10 minute craft dash #24 - part 2

This is my second and final submission to this week's 10 Minute Dash Challenge hosted by Pretty Pink Posh.  I used the rose, light orange, and cornflower blue color palette to create this card, which was completed in 9 minutes and 38 seconds.

I actually do think that french macarons are too sweet, and I think the sentiment works well with the little sugary cookies.

This card is dedicated to my best friend, Hervay, who has helped me so much with my baking gigs.  I am pretty confident with making simple cupcakes and cookies, but very often I get requests for items that require a lot of patience to make/bake...which I don't have.

Hervay helped me to make 300 cakepops for a wedding, a beautifully frosted three-layer cake (I can never get the layers even!), and most recently a bunch of doggies with mustaches and tiaras, made out of fondant.  Neither of us knew how to make or work with fondant, so we learned together.  And, thank goodness Hervay was around to help.  I know I couldn't have pulled this off without him.

Here they are!!!

Not bad for our first try.

All packed up and ready for the party...

Thank you, Hervay, for being a rockstar.  We make a great pair.  And, if the card isn't enough of a hint, it's time that we learn how to make macarons...

Thank you to Pretty Pink Posh for another fun challenge!

  2. Cute card and awesome masking, Lorraine. Funny how the male dogs look sad and the female dogs are happy. You know, Kainoa and I just signed up for a macaroon class downtown. It's November 5th, come home and join us.

    1. I think it's the mustaches that make the male dogs look sad. You can see their mouths; the mustache covers the smile:(
