Petit Gateau

Thanks for coming over today!
This week is all about these cookie cutters,
the latest treasure I found at the

When I'm hunting around at thrift stores, I usually look for
books, things for the home and lonely objects waiting
for a blah to TADA! make-over. Cookie cutters like
these are unexpected and even surprising that
they're in good condition & a complete set at that.

Here's what I'll use my cookie cutters for:
It's easy to use with professional looking results!

If you've never worked with fondant, it looks &
feels like clay. Pull out a piece and roll it out with
this special rolling pin that has rings to control
the fondant's thickness.

Take out the cookie cutters & punch away.
Make sure to keep the excess fondant in a zip-top bag
or air-tight container.

Doesn't it lend a special TADA! touch to a home-baked,
home-decorated cake?

It's a personal cake for a lovely birthday girl named Zoe.


  1. How incredibly sweet. You seem to be a master of everything!

  2. Okay, I don't even cook - but you are making me want to decorate something - anything. I didn't know they had fondant in a bag. How neat!


  3. Thanks Kara! Thanks Ronda! I recently took a cake decorating class and I'm practicing :) I like how there are so many products out there to help home bakers create fantastic cakes. Have a nice day!

  4. I love all the things you have done with these cookie cutters! You certainly see the possibilities in things, and I enjoy seeing what you come up with.

  5. You're so talented. I've never tried using fondant, but I think I'd be pretty good at it...I have practiced using play dough a lot!!!

  6. Hello Lori! Thanks for this sweet note...I'll do my best not to let you down :)

    Hi Marfa! Fondant does remind me of play dough!
    Thanks for saying hello today.

  7. What a cute, cute, cute cake!
