Hop to It

Ryan wanted her birthday to be centered around jack rabbits.  I did a cookie take on the invitation artwork (sorry I can’t give the artist credit/wish I knew who her/his name!) and added a few embellishments…

I wanted a soft background with lattice work  (those rabbits had me thinking of Mr. MacGregor’s fence but with something sweet for 5 year old girl …). Stencil hero Killer Zebras came through again with just the right touch.

After I flooded the cookie in pink and airbrushed gold sheen (Americolor), I put the base of white royal icing for the bunny (and the black eyes about 4 hours later).  They dried overnight before I added the details with my trusty Rainbow Dust pens.  Luckily I had some purple flowers I had made with leftover icing from another cookie set; they worked perfectly to sync up with the invite design. And the result:

Sharpest Tool in the Shed

Lots of catching up to do on this blog… going back to Father’s Day in June!!! For greeting cards and cookiers alike, ‘power’ tools are a big point of conversation during this yearly celebration. Of course, I had to create a “word play” take on that theme:

Hats Off to the Graduate

Can’t believe that our baby girl is graduating from University.  Not such a baby anymore. We are unbelievably proud of her. As a nod to her achievement, I made these quick three cookies: jumbo-sized for her jumbo-sized accomplishments!  Way to go!

A Big Deal

It’s a BIG DEAL when friends that you play cards with are such fun and so appreciated! Here’s a nice way to let a couple know that they are the king and queen of the card group.  A sweet way for the client to say thank you? Yep, ACE’d it.

Bunnies

Not sure of what cookie favors to take into school for her daughter’s birthday, the client sent me several photos of her incredibly adorable six year old for inspiration. One of the photos showed her hugging her favorite stuffed animal bunny.  Bunny bonanza!  I sketched the idea, passed it by my customer, and was good to go.  The bunny cutter was from the MeriMeri 2015 Easter collection.  I happened to have a small carrot from R&M Internationla Corp‘s mini veggie cutter set that went perfectly for the look of the favor I was trying to achieve.  I am still giggling about the carrot bow tie I gave him…

Here are the bunnies in process.  Only 4 colors needed.

I also made 5 folk bunnies for the family to just eat at home (they are amazing and I love my repeat customers!). Playing up the texture…

Bookmarked

Carrie and Elizabeth are true book enthusiasts and for their wedding they wanted to create a favor that had that “snuggle.up.with.a.cup.of.joe.and.a.good.read” vibe.  The couple had already found some mugs they liked so I wanted to create cookies that would fit into the cup.  I thought some nice bookmarks would be clever and asked them to pick a few of their favorite books. I also included one book shaped cookie because I just couldn’t pass up the ‘chapter/page turner’ word play…  Here’s the result:bookmarks

The whole kit-and-kaboodle before they were heat sealed into their bags.

GRATEst Valentine Ever

Who doesn’t love a cheesy Valentine? Well, this is certainly one of my GRATEst ever.  So zesty.  Ripping the word play to shreds!
