Christmas is just a few days away and everyone is busy shopping for those last-minute gifts for their loved ones. We have sold out of our on-line cookies but they are still available at the Rustic Touch in Rock Island TN. Sipping a cup of your favorite hot tea or coffee with some shortbread cookies or gingerbread, is perfect when you are with your friends and family………
We are starting to bake our Spring Collection of Cookies. We’ve been making our Sugar-Shortbread™ Painted Cookies for more than 24 years! We still mix them in small batches, roll, cut, and decorate by hand. I love these cookies; it’s one of my favorite bakery items to make. The main reason is…they ALWAYS make people smile. And, our company name came from the exclamations people would make when they received their cookies. Called Sugar-Shortbread™ because these cookies have attributes of both those cookies types. They are buttery, not overly sweet, crunch nicely when you bite into them and most importantly, you can’t just eat one! The cookie is made of wheat flour, sugar, butter, eggs, pure vanilla, and salt. The icing is made with egg whites and confectioners sugar.

Reflecting back on our years of making custom wedding cakes, I see a kaleidoscope of smiling faces and beautiful places. I hear snippets of conversation, music, tears of joy, and laughter of wonderful family gatherings. I see gorgeous flowers, delectable foods, ribbons, bows, and lace.
We put our heart and all our energy into providing the best tasting made from scratch cake. With exacting attention to detail we tried to faithfully interpret and present the bride with her dream wedding cake. My biggest thrill was watching a bride see her cake for the first time.. As Spencer pointed out, the cake is the only part of the wedding experience that the bride has not seen. The moment she does is priceless.
Each and every bride was special to us. Their personal stories and their wedding experiences were each unique. We were honored to be part of her special day. We felt it was our responsibility to deliver a top quality product in a professional manner befitting the occasion. Our goal was to exceed expectations and we believe we did everything possible to achieve that goal.
We learned so much from our brides, grooms, and their families. We incorporated suggestions and were continually asking for comment and input as to any aspect of their experience with us so that we could improve. They made us better, and for that, we thank you!
As we move away from making wedding cakes into another sector of our bakery business, our goal is to continue on with quality products, exacting detail, professional service and a passion for delighting our customers.
You will notice that we made some major changes today, and this new text column is one of those changes. Hopefully our new layout is easier to use on your mobile device, while providing you the latest news and updates about our upcoming bakery and boutique activities. We still need to made many other updates and corrections, so please pardon our mess while we fine tune the new layout. As always we welcome your input, so send us an email if you see something that needs correction or changing.
One of the most exciting and challenging cakes we have made was a groom’s cake. The bride wanted to knock it out of the park. She provided photos of his Pro-Ject Debut III turntable, ( yes he is an audiophile) the name of his favorite Jazz artist, his favorite football team, and off to the planning table for us ! Spencer was the point man on the working turntable and embedding an MP3 player with the Miles Davis tunes on it. It was a cheesecake covered in fondant with all the buttons, knobs, and a moveable tonearm playing an edible 33LP. The LP was cast in chocolate and the center label was printed onto edible paper. There was a stack of record albums (all of cake), and the New Orleans Saints football of chocolate cake finished out the groom’s surprise. The table had photos of his family and some memorabilia important to him. As the groom approached his table we heard him say “That’s my turntable! “
It was a good day for all.
In the attached video there is a Bulldogs hand bell sitting in front of the cake and the handle is seen projecting up. Neither the hand bell or the photos are edible but everything else is!
I guess it’s the little flash of sunshine and warmish weather that has me thinking of spring . My favorite aspect of spring is the wildflowers that bloom in our woods here. I love these little sugar blossoms because they remind me of some of the delicate little wildflowers. Several of our brides have selected these to adorn their wedding cakes. They are made from sugar paste and are completely edible.
