H’s 3rd Birthday – Frozen April 29, 2015

Last month I made cookies for a neighbor’s daughter’s 3rd birthday.  One of the moms followed up with me after the party to ask if I could do cookies for her daughter’s birthday this weekend.  The theme is Frozen so I went with these snowflake shapes that I’ve done before for another Frozen party.  I felt a little guilty using the same cookie cutter for two parties but it was what I felt most comfortable with so I went with it.  For these cookies I used a vibrant violet, sky blue, and pale pink gel coloring which I think look great together.  Instead of sanding sugar or sprinkles this time I used the edible shimmer dust to give the cookies a little shine. Happy 3rd Birthday H!  I hope you have a great birthday!

Polka Dots for K’s 1st Birthday April 26, 2015

When I took my first cookie decorating class I wanted to be able to be the mom who could make cute cookies for her kids’ special days.  This weekend I was thrilled to be able to make cookies for my niece K’s first birthday party.  I love the big #1 cookie cutter that I have so that’s what I chose to use. My sister-in-law was sweet enough to give me a sneak peak at the paper products she bought for the party so I used that as my inspiration when it came to decorating.  I went with pink and white and a little yellow just to mix it up a little and because the yellow is just so bright and fun.

K won’t remember that I made cookies for her birthday but maybe one day she’ll see pictures and know that I wanted to contribute cookies to help celebrate her very special first birthday.

Happy birthday sweet girl!  XOXO  Auntie
