Gone Fishin'

Who's going to the lake this holiday weekend?

My customer is and she requested that I create red, white and blue fish cookies
for her family and friends to snack on at the lake.

These little guys are so cute and happy it is almost a shame to eat them. Almost...

I was inspired by these cookies from Funky Cookie Studio.

All set to travel!  Happy Fishing!

Cookies for a Cure

Today, St. Louis is hosting the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.  My customer and her family are participating in the race and are celebrating something very special this year.

Her mother has been breast cancer free for 10 years!

My customer asked me to create some decorated sugar cookies to commemorate the occasion.  She knew that she wanted a cookie shaped like the pink ribbon and another cookie with the #10 on it.

I love these cookies by Patti, so I decided to design the assortment with 
the ribbon, a plaque with the number 10 and a flower.

I added sanding sugar to the ribbon's edge and the center of the flower for sparkle and texture.

I'm crazy for polka dots!  This plaque was inspired by this design from JJ Spencer.

The plaque would be great for a birthday assortment, as well.

Congratulations and Blessings for many more years to come!

UPS Cookies: It's Been a Great Ride

My customer was throwing a retirement party for her husband and requested decorated sugar cookies for the occasion.  Her husband was retiring from UPS and she knew exactly what cookies she wanted.  She even provided the cookie cutters!

The assortment would include the UPS truck, the UPS shield logo and an old school box with white string tied around it.  I suggested the wording on the boxes and the design was complete.

I did some research on the UPS truck and used this image for my inspiration.

This cutter was a square, but I designed the box as a cube to make it look three dimensional.

This delivery box could also work in my new home gift box as a moving box.

Congratulations on your retirement!

Happy Birthday, Baby!

My customer loved the baby face decorated sugar cookies that I had made for another customer and asked that I recreate them for her daughter's 1st birthday party.  

She also sent me a photo of some #1 cookies by Lori's Place on Etsy
that she wanted me to create.  

The number 1 cookies are so fun with coordinating polka dots
and edged in matching sanding sugar.

I redesigned the colors on the the baby to flow with the #1s.  I added polka dots to the headband and sanding sugar to the center of the flower.

The cookies went home with the guests as party favors.

Happy 1st Birthday, Jemima!
