Super Twins

Another set of twins is turning 5…such a fun age! I swear kids are excited about everything at this age. This particular adorable boy and girl are lucky enough to have Mom throwing them a Super Mario Bros themed party. How cool is that!! I remember going over to my next door neighbors house growing up and us sitting in her basement playing this (and many other) video games on her Nintendo. Totally get why it’s still a beloved game for tykes these days…however I bet the graphics are much much better ;)

Super Cool Mom wanted a Mario cookie and a Princess Peach cookie for the little ones to take home with them as thank you’s. She sent these images along and below is my process for trying to replicate.

  

First night was spent outlining these little guys. Took less time thanI thought thanks to my trusty Kopykake Projector…

Second night I started filling…

Third night I finished filling and added the finishing details!

Voila!!

It’s a Mans World

And based on the men I know, their world would involve fire somehow. I don’t know what it is, but men seem to like fire.

A recent order came in requesting favors for a husband’s 40th birthday party. There was no “theme” per say but she did say she was going to have a few things printed up with “40 & Hot”. My thought process went from Man…Hot…Fire.  Flames!  And so I designed these 40’s that are on fire.  Super fun to make and in my opinion a super cool and unique theme for such a milestone birthday.

Dew my inspiration from this cool car flame

Wanted it to be a fuller flame around the 40 so I drew it up using a Bic marker

Then went to town :) Happy Birthday Curt :)

Oh and I have to thank Pinterest for this order. Small world it is…the super nice woman who placed this order lives in Bellingham, Washington…where I WENT TO COLLEGE!!! I couldn’t believe it. Testament that social media does in fact work :)

Wedding of the Century

This past week, I flew down to Florida for my 82 year old Grandma’s wedding. Yes…my Grandma and yes she was an 82 year old bride. And what a happy bride she was :) I couldn’t help but giggle at how giddy she was! I kept telling her she was acting like a 25 year old…but in truth…this is how young her heart is :) It was quite the event too. She kept telling people it was going to be the wedding of the century and believe it or not there were more people at her wedding than mine! Fabulous!

Best part of the weekend…seeing how happy she was. Her grins were infectious.

Funniest part of the weekend…we went to buy her shoes the morning of the wedding. She tells the cute 20 something boy ringing us up that she was getting married:

Grandma: I’m getting married today.

Sales Clerk: (looks at me questioningly) Really?

Me: Yep, this afternoon.

Sales Clerk: That’s great!

Grandma: And he’s younger than me (grins a little grin and winks at him)

Sales Clerk: HAHA Really?

Grandma: Oh yes. That’s right…I’m a cougar

Sales Clerk: (cracking up hysterically) You made my day!

Me: How about a discount on those shoes then??

Sales Clerk: You got it!

So we all scored…but only one of us wound up married that afternoon.

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Bailey!

Let the party begin!

They did wind up with frosting on both of their noses by the way :)

Decided to send a little something sweet to the new bride and groom as they get settled together. They have matching rings that say “LOVE FOREVER”. To a lifetime of happiness Grandma! Love you so much!!

All Things Boy – Part III

When I first started making cookies, I would see everything as a cookie. I wondered “Can I do that in a cookie?” or wondered if I had the ability to decorate something so fabulous “Can I really do that??” Oddly enough, the characters from the movie Cars was one of those. Last week I had the opportunity to give it a try and push my skills out of their comfort zone. I am happy happy happy that I did! I love how they turned out (everything except for the cratering in the windows…those damn craters show up even when you do everything and I mean everything to prevent them!! grrrr).

Happy Birthday Mason…your Grandma loves you tons (proof as she hand carries these cookies on a plane from Connecticut to Utah)!!

All Things Boy – Part II

I’m going out on a limb here since I have two girls and am an only child so I have very limited exposure to little boy birthday parties, but when I think of boy party themes I definitely think of sports. Don’t get me wrong, many many girls are into sports just as much as boys are, but little boys live for kicking, hitting and throwing things ;)

So when an order came in last weed for soccer balls I was super excited!! The favors are for twin boys who were turning 5 and having a soccer themed birthday party at an indoor soccer arena. I hope these cookies were a huge “kick” ;)

All Things Boy – Part I

Not too long ago, before my summer vacation, I was lucky enough to have a couple weeks of girlie cookie orders. Now…the boy orders are flying in! Love it!

My daughter has a set of Legos. It’s a farm scene. She loves it. This farm set is my first experience with legos. No idea why, but I never had them as a kid. So when an order came in for a lego head and a ninjago I was like “whose-a-go what?” Apparently, ninjas have invaded legoville :) There are photos of these cool dudes everywhere online! Some might say suspicious, others would say mysterious…I say hooded coolness!

Happy Birthday Hunter!

Hunter’s brother is also having a birthday party and picked a super cool theme. His theme brings back happy memories of my childhood :) I grew up watching Yogi bear and Boo Boo. Yogi always so silly…so funny…so happy…so hungry!

Happy Birthday Caden!
