What's baking?  There was an online offer on black Friday that was too good to pass up- a great price on the Cricut Cake Machine including free shipping.  I finally took it our of the box and started playing!  Cookies are chocolate mocha and cake is Double Chocolate Layer Cake based on recipe on Epicurious with a white chocolate ganache and bananas foster filling.

Cake Decorating Party Preparations!

What's baking?
Preparing for a cake decorating party! Baking, cutting, icing,  coloring icing, filling bags.  Ready to go!


What's baking?
This Cake Decorating Party was so much fun!  I provided everything!  We started out with a short demonstration on a few techniques.  Everyone learned a little about decorating cakes and then was able to try on their own.  Each guest took home their own decorated mini-cake in a box!
