You Know You're Famous When.... Your Face is on a Cookie!

This past weekend, Goodies 2 Choose was asked to make cookies for an exclusive Elle Canada magazine party! These were my classic sugar cookies, topped with custom edible wafer paper! Cool eh!? On the cover of the December 2010 issue, is model Laura Rowley. Word is that the cookies were absolutely delicious! Here is a look from the exclusive party hosted by super agent Chantale Nadeau!

These ginger molasses cookies will brighten any day! Soft and chewy the icing isn't the only thing that melts in your mouth.

Here is a delicious, non-traditional trifle made of out sweet potatoes, yes sweet potatoes! They are a great alternative to pumpkin. This trifle is layered with fresh whipped cream and a savory spice cake. A perfect dessert to any Thanksgiving table!

An Awesome, Upcoming Local Event!

The first annual, "Masquerade Gala”

Date: Friday October 22, 2010

Where: The St Clair Centre for the Performing Arts

Time: 6:30 pm Cocktail Hour;7:30 Fabulous Dinner; Cash Bar; Amazing silent auction items; with stellar music

Cost $100.00 per person: (you will receive a portion of your ticket as a charitable receipt); $1,000.00 for tables of 10

This is a fundraiser for a new, local twenty-bed women’s treatment home. It is a non-denominational ministry that partners with churches who share our passion to help women in need. The centre will provide Christian based treatment for up to a year, by providing counseling, career training and tracking, life skills and an opportunity for lasting change. The Rosati Group has been retained as the Construction Manager and blueprints for the centre are completed; the building is not up yet. We are half way there but need your support to complete this project. The Windsor Life Centre will not operate with government funding - it will be totally sponsored by the generous support of those of us who care about the ones who have been tossed aside, abused or forgotten.

This centre is desperately needed in our community as there is nothing like this available now. It is a centre to help women sustain a major transformation so that they can break the destructive bonds, return to their families, partners and start a new positive productive lifestyle. Please take a moment to consider the importance of this project. There are many ways you can get involved. Whether you purchase one ticket, a table, or donate directly to the Windsor Life Centre your thoughtfulness, consideration and generosity would be greatly appreciated. We are also collecting silent auction items or donated items for the Gala. Please feel free to contact us for more information. The Gala could even be a "girls night out" or celebration for couples or a business recognition event.

For Gala tickets: contact the Gala event coordinators:

Jennifer Suzor at (519) 566.8861 or Sharon Reeve

Some Food for Thought...

We at Goodies 2 Choose were picking at each other's brains to come up with an awesome Zombie themed birthday cake for Jacob. And what better idea came to us than to eat what a zombie eats... BRAINS! We added the realistic effect with our own concoction of fake blood. This is a full slab chocolate slab cake with coloured buttercream icing. The cool brain is made out of white chocolate!
