Sugar Cookies for Boy Birthday Party

I had someone ask me to do sugar cookies for their son’s 7th birthday.  Our conversation started off by her asking “You can do anything as a cookie, right?”  I was a little hesitant to answer that question, so I gave my standard answer of “I will do the best I can”.  She said her son was really into Beyblades.  I had never heard of them and actually what I heard the first time

Choose The Right Sugar Cookie


I made some cookies for my niece’s baptism (well, actually I think she is really my great-niece).  She turned 8 and was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  The cookie is a shield with the letters CTR, which stands for Choose the Right.  Of course, I had to make them in her favorite colors – pink and purple. CTR Sugar Cookies I decided to try some with sugar to give

Baby Shower Sugar Cookies


I was asked to do cookies for a baby shower.  Because the invitations to the baby shower were turtles, we decided to do turtle cookies. Invitation and Sugar Cookie It was fun trying to match the colors – I must admit that one of my weaknesses is mixing colors – experimenting with combining colors to create just the perfect color.  But I guess that will come with practice.   I would love to hear any suggestions or great

Sugar Cookie Wedding Bouquet

I went and saw Hairspray on stage a few weeks ago and there is a song that now haunts me.   Now whenever I hear anything about a wedding,  for some reason I hear the song “I Can Hear the Bells”….. Yes, I’m singing it in my head right now.  I guess because I think of wedding bells when I think of weddings, which leads me into the chorus “I can hear the bells…..” I

Cupcakes and Balloons

Well, it’s been a while since I posted last – a lot of things have happened and one of those things included someone’s birthday.  My sister was visiting and decided to take a cookie bouquet back for her daughter that was having her 35th birthday.  We decided on cupcakes and balloons.  Because she was flying I made the cookies, packaged them up for her and she took them home and assembled the bouquet herself.  

Firecrackers, Stars and Sugar Cookies

It’s almost the 4th of July, so I couldn’t resist putting together a sugar cookie bouquet to celebrate. I also decided to do some individual cookies that could be eaten right away.  And believe me, they didn’t last the night.

M I C K E Y…why? To Cheer Her Up


My friend took her family to Disneyland for their family vacation.  While there her daughter ended up in the hospital and spent the next week enjoying their vacation from a hospital bed.  I don’t even think Mickey visited her in the hospital.  I’m very happy to report she’s doing just fine.  Her souvenir was an incision on her knee with over a dozen staples holding it all together. So, to cheer her

Sugar Cookie Baby

This sugar cookie bouquet was made for a friend of mine that just adopted a baby boy.  This was used as the center piece for her baby shower.  Months ago I had purchased a piece of scrapbook paper that I really liked.  I bought it and was so excited to create cookies from it, but life just kept getting in the way.  I finally had a reason to make the cookies so I jumped at

Soccer Cookie Bouquet


This is a bouquet that was made for a teenage girl who plays – well, lets see if you can guess…..  It was fun to do the soccer balls.  To make the bouquet very personal, I added the young woman’s name to the shoe. Now, for something completely different and delicious — miniature flower sugar cookies. These flowers are truly bite size.

Sugar Cookies for Charity

I was asked to prepare two baskets of six cookies for a charity auction.  Ah, did you think Charity was a person?  The auction was to raise money for a science and math camp for 7th grade girls.  They requested that I make a cookie with their logo on it and a cookie with the name of the camp. The auction included a fashion show and the theme of the fashion show was The Desert
