Cookies for MOPS

Posted on April 25th, 2013 in Cookies

All that social media is … well, too much. It’s so hard to keep up. Post here, show there, update that. I need time and your patience.

This is another one of those posts where I will be showing you pictures of Sweet Treats that we have created and later on the stories behind them.  At least you get to see the pictures…. It will be done, promise.

So with that, and an apology to all of you for posting this with very few words we’ll get started.

Four dozen cookies went to MOPS of Ankeny, IA for an auction event they had in April. The Idea was make two dozen cookies for boys and two for girls.

Dinosaurs… Rooooar!!

Gymnastics Medals – Star Medals

Posted on April 24th, 2013 in Cookies

I am so excited to share with you the following post.

On April 20th my daughter Lillie participated in another gymnastics meet at Jacobs Gymnastics. This was an all around meet where they compete in all the apparatus – Beam, Floor, Bars and Vault. I had the wonderful opportunity to make cookies for them again.

A few months ago, I made medal cookies only for the Superstars team (the younger girls – Lillie’s team). This time, the older team that competed later that morning got sweet treats also.

Coming up with the design and colors took a little bit of time.  The inspiration for the final design came from all the medals my little Lillie has won over the past couple of years, most of them are stars. The Superstars’ group wear a hot pink with black leotard and no matter what happens, they all deserve a gold first place medal.

Here are the gymnastics medals designs for the April 2013 meet.

The Superstars group is made out of little girls that are 5-7 years of age. I couldn’t resist having these little gymnasts on the cookie. We have one girl balancing on one foot on the beam and another one making the split.

I made only a few medal cookies without a design, but they were the ones that got treated with the real gold color. You may not be able to see it, but they really looked like gold medals! It takes a lot of spray. Every cookie has a pink or red ribbon.

I made one gold medal cookie specially for Lillie.  She was actually worried that there would’t be enough cookies and she was not going to get one. I was laughing inside…. I didn’t say anything though.

 Hot Pink was the main color this time. One of the cookies features a gymnast wearing a colored leotard. I still like the ones with the solid color, but this time they were pink.  You can see my other gold medal cookies here.

It’s really getting tougher and the fight for first place gets tighter. All the girls have been improving so much as they get stronger with time. I still see videos and pictures of previous meets and I can see how far they have come. They are just an amazing group of little girls.
