Retiring? Have a Sugar Cookie!


After 31 years, one of the attorneys where I work retired.  A reception was held in his honor and I was asked to make a sugar cookie retirement bouquet for him.  It was fun to try to create something to not only represent his retirement, but to make it personal to him. I decided to make one of the cookies like the invitation used to announce his retirement:     The other cookies represent retirement… the

Sugar Cookie Dancing

This week is teacher appreciation week.  In honor of that I was asked to make a sugar cookie bouquet for a dance teacher.  Last time I made a bouquet for a dancer I wanted to try putting dance silhouettes on the cookie, but I just didn’t have time to figure out how to do it.  Well, this weekend I decided to take the plunge and try some different techniques. I printed off several silhouettes 

Flowers or Sugar Cookie Bouquet?


If you were a teenage girl and just performed in a dance competition, which would you rather get at the end of your performance – a sugar cookie bouquet that you could eat or flowers that you will eventually have to throw out?  Personally, I would go for the sugar cookies! A friend of mine asked me to do  a sugar cookie bouquet for her granddaughter who was performing in a dance competition.  I thought it

Sugar Cookie Madness

Well, March Madness might be over but I just now got into basketball – sugar cookie basketball.  Honestly, I’m surprised I even know about March Madness since I am not a basketball fan.  In fact, when I was in high school my father and mother would drag me to the college basketball games and I would actually take my homework and do it at the game.

Happy Easter


Time to decorate the eggs!    I prepared a basket of 2 dozen sugar cookies for easter – in each basket I included 1 dozen cookies of 6 flowers and 6 easter eggs each.       And for the smaller appetites, I prepared some bite size Easter cookies: Not everything was coming up Easter this week.  I was asked to prepare a thank you bouquet for a man.  We decided to go with a sports theme – this is what I came up with:

Cookies and Documentaries


A few weeks ago I was asked to do a cookie bouquet for Docutah – a wonderful international documentary film festival here in Southern Utah.  I was excited about being asked and even more excited about figuring out how to get their logo on the cookies.  Here is the logo: I knew I couldn’t freehand this logo, so I decided to try a stencil, which meant I would have to make one.  How does one

Spring Bouquet


I’ve never been very good with plants.  I love them and every spring I go buy flowers with the intention of turning my patio into a floral paradise.  I dream of sitting on my patio with a cool breeze blowing and the sweet aroma of flowers.  But in reality, the plants usually die before they ever make their way into the ground.  Well, I finally found a way of making that dream come true –

It’s a Sugar Cookie Spring

A friend of mine recently asked me to do some sugar cookies for a meeting she was attending.  She wanted to surprise everyone with a treat – so we decided to go with a spring theme.  I was excited because a few days earlier I had been admiring the butterfly sugar cookies on sweetopia.com.  Now, it was my turn to turn plain sugar cookies, into beautiful butterflies.  I have to admit that as of right

I Heart Sugar Cookies


Valentine’s Day may be over, but you can give a heart sugar cookie anytime.   I had fun trying a different technique of decorating – stencils! Pink Sugar Cookie Hearts I was thrilled when I found these stencils made specifically for heart shaped sugar cookies.  The stencil allows for you to get a lot of beautiful detail that is hard to do with just a bag of frosting and a decorating tip.  Check out these heart
