I did these back in April and never had time to write a post. I was asked to come up with a dessert for my school’s annual fundraiser, the theme was “Night in Vegas.” We initially considered doing cookies made to look like poker chips and playing cards along with cake pops, but finally decided on poker chip cookies and cupcakes with a red/white/black color scheme (see pictures at the end taken at the event).
The cupcakes were double chocolate cake filled with salted caramel and iced with a vanilla-bean buttercream swirl with red/white sprinkles. The sugar cookies were iced with fresh lemon royal icing and a fondant circle in the center.
It was a terrific party and a great fundraiser for the school. Many kudos to the committee who worked tirelessly to organize it all…great job, HFS Reverse Raffle team!! I was proud to be a part of it!
