One of my best friends, Shelley, is getting married in March and this past Saturday was her bridal shower. I made her a cookie that matched her wedding invitation and attached it to her present as the tag! (The purple ribbon came out fine, but the coloring on the cookie looks blue, it is actually purple).

My friend was having a girls movie night and I just cannot show up empty handed, so I needed something quick and easy! I remembered what I saw on a blog I read a few months ago and opted to make that!!
5. Put the entire tray in your freezer to let the chocolate harden, for about 10 minutes.

Again, I baked all day long on the 31st for my mom's 50th birthday party later than night. The main thing I was baking was a two tier cake. The top tier was a chocolate cake and the bottom was vanilla. I hand-piped the design on all 4 sides of the cake. The bow and the fifty are made of fondant and then covered in glitter! The cake was a huge hit!
I made a ton of cookies for my mom's dessert table, for her birthday. They were all 5's and 0's. The cookies are all silver and then decorated with blue and black. You cannot tell in any of the pictures, but they are all covered in glitter as well, so they have a light shimmer!
Friday, December 31st was my mother's 50th birthday so she had a birthday party/New Year's Eve party! I was in charge of desserts and I decided to do an entire dessert buffet. I made cupcakes with whipped chocolate ganache, a two-tier chocolate and vanilla cake, brownies, sugar cookies, chocolate covered strawberries, M&Ms, white chocolate covered pretzels, and my sister made the while oreo balls. I added two pictures of her when she was little and another as a teen, she was not too thrilled about that! lol. It was a total success, almost everything was gone by the end of the night!
My sister and I decorated the house with 50 balloons and I also made her a birthday sign to hang on their fireplace mantle.
Happy Birthday Mom! I hope everyone has a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
