Once upon a time...
I had a longing to learn to decorate cakes and cookies.
I finally did something about it.
Two summers ago, I took a Wilton Cake Decorating Basics class at a local craft store.
I was hooked.
And although I do enjoy cake decorating...
COOKIES have really become my thing lately.
I do some cakes...but consider myself a real amateur.
They generally turn out good...but cookies have been my passion lately.
Cookies and cake pops are a lot of fun.
When I started my "Sweet Ivy Confections" Facebook page a little over a year ago, I never dreamed that I'd gain over 1000+ fans!
To say thank-you, for all of your love, encouragement, support, advice, and orders...
I did a little giveaway!
Carla R. was our winner!
She was contacted via Facebook and has picked up her cookies.
I really enjoy doing floral cookies.
I will admit, the weather (humidity) gave me some fits.
Any baker will tell you...humidity is our worst nightmare when it comes to royal icing.
So, these cookies and I had words...we had "bubbles", and some "separating".
But all in all...I think they turned out ok.
Our winner was delighted...and that's enough for me!
Thank-you all so much for continuing to encourage and support me on this journey.
Your kindness means so much as I continue to learn and gain new skills!
