USC Cupcakes

As a USC alum, the Spirit of Troy is always within and waiting to be shared. When I found out a very talented girl from our ‘hood had been accepted to the USC School of Cinematic Arts I had to jump into … “ACTION“!

USC Cupcakes

Believe me, we are going to see big things from her in the future. Like red carpet Oscar stuff and I’ll be able to say, ” I knew her when she ate my cupcakes!” And she’ll say, “what?” and I’ll tell everyone I know! 🙂

USC Cupackes

She is already quite a cinematographer and has made films with her own production company in high school! Is this amazing or what? I’m so impressed with her passion and focus and USC is very fortunate to have her join their ranks.

It’s my pleasure to welcome her into the Trojan Family and wish her the best of luck in all her endeavors!

USC Cupcakes

Fight On!

Georgetown Cupcake LA Workshop

Happy National Cupcake Day! I decorated these delicious festive cupcakes at the Georgetown Cupcake store in Los Angeles! Let me tell you about it… A few years ago when we were in Washington, DC on a family vacation I made my manly traveling companions (husband and sons) stop at Georgetown Cupcake since I had watched the TLC show “DC Cupcakes”. The line was out the door, it was hot and humid so I didn’t insist on a sampling but I… [Read More]

The Posts of Christmas Cookies Past

Happy, happy holidays! Since I noticed other bloggers and online magazines have been posting photos of my Christmas treats, which I have randomly found, I thought I better post them myself! I haven’t started baking in earnest yet so I’m going to visit The Posts of Christmas Cookies Past! Probably the most fun and interactive cookies I’ve made were the Shake-able Snow Globes Cookies. These White Chocolate Dipped Spritz Cookies are dipped and delish and make fun little packages to… [Read More]

Naughty n’ Nice Gingerbread Men

Hello! This post might be a fine how-do-you-do after a five month blogging break but I realized something – I’ve never gave these spicy guys their own post page last year and like a good mother who loves all her baked children equally, I just had to. Thank you for indulging me. And of course, properly dressed for dinner. Carry On and Happy Holidays! SHARE THIS POST:

Red, White & Blue Patriotic Meringue Heart Cookies

After two weeks of back-to-back political conventions, I’m convinced of the origins of global warming but no matter which candidate actually warms the cockles of your heart we can all come together and agree that meringues are delicious, can’t we? I made these tri-colored meringue hearts for our 4th of July celebrations but thought they would also be the perfect apolitical treat while still showing our patriotic pride. If you’ve been following my blog for the past seven years (!)… [Read More]

Mason Jar Decorated Cookies With Fondant Flowers

June was such a busy month. One that included travel, a memorable birthday get-away celebration and a vineyard wedding. When you think of an elegant country wedding what comes to mind?  For me, it’s Mason jars overflowing with wild flowers! What turned out very nice was that the table centerpieces were Mason jars filled with flowers too. A very personalized touch I added was to paint on a “chalkboard tag” with the bride and groom’s new monogram.  Of course, the… [Read More]

Decorated Sailboat Cookies For A Baby Shower

It seems like baby boys are making their debut in earnest! My last post was all about welcoming a baby boy with a Meet n’ Greet Party and this week I navigated into the waters of making decorated sailboat cookies for another little guy’s baby shower who is soon to arrive!  Such happy occasions! This post isn’t a full step-by-pictoral-step because you’d be scrolling till the tide came in but if you like cookie decorating read on because I do… [Read More]

A Party To Welcome A Sweet Baby Boy

Hello! If you’ve been following me on SweetsToImpress Instagram, you’ve seen pics here and there of the dessert party I created for my great-nephew’s Meet n’ Greet.  I not only had the fun of making all the desserts for the table but I also made the decorations!  I’ve been a very busy great-auntie for weeks but I was also very organized which was a tremendous help in not becoming too stressed to get-it-all-done. Since my niece had no preference for… [Read More]

Champagne Glass Cookies

Happy spring! I hope April is turning out beautifully for you. I thought I’d share with you a couple cookie designs I made for a bridal shower a few weeks before the Easter bunny left us with the flu!  We much rather preferred chocolate bunnies left for us but apparently he didn’t get the memo!  Bad bunny!! While watching re-runs of Celtic Thunder that seemed to always be on PBS that made me feel like a middle-aged groupie that you… [Read More]
