I love Girl Scout time. For some reason, I get inspiration from Thin Mints. This year, my friend Dawn LaFrance told me to crush a sleeve and stir it into brownie mix. Out of luck, I'm sure, my sister had a box of Ghirradelli DARK chocolate brownie mix with chunks! Mmmmm....chuuuunks.

It's been awhile since I posted something at Kimmie Kakes, but I'm still around - making and baking stuff.
Christmas is fudge time in our home. We made a new fudge this year - it's white chocolate with fruit gummies that gave a nice stained glass effect. As always, I followed my mother's famous recipe as a base.
I'm upset with Disney World on this one, though. They need to put more Mickey heads in their sprinkles that they sell.
Still a very pretty 1/4 lb. of fudge.

I made this cake for my friend's baby shower. The bears looked great face on, with details like hair on his elbows and, legs and ears. On the side this photo makes them look like gorillas. Ha!
Purple, yellow, green, blue and pink bears sit on top of a two layer cake 10 inch cake with rainbow chip frosting. I love that stuff, even if it is store bought! It's what Heather requested and I can't disappoint a client.

This cake was carved into the shape of Australia with the nation's flag and two funny koala bears on top. I'm excited to say the fondant was homemade and tasted great! The cake is chocolate with almond-vanilla icing; it reminded me of a big Oreo cookie inside.
Happy 90th Birthday, Mutti! Mutti's family is originally from Tasmania, so it was important that I include the southeast island. All of her grandchildren got together for an Australian themed birthday party complete with music and dancing. I felt honored to be a part of this special day.
