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.

Alice in Lalaloopsyland

A fair skin Lalaloopsy doll with a big curiosity to know about everything.  She wears her long blond hair in pigtails and ties them with black ribbons. Although you don’t see it here, her pet is a little white bunny.

Sunny Side Up.

Sunny is a lovely full size doll that works at the farm taking care of her animals. A pretty fuchsia bow holds her adorable bright orange hair and uneven strands of curly hair. She is one cute tomboy that would make any girl fall in love with her.

Cinder Slippers

Yes! This adorable doll was inspired by the Cinderella story. Cinder is a fair skinned doll with soft pink cheeks. I love how she wears her blond hair up in a ponytail and uses a light pink bow. Her black eyes really stand out against her light and fair colors.

One last view of the three new dolls. My goal should be to make the full size body Lalaloopsy and/or their pets uh?

I think they are adorable! I am so glad I had the opportunity of working on three more dolls to add to my collection of Lalaloopsy sugar cookies. You can see more of them here and here.

Posted on March 8th, 2014 in Cookies

I have a pirate sugar cookie collection to show you.

The cookies celebrated a boy turning 4 years old. The cookies feature a little pirate wrap on top of the number four.

I also made a large crew of happy little buccaneers with fun and colorful wraps around their heads. After looking at them carefully, I think their eye patch could have been just a little bit larger.

buccaneers IMG_4394 1

Of course there are pirate ships matey. I used two different cutters and decorated them in many different ways.  The first pirate ship you see is made from a cookie cutter I ordered from Coppergifts. It was huge!!  I do like a big cookie because it gives me a nice big canvas to work with.

The second pirate ship has a very different shape and it is a little bit smaller.

This collection could not be complete with a very popular pirate hat. The hat features a skull and bones design and accented with traditional pirate colors.

I hope you enjoyed this Pirate/Buccaneer cookie collection. I had a lot of fun making them and I hope the birthday boy enjoyed them also.

Lalaloopsy Sugar Cookies

Posted on March 1st, 2014 in Cookies

I’m excited to bring you again the Lalaloopsy Dolls… in cookies.

I have made Lalaloopsy cookies several times now. You can check more cookies faces here  and some assorted cookies that I baked for my niece here.  This time I got the opportunity of making a new character, Dot Starlight.

Dot was my latest addition to this Lalaloopsy sugar cookie collection. She is cute!

Mittens Fluff ‘N’ Stuff.

Before you start asking questions (to yourself or me), allow me to clarify. Whenever I see Mittens, her skin seems a little bit darker than the usual Lalaloopsy. I made a mistake, I admit it. I ended up using Dot’s icing color to cover some of Mitten’s cookies. It was way too dark for her, but I realized that too late.  I still think she looks cute though, but if I have the opportunity to make them again I will make adjust the color.

Would you like to guess what is the hardest thing to do with these Lalaloopsy dolls cookies? The hair!!!I will explain later.

Anyway, did you like them? I always enjoy working on them.

Lego Birthday Treats for Noah – Part 1

Posted on February 22nd, 2014 in Cookies

For a couple of months last year I did nothing but Lego treats, mainly cakes. Now that the movie is out, Legos are much more popular. By the way, let me tell you that the movie is awesome!!

Last December, my wonderful son Noah turned 5 years old. Although he still loves Dinosaurs very much, this year he decided that he wanted a Lego birthday party… with a twist (the twist will come in Part 2).

Because I know that all the picture editing and details will take me forever to finish, I decided to break this into two posts. This first post will show the Lego cookies I made for him and his friends.

Lego Head. A very important piece.

I made several of them Lego Head cookies with different facial expressions.  Although I liked them all, I think that my absolute favorite was the one with the mustache, my mom’s idea.

I made a lot of cookies to hand out as “Thank You” gifts along with their little treat bag. I saved a lot more cookies to arrange a birthday platter for him. The platter included a couple of special cookies to display his Happy Birthday message. My cookie platter usually include that by the way.

Iowa Hawkeye Sugar Cookies

Posted on January 6th, 2014 in Cookies

Happy New Year!!!

 

I start a new year baking a popular cookie design in my Sports category, the Iowa Hawkeye cookie.

I have previously made this cookie (several times), but only in the distinctive yellow color. As I googled the logo once again to make sure that I have correct details and proportions, I noticed how there is also a black Hawkeye. How did I not pay attention to that before?

Well, that’s how the black Hawkeye cookie was born.

I was very happy with the look of the black Iowa Hawkeye. It was my husband’s favorite and my daughter really liked it too.

The cookies were offered as favors at a 50th birthday celebration. I received very nice and kind words from my customer as she mentioned how “beautiful” and “delicious” the cookies were.
