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.

Halloween Cookies – 2014

Posted on January 8th, 2015 in Cookies

How do I post Halloween work after Christmas work? I have three kids and a husband that acts like another one (sorry hubby).

I know it’s late, my poor blog suffers all the time. Nevertheless, I still want you to see this Halloween cookie collection (2014). So here it is.

 

Hello October!!!

hola octubre IMG_6960

Halloween is not Halloween without candy corn. Unlike other times where I have plain lines between the colors, this time I decided to give them a little bit of realistic character and distress the colors right where each color is changing. Can you see it? Also, last year I got the colors mixed up. This year I took the time (a minute to be honest) and googled real candy corn. The top color is white, middle orange and bottom yellow.

Oh, but this year I gave them customs to make them look spooky (or cute). Are you scared now? Boo…

I love these guys. I got this cookie cutter at my local grocery store and I honestly didn’t know what to do with it. It is such a huge head and such a tiny body. Some of them are cute… some scare and some… creepy!!

I’m happy… I was happy with them. Most of the cookies went to my church’s Octoberfest event, their cakewalk. Some other cookies were placed in a big basket and taken to the schools office (St. Francis of Assisi). Many thanks to the school’s staff for all their work. They are all wonderful people.

Looking forward to next’s Halloween cookies. I better start thinking about it! Time goes by so fast….

Christmas Cookies – 2014

Happy New Year!!!

Yeah, I know you might be tired of hearing that by now. I want to wish you a very prosperous.

No words (for now), just pictures. Pretty ones, I hope.  Enjoy!

Well, like I tend to say… better late than never.

Those were my Christmas sugar cookies of 2014. I own a large number (very large number) of Christmas cookie cutters and it was very difficult to decide what to do this year. I certainly miss working on  my cookie houses and Santa Claus designs, but I was so happy to finally incorporate baby Jesus into one design. After all, Christmas would be without him.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas (or Holiday) and I truly wish you a very happy and healthy New Year.

Although I don’t believe in making New Year’s resolutions (long story that I don’t have time to write about), I really hope I can change the fact that I ‘neglect’ my blog. I hope this year I can show you more of my work, with more details and more… more of everything.

Let the fun for this New Year start…. Let the New Year’s baking of more Sweet Treats begin.

Valentine’s Day Sweet Treats

Posted on April 2nd, 2014 in Cookies

I had the opportunity to bake again for Kindermisik. This time, the treats were for a piano musical concert. The theme was Valentines Day and because it was piano performance, I wanted to incorporate musical items, especially a piano.

Here’s a quick look at the cookies as I arranged them in a tray.

Musical notes displayed on large cookie hearts or fancy shaped cookies. A variety of musical and love messages are part of this design.

I made this heart cookie with wings design last year and really liked the way they can be decorated. You can see them here.  This year I decided to use an delicate and very elegant technique called “brush embroidery”  on the wings.

Here are a few other assorted heart shaped cookies in different sizes, shapes and colors.

Here you see the pianos.  I have to admit that I had a few issues with them this year and they were not as clean and/or straight as I wanted them to be, but I still liked them. I decided to add a pink key to them as well as hearts and love words.

The next heart shaped cookie is covered with a quilting technique.  A piped border finishes the edges and gives them a special touch to them. This design doesn’t need much more details as it is simple and elegant just as it is.

A final look of the cookies in their platter. Although red, pink and white where the main Valentine’s Day colors, I love how there’s a few shades of bright yellow and purple in the set.  The touch of black was added for the musical cookies and it stands out beautifully.

Thanks for visiting my site again. I hope you like the Valentines Day cookies for 2014.

Fall Season Cookies – 2013

Posted on November 8th, 2013 in Cookies

Probably my favorite season of the year is Fall. The colors. The smells. The fresh air.

Here are some cookies to start my 2013 Fall Season cookie collection.

I hope everybody had a safe and happy Halloween. Here are some of the cookies I baked and decorated for this Halloween celebration.

I have to make spiders. These cute yet frightful spiders have very detailed legs. If you look closely, I pipped three sets of leg extension for each one of the legs. Time consuming, yes, but I liked the way they turned out. When my daughter saw them she said “Yucky!”. She is only two….

I made different versions of the ghosts. The same mold, but each one a little bit unique. This year, I focused on their facial expressions. Some happy, some scared and some of them mean.

Pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins. I’d better decorate some Halloween sugar cookies every year or as might as well not bake al all. So here we go.

You’ll see the traditional pumpkins with the bright green steams. Then we have many more pumpkins featuring assorted faces to them.

Minnie IMG_4226 1

A little about the Minnie Mouse Halloween cookie. I bake some of those cookies with a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter that I have not really knowing what I would do with it. My youngest daughter absolutely loves Mickey, so I just thought I would make them for her.  As I started decorating them, I kept hating their look more and more… but I kept going. I thought the eyes were so ugly and the smiles all crocked. They just didn’t look good at all. Then at the very last minute I decided to make a pumpkin with their ears using black icing to stand out. Well… all I have to say is that this Minnie Mouse cookie is the most seen cookie in my flickr account. Who knew!!!

A final look of the assorted Halloween cookies for 2013. I made quite a few candy Halloween cookies, but unfortunately I didn’t take a picture of them. You can see at least one of them down below.

See you later with more Halloween cookies!!
