Sexy Undies Cookies

These cookies, believe it or not, were for a man’s 60th birthday! I think they are just perfect for Valentine’s Day though!

I love doing cookies like this because I can do every single one different and unique and yet the whole set goes so well together. And it’s so fun to look at all the designs and try to pick a favorite!

These started out as a heart cookie cutter, and I just cut the tip off to make a nice round canvas. ūüôā And of course I had to do black and red because those are the “sexiest” colors!

I did all kinds of undies…

and some cute bras to go along with them…

The details are what really make them all so different. Dots and bows and ties…

These were so fun to make and I hope they inspire you to make something fun and naughty for Valentines Day too!

Ladybug Cookies

These cookies were for my coworker’s best friend. She had a ladybug themed birthday party!

I used my balloon cutter for these. (I also have a mini ornament that would work for mini version!)

20140518-185741.jpg I outlined them in a thick black line, then dropped a dot in the center, and another in the center of the top half.

20140518-185748.jpg First I piped the head, then I piped the wings fanning away from it. Took me a few tries to get the angles right.

20140518-185800.jpg I always fill in my black first, because it tends to be much messier if I make a mistake!

20140518-190225.jpg¬†Then I filled in the red, with a little less icing than normal…

20140518-190232.jpg¬†…because I dropped big black dots right into it for my ladybug’s spots.

20140518-190238.jpg Finished them off with some curly antennae, and viola! Cute little ladybug cookies.

20140518-190248.jpg¬†Mini ladybugs would be totally cute for a little girl’s birthday!

Spiderman Cookies

Syler is 3! (He used to be 2. Before that he was 1.)

He had a Spiderman birthday, complete with cookies!

20140221-214714.jpg

I used an Easter egg cutter, turned upside down. Outlined in black, then dotted the center for reference for my eyes. I just did them by hand, so each cookie is slightly different, but all of them look like Spidy!

20140221-214730.jpg

Filled them all in dark red…

20140221-214734.jpg

Then piped on the web design in black buttercream. I even made Syler a special “3” cookie.

20140221-214738.jpg

Syler’s sisters got their very own cookies for their ages too. I’ve made Layla cookies for her 3rd birthday and her 2nd birthday. This year I was having a baby and couldn’t make her 4th birthday cookies, or her sister Aurora’s 1st birthday cookies. I wanted to make it up to them a little bit!

What’s It Gonna Bee? [My Baby Shower]

My mommy is AMAZING. She threw a wonderful baby shower for me a couple weeks ago. When trying to find a good and easy theme, I stumbled upon “What’s It Gonna Bee?” on Pinterest. Usually this is used for gender reveal parties, but since hubby and I aren’t finding out the sex of our little one, we thought the theme was perfect.

Here is the invitation:

20130724-114840.jpg

I made the treats. People were kind of freaking out that I shouldn’t have to make the desserts for my own party, but I feel like it would have been more weird to come to a party for me and there not be Carrie’s Creations cookies!

I fell in love with this photo a while back, and if anyone knows who it belongs to please let me know! I saved the photo from a google search to my phone and the uploaded that to my Pinterest board later… but I have been unable to find it since to give credit to where credit is due.

20130724-115741.jpg

I was unable to find a cutter in this shape, but I did find this cutter made by Cristin’s Cookies.

20130724-115656.jpg

I modified the inspiration picture above to fit Cristin’s cutter shape, and I have to say – I think I like it better!

20130724-114720.jpg

I outlined the whole bee in black, then filled in each section one color at a time.

20130724-114730.jpg

In addition to the cookie favors, I made cupcakes. Lemonade Cupcakes to be exact – some of my favorite, and they fit with the warm weather (hottttt weather actually) and the yellow theme.

Here is my inspiration picture, also found through google searching, and also without proper credit.

20130724-115724.jpg

I had a hard time finding little bees for the tops. I eventually stumbled upon these sugar bees at Layer Cake Shop, and they were perfect! I piped the frosting using a basic round tip to mimic the hive look, without overdoing it on the frosting.

20130724-114703.jpg

20130724-114709.jpg

20130724-114737.jpg Here are a couple of the other details from the party:

(this shirt I made/wore)

20130724-114907.jpg (my fingernails that my bestie did for me)

20130724-114857.jpg

(the table centerpieces I made)

20130724-114833.jpg

(the drink table)

20130724-114820.jpg

(the fruit salad a family friend made – her sex vote is girl btw, haha…)

20130724-114815.jpg

(some of the other foods served, and the little tags I made.. they’re hard to see but each tag has a little bee on it similar to the centerpieces)

20130724-114825.jpg

(and one of the games we played… everyone got to make their guess, and we will just have to wait and see who gets the closest!)

20130724-114801.jpg

It was a great shower and thank you to Mommy, Sandy, and Ann for helping out!!

Love & Marriage Cookies

Sticking with the elegant theme of black and white, I made these Love and Wedding Cookies as the favors for a bridal shower.

