Beach Ball Cookies

My little one had a beach ball themed pool party for his 1st birthday. (This was back in July so don’t think I’m a crazy lady having a pool party in November.)

We rented out the small local pool and had a blast. I made cupcakes with bright pool blue frosting, sprinkles, and a beach ball cake topper…


…and beach ball cookies in rainbow colors.


These were so fun and easy and tied all of the decorations and theme together perfectly.

And because my little dude is just so darn cute, here are a couple pictures from the party!

Bridal Shower Lingerie Cookies

I made these for my cousin’s fiance’s bridal shower over the summer. I love how the gold looked with the hot pink!

I know I’ve said this before, but I LOVE making lingerie cookies. I love to make each one unique and I love to watch people pick out their favorites.

My Little Pony Cookies

I still make things. Not as often, but I do. They just never seem to make it onto here.

I while back I made these My Little Pony Cookies. I was’t going to share them, but it’s been awhile now and I’m not feeling so self conscious about them anymore so I decided why not post them.

I don’t usually do characters (because they’re very hard) but I bought special cutter that indented a lot of the detail lines so I felt more comfortable taking on the challenge.

I like to outline in a dark color like this to create that “coloring book” feel. It also makes the images pop really well.

The hard part about filling in all of these little sections is they tend to crater. You can see this better in the next picture.

This is the finished product for this one. I wasn’t super happy with how they turned out, but I know I’m my harshest critic sometimes. I had a really rough time with the eyes. Is there a cookie character eye class I can attend? Ugh.

The next one was not as many tiny spaces to fill, but it had it’s own challenge.

This one has stripes in the tail, so I had to do a wet-on-wet technique.

Here’s the finished product. Again the eyes are rough and there is some cratering, but not too bad.

Thankfully I didn’t have to do too many ponies, because there were amazing rainbows to go with this set too. Can’t go wrong with a perfect rainbow! I pieced these together with a small flower cutter that I smooshed a little, and a couple circle cutters for the rainbow.

The birthday girl’s name went on the clouds.

I usuallly just google a bit and then “wing it” with my fonts. I like how this one turned out.

Little girls (and big girls) love sprinkles, so I rounded out the set with some rainbow sprinkled 4’s.

For the record, I’ve sworn off characters for now, they give me way too much anxiety. 😛
