A new year and lots of new beginnings….

Holidays often bring lots of beautiful presents, including pretty rings and other exciting announcements.  There’s no better way to celebrate these new announcements than with cake and sweets!

Don’t just wait for your shower- be sure to celebrate your news with a special engagement cake!

It’s also not too early to start planning Spring showers, or schedule wedding cake tastings for this year’s festivities.  A bite of something sweet is the best way to beat the winter blues…

Falling for Autumnal Sweets

Posted on: October 28th, 2013 by amanda No Comments

Assembling an autumn soiree or planning for your Thanksgiving feasts? Don’t forget about the most important course: dessert, naturally.

We only use the finest, all-natural ingredients, nothing from a can, nothing pre-made.  Our pumpkin is house roasted.  Our apples are peeled by hand.  Our dough is hand rolled using old fashioned wooden rolling pins.  Bringing natural deliciousness back to life, minus all the unnecessary additives so common in today’s food.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cheesecake is one of our most popular seasonal delights.  Fresh roasted pumpkin, cream cheese, fresh local cream, eggs, and spices make this one hard to resist.

Pumpkin Pie made with fresh roasted pumpkin and local cream, baked in our all-butter pie dough is nothing like the mass-produced variety.

Rustic apple cake, a moist brown sugar cake with chunks of fresh chopped local apples.

A few glimpses from a beautiful Bucks County, PA summer wedding at the Pearl S. Buck House.

The couple chose a LOVE cupcake tower for their sweets table, and let me run with the table decorations.

Loved the creative freedom and very grateful for their faith in me!

Earth is awakening from its winter slumber. Make sure you take a moment to celebrate too.  Spring showers, birthdays, weddings, and religious celebrations all need sweet deliciousness.

Sweet Ruminations recently created some sweets for a Spring themed party designed by A Simple Soiree, who was kind enough to share some photos from their adorable event:

Easter Sweets

Posted on: March 24th, 2013 by amanda No Comments

Everyone knows that the Easter Bunny loves carrots. But one year I thoughts about it a bit….carrots are lovely but carrot cake tortes are absolutely delightful! Why wouldn’t the Easter Bunny think so too? So that year I left him a carrot cake….. I awoke that Easter morn to the largest Easter basket I’ve ever seen! The importance of delicious Easter desserts can not be understated.
