Beach Cookies

I made 2 dozen beach themed cookies over the weekend!  I have beach balls, hibiscus flowers, sharks and some whales!  I really enjoyed making these and had fun trying some new techniques!  I didn't take many photos, but I think a bit of each type of cookies can be seen!

Mustache and Bow Ties

Sister will be having a little boy next month and a friend and I threw her baby shower. We threw "a Little Man" shower complete with mustaches and bow ties, so I added some cookies favors!! Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of them before they were wrapped or displayed, so there are some right after decorating them and up against an orange table cloth (which doesn't help the orange cookies).

Baptism Cookies

Husband and I have officially sold our first home and this was my last cookie order in said house!  It's bittersweet!

We (and my parents) were packing up my house and my entire kitchen was packed in boxes except my mixer and my baking cabinet! Even with all of my organization I needed to run to my neighbor Ashley's house to borrow 2 spoons, measuring cups and measuring spoons!  Well, I tried to be organized!  I stopped packing to decorate a dozen cookies for my friend's little boy's baptism and with everything going on I completely forgot to take a picture of them! She sweetly sent me a picture of one of each cookie! The one with polka dots says "God Bless Brayden."

Peep cookies with buttercream frosting covered in sprinkles! I will definitely use my regular frosting next time! The sprinkles held in too much moisture with buttercream frosting!

Train Cookies

This past week a sweet little boy turned two and had a Thomas the Train themed party. I made these train cookies to go along with it! They were so fun to make and I hope to make some trains again soon! I got so ahead of myself, I completely forgot to take any photos before I packaged them!

Happy 2nd Birthday, Miles!

Thank you, Dana!

I love food that looks like other food, ya know?! Hamburgers made out of of cupcakes, coconut and frosting! mm!!

I made these cookies for the party favors, complete with syrup and butter!!  I am in love with this party theme!

Happy 2nd Birthday, Callum!

Thank you for your business, Amber!

Pirate & Mermaid Party

My twins are turning two and in honor of them we threw a Pirate & Mermaid Themed party to celebrate with close friends and family.  We had 11 children under the age 3 there, so it was of course hectic and loud, but I loved it!  Below is my small dessert bar with cupcakes and cookies! The cookies are treasure maps with the path in the shape of a two and mermaids! The cupcakes are red velvet with a homemade cream cheese frosting..mmm! 

I love love love their candles this year! I have been ordering them from an Etsy shop. She made their candles last year as well and I hope to continue this tradition of having themed candles! I love looking back at them and know I will in the future!

Christmas Cookie Assortment

I am very excited to post my Christmas cookies for this year!  I haven't made my regular Christmas cookies in years. Three to be exact. To say I was ready to make them again is an understatement and boy did I go overboard this year!  I have made and frosted 8 dozen Christmas cookies over the last couple of weeks.  Three dozen are for a customer order and the rest are for cookie gifts as well as cookies to bring to my family Christmas. 

When I have this many cookies to bake it takes some intense planning. I write down how many cookies I need, how many of each design I will have (usually in dozen increments for simplicity), and then I draw what the designs will be and what colors I will use.  This helps me plan and organize and save on frosting! It's amazing how much frosting I saved this year with a little planning!  By the end my hand was hurting so badly that I could barely pipe, haha!

I wanted to try a few different cookies this year and I am so pleased with how most of them turned out!  

Everyone loves the commercial side of Christmas! Christmas trees, snowmen, santa, etc., but this year I wanted to make a few cookies that represent the real meaning of Christmas - Jesus!  I love these nativity scene cookies and am sure I could make them even better next year!

But everyone loves Santa and Rudolph!!

I always make snowmen of some kind, but wanted to do something a little different. I love their hats!

The  tree is one of my favorite parts of decorating for Christmas, so naturally a tree couldn't be left out! I decided to go with a lightly decorated and snowy look this year! 

While I didn't put ornaments on a tree, I couldn't leave them out all together! These are actually some of my favorites!

A few different types of snowflakes. I live in Texas, these are the snowflakes I see!

And lastly, polar bears! I really wanted to get a bit more creative with these, but it just wasn't in me by the end! I was completely finished with all of my other cookies and these were the only ones left, so at midnight Friday night I piped some simple polar bears and that was it!  I think they turned out pretty cute! Maybe next year I will make my coca cola polar bears!

The cookies from the order were all individually heat sealed, packaged and ready to go! I set aside 18 cookies for my family and the rest were handed out to friends and neighbors. I also made some white chocolate drizzled pretzels to go with the cookies and we handed them out Sunday evening!

Dr. Seuss Cookies

These cookies were made for a little boy turning the BIG 2 in December! I made three dozen cookies matching his party theme of Dr. Seuss.  I had so much making these and would love to do them again!

Happy 2nd Birthday Bradley!!

Happy Birthday Cookies

My coworker has a passion for music and I am missing her birthday this year so I wanted to do something fun. She plays the flute, she sings in her church choir, and she does hand bells so I thought I should do something having to do with music. I piped the music staff and thought for sure I wouldn't have room for the entire "Happy Birthday" song, but not only did I have room I had extra room. I will definitely be making something similar to these in the future.  

Happy Birthday Diana!!

Rocket Ship Cookies

I made rocket ship cookies for a space themed baby shower. "We love you to the moon and back," I love that! I had so much fun making these and loved getting a new cookie cutter - any excuse, right?  

Thank you Magan for your business! I enjoyed making these!

Pumpkin Cookies

This year I decided to make some pumpkin cookies that look a bit more realistic. I love the 3D look with the leaves and vines. They turned out exactly how I planned.

Halloween Cats & Spider Webs

Saturday Central Texas SPCA hosts it's annual Barktoberfest this weekend.  This is such a fun day for people to come out with their dogs, dress up in costumes and visit booths for free goodies. The goal is to raise money for the SPCA and to find these dogs their forever homes!  I baked some cookies for the bake sale to help raise money!

(boo on the butter bleed - downfall of making cookies in a humid climate!)

Spiderman, Batman, and Princess Cookies

My cousins are turning the big 5 today and I decided to make them each a cookie to go with the presents my mom is sending them. I emailed their sister to get an inside on their current favorites and of course super heroes were at the top of the list for the boys, Jack and Cooper, and anything princess for Kate.  As per my usual, I sketched out my plans and went to work!
