Love, Mom

One of my repeat customers recently ordered a care package for both her son and daughter.


Each care package included:
12 Small Classic Chocolate Chippers
12 Small Molasses Cookies
12 Small Sinckerdoodles
2 Sticky Buns with Walnuts & Golden Raisins
4 Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes

Each package also included a typed personal message from their mom.

This order is the first of many care package orders I hope to fill. 
Stay on the look out for a list of standard care package options!

For the Break Room

My mom recently volunteered with a Vacation Bible School program and requested miniature cinnamon buns for the volunteer break room. I was more than happy to bake them as I have been perfecting my cinnamon bun recipe. 


I made about 60 miniature cinnamon buns, topped with cream cheese icing. 


My mom brought 40 into the VBS break room, and my dad took the rest to his office. 
 They were a big hit in both break rooms!

And they are the perfect snack size for any time of the day!

Middle States Welcome Bags

It's been a while since I've written a post, having been caught up with assignments and events preceding my college graduation. But, now it's time for some updates.


A few weeks before graduation I was contacted by the President's Office with an order request for 80 chocolate chip cookies to be included in a gift bags for the members of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. I was thrilled to receive this request shortly after the Washington College Magazine publication including the article highlighting Sweetly Entwined, the article was even attached to the cookie bags along with my business card!

Julia in Wonderland

In a little over a week my cousin, Julia, will be walking down the aisle to be married.  I can't wait to share this special day with her and her future hubby, and am honored to be one of her bridesmaids.  


A few weeks ago, I helped fulfill the important bridesmaids duty of hosting a bridal shower in her honor.  Both Julia and her fiance are big tea-drinkers, so we decided on an Alice in Wonderland theme, a bridal shower tea, hats and all.  


As the family baker, I volunteered to make the desserts: sugar cookies and cupcakes.  


The sweet treats decorated in line with the theme. 

The chocolate cupcakes were topped with a light purple-vanilla butter cream frosting, the white cupcakes with a light pink-vanilla butter cream frosting, and the cookies with a light blue royal icing. 

We also served a variety of teas and an assortment of finger food. 

To complete the experience, we decorated the house with themed signs, 
made by the Matron of Honor. 





The bridal shower tea party was a success! My favorite part was the collection of pantry items and recipe cards brought by each guest. (She even got the recipe to one of my cupcakes).

What's Thanksgiving Without Pie?

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is pie--pumpkin, apple, fudge, and more.  Though I'm partial to apple, pumpkin pie is almost synonymous with Thanksgiving dessert which is why a close friend of mine ordered a gluten free pumpkin pie.  While pie is not officially on my menu until after my graduation, it his hard to find delicious gluten free treats, and there's almost nothing I wouldn't do for a close friend.  
unfortunately the crust fell in while the pie was baking, but that didn't affect the deliciousness!

The recipes yeilded extra pie crust and filling, so I made individual pies, for my aunt who is also gluten free.  I made both apple and pumpkin, the pies my family has every Thanksgiving.

One Happy Lieutenant

While my brother attended the Air Force Academy, I would send my baked goods to him and his friends.  Now that they've graduated and stationed all over the country, it's harder for me to send them treats.  

Mike is nearby for training, so he came to watch my swim meet and catch up with my mom and me.  He correctly assumed we would have baked goods for him, but didn't know just how much we had made...

I made molasses cookies--which taste like christmas--and my classic chocolate chip cookies; my mom made him chewy chocolate cake cookies and her infamous peanut butter rice kripie treats; and my friend, Marcela, made some sugar cookies.  


You can never have too many cookies and treats, right?
