Moving to The Daily Soiree!

While Kate’s Cakes & Catering, was a great way get started blogging, with my interests expanding its no longer the best place for me to update. That being said, I’d love for you all to check out my new blog The Daily Soiree that my sister & I launched earlier this week. In addition to great baking posts, The Daily Soiree will also have posts about travel, fashion, as well as bar & restaurant reviews. This week’s posts are all about St. Patrick’s Day so be sure to check them out! Thanks again to all of you who have followed me over the past few years! Hope you all enjoy The Daily Soiree!!


Valentine’s Day Cookies Part 1

They are just as delicious as the originals, but must more festive looking! I hope my friends & family enjoy them in a few days!
