Paint Your Own

Monday, January 10th, 2011

This past weekend, a friend hosted a birthday party for her child at a local paint-your-own pottery store.

It was a brilliant idea and all the little kids had so much fun. Including my own.

She asked if I could help her out with favors – she wanted little cookies in the shape of paint palettes, customized for each little guest. I wasn’t able to find a good cutter for the job, so I opted to hand cut these babies instead.

And then tied them up with little bows.

It was a fabulous party for a fabulous little girl! Thanks so much for having us!

Football cookies for Baby Jack

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

One of my best friends and her husband just had the most adorable little baby boy a few months ago. And he’s being raised in a Hurricanes/Dolphins household. The right way. :)

I made these sweet cookies in honor of that, combining all their favorite teams in onesies and letters.

Could they be cuter? More delicious? No. I think not.

Congratulations to some dear friends!

Babies, babies, everywhere

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

Two of our dear friends had bouncing baby boys quite recently. What better way to send our congratulations, than with cookies?

Cookies are just festive.

For little Scott Jr, whose gender was a surprise and who has a nursery decorated all in turtles.

And for Chase, a set of boy-themed onesies.

Congratulations to the new mommies and daddies! Enjoy your new little bundles of joy.

And the cookies :)

These themed cookies and cupcakes were the perfect addition to a very fun girls’ only party.

Vanilla cupcakes dipped in a chocolate ganache and accented with a royal icing heart.

And soft cookies in the shapes of hearts and high heels, with almond flavored icing and pearlized pareil accents.

Delicious with a dessert wine and good friends.

A patriotic dessert for a special celebration.

This cake was carved in the shape of the United States out of two layers of vanilla cake, one red and one blue. It was frosted in vanilla buttercream and decorated with patriotic slogans.

Chocolate cupcakes designed to complement the cake.
