An essential send off

Here is a cake I made recently for a retirement party.  The person was a paramedic for Toronto EMS.  Toronto Paramedics are currently fighting for becoming an essential service and I couldn't agree more.  Here is to all of you for all the hard work and amazing job you do.

I went to the Lego Store and found this Lego City set and thought it was perfect for this cake.

The cake was chocolate with vanilla buttercream frosting.

With love, from me to you...

Happy Valentines day everyone!

To celebrate the most romantic day of the year I made some vanilla shortbread hearts and stamped out some sweet messages.  The recipe is the same one I made for my christmas shortbread (posted on this blog) with the addition of vanilla bean paste.
