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!

The PTSA has planned a few staff appreciation activities throughout the year.  I was asked to consider baking for one of the events last month. The fall themed lunch was an assortment of soups, breads, and desserts.

I made this fall cookie arrangement for the teachers. According to my kids the teachers all loved them!



Rainbows September 16, 2016

Last month I started taking a barre class with a friend.  In the last month I’ve gone almost 4 days per week and I’m possibly addicted to barre class….wait, what was my point?  Oh yes!  Two weeks ago at 5:45am I was checking in to an early morning barre class when the nice woman at the front desk started quizzing me about where I was from.  I’m from out of state and from a small town out of state so when she was able to immediately guess my small town high school I was surprised. One thing led to another and today I delivered the cutest batch of rainbow cookies to my fellow high school alum for her daughter’s birthday party.  I’ve done rainbows before but it’s been a few years ago and I’ve had a lot of practice decorating cookies since then.  I was so happy with these cookies that I sent a few extras to school with my twins to share with their teachers.

Regular Season – SEAHAWKS!

My daughter was invited to a Seahawk pep rally last weekend to celebrate the first regular season Seahawks game.  I was making cookies for another reason and had extra dough so I made these Seahawks cookies for her to bring to the party.  Go Seahawks!



Wedding Bells

A friend saw one of my Facebook posts a few months ago with cookies for a destination wedding and reached out to see if I’d be open to making cookies for her niece’s wedding in September.  Last weekend I delivered 100 cookies for her bridal shower.  The destination for this wedding is a winery in central Washington so they wanted shower cookies to coordinate.  I wasn’t able to find wine barrels but these engagement rings, fluffy white wedding dresses and wine glasses were perfect for the shower.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Duffy!

This week I was busy baking and decorating beach themed cookies for Isabelle’s 9.5 birthday.  Her actually birthday is in the winter but she really enjoys having beach parties with her friends so she celebrates with a fun beach party in the summer.  This year she requested palm trees and sunglasses for her birthday cookies.

Take Off for Will’s 1st Birthday! August 7, 2016

I’ve been making cookies for my step daughter’s special celebrations for the last couple of years and her friends have become some of my biggest cookie fans.  A couple of weeks ago I shared a photo on Facebook of cookies I did for a destination wedding.  In response to that photo I got 3 emails from friends asking me for cookies for a few upcoming events.

One of those requests was from the mom of one of my step daughter’s friends.  In celebration of Will’s 1st birthday she wanted a few cookies to go with the airplane themed party they’re having.  I didn’t have an airplane cutter but was easily able to find one on Cheapcookiecutters.com and they were able to ship it within the week so I would have it in plenty of time.

Happy birthday 1st birthday, Will! Happy to be a part of this special celebration!
