In the kitchen lately, I’ve been working on cakes and sugar cookies decorated with royal icing.
We celebrated my hubby’s birthday this past week and for the occasion, I made him his favorite cake because in the Effortless household, cake is a MUST on your birthday.
This was a two-layer German Chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream frosting spread between the layers and piped as a border around the coconut pecan topping. It was sooooo good, ya’ll.
I’ve also been working on sugar cookies. Lots and lots of sugar cookies. I’ve mostly been doing various heart-shaped designs, trying to get ready for Valentine’s Day.
When my schedule permits, I like to bring in desserts to share at the office, so this year, I’ve decided to bring in a “Nacho” Average Valentine Cookie platter featuring these nacho cookies I’ve been working on:
Aren’t they cute?!!
And they were so easy to decorate. My plan is to place these nachos on a white platter and sprinkle a few red hearts among them to complete the theme. It’s going to look maaaaaarvelous!
