Beautiful Banana's

     Oh what I would give to eat this.  I love bananas. Unfortunately, in recent years I have become allergic to them.  So, I can create for others and simply watch their joy. 
     Let's make these.  Super easy.  Ready?  Pick up some whip topping, sugar free vanilla pudding, as well as milk to make it, banana's, and graham cracker crumbs.  
     Make pudding following the directions.  In the glass of your choice sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs, then layer in some pudding and banana's.  Keep layering until you have the amount in the glass you would like. Then top with whip topping.  
     It doesn't get any easier than that.  Enjoy!

Pink my Heart

There are many desserts I do a very good job creating. However, these perfect pale pink babies, not my strength. Thanks to the hard working fabulous owners/bakers at Royal Bakery in Salinas, Ca.  I was lucky enough to offer these at a recent party.  They made these exactly how I asked.

My Fancy Cake

     Birthday's are so exciting.  Even more so when your turning 1.  Recently my niece turned one and I had the honor of making this fabulous cake for her.  Inspiration came from photographer, Tim Walker.  My sister, Taylor Sterling, TheGlitterGuide's founder, had a fantastic vision for this lucky little girls first year celebration.  
     So this cake was a delightful butter cake layered with non dairy whip topping and filled with fresh strawberries.  I decorated the top with pale pink meringue cookies.  
     The clever face on top of the cake I made.  I created it from a photo shoot Tim Walker did with ballerina's. The cake was placed on a turning cake stand, so all could see the front and back of the topper.  
Super fun!

A Sweet Party!

     This December my niece turned 1.  Super exciting for her parents and our family.  Planning for her party was both creative and fun.  My sister, Taylor Sterling, Founder and Creative Director of, had her work cut out for this celebration. Taylor's inspiration came from Tim Walker.  She loved his use of swans and pastel colors, for imaginative fun.  All that attended had a blast and were pleasantly surprised at what was put together in a not so big home.  
     I was in charge of desserts.  So off I went to come up with a variety of sweets for all to enjoy.  My creations included vanilla mousse topped with a fresh strawberries, individual banana cream pie's, strawberry ice cream topped with a confetti covered donut hole's, mini pale pink heart cookies made by a local to me bakery, pale pink meringue cookies, Andes mint chip meringue cookies, white chocolate marshmallow popcorn balls, a touch of pink coloring added to the chocolate made them even more fun, mini cupcakes frosted with different shades of pastel, a white layer cake with fresh strawberries and topped with meringue cookies, as well as a yummy raspberry sherbet punch.  
     The party was a huge hit.  Everyone had a great time.  My sister and her husband enjoyed sharing this celebration with friends and family.  As well as on Pottery Barn Kids, Going Lovely, and Glitter Guide's Instagram pages.  
Stay tuned!  There is always a little something sweet from my life to be shared...
