Empire State Cookie.

My first attempt at building a Gingerbread "House." I chose the Empire State Building because it is an iconic part of New York and a beacon of light during the holiday season. I didn't realize it would be so nerve-wracking a project. I'm just glad nothing broke. It stands at a tad over 20 inches. The real building is 1453 feet, 8 and 9/16 inches. That's a lot of frosting.

A Little To The Left, Please.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa. A tribute to my beloved Italy. Constructed of Sugar Cookies and Marshmallow Krispy Treats. Held together and frosted in Royal Icing.

Holiday Cupcakes.

For the Gentiles. Holiday cupcakes. Classic Red Velvet with Cream Cheese frosting, sugar sprinkles and Royal Icing Decorations.

Blue Velvet?

Happy Hanukkah! "Blue Velvet," cupcakes to celebrate the Festival of Lights. To all my Jewish friends...Chag Sameach!

I'm Back to Bake for the Holidays.

After a month of traveling to Italy, Arizona and Puerto Rico...I'm back in the kitchen. I hope you enjoy.
