Elyssa's 8th Grade Graduation


So, my baby has moved on to High School! Can you belive it?!?

I won't get into the big controversy about whether or not 8th Grade Graduation Ceremonys are overrated or not, but yes....can I just say that a two hour long ceremony and 15 minute speeches from the Valedictorian's regarding their "entire lives of memories" was interesting nonetheless.

Weekend Wrap Up

Although it's already Tuesday, I'm doing my Weekend Wrap Up post a day late!

This past weekend was totally jam packed with fun stuff. We had a surprise 70th Birthday Party for a very good friend of ours!

I was honored to do his cake ~ and here it is:

I also made some "Better than Sex" Cupcakes. Now, normally, this would be a cake. Knowing how much the birthday boy LOVES this cake whenever I make it, I decided I'd experiment and make 'em into cupcakes! And let me tell you, it was a complete hit!!



Brian and I had a wonderful time getting to spend time with some of our friends ~ old and new! It's times like these where you just sit around, relax, and enjoy life that makes me so happy!!

I also made a few other snacks / treats.... here's one of them:


Chocolate dipped Pretzel Rods with Rainbow Non-Pareils. Totally Yumny!!!!

So, as you all can see, I've been experimenting and adding Sweet Treats to my Etsy Store as I 'perfect' them.

Stay tuned for more pictures!!!!!

Clever Confections Blog

So, I started a Blog for my Clever Confections 'business'.


It's still "under construction" but I'll link it here:



I will be blogging about my everyday trials and tribulations with cakes, wedding cakes,cupcakes, candies, sweet treats and anything baking related!



The blog will serve as both a 'website' as such which contains information as to what we have to offer, delivery / shipping options and prices, as well as someplace where I can share with everyone what is up and coming in my Etsy Shop.

As I mentioned above, it's still under construction, so if you have any suggestions or criticisms, please feel free to let me know!
Thanks everyone!!!!
