Live Love Laugh

I am so excited about this weeks order. A woman found my business card at the local YMCA and called to inquire about cookie favors for her 40th birthday party. “But Of Course!” was my response :) She sent along a picture of her invitation and I fell in love with the colors instantly!

Amazing colors right! She wanted 3 dozen vanilla and 3 dozen chocolate. I couldn’t wait to recreate the design…fun fun fun!

First step after baking all those cookies was to flood the back ground.

The next step involved brainstorming how to get the 40’s onto the cookie. In the past I have traced printouts using edible markers and piped over that, but this time around I wanted to try a new technique. I recently saw a post by the amazingly talented Sweet Sugar Belle where she used a push pin to poke a center outline on a flooded cookie. I definitely thought this would work well for the size of cookie and printout, so instead of poking the center I used a toothpick and poked the corners of a 40 template, connecting the dots afterwards with icing.

Not only is this woman celebrating 40 years of life, she’s also celebrating her 1 year anniversary since completing her cancer treatments. YEAH!!! So literally, she’s celebrating LIFE! She asked to have the words Live, Love and Laugh on the cookie and I thought it was incredibly fitting. In fact, it’s my new favorite quote :)

And of course, a favor isn’t complete without an adorable tag in coordinating colors. Happy Birthday Virginia!!!

A Week Of Spiders, Stars and Flowers

It has been a LONG week! It started with me pulling my back last Sunday putting my daughter into her car seat on our way to the grocery store. Unfortunately, the “I’ve got to get this stuff done” part of me kicked in and off I trekked to Stop & Shop. Tsk Tsk Tsk  Needless to say, in mid-turn to weigh my mangos, my back completely went out and I was lucky to get out of the store without flopping to the floor. The past few days have been rough, but my amazing husband and family came to the rescue taking care of the house and kids while I rested. Happy to say my back is sore but no longer painful so I’m soooo happy!!!

Amidst the resting of my back, I managed to ice my heart out every night and get all our orders out. Super happy how they all turned out too :)
