It’s Giveaway Time!!

Everyone love free stuff!  And even better than free stuff, is free cake. Because you can eat it and don’t have to keep dusting around it.  So two lucky winners will get free goodies this week.

To enter the giveaway, you need to Like Amandolin Kitchen over on Facebook.  http://www.facebook.com/amandolinkitchenbakery

Then, come back here and leave a comment on this post that says you’ve liked my Facebook page, and something you’re celebrating in the next month (come on, dig deep people.  There is always something to celebrate.  I don’t mind if you’re reaching.  Friday is always a good reason for a party. If all else fails, use Halloween, but I’m not making you an all black cake.  That would take gobs of food coloring.)

Puppy Cookies

This time next week, I’ll use a random number generator to pick two numbers.  The comments that corresponds to the numbers generated will be the winners.  Winner #1 will receive an 8″ round cake decorated to the theme of your party/celebration.  Winner #2 will receive 2 dozen cookies, also decorated to the them of your party/celebration.

Good luck, friends!

Puppies!

These cookies were just begging to be made!  Done freehand on a round cookie, because I couldn’t find a cookie cutter to match my vision.  One of the funnest cookies I’ve done to date, and I’m thrilled with how they turned out.

Leaves and Sunflowers

No sooner had Labor Day come and gone then Fall was upon us.  Overnight the weather changed from scorching 90 degree days (I’m in Ohio, that’s hot for here!) to chilly mornings and cool evenings.  To me, nothing says fall like sunflowers.  So I made a few.

Happy Sunflowers

Fall also means beautiful leaves.  I took a different approach, and used ivory on ivory to give these cookies a subtle and elegant feel.

I love this time of year!

Roses and Ruffles

Another chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream and raspberry filling.  The chocolate and raspberry combo is really a winner.  All decorations are done in butter cream.

Roses and Ruffles

I’m especially pleased with these fun, girly ruffles.

Arr! Pirate Cake

This was for a little boy’s 6th birthday.  Happy Birthday Emory!!

Pirate Cake

The skull and cross bones, and the map were all made from fondant.  The lettering and treasure trail is royal icing.  What a fun cake to make!

Chocolate Roses

I’ve been looking for an excuse to play with modeling chocolate.  I couldn’t really find one, so I made a cake.  That’s a good excuse, right?  Just a small one.  6″ round two layer white cake with raspberry filling and vanilla buttercream under rolled fondant.  Fondant bow.  Chocolate roses.  They were so much fun to make, I’ll need to find another excuse to do it again soon.
