Visions of Fancy Cakes

Little Miss Emma, she's so my child. I love to cook and specifically would love to be able to make fancy cakes, cookies, cupcakes aka something along the lines of Bakerella but the emphasis is on the desire. Unfortunately the actual product never quite works out like the pictures. I know my limits and just know the cute little snowmen cake pops on her site would NEVER turn out that cute in my kitchen. But I digress. Emma has those same exact desires I do and it tickled the absolute daylights out of me when she asked for a 'Girl Gourmet Bakery' for Christmas. Even better, Santa was kind enough to oblige.

We finally got around to trying it out the other day and it took us what seemed like an hour to make one little bitty cake that was eaten in about 2.3 seconds. But the main thing, we had a blast working on it together! Can't wait to try it again!

Such a cute picture... love Emma's chin on the plate. I love baking, too, so can understand how excited you would be to share this with her.

What a great picture! We enjoy hanging out in the kitchen too. We still need to get the kids together for a bake date.

I love it! How sweet that you will be able to share this love with her for many many years.
