Tractor-Themed Birthday Cake

CAke

While we’re still on the theme of baking cakes… here is another one that we just fell in love with! This picture was sent in by one of our most favorite people who used our Heavenly Toffee Dust on her son’s tractor-themed birthday cake. There is so much creativity going on here, let us break it down for you:

  • Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies Toffee Dust was used as the gravel road
  • Twix bars were used as logs
  • Mini-Marshmallows for rocks/snow
  • Tootsie Rolls for tree stumps
  • The small tractors are great because after the cake is demolished simply rinse off and include as a bonus Birthday gift!

The cake itself was a triple chocolate fudge cake with homemade milk chocolate icing. Yum! We are sure this cake was a big hit with the little guy! Happy Birthday!

Chocolate Mousse Crunch Cake with a Touch of Heaven

Check out this amazing cake a customer shared with us! They found the recipe on Our Best Bites and promised “it’s a keeper!” It’s easy to make and the finished product is AMAZING! I mean look how gorgeous it is! And the best part…. they substituted the Heath Toffee Bar with our Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies Toffee Dust and claimed that made all the difference! We asked if they could bring in a few bites for us to try, but unfortunately there were no leftovers. Oh well, looks like we’ll be baking our own this weekend!

Here are a few pictures they sent in. Enjoy.

Home Remedies for Spring Allergies

Honey

As beautiful as springtime is in Georgia, with its blossoming dogwood trees and sprouting tulips, there is one thing that Georgians don’t look forward to during this time of year: pollen. For the next several weeks this fine powdery substance will be seen blanketing every car, road, and driveway. For me this means a stuffy nose and an almost unlimited amount of tissues will dominate my next few weeks. Luckily, there are a few home remedies I’ve gathered over the years that may help anyone that suffers from this dreaded yellow stuff:

1. Local honey – This sweet treat may help by boosting your immune system. The emphasis here is LOCAL.

2. Neti Pot – Keep your sinuses clear with this useful contraption. Add sea salt for added benefits.

3. Garlic Clove + Yogurt – Some experts claim chewing a clove of garlic in the morning followed by natural yogurt can help. It won’t help with morning breathe, but if it helps with sinuses it’s worth a try.

4. Less wheat and more veggies – This combo can help reduce mucus production and encourage a healthy immune system.

5. Anti-allergy tea – sage, birch leaf, dandellion, black pepper. Drink with honey.

Try these out and tell us what you think. If there are any other tips you have, please do share!
