First of all, who doesn't like to bake? I love to bake but I have NEVER tried what I am about to show you! OOOOHHHH....I got this brilliant idea from Colleen (take a sweet bow) and her little sweet daughter! Here is where they make the most amazing FAKE cinna mini's! http://andbabymakesfive-colleen.blogspot.com/2008/10/making-mini-cinnis-with-michaela.html How neat, I have always wanted to try this!
And the great recipe for this is here!http://fortheloveofprims.blogspot.com/2008/08/mini-cinni-buns-recipe-smile-award.html Ok mine looked a little rough so I had to make alot of fake icing to cover up the wobbly looking creations!
Then I thought
what if I used this dough to make some 'faux tarts'! I sprayed the little tart pans, rolled the dough and then sort of pressed it into the tart pan with my thumb...

How about little cupcakes? I was on a roll!
They baked up perfectly, hard as a ROCK! I warned hubby he might break a tooth if he took a bite out of these puppies!

Next, the icing, I mixed glue with white paint for vanilla glaze, and brown paint with glue for chocolate icing...



At this point my husband rolled his eyes at me....Mr. Gourmet cook couldn't comprehend my bliss....

The funny thing is I don't even bake this good when it comes to real food. Big chuckle, ok and a little snorting!





Are these adorable? Thank you so much Colleen and Sandy! The inspiration behind my day filled with 'BLISS'.
BLESSINGS,
DEBBIE

Good morning, Debbie! Those look so good, really good enough to eat. If I had time I would attempt these, maybe after my open house. Char has some awesome ideas & I have tried several of her tutorials and freebies. Enjoy your day, my friend.

How cool is that?!!! I love them :)

You know, I need something new to put in my pan on my doughboard. I have cinnamon bun candles but they've seen better days. Your pieces turned out quite a nice share of dark brown....I was thinking maybe brownies? LOL My poor family will think I lost it!

Have a great day!

At first I couldn't figure out WHY you would want to do this until I saw the end result sitting so pretty in the glass plate. What a clever idea! I love the look of goodies under a glass dome but hate the mess it becomes once my kids start in on it! I might just try this to make the place look festive but...make sure the kids and hubby know first!! Love your blog!

Wonderful job Debbie. You sure made these treats look extra good by the way you displayed them.
Thanks for sharing.

OOOOO! How pretty. If I finish all of my "real" baking for Christmas, I'm going to try some of these (this chocolate is a lot less fattening than what I usually make). laurie

Have a great weekend.
