Fondant Letters

Hi everyone!

My friend Monique's birthday was a few weeks ago, and I wanted to make something special for her, because she's such a sweet friend.  So I prepared the fondant like this, then cut it out with letter cookie cutters.  I put them on cupcakes, and took them to her office.  I think she was really tickled, and she invited coworkers in to share the feast!

You read it across...I was a little limited by only having 12 cupcakes.  :-)   Also, her last name begins with a 'd'A', so I just used an upside down P to make the little d and free formed the apostrophe.

This is a really fun, easy way to brighten a friend's day, and think of all the things you could spell!

Have fun,
Sugar Baby

Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

Hello everyone!

Sorry for my long absence - I've been sick.  I made Ina Garten's peanut butter and jelly bars today, and they were SO GOOD.  Here's the link:  Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars.

They were pretty easy to make, and I substituted seedless strawberry jam instead of raspberry.  I recommend cutting them fairly small, because they're really rich!

Now that I'm feeling a bit better, I'll be posting more regularly...thanks for your patience.
