Doc McStuffins

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.

Because working on my blog takes so much of my time, I haven’t been posting my work lately. The fastest way for me to post my latest work is on PinterestFacebook and my new favorite Instagram. Check it out and join me!

I’ll be back with some details about these cookies.

Lalaloopsy Cookies – Faces

Posted on May 2nd, 2013 in Cookies

Lalaloopsy here, Lalaloopsy there, Lalaloopsy everywhere!!!

lalaloopsy dolls

These popular magical rag dolls are everywhere!! How can they  not be when they are so adorable. If I where only a few years younger (maybe more than a few) I would love to own some of them.  I would play with them all day long.

I have a six year old girl that for some unusual (crazy) reason, is not very fond of them. She owns some of the little dolls and some big ones. I even bought her Forest Evergreen (the Lalaloopsy boy) to see if I could convince her to like them, but nothing. So I guess for now in my household, I’m alone with my love for these so cute dolls.

Since I can’t play with them (maybe I can, but I won’t – that’d be weird, right?) I make cookies instead.

I wanted to make cookies different from the ones I’ve made in the past. Choosing which Lalaloopsy dolls to make is the dilemma. They all are so adorable! I visited their site (for the 100th time) and decided to go with the following rag dolls.

Lalaloopsy Cookies

Bee Spells-a-Lot. The gorgeous soft orange hair and pretty blue eyes. This is one very smart cookie.

Crumbs Sugar Cookie. This is the classic cookie, you know… the one cookie that I would “have” to make. “Sugar Cookie”… get it? I love her.

Jewel Sparkles. The little princess of the collection. Always dressy, always graceful. A little bossy, but that’s ok because she’s a princess.

And here are the three cookies of this set. One thing I should mention is that I don’t own a cookie cutter for the dolls. I have to cut the cookie dough for each one of cookies. It is a very time consuming process, but I have fun.

I hope to have the opportunity again to create some different Lalaloopsy cookies again. I have been wanting to create one of the boys such as Patch Treasurechest or Ace Fender Bender. I think I see them in a near future…

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!!

There is this very good friend of mine, Lorena. One of those friends… that you really can’t live without.

It is really funny, but Lorena and I are from the same home town of Juarez, MX and lived very close to each other. We also went to the same high school and college. We even ended up working for the same company in Des Moines after graduating from UTEP. You know what the funny thing was? We never knew each other until we were here in Iowa!

The next treat is for Lorena’s daughter, Mariana. She just turned 5 years old and her birthday party was this past Saturday.

This is definitely the quickest (not the easiest) set of cookies I have ever done. I prepared the dough in the morning, baked them in the afternoon and started decorating them in the evening. I never do this for many reasons, but I had to because I couldn’t say no to my dear friend.

It was a long night for me.  I also had to wake up really early in the morning to finish the face details. Thanks goodness for my music.

As a cookie decorator, one of the hardest things to do is EYES. I fear them and they are my nemesis. The eyes is one of those details that can be the big difference between a cookie that makes you say WOW or YIKES!

So here I go…

I had to make the cookies very “simple” and I wish I would have had more time to add more details (or be more careful with them). With more time, I would have made Patrick’s body into a star and add legs to Spongebob. I wish I could have worked on a pineapple also.

I made Patrick the silly starfish.

 Spongebob Square Pants obviously.

I also made a few flowers and presentation cookies (the Happy Birthday cookies).

It was a fun set of cookies to make and I loved how colorful they were.

I wish I would have taken a picture of Lorena’s party table. She really did a great job with all the Spongebob decorations.

Happy Birthday Mariana!
