Cookie Lips

Posted on February 29th, 2016 in Cookies

There were lots and lots of these cookie lips done over the weekend. Lips  in shades of red and pink with a small floating heat detail on the side.

Since there were lots of these cookies made, I was able to make a few different flavors such as the always requested vanilla, chocolate (my daughter’s favorite) and cinnamon.

Thanks for stopping by.

I worked on the following cookies for my cousin in Illinois. As they celebrated her daughter’s 2nd birthday she requested cookies to hand out as Thank You favors to guests at the party.

Halloween 2015

Posted on October 29th, 2015 in Cookies

If you are not ready by now well… then go off to the store and load up with candy and costumes because Halloween is just around the corner.

So here I am posting the Halloween cookies I made a few weeks ago just in the nick of time. Happy Halloween everyone!!!

All the cookies were on the simple side. Let’s just say they were simple but cute.

Candy Corn.

I have a love/hate relationship with Candy Corn. I kind of like it, but not in huge quantities. When it comes to Halloween, I always have to make CC cookies.  I love the one with the mustache….

Cupcakes.

I wanted to add more design to the wrappers and what better way to do it than with the spider webs. If you look closely, I also added some “dimension” to the layers of frosting.

Minnie Mouse.

A year or two ago I made a Halloween Minnie Mouse without a plan in mind. It wasn’t my favorite, but it has been very popular in other places such as Pinterest. Last year I baked the MM with intentions of making it better and I never finished it. I was not going to let it happen this year. I baked it (again without knowing what I would do with it) and since my husband loves zombies (crazy dude) I decided to turn her into a Zombie MM. Loved it!!

Pumpkins.

The same way I always make CC, I always make Pumpkins. I love playing with them, but unfortunately I didn’t have much time to put up a fancy cookie so I just added details in between the pumpkin separations (you may not be able to see it) just like I did with the cupcakes.

Candies & Spider Webs.

I forgot to take individual pictures of those two cookies, but you can see the in the last image. Again, simple cookies due to my lack of time.

Have a safe and happy Halloween. I look forward to spending another super cold evening around the neighborhood with my children hoping for the good candy to land in their Halloween bags.

Happy Halloween from a Dart Vader, a grown up Bumblebee and a Pink Lemonade Princess.

Minecraft Sweet Treats

Posted on October 21st, 2015 in Cakes, Cookies, Cupcakes

One of my best friends, Dessie, gave me the opportunity to work on a Minecraft project. They were ready to celebrate her son’s 7th birthday with a Minecraft theme and I was up for the challenge.

My son is a huge fan of this game. I don’t understand it and to be honest it makes me dizzy just looking at  it. Noah was part of this cake and cookie making process from beginning to end as he “educated” me about the game, the characters and the purpose of the game (which I still don’t understand, but I won’t tell him that).

This is my second time making a Minecraft cake. The making of it can be… very time consuming.

  1. You need to take the time to color the material (fondant) into many shades of each color. 3-4 brown and 3-4 green and a few grey.
  2. Measuring (and later cutting) the squares can be tedious. You have to take into consideration the size (height and length) of the cake to make sure that the squares will fit properly. It can be a pain in the … neck.
  3. Once you know the exact measurement of the squares you have to cut and cut and cut. It really takes a lot of time if you don’t have some specific tools. I don’t, so I had to make rows and rows of fondant strips and cut them individually.
  4. Once the squares are cut, the process of putting the cake together is easier. This is the fun part of the cake process.

The cake was a very decadent chocolate cake so to add to the variety, I made vanilla cupcakes. Specialty toppers with TNT and Creepers’ shapes.

The cookies were thank you favors. My son Noah was in charge of telling me what to make and which characters or items were more important in this very famous game. The whole set included: TNT, Creepers, Pigs, Pixel Axes, and I must not forget Steve.

Happy Birthday Leo!!

Lalaloopsy Cookies

Posted on June 24th, 2015 in Cookies

Here come the Lalaloopsy dolls again… in sugar cookies.

Three designs are shown here: Crumbs Sugar Cookie, Sunny Side Up and Dot Starlight.

 

all IMG_8329 ost

Just slightly different from a previous version. I made the bows ahead of time to save time. I added them later to the cookie while I was filling it.

Dot Starlight is the first Lalaloopsy doll. With a pretty red bow and a bright yellow hair, she is always ready for everything with new ideas. She is a dreamer…

yellow IMG_8325 ost

Crumbs Sugar Cookie. I always say it… she is my favorite, I don’t need to tell you why right? It’s always tricky to achieve her color of hair, but a mixing of several shades of pink will get it there. Crumbs, the best baker in Lalaloopsy Land.

pink IMG_8323 ost

Sunny Side Up, the farmer of the Lalaloopsy dolls. A fun tomboy. I love her bright orange hair and fuchsia bow. I decided to make her curls in a couple of different ways. The curls of one of them are a lot easier to make. The ones in  the other one, much faster. Can you tell which one takes me a lot longer to finish?

orange IMG_8333 ost

I love making these lovely cookies. They are time consuming, but it’s so worth it. There are several that I really want to make such as Snowy Fairest and at least one of the boys. I ran out of time unfortunately.

If you are interested in them, please let me know. They make wonderful edible party favors.

I would love to help you out and make your Lalaloopsy event a little bit more special with these sweet treats.
