Wow!!! It Has Been Way to Long...

Well hello everyone!!
It has been quite sometime since I have blogged or posted any of my creations (I apologize). The last time I posted was in January, and a lot has happened since then. Most importantly, I graduated from WVU with my Masters in Elementary Education. I also started subbing at the end of Febuary, and finish subbing for this year on Wednesday. I will have two days off and will start my summer teaching job on Monday!!! I currently do not have a full-time teaching postition for the fall, but I check the job postings every week and am applying for everything I am qualified for!!

Now onto the fun stuff!!! I have not been to busy making cakes, but I have made a few over the past couple of months.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

It has been awhile since I have posted and I have been very busy!!!
I did a lot of baking for some teachers at my school and for my family
over the holidays. I do not even want to think about all the cookies and carmels
I have made over the past two weeks.


Over the Holidays I made well over 700 cookies!!!
Which included chocolate chip, snickerdoodles, peanut butter, sugar
and short bread cookies. 

A cookie tray I made

One of my favorite things that I have made for Christmas was these
pretzel carmels candies I found a recipe for. They were extremly easy
and they TASTED so good!!!

Mini pretzels
Milky Way
Put them in the oven, let them melt together!!!
Soo Good!!   So Easy!!

For Christmas I got a lot of cool items for my kitchen. I got a new cake
stand (Thanks Glenda). I love it, plus it can be used in so many ways.
Anyways, I had to make a cake to put on it!!!

Cookies N Cream Cake
with Homemade Cream Cheese Icing

This cake was SOOOO goood!!!

I also got a cow cookie jar, and a cow plate (Thanks Caron)!!!
There are already cookies in my cookie jar!!!

My last baking adventure for the Holiday was a little more fun for me. I got to make a Super Man Logo cake!!!!!

It was fun to do a cake like this, I haven't done one in a while.


Final Product

The cake was a Grooms Cake for a rehersal dinner.
It is red velvet cake, with cream cheese icing!!!

I had a GREAT Christmas, I was a little tired of baking, but I
 really did enjoy it.  I now have a little over a week left til I start my last semester of college ever!!!
Hopefully I will be able to get a little more baking in before I have to go back to school!!!
I will post pictures !!!  

I also just wanted to thank my family for a wonderful Christmas!!!

Thanks Guys
Love you all!!!
