My friend's little boy just celebrated his first birthday. As favors she wanted large iced sugar cookies. Here are the 6 inch cookies that I cut out. By hand. With an Exacto knife. All 50 of them.

In my son's pre-school class, the kids get to take turns bringing in snacks. Last week, my Zeker Man got to have his snack day. Since our elementary schools don't allow homemade treats, I will send in yummy homemade goodies until he reaches kindergarten. We always have so much fun coming up with something for him to pass out to his friends. Here are the colorful spring sugar cookies that we made this time.
I recently had an order for 2 large sheet cakes for a surprise 70th birthday party. For most bakers this would be a cake walk, so to speak. For me, however, it involved an all-nighter with several trips to Taco Bell for caffeine reinforcements. I was just a bit nervous about this undertaking. Here is what I came up with. Keep in mind this was my first attempt at a sheet cake (I seem to say that a lot).
