Marie Antoinette Birthday Soiree

I am so excited to be part of this Marie Antoinette Birthday Soiree, hosted by Joy at Cupid's Charm! Ever since I heard about it I started thinking up something yummy and creative to make. See, since Marie's birthday is on November 2, a bunch of us bloggers are going to post photos and descriptions of our Marie Antoinette-themed confections.

On that day (this coming Sunday!), visit Joy's blog to see who has posted their creations to their blogs. While I'm not a big fan of Marie Antoinette herself, I just love her unique style and fashion that she brought to France when she was married to the King. That fashion has been so inspirational the past few weeks on many of my creations and I am so excited to share my newest Jenni B Original with you!

I look forward to seeing what all of my friends have created as well!

New Items Added to My Shop!

I've been so busy working away in my little studio and am so excited to present to you my latest creations! It's no secret that cupcakes are at the top of my list when it comes to likes. So it should be no surprise that my new Holiday line had to include them. And here they are.Topped with lots and lots of glass glitter, these sisters sure do shimmer!

And not only have cupcakes been a-baking, but new glittery garlands have been in the making! A few posts ago I showed pictures of my new power tools and now you finally get to see what I was using them to create. Each of these vintage postcard images was mounted to a thin piece of wood with vintage book pages on the back.

These garlands and cards are so much fun to make and have been giving me a little break (which was much needed) from faux desserts. I'm thinking it might be extra, extra fun to give one as a GIVEAWAY in an upcoming post, so stay tuned!

Since I have been using so much of that wonderful seam binding and have really fallen in love wiht it, I've decided to offer it in my shop for sale so all of you can get in on this great ribbon if you don't own some of it yourself already. Guaranteed you'll flip when you start working with it. This week I have some baby gifts to give away and I can't wait to use it in my wrapping! Visit my store for a selection (let me know if you'd like a color not listed). It's a great purchase at $2.00 for 5 yards and a crown tag is included with each length.

Jenni B's Faux Tartlet Classes

I finally have something really good to blog about! This past week marks the finish of my very first actual teaching course of Jenni B Originals Faux Desserts. The course was a community education class here in Charlottesville and these ladies and I had SO much fun together! The class was two weeks and take a look at the projects they took home!

This was a cute mother and daughter. That little one was so creative!

I had a great time teaching this class but I think it was because my students were gems. They were all so excited and eager to learn and had creative minds. I can't wait to do it all again!

{ New & Improved } Blog Makeover

It was high time that I got a makeover for my blog. I was so tired of the same boring old brownie. It's only been up for a year. Now it's time for cupcakes!

So I have a question for all of you readers out there: how often do you get a blog makeover? And do you change your logo for your business? Do tell!

Also, I have some more photos of the Every Holiday Cake that I've been so excited about. This is the base of the cake topper.

And here is the added "icing" to one of the picks for the top of the cake.

These are a few of the cake images for the Fourth of July. Remember, these cakes come with ten images of each of the following holidays: Christmas, Valentine's, Easter, Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving & Easter.
