Here in California, spring seems to be well on it’s way! This weekend I was oh so tempted to turn on the air conditioner in the house… somehow 75 degrees feels super hot when it’s been cool for a while! All around town, trees are blooming like crazy and they’re so beautiful!
I love spring baking! Spring is the perfect time to celebrate fresh flavors like lemon and strawberry, to decorate cookies in pretty pastel colors, and garnish desserts with fresh fruit!
Here are a few of my favorite spring sweets…

I have been quite busy recently with promotion for my new cookbook, Glorious Layered Desserts! If you’ve yet to purchase a copy you can find all the details about the book, order a signed copy, and more HERE.
This past weekend I had a local book launch party and it was a LOT of work, but also a ton of fun! I think it came together really beautifully and I’ll look forward to sharing more details (and photos!) soon!
Next weekend I’ll be heading to Cookie Con, cookie decorating conference and show! For the last conference I was a speaker, but this year I’ll be selling books and enjoying the conference as an attendee. I’m looking forward to seeing many of my cookie friends, and I’ll be sure to share lots of photos (and a fun giveaway!) when I return!
Have a wonderful week!
Love how fun this cake was to do with my kids. They each had a section to color up as they wanted, was so much fun! Thank-you for the great post.

What beautiful and cheery colors. I agree: I just love Spring too! The cake is just adorable and those gingham cookies are perfect. I’ve been wanting to try them and now maybe I will. I’m patiently waiting to get to CookieCon so I can buy the book and to meet you! 🙂

Glory, your party was a huge success!! The treats were incredible (I still have layers on my mind… you’re going to be the inspiration for a new blog post coming within the next 2 weeks!) and I’ve been dreaming every night of your Caramel Brownie Trifle. As a chocoholic, that was pure heaven in a cup! And all of these gorgeous treats make me crave spring even more. Bring on the warmer weather — I want to permanently pull out my flip flops! 🙂

That cake is so gorgeous!!
Ha! We’re in Roseville, and I was tempted to turn on the air conditioner this weekend. It got up to a whopping 78 degrees in our house. I realized that I was being ridiculous, so I didn’t. :o) I need to go check out your blog to see if you’re having any other local events…I wanted to go Friday night, but last week nearly killed me and I wasn’t able to drag myself out the door. ;oP
