Share a Spoon Theme - Sweet Dreams

Share a Spoon Theme Time

"Sweet Treats"

Happy Saturday Smackers!  It's been quite sometime since we had a sweet theme.  I know some of you don't participate in the savory themes but you love to participate in baking!  I thought it was time to give you all a chance to share your confections too!

I guess I am in sweet treats mode anyway.  I made cupcakes for Mini-Me's birthday party last weekend and I made a cake w/cupcakes for a friend as well.  I could have eaten the butter cream frosting with a spoon and been happy!  It was so yummy!

I used black, white and orange fondant to make the penguins.  The cake and cupcakes are covered with a butter cream frosting.  The snow is also butter cream.  I also dusted the blue frosting with a pearl powder so that it glistened like snow.  The little girl this cake was for was thrilled!  She loved the penguins!

So back to theme, this week anything sweet goes.  Cookies, cakes, cupcakes, pies, anything that tickles your fancy or satisfies your sweet tooth!  If you share a recipe this week you also get 5 entries for my Gevalia giveaway!  If you haven't entered yet, get over there and enter!!

See you Smackers on Thursday for sweet sweet treats!!

I said it on FB already, but I think you are totally awesome for making these penguin cupcakes and cake. They look amazing and I might just have to steal the idea for Jordy's bday next week.
