It was a Sweet Christmas!


Just a few of the Christmas cookies that were made this season! Oatmeal lace cookies pictured above and my classic gingerbread decorated cookies to the right. Also made Mexican tea balls (hazelnut shortbread cookies shaped into balls and rolled in icing sugar) which I have to quadruple the recipe because Jeff eats them all before I get a chance to package them!!! And almond brittle drizzled with dark chocolate! It was a sweet Christmas! ;)

Luca's Baptism Cake

SweetLee Made for Luca's baptism! Bottom tier is chocolate cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream, and top tier was lemon cake with lemon & lime curd swiss meringue buttercream … curd was so good, I licked the bowl clean! ;-) I still have leftover curd and if it weren't so darn hot out, I'd make french macarons!

Cutest "little" boy ever!!! He has been affectionately nicknamed Dough Boy by his own Gong Gong! ;) Almost traded him for a Pandora bracelet! ;p

Sushi anyone?

Preston's 9th BDay cake request was sushi - california rolls … This one made me nervous, how was I gonna make it?! After much googling, I opted to make the california rolls out of candy. Thank goodness for Bulk Barn! I found candy that resembled all the ingredients for the roll: crab meat, avocado, cucumber, rice, and fish eggs! I was so thrilled!!!

Joey had a friend sleepover and she was eager to help out, so I had the girls make the rolls. I made rice krispy treats to fill up half of the roll and then had the girls cut up the candy to fit the other half of the roll. Used icing to fill up the empty spaces and topped with white sprinkles (rice) and red sugar (fish eggs). The girls did a beautiful job!

Cake itself was one layer of vanilla and one layer of chocolate, glued together with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream. So glad it turned out!

Thanks KKSA!


Thanks to KKSA for a great year!

Have a great summer and see ya in September!

One Month Celebration Cake


SweetLee Made for my cousin's daughter's first son, Liam Alexander, for his one month celebration. Apparently, I'm officially a Goo Pau … when he's old enough, he can just call me Audrey. ;-)

One tier was lemon meringue and the other was chocolate mocha.
Chinese last name on top of the cake and of course he was born in the Year of Horse …

Earth Day

SweetLee Made for KKSA Earth Day Celebration! Chocolate cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream. Was going to be ambitious and make a "core" out of red coloured rice treats but ran out of steam after a busy Easter weekend! Maybe next year! But I did make royal iced flower cookies too which I totally forgot to take pictures of …

KKSA had an amazing day of yoga, gardening, knit bombing, sound poems and media. Even found a family of bunnies burrowed in one of the outdoor planters!

Make everyday Earth Day!

Tiffany's Baby Shower


SweetLee Made for Tiffany's baby shower, her first one! Baby shower was "Tiffany"- themed and it's gonna be a boy!


Luca's One Month Celebration

SweetLee Made for Luca's One Month Celebration. Elizabeth tried so hard to hold off until Year of the Horse but Luca didn't want to wait a minute longer! He's soooo cute, that he makes me want to have another one, but not that cute! … ;-)

BTW, Elizabeth is an event planner. Cake matched the invitations … baptism to come ...

Valentine's Day Sweets



Another Valentine's Day …

SweetLee Made for Joey's new friends and teachers at KKSA!

Wonderheart Kennedy


Happy 3rd BDay Kennedy!

She was Wonderheart the Care Bear for Halloween so it's no wonder that she wanted a Wonderheart Care Bear cake!

She loves her chocolate, so chocolate it was with cream cheese and chocolate buttercream icing.

As you can see, she couldn't wait for her mom to bring the plates and forks!
