20170118_194636My friend at work wanted to take cookies to a party and asked me to make reptile cookies.  Eek!  Snakes give me the creeps!  I didn’t actually own any creepy cookie cutters so I had to consult my favorite cutter website and place an order asap.

As I started decorating these alligators I started to fall in love with them and started thinking of so many other ideas for using this cutter – baby shower, teacher appreciation, Valentine’s Day!  So many cute opportunities to use this again.

The snakes were a challenge for me. I like this buttercream frosting so I had to think of a way to make sure the coil would come through in the finished product.  I used a fine tip black icing to outline the snake and then filled it in with the gold.  In the end I was happy with the outcome.  This is why I love making cookies for friends.  I would have never made a snake cookie before so this was a good new practice for me.

Ack!  I have to confess…I’m so behind on my blog posts and these under water sea creatures were from a party in…gasp….NOVEMBER!  What’s worse is they were for the children of one of my best friends.  I’m so sorry GypsyLife for not blogging about these sooner.

Anyway, Isabel and Alex have birthdays fairly close together so their busy mom threw one big party to celebrate.  This Under the Sea themed party even included a fancy real life mermaid and some ginormous Dory balloons.  I made these cute starfish, sea horse and shark cookies for the party.

My lovely neighbor is a real estate agent and was planning to host a holiday open house event with hot chocolate and a Santa photo opportunities for families.  She asked me to make cookies for the event.  We went with these simple tree cookies for the occasion.

What little girl doesn’t love Minnie Mouse?  A co-worker asked me last fall if I could make cookies for her daughter’s 3rd birthday.  I love the bright pink!
