Cherish You

Mother’s Day 2017 brings attention to that mom who is fine and fancy,  who directed the movie that was your youth, made things feel just right and comfy.  Thanks for schooling us, Mom.  We cherish you.

Hands Down

So many interested stories to cookie.fy.  There were on a field trip to VA, far away from CO, when it happened.  Let’s just say it involved a nail, her daughter’s pointer and middle fingers, and the emergency room.  At least she is a lefty and the injuries were on the right hand… These cookies were a thank you to the administrator who took wonderful care of her, while keeping the parents appraised of the situation.  The daughter and caretaker missed the tour of Mt Vernon- thus the inclusion of President Washington.

Canteloupe? Um. They did!

They quietly became Mr. and Mrs. and held a small reception of immediate family and closest friends afterward.  Since her business is running a gym, their cookies had a few “gym dandy” word puns… Who could resist “Oh My Quad, they’re Married” or “And they Lifted happily ever after”????

Hoppy Easter 2017

A little late to the (cake) plate on this post but just love the umbrella cutter (still crushing on all things Killer Zebras).  I tweaked the original design to incorporate Easter bunnies.  If you haven’t noticed, I am in a geometric phase; bring on the structured rabbits. Hope you enjoy!

St Patrick’s Day 2017

Does life ever get the best of you and you get from point A to point B just in time? That was my March and most of April.  Busy is not bad, just lamenting that there are only 24 hours in the day (or that I could be a bit more efficient?).  Back to prioritizing blog posts…

The cookie platter from St Patrick’s Day showcased some delightful stencils from the ever amazing Killer Zebras.

a Fine.Apple

If you were a fruit, you’d be a fine-apple, a shine-apple, a no whine-apple with whom I’d like to dine-apple.

For a pink and gold and mint colored party.

Huh.  Apparently I don’t have a pineapple cutter (how did that happen?) so I “frankensteined” two cookie cutters to make these pineapples…

Great Gatsby

These Gatsby wedding favors were a cinch to create, thanks to fabulous stencils from Melanie at  Killer Zebras! Black and gold were the colors of the day. Gatby 2.jpg

Rokem gold mixed with water was painted at a diagonal directly on to the cookie.  Then the white and black royal icings were piped on and left to dry.

I covered the white icing with a Stenci-Blocker from Stencibelle and airbrushed Amerimist Gold sheen using a KZ stencil.
