Valentine's Cookies for the office

Made these cookies and cake balls to share with my co-workers (and a second tray just like it for Jim to share with his!)

I need to start taking pictures with my camera instead of my phone, and in daylight instead of when I finish things at 10 pm :)

Rose cupcakes!

I've been seeing lots of rose cupcakes on the baking blogs I visit . . . there's so much to see and learn on the web!  Here's my first attempt . . . not too bad, though I will experiment with other buttercream recipes as this one didn't give the smooth, crisp edges i've seen in some pictures.

Here's one of the two dozen chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream roses I made for the Teacher Appreciation luncheon at my kids' school today!

Made these roll-out chocolate chip cookies for some sweet neighbor girls who were turning five.
