Kentucky Derby!

When I think of the Kentucky Derby, thoughts of fancy hats and mint julep come to mind!  I created this Kentucky Derby sweetscape for Derby weekend and had tons of fun working with traditional derby colors and making a "Run for the Roses" cake. Congrats to I'll Have Another for the big win, even though I was pulling for the Virginia-bred horse, Bodemeister. 

If you look hard you can see 2 horses in the background of this photo!
How gorgeous is this hat my Mom made?!
Red rosette cake as centerpiece

Mint julep, of course
Mini chocolate silk pies
Chocolate bourbon cake pops!  So good!
