Graduation Cookies 2013

These high school graduation cookies were made for Jayla. School colors were purple, black, and white. I tried to do less black and more of the other two colors because sometimes too much black icing scares people. 🙂

I have been practicing using different fonts lately. This is one of my favorites. 🙂

Since I do everything freehand, this post by Lizy B helped me a lot!

The turquoise wall behind me is the baby’s room. We’re not finding out the sex, so we wanted a bright neutral color that we can add to later. All of the furniture will be white.

Sea Creatures Cookies

Last year for my mother-in-law’s church crab feed live auction I made these cookies. This year I wanted to do something a little different, while still sticking to the under the sea theme.

I found this amazing set of cutters on the Wilton website. Included were so many “sea” creatures that I had a hard time narrowing it down to just a few!

I sketched out my ideas on paper first, but once I hit the cookie it was all freehand.

I outlined in black to give it that cartoon feel. I just love how it makes the colors pop.

The eyes I used the same technique I used on my Santa cookies. I love how googly-eyed it made them and it turned out perfect for these silly sea creatures.

The next day I got an email from my mother-in-law telling me that bidding for my cookies was fierce, but that my husband’s grandpa persevered. I told him next time I will make him his own plate so that he doesn’t have to bid on them. Haha..

Goodbye 2012, Happy 2013!

Happy New Year friends!

20130101-120026.jpg

2012 was a really good year for this little blog. Thank you everyone who follows and reads and comments! You make me want to keep doing this day after day.

I’ve made a few personal blog goals for the coming year, and I can’t wait to share more treats and continue to learn and try new things.

I made the cookies above for our little New Years house party we went to. I used my new curly number cutters my mom bought me for Christmas:

20130101-120110.jpg

I created this color swatch to work from. I wanted bright fun colors, but something a little different than what I normally do.

20130101-115702.jpg

It was fun trying to get my icing to match colors I chose ahead of time.

20130101-115711.jpg

I iced the small tile cookies by pouring the icing over the cookie, like I did with these I Voted cookies. It might be my new favorite method of icing. It’s easy and I don’t have to outline and flood each one. I did the same with the numbers, but in white.

I thinned out the remaining icing and put just a tiny bit into a squeeze bottle. Then I squeezed it and let the color splatter all over the numbers. (Saw this technique on Sugarbelle’s blog here.) It was fun and came out so much better than I was even hoping!

20130101-115915.jpg

Once the splatter on the numbers dried, I planned on attaching them to a couple base cookies and then icing the bases. But…. I ran out of time. So I used hot glue. Sorry cookies. (Oh and I learned a tip from the cookie gals of Cookie Con. Place some bunched up cling wrap on the platter before stacking the cookies, and they won’t slide around. It worked great!)

20130101-115933.jpg

20130101-115950.jpg

I stacked the tiles all around the base cookies, and they were ready for the party!

20130101-120049.jpg

I’m so ready for 2013, bring it on!

What goals or resolutions did you make for the New Year?!

Anniversary Sweets

My coworker Jaz asked me to make sweets for his wife for their 3rd anniversary. He said I could make whatever I wanted! He had not yet tried my cookies, so I definitely wanted to include some cookies… and then I thought, what is more romantic than chocolate covered strawberries?! Together they would make a cute little love tray.

Here is the picture I used for color inspiration (since he had no idea what colors would be good)…

20121015-211103.jpg

… and here are my colors. My pink came out a little more purple, but I still love how they looked together.

Here are the cookies. I stuck with hearts. Cuz they’re all lovey and stuff.

and the romantic strawberries…

On a side note, I know 3 people (they happen to all be men) who don’t like chocolate covered strawberries. Why you might be wondering? Because they don’t like strawberries. WHAT? How is that even possible? They must be aliens or something.

What a lucky lady you have, Jaz!

Wine Cookies

 

My coworker asked me to make her some wine themed cookies for her friend’s birthday. I had all the cutters already, but I had not yet had the opportunity to use them!

I did 1/2 red wine and 1/2 white wine.

20120915-074741.jpg

The birthday girl’s name is Rose so I came up with things on the wine labels to go with her name. The first I did a little rose, one said “Rose’s Vine,” one said “B-Day Blend,” and one said “Red as a Rose.”

Under the Sea 3’s

The little girl that got the Caillou cookies is now 3!

Her theme was The Little Mermaid, but I thought that Ariel and Flounder were a little out of my comfort zone… we came up with a cookie that is more my style, but would still coordinate well with the feel of the party.

All of the decorations were pink and purple, but I added some bubbles to go with the “under the sea” theme.

Bridal Shower Lingerie Cookies

Last time I made lingerie it was for Valentines Day.

These were for a bridal shower! Wedding colors are eggplant and taupe. I got permission to throw in some hot pink to make them Pop! There were 3 dozen total, each a little bit different. Here are just a few of them:
