Ladybug, Ladybug, Fly Away Home

Ladybug Go-To-Meeting.

These yummy sugar cookies are topped with fondant which is applied to the cookie with piping gel, my all-purpose glue.
Beth, the owner of Bella Catering, came over Friday night & we put these cookies together for her sister, Susie's, baby shower. Then we ordered a pizza and drank wine 'cause cookie making is hard work!
Aren't they adorable?

Got Lady Slippers?

We have four followers! Thanks for joining the Sugar Buzz gang! Unlike other web pages where the bakers get to play in the kitchen full-time, baking here at The Sugar Buzz Factory is a part-time endeavor - so we don't have as many posts - but we do try to do it first class when we wander into the kitchen.

Let me introduce us:
The Sugar Buzz Factory is a family project: David takes the pictures, friends stop by and Mumsie (my mother) often pitches in on large orders & I come up with ideas and get covered in flour and icing.

Stay tuned for our next baking adventure which is fondant Lady Bug cookies for a baby shower and imprinted fondant cakes (with my new rolling pins & imprint sheets!) for the neighborhood church bake sale on May 30.

Meanwhile, we head into the garden and woods for Memorial Day Weekend, which is where David found these Pink Lady Slipper Orchids.

Oh yeah, and we're gonna empty and sterilize David's car this weekend. (He says we're gonna have to rake it out before we can clean it. Oh, goodie.)

Cake Wreck Gets Buzzed!


Cake Wreck (When professional cakes go horribly, hilariously wrong) honored our Flower Pot cakes on their Mother's Day 2009 post.

And NO, it wasn't because we screwed up.

Our "Going to Pot" article featured cakes baked in real flower pots topped with fondant and gum paste flowers and they used a picture as something cute to bake on Mother's Day.

Check us all out.

Or get Sugar Buzzed.

Or get Cake Wrecked!

May garden Inspriation

These pictures were taken May 4, 2009. Above is a wild Columbine growing in the shade garden under The Big Maple. Below is a close up of Muscatari that line my stepping stones from the street to the front porch. They're just like baby blueberries on a stick!
