Lemon Blueberry Cake Truffles

Random Thoughts I Had Today:

I could put my entire face in that bowl of yummy-awsomeness! 
Speaking of popcorn, where on earth did Mason put his lunchbox ... full of underwear?!
Oh, I should to hop on VS.com and order that new perfume I tried at the mall.



  Look at THAT! I could totally recreate it ... like tomorrow!

Where's my to-do list?
Does the hubby have pants clean for work tomorrow?
I think this blog needs a new header.



Gah, Candice {from Phineas and Ferb} is particularly annoying today!
 Hahahahahahahahaha! I'm sure I'll see that as a bumper sticker soon.
hmm...have I paid my car taxes for this year yet?
Did I pay last year's ... !?!


Ugh, I'm having a fat day! 
Oooo, I want something sweet ... something lemony! 



Ingredients
adapted from Bakerella
9x13 Lemon Cake, cooled
2 cups Lemon Buttercream
Blueberry Preserves
1 Package of White Chocolate Bark

Method
In a large bowl or food processor, mix cake and frosting together until completely combined.


Roll quarter size balls in hands and press an indention into the center with a finger. Place a little of the blueberry preserves in the center and cover completely with cake mixture. Roll in hands until smooth. Place truffles in the refrigerator for at least an hour to set.
Place bark in a microwave safe bowl and melt according the package directions. Dip each truffle in the white chocolate, making sure to cover completely, and sit in a mini cupcake liner. Decorate with sprinkles {or whatever you would like to use} and let set up.


PAR-TAY Time!

Sugar and Spice ...

... that's what
little girls
are made of!

Today was a very special day
for a dear friend and
her little bundle of joy!

Anne Marie is due in late September
and to get ready for her arrival,
a beautiful baby shower took place Saturday afternoon!

I provided the sweet treats
including a 2 tier Cake,
Cake Truffles and French Macaron favors.

The center was made of tissue paper flowers glued to a Styrofoam round.


Hot pink tulle was wrapped around the cake board and added to the girly, whimsical theme.

This is my Charleston Style Pound Cake
with Vanilla Buttercream.
Marshmallow Fondant decorations adorned the outside.



The favors included 3 petite
French Macarons.
A Strawberry, Key Lime and Vanilla Bean.

Here is a shot of my inspiration
behind the color scheme
and cake decorations.

I pulled elements from the rocker's fabric, which also plays a major roll in the nursery.


It was a perfect shower
for a wonderful friend
and exceptional mother!

Busy Weekend Past, II

I think this past week/weekend was the second busiest I've been since April! I am so thankful to have the greatest clients and enjoyed every second of each of these sweets...

First, I made cupcakes for a Halloween themed BUNCO meeting. I just joined this group and had an absolute blast playing with and getting to know all the ladies!! Four flavors and different decoration made the dessert not only tasty, but super cute as well! All of the decor was edible.


Second was my husband's birthday and although I usually make him a chocolate peanut butter cake, I decided this year to do something a little different. As you all know I recently added Cake Truffles to my menu of yummy treats...so, I wanted to practice with them a little more. I made chocolate cake balls filled with peanut butter frosting and covered them in milk chocolate and Reese's Pieces (my hubby's favorite). He thought they were the best things I've ever made him...so he didn't miss that cake at all! :)


Third, I had a 20th birthday cake and cupcakes due. The client decided on a chocolate cake with caramel and toasted pecan filling for the cake and a dozen of my Black & White cupcakes. I used my homemade Marshmallow fondant to cover the cake and ran with a zebra print theme. I am in love with bows, especially for a birthday, so I finished the cake and cupcakes in handmade blue fondant bows. The client, as well as the birthday girl loved it all!


Next was a girl cow cake. This was for a 3rd birthday party at Chic-Fil-A! The birthday girl wanted confetti cake filled with pink buttercream and a hair bow to match her's. I also added edible pearls and earrings to accent the "girlie" theme. I found out later that the birthday girl ended up becoming ill and they had to cancel the party at the last minute...but she still got a piece of birthday cake! Hopefully, that made her feel a little better!


And lastly, I had an order for cake truffles. My client wanted a array of flavors for thier dinner party, but did not care which. So, I made White Vanilla Bean, Marble, Chocolate Covered Strawberry and Raspberry.


After all of that, I needed a vacation!! :) So, my family went on a camping trip...

I enjoyed my busy week...almost as much as I enjoyed relaxing in the mountains with the in-laws! Thanks again to all of my clients. Without you I wouldn't be able to do what I love!
