Summertime!


Summertime is here!
School is finally out!  We decided to do something different for end of year gifts
for our teachers this year.  Instead of the traditional school themed decorated sugar cookies,
we thought that a summer time theme would really brighten their day.

I made these sunshine decorated sugar cookies using a flower cookie cutter
for my little guy's preschool teachers.


My 3rd grader made a bunch of this design all by himself for his teachers, as well.
I think that he did an awesome job!


For my kindergartener's teachers, I created this picnic blanket design, 
which was inspired by these cookies from Munchkin Munchies.
I used lustre spray, just like I did for these Wizard of Oz decorated sugar cookies.
It creates a more watercolor type effect that I think is really fun.


There are always lots of teachers to thank and a cookie seems like the sweetest little gift.

Have a Nice Day!


Aren't these cookies happy?!  They make a sweet little gift to show your appreciation.
I made these smiley decorated sugar cookies to say a big "thank you" to our neighbors.

We have the best neighbors!  The weather has finally gotten warm here, but when we turned on our air conditioner, it was not working properly.  So, I called our neighbors for a repair company recommendation.  They have lived in their home since our neighborhood was built over 50 years ago.  Not only did he give me a recommendation, but he offered to come take a look before I scheduled a repairman.  He fixed our air conditioner himself, including driving to the store to get the proper part.  Who knew that he was a licensed refrigeration/HVAC repairman?!  Although, it makes sense after all those years of owning his own bakery.

It is so nice to have such wonderful neighbors!

May the Force Be With You!

 
My customer requested Star Wars decorated sugar cookies to give as favors to the guests at her son's birthday party.  I presented her with several ideas and her son liked these best.
Inspiration for these designs came from Sugar Kissed.

The birthday boy wanted his cookies decorated with Yoda, R2D2 and light sabers.
These light sabers are covered in sanding sugar to make them extra sparkly.



I packaged each cookie individually for the guests to take home.





Happy 7th Birthday, Max!
