You know when you can’t get a song out of your head…? This particular one coincided a dear friend’s birthday and so the center cookie came to be created. I love the tall cake designs by Aime over at The Painted Pastry ; I took inspiration and put my own fall spin on several cookies for the set. The edible oak leaves came from talented Tammy Holmes. Lastly, what birthday would be complete without party hats and party blowers???
I made some mini fall leaves earlier in the season and now it was time to pull out the big guys. These full sized fall leaves went to a support group gathering for String of Pearls. Autumn is a time for reflecting , apropo especially in this case.
Autumn, in all it’s splendor, is my favorite time of the year. To celebrate the colors of the season, I baked some “autumnal” mini cookies to hand out to the neighbors! Just a little color to enjoy before we quiet down for winter.
