville, Texas.  The cake above is a two tier cake, the top layer was pumpkin with cream cheese filling, and the bottom was chocolate with a chocolate with a chocolate cream filling.  The entire cake was then covered in vanilla buttercream.  The decorations are all edible and made of fondant.  Happy 40th Birthday to the birthday girl and thank you SO much for choosing me to make this awesome cake!

Check out Newman's Castle in Bellville, Texas!

And I dressed up a little for the event...

Cake - Hummingbird Cake Sampler

Hummingbird cake sample!  I tried a new recipe ... I hadn't heard of this cake until recently and it seemed fairly easy to smells like banana bread because it is made with bananas, but it also has pineapple and pecans, and then topped with cream cheese.  I baked this in a mini bundt pan and oh my - what an interesting combination!  My daughter actually did a happy dance when she tasted it!
