I am not a gym rat but I have a “thing” for dance-y group classes. The more choreography, the better. Funky, with a side of shake.that.thang, is optimal. So I thought our AMAZING instructor (with her flawless queueing and unmatched choreography) and her devoted hoot and hollerers deserved some inspired cookies; the brownies were dairy and gluten free to accommodate specific needs in the room. Some of the shirts have been modeled by fellow dancers and some were just one’s I would buy if they were available… Woot woot.
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.
These cookies are a tribute to one AMAZING woman who, while fighting breast cancer, continued to train and successfully competed in an iron man competition. She then topped that off with a marathon. Some people defy the imagination.
When she was going through her treatment, she and her friends would wear pink wigs in solidarity and they had little paper baseball caps on a stick that were part of their celebrating “fun without cancer.”
There is so much more to being engaged now than when I was going through that moment of my life. Now there are fun ways to ask friends and family to be in the bridal party (ahem, like cookie boxes!) and the wonderful news is celebrated with engagement parties. Definitely showing my age by becoming aware of such norms just within the past year or two…
A wonderful repeat customer’s daughter just became engaged and I was so happy to create the “will you be my bridesmaid” boxes and the cookies for the engagement party. Thanks Jennifer!!!

That ring got bling!
Just the right size….
Joan and Steve have floated into wedded bliss. Joan has sailed all of her life, even traveling abroad to compete for her university team! So it made complete sense that they choose a nautical theme for their ocean side wedding. May their marriage be ‘anchored’ by humor and commitment and their love be as wide as the sea.
The image from their invite that was my inspiration…
Lots and lots of guests for lots and lots of fun.
“As I recall, I think, we both kinda liked it.” What’s not to like about the wedding of Emilie and Dave. Beautiful bride, handsome groom, happy family and friends. That dance floor was definitely a hopping place (maybe we were all hopped up on cookie sugar?) ! A Tiffany blue theme popped up throughout the wedding, including in their wedding favors. Here are the designs that Em and Dave picked:
The table setting…
These sweet cookies were for the children attending their wedding. Alex (of Alex and Ashley fame) is an incredible, uber talented graphic designer who whipped up a beautiful floral, rustic theme for their wedding info site. I referenced those florals and golden touch he added when creating their cookies. Did I mention how Amazing and Awesome “A & A” is to cookify?
