Here We Go!

Happy Birthday, Scooter!

Four years ago, right about now, I was waking up and realizing that the 14th would be the day that Scoot would be joining us in the world. So, it seems appropriate that I'm still up getting things ready for his party day... and, that it's a very stormy night — in honor of the little stormbringer.

He wanted a "helicopter-drawing cake," and so here it is, in frozen buttercream transfer. He chose the many colors, and (with the help of his Papa) wants "pineapple cake with pineapple filling." The baking, etc. will have to be done later this morning, or in the afternoon... we'll see. Luckily, he and big sis will be a school for a few hours later today.

Happy Birthday, litttle E! You are my very favorite little fellow in the whole, wide world!

Santa in Ski Goggles & Nutcracker Mice

Baked all weekend, and am just ready for some R&R now. Will post recipes (including one for the perfect Madeline cookies) when I have time (which might not be this week, judging from the calendar).
Italian Cucidatti (filled fig-orange-cocoa) cookies, Rugelach, Chocolate Cherry cookies, Play Dough cookie cutouts, Light Chai Shortbread Slices, Nutcracker Mice and Santa, Coconut Macaroons, Snickers-filled Peanut Butter cookies, Play Dough shaped-trees cookies, Madeline cookies, and Oatmeal Coconut cookies. That's all for now.
