Go Dodgers! T-ball Cookies

It is amazing how happy little people can be just because of a cookie. And from leftover icing no less!

Royal Icing Flowers

I got bored the other day and felt it necessary to use some leftover icing to make three hundred flowers that are the size of dimes and nickels....to use later of course. Naturally I have no idea when, but I am storing them indefinitely in good faith that they will make it onto mason jar cookies one day.

Bachelorette Party Cookies 2.0


Dino Birthday

I will say, I am in LOVE with these cutters.  I now have two awesome cutters, and these little guys were a hit at the birthday party they were ordered for:

Happy Monday!

Hello Summer!

It has been way too long, but the good news is we survived the crazy-busy spring!! And as luck would have it, I made a decision that has already improved my life greatly. I bought a cookie projector!!!! I am SO EXCITED and I feel SO HIGH TECH!! The fact that we mounted it using a poster tube, shish-kabob skewer, and a clamp thanks to inspiration from Sweet Hope Cookies, is SO NOT high-tech, but it worked!! I cannot get over how cool and tiny this little projector is!

I had a request for some Texas A&M/Animal Science themed cookies, so I used my super awesome projector to get them done. I know that I will get better with practice, and I hope to use the projector to pipe actual words at some point, but for now, I think these are a good first attempt.

I took several pictures, but the lighting in this one is the best:

I feel so fancy with my little set-up:

I really love my new toy :)


Easter 2016

A late post is better than late cookies, at least that is what I keep telling myself. Do you ever get that feeling in life (at home, at work, or any other aspect) that you are on speeding bus? And the wheels aren't just coming off, two of them have perished in flames, and you are skidding sideways...and the bus just. won't. slow. down. No? No one? 

Well it's spring and work is nuts, travel is ludicrous, I have a new back injury I'm trying to figure out how to manage without going insane, and well, It feels like the runaway bus is on fire. Engulfed. But, spring becomes summer, and we all get our life back, just in time for the pretty weather to also turn to flames....okay that's enough, things are getting depressing.

Happy cookies = happy thoughts. Although these started and ended like our bus, I only took pictures of the ones that turned out right.....maybe if I EVER try the other design again, I'll share. Maybe. The upside is, some good cookies happened despite all things chaos, right?!

I hope your bus is slower than mine, enjoy spring while we have it. 😁

St. Patrick's Day 2016 ☘

Well. Life has been off of the rails, I don't even know where to start, so I won't. You can just trust me. Anyway, there was a challenge of sorts to find a way to squeeze some cookies in. And since I ordered special stencils for both St. Patty's and Easter, well, I had to make it happen.

Disclosure. I had two stencils I bought and a freebie that came with my order for SPD, I tried two and only one was a success. Maybe user error, maybe not, jury is out.

I also bought scrapbook paper on sale for 14¢ at Michaels in an attempt to look more professional. So here we go:

My normal photo job:

Happy Spring!

A Peanuts Christmas

The post may be late, but cookie project 3 of 3 actually got done, and on time.  Sadly, I didn't get any decent shots of them on platters, so these will have to do.

Happy New Year!
