As a gift to a friend who also adores New Hampshire, I made these waffle cookies and bought some delicious Fuller’s Syrup to bring back all the best memories. Yum OHHHHH!
The waffles are simple square cookies. I added a royal icing layer in the form of a grid. Once dried, the cookies were dipped in extra thin icing to create the ivory icing covering of the cookie. I took a brush and scooped or moved the icing within the grids to make it look as real as possible. When that was dried, I mixed Americolor ivory and water and highlighted the shadows in the divots , etc. Chocolate brown for the syrup and egg yellow for the butter pat. Placed it all in a BRP Box for delivery!
This little slugger is rounding third base and heading for home. Always a “hit” to welcome a new baby boy and this baby shower was a sweet nod to his dad’s love of baseball! Used my favorite onsie cutter is from Kaleida Cuts and “baby” cutter from Bobbi’s Cutters on Etsy!
Sandy and Adam are great adventurers so it makes complete sense that their wedding would be in a lush, exotic tropical setting. For their bridal shower, I thought of dreamy, soft watercolors accented by their silver rings. The silver was from TMP and the watercolor was various mixings of Americolor‘s moss, leaf and forest green, and ivory with water.
I will eat them in a box. I will eat them while in my socks. They are so good, so good, you see. I will eat them by the Christmas tree. I will eat them here and there. I will eat cookies anywhere. This elf has certainly left the shelf. So you know where to sit your self.
The sweetest Christmas Eve dinner place cards you’ll ever find.
T-Rexy. T-riffic. Beau-T-ful. I’m putting some creativi-T into these dinosaur cookies, inspired by the lovely art of Jane Van Der Karr and of Tiny Tudor Cookies. Current infatuation is the look of wet-on-wet technique highlighted by edible ink pens (try Teri’s awesome fine tip pens over at TweetsCookieConnection !!!). Classic and classy. Make love, not Roar.
Such a romantic. He took her on a trip to Paris and, in the most lovely of settings complete with music, he asked her to marry him. Je t’adorABLE!!! At the celebration back home, cookies were served. Paris puns predicted??? Oui indeed. Here is a sampling from the set (yep, I neglected to get photos of the whole bunch before they went out the door. Oops.):
These little beauties made their way to near.and.dear military folk(s) in Afghanistan. Starting in 2001, this longest of US wars is at 18 years and counting. My many thanks to those who serve as they are asked. Come home safely.
