Back to School Sweets

Daddy and Tage this summer in Oma's pool's that time of year again.

Summer ends and school starts.

I have really enjoyed having my boys home all summer this year. They are 6 and 9- and we have had a great few months! But reality of school starting is we have meet the teacher this Friday! Yay! 1st and 4th grade begins a new adventure for us all :)

So with the start of school fast approaching- and me being a cheerful Mommy, always wanting the first of school to be exciting for my boys: I wanted share a post about a very talented friend who has found a great use of her already super artistic abilities. She is Erin Watson, of Erinlo Sew and So.

She and I met back in college and have remained in touch all these years.  Recently she started her own cake business. She also does murals, hooded towels and other items. She loves working with people to design one of a kind, creative products! But for now- let's focus on the cakes!

She makes fabulously decorated cakes ...lots of which I am about to show you.

It's bitter sweet starting school this year for me....but these cookies will certainly make it a little sweeter!
