Cookies: Z, 6, and Super Mario!

Hello. Today’s blog is brought to you by the letter Z, and the number 6!

That’s right, Zachary is 6 years old! He is the son of a close family friend, and I was lucky enough to get to make his birthday cookie favors.

It is his mom’s tradition to always do Z and his age, so this year was Z and 6.

His birthday party was Super Mario themed, so I there had to be Super Mario cookies as well!

These Marios took me forever. Note to anyone wanting Mario cookies – do not even attempt to ask for more than a dozen. I will not do it. Sorry. Instead of killing myself with a ton of Marios, I decided to do some mushrooms and stars also.

Aren’t they cute!?

Bagged and ready to go…

I am still hoping to get a couple pictures of the birthday boy enjoying his cookies, so when I get them I will add them here!

Over the Hill Cookies

Made these cookies last week for a coworker’s 50th birthday party. Black icing is a little intimidating so I stuck with just black details…

Recently bought some sprinkles (my serious addiction), and my purchase included a sample pack of sprinkles… while I was getting ready to decorate these I realized there might be black sprinkles in that pack.. so I did a few like this. I love these!

I searched for over the hill cookie ideas and came across a lot of tombstone cookies. Well that’s easy enough, and I already had a tombstone cookie cutter.

Didn’t want to do them all the same, so I had to come up with another saying. I knew they would be appropriate for the birthday dude, because his wife was asking for “old man” or something like it. I think this is fun and “funny” to go along with the over the hill theme!

Hope the birthday dude loved them!

Caitlin’s 1st Birthday Cupcake

I was asked to make the smash cake for a coworker’s daughter’s 1st birthday. She wanted a giant cupcake, very girly. Here is the end product!

Giant Cupcake

It’s just yellow cake, with vanilla buttercream frosting. Very yummy! I borrowed the big top cupcake mold from another coworker, and made regular cupcakes to match with the leftover batter.
