Our ‘deerly’ beloved eldest turns 30 today. Is there a story behind deer and our family? I ‘herd’ that it is so… These cute, aah.doe.able cookies were cut out using several fabulous and sturdy Ann Clark cutters. As the desired look was to have them be “fawning” over each other, I baked a base of chocolate chip cookie dough (double Nestle semi-sweet batch to make the “ground”- two 9×12″ pan size fit perfectly into a regular BRPboxshop cake box). Long cocktail picks that i added to the back of each deer (after front decoration was complete and dried) lent support to hold these delicate legged creatures upright. Stiff royal icing was used to cover the picks. Icing color was a mix of Americolor Ivory with a touch of chocolate brown. I had a little bit of extra dough/doe after rolling out 31 deer (always make one extra in case of accidents) so I added a few sayings from her early childhood to polish off the delivery.
Zumba instructor birthday party. Shake it and birthday cake it! Can I get a woot woot?
Made this flower bouquet for a special birthday last summer. Love the ease and simplicity that cookie flowers allow. Make as many or as little flower cookies as you want. Throw in some leaves for good measure. Change the colors or shapes to work any time of the year.
This isn’t her first rodeo, y’all! The birthday girl turned 3 with a sweet rodeo themed birthday party. Roped the birthday guests in with these terrific treats!
The parents are gluten intolerant so I made these gluten free treats for them!
Happy first birthday Aiden! These sweet treats went to a winter ONEderland party! Serve on a platter or as favors!
Her fav color is tiffany blue and she wanted it accented with white, gold, and black. Hey, on your birthday, you get what you want! Hope all your wishes came true!
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 am continually amazed by what I learn doing research for cookie sets. This job keeps me young and in the know. Rick and Morty is an adult animated sci-fi action sitcom that was based on a parody of Back to the Future. It follows a cynical mad scientist and his grandson on their weird and wacky adventures. Apparently, we forgot to tell kids that this late night cartoon was not supposed to be for children. Here was my take for 9 year old’s birthday party.
The birthday girl is a whiz at basketball. How legit is this club team that they are sponsored by Adidas! Baller!
The theme for this 2 year old’s birthday was vintage trains. I used ivory Americolor gel as a base, letting the cookies dry overnight. I started by airbrushing the blue stripes on the vintage train cookies. I then “aged” all of the cookies by using a stiff brush and terra cotta dry powder, applied randomly around the edges of the cookies. You could also use a light airbrush coat instead.
The rest of the decorating involved royal icing, stamps, and those Rainbow Dust edible pens! I’d CHOO.CHOOse these cute designs for any train themed party!
Ready for pick up!
