Happy 240th Birthday, America

For Independence Day this year I participated in my second Peachtree Road Race, here in Atlanta. The night before, I joined the Team RWB - Atlanta Chapter for a pre-race pasta dinner. Of course, I had to bring patriotic desserts with me, to celebrate America's 240th Birthday!

A red, white, and blue velvet American Flag cake, USA cookies, and Eagle Cookies. 

Just a little 'Merica on a plate.

Pretty in Pink, Sassy in Style

What better way to celebrate your birthday with your friends, than with a Strawberry Cake and High Heel Sugar Cookies. 




This sweet strawberry cake is perfectly balanced by a sweet and tart strawberry frosting, with rich chocolate frosting to finish it off. The order was completed by the a few dozen sassy high-heel sugar cookies.

Team RWB ~ Board of Directors

When I learned the Team Red, White & Blue Board of Directors was going to meet in Atlanta, I planned to welcome them to the city with some Eagle Cookies. 

So once again I turned the logo into cookies for the Board to enjoy during their meetings


Founder and Chairman of the Board,
Mike Erwin, with an Eagle Cookie.

My next idea was to make a cake fitting for the leaders who support, enable, and guide Team RWB, the organization and its members pursue the mission to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity.


I delivered the cake to the unsuspecting Board, right as they finished dinner.

They loved the Eagle logo, but the surprise was waiting on the inside.

Each slice of this Eagle Cake was an American Flag.

This patriotic dessert was a combination of red velvet, white, and blue velvet cakes, with cream cheese icing.

I used the extra cake layers to make some cake red velvet and blue velvet cake truffles. 




An Ode to Oreos

Here's a peek in the Sweetly Entwined Test Kitchen.....

They may look like simple Dark Chocolate and Red Velvet Cookies, but I kicked them up a notch...




















They're cream filled, and absolutely divine.
Oreo may claim to be "Milk's Favorite Cookie," but these sure give Oreo a run for its money.
























The sweet cream cheese filling brings balance to the rich dark chocolate and red velvet flavors; it's  an ode to Oreos that doesn't disappoint.

The Latest in Red Velvet...

I'm very excited to announce another addition to my menu: Red Velvet Cookies


These beauties embrace all the deliciousness of Red Velvet Cake, but in cookie form. 

Order these sweet treats with or without white chocolate chips, the choice is yours! They're delightful either way.  I'm also tinkering with a cream-filled version, coming soon!

A German Chocolate Birthday

"Do you make German Chocolate Cake?" A good friend of mine asked me, the other day. I said I never had, but I definitely could! So she placed an order for a German Chocolate birthday cake. 


I researched several recipes, and since the recipes only varied slightly in ingredient measurements, mixing methods, etc, it was easy to find a solid base recipe; which I will start tinkering with to achieve sweet perfection.) 


Making the cake was a breeze. 
It was light and airy chocolatey deliciousness, and the icing was a sweet'n'toasty caramelized combination of coconut and pecans. 











 I was hesitant about the icing, it sure tasted delicious, but since I had never made or even tried German Chocolate Cake, I wasn't sure if it was the right delicious taste.  
Happy Happy Birthday, Josh! 
I hope your day was as sweet as this cake :)
