Whimsical

Just a little whimsy of a hopping bunny and some late summer flowers.

I love using minis when you have to feed a larger crowd but still want to make those couple of bites special.

Happy Anniversary times 61!

Can you imagine being married 61 years?  Quite the accomplishment so I wanted the cookies at their party to be sweet and elegant yet celebratory!  I used ivory and a dusty rose (dark pink with a splash of ivory) and some gold highlights to that end.

The customer gave me this photo of Nonna and Grandpa.  I wanted a lace like frame so I pulled out a sugar sheet and a trusty Martha Stewart edge punch and voila!

Nonna is said to make the best meatballs in town and Grandpa the same in wine.

Here’s a toast to many more years!

Initial Impression

With lots of out-of-town guests attending the wedding, the groom’s mother decided to make up welcome gift bags.  One of the treats inside the bag was this little four-pack of cookies.  Since mom didn’t want any particular theme, I went with what I knew: the couple’s colors were light pink and grey; their initial’s were “M” and “R.”   The bags used were pretzel bags found at Michael’s, Wal Mart, Hobby Lobby, even our local grocery store. They perfectly fit four 1.5 inch  cookies!

I wanted the grey minis to be a bit more elegant since the pink ones were simple hearts or initials.

Thank goodness for LARGE tables.  Really, really.  Some day I’ll own one of those rolling baker stands that allows you to stack cookie sheets.  But not today…
