These are some of the various cookies we made for Christmas, 2008. The mitten and lightbulb are gingerbread with royal icing, and the cookies on the plate are greek kourambiedes (icing sugar coated, almond shortbread) and melomakarona (honey dipped, spiced, orange walnut cookies).
Michael turned 4 and only wanted a Cars themed birthday. The two tiered cake was all chocolate with chocolate buttercream filling. The cookies were also chocolate with boyish and girlish themes to appeal to the guests.
This frosty cake and matching cookies were made for Lindsay. Inside the cake was chocolate cake with vanilla filling and vanilla cake with lemon buttercream and raspberry preserves. The co-ordinating cookies were all vanilla flavoured with vanilla royal icing.
My little girl turned 5 in December, and wanted a magic themed birthday party. This is all cake with fondant decorations, except for the whiskers which are wire. Inside the stacked cake was moist banana cake with nutella filling and chocolate cake with vanilla filling.
