Little Deer Cookies

I can’t believe Gracie is 1!!

Her mama is one of my very best friends. She asked for deer cookies for her little dear’s first birthday party, so I knew I had to make something special!

  

How cute are these!?


I stuck to a simple design. It felt right. Didn’t want it to be cartoony.

   
Happy birthday gorgeous girl!!

Tiara and Bow Cookies

My coworker and I were both pregnant together and were due about 3 weeks apart. I made these cookies for her gender reveal party. I was SO excited to find out she was having a little girl, I LOVE to make pink cookies!

Mama is ALL about the pink, fluff, girliest of girly everything. I made her bows and tiaras to go with her princess theme shower.

I love using these bows because they’re little – only about an inch and a half tall. They pair perfectly with almost anything girly!

The tiaras I made from a new cutter. I’ve made princess crowns before (here), but I just loved the shape of this one!

I had these big pink pearls on hand that I thought made the perfect jewel for the tiaras.

And while I knew I wanted them sparkly, I didn’t want them glittery… if that makes sense. Instead of glittery disco dust I decided to go with sanding sugar to give them their sparkle. I started with a pastel pink, but it just wasn’t enough to give it any color. I added a little bit of this bright pink and mixed it together. I love how it turned out! Not overwhelmingly hot pink, but brighter than just a white outline.

Diamond Cookies

I’ve made diamond cookies a couple times recently, so I figured I would just post them both together!

The first round I did a pale blue with bright white diamond outlines. These were for a 25th birthday party and were paired with rose-gold colored bows. Rose-gold is NOT an easy color to make by the way.

The disco dust is what really makes these amazing!

I first wanted the sparkles on just the outlines, but when I went to brush off the rest (after they were dry) they didn’t look as spectacular. The sparkles might get everywhere when you’re eating the cookie, but they sure look pretty beforehand!

 The second round of diamonds I did for a bachelorette party. I thought white-on-white would be perfect for a wedding event. Even though the outline didn’t contrast with the rest of the cookie, they still stood out and looked amazing!

 The sparkles are really hard to capture in a photo. That’s why I took so many. 🙂 And because I’m kind of obsessed with them.

     When I told the bride I was going to do white-on-white diamonds she said “or even pink would be fine.” I knew I had to make her a pink one after that. Even the pink one looks super cute!

I absolutely LOVE these diamonds. They are a nice big size too, about 3″ across. Perfect for any “fancy” party! (And cute in any color!)

Curious George Cookies

Dalton just turned 1! Theme was Curious George. I love how these turned out!

I ended up not having to buy any specialty cutters for this set. The 1 and ballon I already had on hand. The bananas and monkies were made with different size circle cutters. The monkies I just added small circles (for ears) to the sides of a larger circle. Here is how I did the bananas:

I wanted to keep the set simple but still have bold colors. Sprinkles on the 1’s really brought it all together. As much as I love sprinkles I don’t use them often enough on my cookies!

For the monkies I used premade candy eyes. Really made them stand out and saved me so much time.

  

Happy Birthday little Dalton!

Easy Easter Eggs & Bunnies

I have been doing cookies pretty much non-stop since Christmas. Soo I decided to go with an easy design for my Easter cookies. 

I absolutely love how they turned out! 

 I outlined and iced all of them in plain white. This alone saved me so much time! 

The bunnies I reoutlined once they were dry, and dipped in rainbow non-pareils.   

I normally don’t like bunny cookies but this shape is so adorable and it’s only about 2 1/2 inches tall. Simple yet still festive and fun!

For the eggs I wanted a speckled look. I mixed food coloring with a few drops of lemon juice (normally I’d use vodka but I didn’t have any). 

  

Then used a straight edge paintbrush and a toothpick to “flick” coloring all over the cookies. 

  

I did both pink and blue and I’m kind of obsessed with how cute they are!

  

Hope everyone has an amazing Easter weekend!

Wizard of Oz Cookies

Miss Hannah just turned 1! We celebrated Hannah at this baby shower and at this gender reveal dinner.

Her party theme was Wizard of Oz, and her mama did an AMAZING job with all the little details! Parties can drive a modern mama crazy, but once it’s all pulled together it’s spectacular!

I was up for the task of making the cookies of course. I had a hard time deciding what to make because there are so many fun ideas with this theme! I decided to go with rainbows, ruby red slippers, and a bit of yellow brick road.

Here is my progression with the rainbows… I wanted it to be as even as possible but didn’t want to have to mark out the cookie ahead of time.

   

I filled each rainbow color below the line it matched, if that makes sense. I started with every-other color to make sure nothing ran together while it was wet. Then I came back a little while later and did the rest.

 

For the yellow brick road I decided to line it all ahead of time and fill each section individually to give it dimension.

 

 

I think this was the first time I made so many colors WITHOUT making pink. It was weird. And it may never happen again. 🙂

The ruby red slippers. *sigh*

I outlined and filled in red, then added some disco dust once they were totally dry. I used a paint brush to just barely wet the top with vodka (don’t freak out, it evaporates) then sprinkled the sparkles across the cookie. Let it dry overnight, then used another dry paintbrush to brush off all the excess. There was sparkles EVERYWHERE.

 

Here are the finished cookies all together.

Love the dimension on the yellow brick road cookies.

It’s hard to capture just how sparkly the shoes were. I kind of want to sparkle everything now. #sparkleallthethings

So lucky to get to make these for little miss Hannah.

Now here are a couple of the other details from the party…

Gender Reveal Party Cookies

My sweet coworker Tiffany is expecting her first baby. She asked me to make her cookies for her gender reveal party. The cookies were not doing the actual “reveal” so they just had to be blue and pink or something creative including both colors.

While racking my brain for ideas, I saw these cookies posted to Instagram. Tiffany LOVED the idea, so I went with it!

They bit into the reveal cupcake to find out that they’re having a girl!

Racecar Cookies

I bought a 3D printed racecar cutter that was going to be PERFECT for these racecar cookies for Syler’s Hotwheels party. When it came time to cut and bake the cookies, I pulled out the cutter and it had somehow gotten warped! Like unfixable, way too skinny, crooked warped.

Onto Plan B. I’ve had this 57 Chevy cutter since way back when – when I made 300 of them. It is way too long and fancy for racecars, so I had to do quite some trimming. I used my warped cutter as a reference.

I outlined in black to make the colors POP.

Then filled them in a bright blue.

I added window and tires, then red rims and a big red 4. Because Syler is 4! (Remember when he was 3? and 2? and 1?) I can’t believe I’ve had the privilege of making cookies for every birthday he’s had!

Happy Birthday Syler!

High Heel Cookies

Made these for a family friend. It was a prize she won at my baby shower (a year and a half ago) and we finally found a time to make them happen.

She loves high heels so I incorporated that, and then used my new cutters to spell out her name. These alphabet cutters are so fun, I can’t wait to use them again!

Valentine Owl Cookies

Whoooooo is your valentine?

IMG_8695

Sorry, had to.

But seriously. Owl be your Valentine.

IMG_8696

Okay I’ll stop now. 🙂

I made these cute little love birds for Valentine’s Day. Kept it simple by having only 1 color of outline/detail, and just a couple other colors for them all.

I love the way they turned out! ❤
