In some ways, it feels like just yesterday that I was introduced to the pastry bag!
In other ways, if feels like I've been doing this forever!
Little did I know, two years ago when I started this little dessert hobby of mine...that I'd have 1,686 people following my Facebook page!
Are you kidding me?
I really just didn't see that coming!
Even though it's been two years, I still consider myself an amateur and I'm learning new things everyday!  
But I'd like to say a thank-you to all of you who encourage me, support me, and those who have ordered cookies and cakes from me.
Thank-you from the bottom of my heart for entrusting me with your special occasion desserts!
I'd also like to thank you all for following my blog, Facebook page, Twitter, and Pinterest!
As a little token of my gratitude, I'd like to do a little giveaway.
I'm going to give one reader 2 dozen of my decorated cookies.
Sound good?
