it still amazes me every time someone asks me to do cookies in a design i haven't yet tackled. i feel like i've been doing cookies forever, but happily it's still fun for me - especially when i'm challenged with something new.
like these, for instance - favors for a red egg and ginger party for a baby boy born in the year of the horse. google tells me that this is typically a celebration of a newborn's first month, which is something i'd not heard of before. and thank goodness for sweet sugarbelle, because without her step-by-step tutorials i'd be completely lost.
one of my oldest friends is a girl i first met back in fourth grade. and through the magic of facebook, we reconnected years ago and have stayed in touch since our last high school reunion. she's a manager at a local starbucks, and hit me up for some treats for a barista competition she was overseeing. these were really fun:
another friend recommended me to a friend of hers, who was looking for favors for her son's birthday party. the theme was paw patrol, so here's what she got:
bridal shower cookies are always, always fun for me to do.
and then the bean's cheer coach at school, who i love for many reasons, asked me to help out with cookies for her mom's milestone birthday.
i've got even more fun-sounding cookies in the pipeline over the next few weeks, and i can't wait to see how they turn out. wish me luck.
