Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache and chocolate butter cream frosting
Chocolate chip cookie with cookie dough icing!
For the husband’s birthday
I made some Penguin themed food for a Penguin Party.
I made sugar cookies featuring the three types of Penguins.
This cake depicted an Adelie Penguin couple. One of them is setting on a nest of (chocolate) pebbles and the other one is at the bottom of the penguin highway.

I was inspired by Pinterest to make these bread bowls. I used this recipe for the bread bowl.
I can no longer send a plate of Christmas cookies to my husband’s office because one of his colleagues will eat ALL the communal food before 10AM. Since I still want to send the rest of the people Christmas cookies, I decided to send everyone a personal cookie pack.
Everyone got a couple of sugar cookies (one with their initial), a couple of oatmeal cookies and a couple of chocolate chip cookies. The husband and I spent an hour wrapping all the packages.
I made slightly bigger packages for my assistants and some friends.
This is a package for people at my office.
I may have baked a few hundred cookies. I definitely used 5lbs of butter.
My department’s office manager retired after 30 years. She is planning to spend a lot of time at the beach, so I made her a beach cake. This is a white cake with butter cream frosting. The sand is brown sugar and all the details are made of fondant. My husband helped with all the details. Unfortunately, the turtle gave the little crab a black eye during transportation.
I had some left-over sheet cake, so I made a quick Frankenstein Cake for my husband’s office. The cake is red velvet with cream cheese frosting colored green. The decorations are candy melts. The bolts are marshmallows dipped in chocolate.
My colleague had kidney stones, so I made him a kidney cake. Because you can’t eat a get well soon card.
It is a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting that I died red. I put chocolate stones inside it to represent the kidney stones.
