Easter Cookies

Adopt a Peep 'cause they're invading Blair County. See posting below to benefit the Central PA Humane Society.
This old fashioned Eastertide postcard on a sugar cookie is printed with edible ink onto (edible) wafter paper which is similiar to rice paper, but made with potato starch. There are 14 different designs available and they are all on large, postcard-sized cookies that measure about 3 1/2" by 5" and are 3/8" thick.

Check out the Sweet Little Bunny cookies. These bunnies are also printed on wafer paper and attached to a sugar cookie. Which one is Peter Rabbit? These cookies are over 2" in diameter.

The night before Easter, be sure to leave one of these huge (almost 2" by 5 1/2") sugar cookie carrots out for the Easter Bunny along with a frosty glass of milk.

Toilet Cake

Sometimes I wonder about my friend's sensibilities.

This cake recently came about because my friend, Bob, was looking for a humorous birthday cake for his two friends who were turning 60. And he got it.

The bowl was three layers of vanilla cake with raspberry filling and the tank and toilet paper roll were Devil’s Food layered with vanilla butter cream. Everything was covered with fondant.

The poop was chocolate butter cream, the water in the bowl was tinted piping gel, the handle on the tank fondant, the toilet paper was preforated fondant and the lid was custom made out of wood. There was a detachable card on the inside of the lid that everyone signed for the birthday couple.

Because we had never done this before, it was an engineering challenge. A sturdy platform (cake’s heavy!) had to be built for the tank that included a back so the cake tank wouldn’t lean halfway through the party and we had to find small hinges for the lid, which also needed a place to be attached so it could be opened and closed.

All of the wood was painted white to seal it and to make it washable. The platform was covered with blue and white checked washable vinyl wallpaper to imitate a typical bathroom floor.

Now that we’ve made this cake for Bob, we can make one for you. Contact us with your event: be it an anniversary, birthday, an open house, renovation celebration or any party for a plumber.
