Flossy and Sophie Have Been Baking Again

Yes, Flossy and Sophie have been back in the kitchen again, baking up delicious treats. They enjoy spending time together, true, but they also enjoy eating the fruits of their labors, so to speak! This time has been no different, except that I finally had time to work with polymer clay again (last time was when I showed you some cakes I made several months ago). Today's treats were all made by me (with Flossy and Sophie's help, of course).


I've been working with some mini molds I bought, and I've also been learning some new techniques! First I made some pink kawaii-style bunny "peeps," just in time for Easter:


Next, I made some mini candy bars. Flossy has already taken a big bite out of this one. She hopes Sophie won't notice her most indelicate chomp!


While Flossy was munching chocolate, Sophie was decorating chocolate cookies with thick, rich, creamy frosting, as thick as she could possibly spread it. She prefers twice as much frosting as cookie! ;-) As you can see, Sophie is a bit of a messy baker, having spread frosting not only on the cookies but also all over the mug.


Speaking of cookies, the ones in front of Sophie were made using molds. I feel that they look more like bakery cookies than homemade ones.


Yes, there's been a lot of baking going on at Cupcake Cottage. Besides the goodies I've already shown you, I've been working on biscuits, ice cream sandwiches, donuts, and Pop Tarts. Those are still in process. We (Sophie, Flossy, and I) wanted to make something really special to share with all of you. It's a rich chocolate torte with cherry sauce. Mmm, doesn't it look yummy?!


Have a bite, my friends. You deserve something delicious to nibble on.

  13. Oh my, what a special post... and above all a yummy post. All those delicious treats, just looking at all those goodies made me gain a pound - and looking at this special creamy chocolate cake made me gain another! *LOL* Btw - psssssst... Sophie... *whisper* try to add some more frosting to make those cookies extra extra special... I'm sure you can manage to have a frosting three times as thick as the cookie! ;O) This lovely and special post made my Friday - and it's so generous of you to offer this very special giveaway. I know my bearies would like a creamy chocolate cake like this... oh, and I almost forgot to write the word... *teehee* Well, that's easy: It's people like you that make blogland a special place!

Please, remind her to call me when everything is just out of the oven....I'm sure she would love to invite a special person like me.....Very well done on the chocolate cake!! It does look very chocolaty!!! What's wrong with me today???? I can't find any other adjective than special...I probably need to learn more English words!!!

  23. Hi Jennifer! Thank you for such a special blog post! So many special treats, they all look beautiful! I hadn't heard of 'kawaii style' they must be something special! The candy bar is especially special, it's just the kind of bar I could chew on for ever!
    I agree with Sophie, lots of frosting on cookies makes them more special! I'm sure we could all forgive the mess!
    Thank you for the special chance to win a special prize on your special blog! It's always fun!
    Kind regards, Brian.
