Cupcakes from the Heart

I’ve been a fan of gourmet cupcakes since they first hit the scene a few years ago. They’re a great crowd pleaser and such a fun alternative to standard cake. No one puts more heart and soul into baking cupcakes than Barb and Rick Nischalke of Cookies, Cupcakes & More. Specializing in weddings and events in the PDX metro area, the couple offers cupcakes and cookies in a wide variety of flavors and frostings to enhance any occasion. Unlike most other commercial bakers, Barb and Rick provide lots of creative flexibility and welcome custom orders. You can even request a private tasting session while you discuss design ideas. I’m a fan of their Chocolate Peanut Butter with the runner up being their After Dinner Mint with Andes mint pieces in the cake. Yum! Whether you are planning a wedding for 100, an office party for 50, or a baby shower for 25 – give them a call. They love what they do and it shows. You couldn’t be in nicer hands.  Visit the website now .

Baking Up A Bridal Shower

What could be sweeter than a cookie baking bridal shower? I was lucky enough to help plan one for last Saturday.  After favorite recipes were chosen from cookbooks and guest contributions, the hostess created colorful recipe sheets for each guest as a souvenir of the fun afternoon. Plates, tissue and cell wrap were provided so each chef could create their own fresh-baked cookie package to take home. To keep things organized and flowing smoothly, directions were posted Continue reading “Baking Up A Bridal Shower”
