    Hi I’m new to the forum, not too experienced of a baker, it’s become a hobby this past year, but i just wanted to say that your cookie art is incredible. :) Here’s a couple of cheesecakes I made when i first started baking.

    They look as delicious as I'm sure they taste!! Now I'll be craving cheesecake. :) Thank you for the compliment on my cookies. It's a true labor of love... as I believe all baking is.

    Forgot to post these. They went over very well for Christmas, Hanukkah and just a winter treat.

    Those snowflake cookies are so cute! :) What did you use for the ice crystals?

    Thank you! The crystals are sold by Wilton. They're basically sprinkles but cut larger.

    Forgot to add a photo of the cake I made for Christmas day! We wanted something a little lighter than traditional Christmas pudding, so I made an Orange & Cardamom cake. Here is the recipe: https://www.nigella.com/recipes/clementine-cake (I added about 1.5tsp ground cardamom, and it's topped with homemade candied orange slices)

    I didn't want the pictures that big or cut off. The way I post them, it gives people the choice if they want to open and view them or not.

    OK, my niece's fifth birthday is today, and I made the most elaborate cake I've made yet for it. A few months ago at her brother's second birthday, she requested a Unicorn cake, and her mother (my sister) made a more detailed request of me. I'm really happy about this cake, and hope that maybe it's time for me to really start that business I've always talked about.
    The cake is Vanilla Buttermilk cake, and the frosting is American Buttercream.

    Please tell me what you think.

    Happy Valentines Day! Those cookies are so pretty, I love the black, white and red one (1st pic, top left). It's really striking! :D

    Just finished these. The birthday party took place at the movie theater where the kids got to see "How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World." More in the next post.