20130115-110018.jpg

I bought the Love cutter late last year and have been eager to use it ever since. I had a hard time figuring out the font to work with the shape, but I’m happy with how they turned out. I might tweak it a little next time.

20130115-110024.jpg

The next cookies were packaged together. The mom of the bride-to-be asked for a dress cookie, but since I didn’t have a cutter for that, I came up with this idea. She fell in love with it and so did I!

20130115-110030.jpg

Simple lines and details, but still elegant enough for a wedding (or shower in this case).

20130115-110037.jpg

I am also linking up these cookies to Lilaloa‘s Colorless Challenge!

Colorless Lingerie

I have made lingerie cookies a couple times before. Once for Valentine’s Day last year, and again for a bridal shower last summer.

Since then I acquired a new corset cutter, so I had a new design to work with this time. It will take some practice playing with it, but I am pretty happy with the couple that I did.

I also used this opportunity to go for the Colorless Challenge proposed by Georganne of Lilaloa.

It was hard… you have no idea how bad I wanted to throw in some hot pink or bright blue!

Mustache Cookie Pops

Mustaches are “in.”

Don’t know how something like that became a trend, but they’re everywhere!

AD loves mustaches. So for her birthday we put together some fun mustache pops!

20130102-151511.jpg

I only have 1 mustache cutter, which I used for my Lorax Cookies early last year. I used this cutter, along with a couple others to come up with a few different creative mustache shapes.

My new favorite way to ice cookies is to pour the icing over them over bowl like this:

20130102-151559.jpg

I make sure all the sides are covered, then just tap the excess off. Once it starts to set a bit, I move them to a wax paper lined baking sheet.

20130102-151606.jpg

I used this method to ice the small cookies I made here and here.

Then I just added some details with black and brown buttercream. (This was the fun part!)

20130102-151525.jpg

20130102-151532.jpg

Here is the birthday girl with her mustache!

… and this is Mallory, who you met last year when she made us fun red velvet donuts!

Giants Birthday Cookies

Zach (who I made these cookies for last year) is now 7!

He wanted a Giants themed party, so I went to town with my baseball cutters.

I made the traditional baseballs and bats, as well as baseball hats for the first time.

Per tradition, I also made Z’s and 7’s in matching colors. Good thing it’s also Halloween season, I found these black and orange sprinkles that went perfectly with the Giants colors!

20120924-083225.jpg

The jersey cookie was made especially for Zach. As soon as I brought the cookies over, he wanted to eat it immediately! **Zach actually told me later that I spelled the last name wrong. Oops!**

I also made these awesome SF Giants colored bridges, since the “bridge” is such a huge part of San Francisco, whether it’s the Bay Bridge or the Golden Gate, or any of the others.

See that SF symbol up there? I have made them before, but this time I decided to freehand it.

I started with a basic thin line…

Then shaped around it until I had the right angles and edges!

Here are all of the cookies together, ready for the party!

High School Graduation Cookies

A young lad in a family that we are very close to graduated high school (from my high school!) last week. He is the youngest son of my old swim coach. I offered to make cookies for his graduation party, and his mom gladly accepted.

I was discussing designs with my mom, and I knew I wanted to do something swimming related because the entire family was very immersed in the swimming world. My mom told me that he was “not that into swimming” and that it was mostly the older brother who had been interested in it. She said the younger only did it because his dad was the coach. I thought she was crazy, but I had kind of put off the idea anyway…

Then came the high school swim team’s awards night. My swim coach was retiring after 18 years of coaching high school, so a sort-of surprise party was arranged to bring in as many old swimmers as possible and flood the audience at the awards night. (I made and brought 6 batches of kettle corn for the event!) It was there that his youngest son, who’s “not that into swimming” won award after award, and it was obvious that he was one of (if not the) fastest/best guy on the team. I concluded that my mom was undoubtably wrong and that I was doing some sort of swimming cookies after all.

(When I told the graduate this story, he laughed and said he was more into swimming than his older brother!)

I ended up just doing one swimming themed cookie, because too many designs would have made me crazy. These are my high school colors, with a “splash” of “pool” blue.

20120604-093834.jpg

I made graduation caps, stars, circles with¬†our high school initials¬†on them, and fancy plaques with the graduate’s name.

20120604-092705.jpg

At my high school, the girls wear red robes and the boys wear black.

20120604-092714.jpg

20120604-092738.jpg

Here are the swimming cookies. For those not immersed in the swimming world, the red and black dots are lane lines that are strung the length of the pool to separate the lanes. At my high school, our swim team had a tight budget, so our school colors lane lines only came out for special occasions like a swim meet.

20120604-092723.jpg

Here are all the cookies on the platter. I love how the blue gives it a pop!

20120604-092751.jpg

Oh yeah and I did one 2012 cookie. I wanted to do more but I thought it would be too fragile.
