I will tell you all about the bakery where I have been spending most of my time...

Here it is...
The Pastry Garden!

While we are out here lets take a look at all the sugar cookies that the decorating of has completely taken over our lives...

I have seen small children lick this window... Yes, they look that good!

Here is the view from the door...

And here is Carol, my cousin and classically trained pastry chef extraordinaire...
She also does competitive ballroom dance... and has since before it was cool.
Just a little factoid about this amazing person who makes me laugh daily, loves my girlies, puts up with my sometimes surly husband and does all of this with the handicap of being directly related to me...

Let's look at what she has baked up today...
Yes... other then the sugar cookies which keep several days everything else is baked fresh daily!

Let's see we have...

(three kinds... plus baguettes)



Cappuccino Brownies
(These will change your life!)

More sugar cookies

Raspberry & Lemon Scones
(and yes, more sugar cookies!)

And finally for today we have...
Apple Strudel
Pecan Tarts
Russian Tea Cakes
& Chocolate Chip Cookies

Well, there you have it...
Tomorrow I will start filling you in on it's colorful cast of characters!
