It’s Wedding Season!

Wedding season is upon us, which in a baker’s world (or any kind of sweet lover’s world really…) it’s time for some delicious treats!!

I hosted a bride for my first ever “Wedding Tasting” recently and it was a fun experience! She had requested to sample some lemon-flavored treats, so I stepped out of my usual chocolate-vanilla-red velvet comfort zone and made some zesty cakes, cupcakes and cake pops 🙂

Here are some pictures from the tasting!

What’s new with Tasty Treats?

I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus from this site for almost a year (yikes!), but I have been busy on my Facebook page!

…and busy in the kitchen, of course 🙂

Here are some highlights to show what I’ve been up to! 

Halloween cake pops…

Ghosts & Pumpkins

…and Christmas cake pops, too!

Tasty Christmas Treats

I would like to begin with a huge THANK YOU to everyone who placed a Christmas order with Tasty Treats by Jessica. This was a wonderful holiday season! This is the first year I have taken cookie orders and although it was a lot of work, I enjoyed it very much and look forward to doing it again next Christmas 🙂 Not only were there cookie orders, but I also made some really fun Christmas cake pops and hand-dipped pretzels.

Here are some pictures from all of these tasty orders. I hope you all enjoyed them 🙂

These Frosty cake pops were a teacher's gift to her class.

Another Great Holiday Event!

I was a part of another great Holiday Event at My Uncle’s Place on the Service Rd in Hillcrest for Small Business Saturday/Binghamton’s North Pole. This event took place on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and was a great gathering for some local businesses to share their goods – Origami Owl, Thirty-one, Tupperware, Pampered Chef, etc.

I had a table with my Christmas cookies, hand-dipped pretzels, Reindeer Food and Christmas cake pops displayed. I had some door prizes – 2 drawings for a free dozen cookies and one for a free dozen pretzels. I had some happy, happy winners! 🙂

Here are some pictures from that great event!

It was nice to meet all of the other vendors and share my Tasty Treats!

Merry Christmas!! 🙂

Christmas is in the Air!!

I love Christmas! I love the holiday season and everything it entails – cookies (of course!), family, childhood memories and even a snow (especially if it means a snow day!).

I always connect baking with Christmas because that’s a big deal in our family. I loved baking and decorating sugar cookies with my mom and sister !

I was lucky enough to be a part of the Girls’ Night Event at Absolute Hair in Vestal, NY last Friday, November 22nd. I had a table there where I could showcase all of the Tasty Treats I have available for Christmas and also browse a handful of other vendors selling homemade jewelry, woodwork scarves and lotions.

Below are some pictures from this great event!

Here are the cookies I baked that are available for Christmas Cookie Plates!

Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Dream (peanut butter-filled) Choc Chip again, Peanut Butter Blossoms (with Hershey’s Kisses or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups), Rogelach (cinnamon-sugar cookies; some with chocolate chips) and Ricotta Cookies (super moist & flavorful!).

Cookies

Also available are Frosted Sugar Cookies…

Of course there were CAKE POPS!!

These pops are made with Red Velvet or Vanilla cake. Frosty, Rudolph and Christmas Trees are specialties. There are also red and green pops with white non-pareil sprinkles.

Fall Season <3

Well it’s hard to believe, but winter is right around the corner!

Here I am to update you on how the fall season went with Tasty Treats by Jessica. If there’s one word that is good to describe the months of September through November it is this: BUSY! I was lucky enough to begin a partnership with the new art gallery, Uncorked Creations. The owner, Alise Pierson, has opened this wonderful, creative business that anyone who experienced it has loved! How is Tasty Treats involved? Well every first Friday of the month, downtown Binghamton welcomes people to visit the local galleries as part of the First Friday event. Tasty Treats by Jessica is happy to be displaying baked goods at Uncorked Creations during this event!

Here are some Tasty Treats from the October First Friday….
