Sweets & Treats

For as long as I can remember, I've been a sucker for pretty food. My first job, in high school, was at Dunkin' Donuts. I didn't care that much for waitressing; what I really loved was "finishing", which meant frosting, powdering and filling the donuts. I took great pride in making the donuts look as appealing as possible; I even made bets with myself that I could control which variety sold out first.
That was kind of a long detour to say, Look what I made! I'm not much for holidays at all, and even less for all the Christmas hullabaloo, but I do like to have an excuse to make beautiful sweets.
Here are some other things that were (and are, through Sunday!) on offer at Portland Pottery:

The sweets and treats look wonderful, are those your fountains? My first job was at KFC, then I waitressed college I like waitressing better than KFC but I did like baking at home. Ha.

No, Linda; I didn't think to notice who the artist was. Karen Dyer made the pots above the fountains, and Elizabeth Louden made the mug about those.
