Sweet & Fabulous Contributors

I would like to welcome two Sweet & Fabulous contributors! I strive to keep my blog fresh with new ideas for my readers on a daily basis. In order to do that I felt it was imperative to add a little variety~ hence Loren's photo from above that was chosen to be on the Martha Stewart site! I'm so excited to add more baking tips & tricks to my blog! You can see Loren's sweet Valentine Cookie tutorial HERE.

My name is Loren and I'm a wife, a mom and a self-taught cookie & cake decorating fanatic! What started as a hobby has now become an obsession. I’m an avid collector of dessert cookbooks, cake pans and cookie cutters. I keep a blog called “ The Baking Sheet” as a way to document my progress as an amateur baker. I feature cake & cookie decorating tips, recipes and lots of pictures of my cakes, cookies and cupcakes. In 2010, three of my creations were selected to be published in a fabulous new book titled “1000 Ideas for Decorating Cupcakes, Cookies & Cakes”. By no means am I an expert and look forward to many years of learning and exploring my craft!

My next fabulous contributor, Helen will be sharing sweet paper love with all of you! I'm so excited to add more paper elements to my blog! Add a little Latin spice to your cards~ Bonito Designs

I’m a New York City local who loves making the world prettier. The person who I am—from my culture to my style—is reflected in my work. My creations are whimsical and clean, with a touch of femininity and a dash of modern style.
Bonito Design was established to realize my true passion, which was to create cards with a Latin Spice. On taking this path I had no idea I was going to evolve creatively into customizing invitations or even styling parties. I LOVE being creative or just giving things a special touch. It really makes me HAPPY to create pieces that are fun, simple, and just plain pretty, I affect others in the most positive way I know how, through my art.

♥A sweet welcome~ Loren & Helen to STDFC♥
