Abby Cadabby Birthday

This was such a fun cake to do! It was for a little girl's 2nd birthday party and her theme was Abby Cadabby.  6" round top, strawberry swirl WASC with cream cheese filling, 10" bottom, marble with buttercream filling.  All iced in buttercream with fondant stars.  Stars were dusted with Disco Dust (a beautiful, edible glitter).
The little girl got a big smile on her face when she saw her cake.  melted my heart!

And a view of the top :)

Welcome to the world, baby Joshua!!

A dear friend of mine recently gave birth to her sweet baby boy, Joshua Lee.  Congratulations Audrey and Brian!! To celebrate, I sent her some onesie cookies (as well as a bag of mini cookies).  First I put them in a box to see how a boxed set would look. (I havent attempted to ship a boxed set of cookies yet, so Audrey got hers individually wrapped.)  She let me know when she got them that she and her family loved them.  Yay! That made me so happy :)

Love the ribbon on the boxed set!

Hello, Cupcakes!

These were some cupcake cookies a friend ordered for her bridal shower.  This was the first time I did a two-toned cupcake "wrapper" and I love how it turned out.  The top of the cookies also had disco dust which of course I love.  It makes the cookies so pretty and really adds a special touch!

Hello Kitty

I did a cake this weekend for a sweet little girl's 2nd birthday.  The night I did this cake I was actually at a party store and looked at all the Hello Kitty stuff they had.  Hello Kitty is so sweet and cute, and with her simple shapes and detail, she makes for a great cake model :)  there were so many ways I wanted to go with this cake, so I hope I get to do Hello Kitty again sometime!

New Cookie Packaging!!

I've been looking around for some different cookie packaging and was excited to find these boxes.  I've been eyeing some stationary boxes online, but those are a more expensive investment up front.  These dont hold many, but they would make for an adorable gift.

yummy chocolate chip cookies!

new packaging fits 2-3 regular size cookies. or several minis!! what a great gift!

apple cookies. so fun to do :)

Kacee's Baby Shower cookies

Facebook is awesome for re-connecting with people.  Some people I choose to not re-connect with, haha!, but most of the time I love it.  One of the people I've gotten to know again thanks to facebook is a high school friend Kacee.  She is expecting her first baby due anytime now and last month i got to go to her baby shower.  her sister ordered this cookie bouquet for Kacee.  I love the pregnant mama cookie!

thanks so much to the Painted cookie for her inspiration of the pregnant mama cookie. i will link her blog soon it is amazing.

Hang in there, Kacee! Your sweet baby boy will be here before you know it!

Yummm Ice Cream!

I had this cookie cutter for a long time before I finally got to use it.  Last spring our youth group did an auction to raise money for their trip to the LA Dream Center.  I feel blessed to have been able to help them go by offering a dozen cookies a month for a year to a lucky bidder :)  We started with the first dozen in August and these were what I came up with.

Whats really fun about getting to do these cookies is I get to pick the cookies each month.  So I get to use a lot of cutters that I've never used before and try out new things.  So fun! Its the least I can do to give back to a wonderful church who has done so much for us, and of course to our Lord who provides for us every step of the way.

Toy Story cookies

I did these cookies back in August for my friend Serena in Michigan.  Her little boy Bennett was turning 4 and a huge Toy Story fan.  Serena is a very talented work-at-home-mama who owns The Serene Dream Shop which has everything from screen tees, cloth diapers (my fave!!) and more.  Check her out!

I love how the Mr. Potato Head turned out. Woodys face was a bit too long, but he and Buzz were a lot of fun :)

Belt buckles, cowboy hats, and sheriff badges :)


Its hard to believe its been a year since I did my first Mario cake.  I think this is my 5th Mario cake now.  It was a lot of fun to do.  I added the side stuff as a last minute idea, if I do it again I'd make the "sky" a light blue.  but I was running out of icing, so this is what I kept it at.  Happy Birthday, Josh!  We love you, buddy!
