My 14 year old son said I needed to add some "older" Halloween designs this year. I guess he didn't want the witch's hat and Frankenstein! So I found a picture I liked and sent it over to CopperGifts.com to make me a custom cutter. Well here is the final product and my son gave me the "thumbs up"...

This platter was for the recipient of the Autism Fundraiser Auction donation. Sometimes I find "simple" harder to do than a more detailed design LOL! But this gave me an opportunity to use my mini pacifier cutter and I love adding some minis in the center of a platter for those who don't want a whole cookie...

I love this scalloped rectangle cutter, I have used it for a backdrop for so many designs. My latest is "The Snake"....something about young boys and snakes! Hunter was having his party at a local nature center and requested a brown snake on his cookie. With all the humid, rainy weather we have been having in the Northeast, I decided to let the white base dry for 2 days and it worked wonderfully to prevent any bleeding from the brown and the green border.

Another new cutter designed with CopperGifts.com I am so in love with this cutter. I have so many drawings for it.....a clown, Santa and of course a double swirl combo. But for now since I am working on Halloween....a Jack-O-Lantern and Ghost...
I love working on new designs with CopperGifts.com, especially for Halloween. This is the first of several new cutters this season, the "Ugly Pumpkin". I have older children now, so requests are coming in for scarier Halloween cookies! I was looking for a new shape as well to get away from the traditional pumpkin and I think we found it! It seems you can draw a design until you think you have nailed it only to get down to the last one and realize it needed something more. I think the Black Sugar Pearls helped achieve the look I was going for...

These Erlenmeyer flasks are for a chemistry teacher. I came across this cutter in a Wilton Halloween 3-pk I ordered from Amazon along with several others. This is a great size for platter cookies or wrapped with another cookie or two as a favor.

This is my first time doing zebra stripes believe it or not! I don't know if it is because I am a Libra and I have a hard time becoming "unbalanced" with random designs LOL!. I started going across horizontally, but couldn't find "my groove"? So I finally went vertical and the stripes seem to fall in place. The bras were garnished with sugar pearls, just to add a little something more.

A firetruck favor for Andrew's 4th birthday party scheduled for Sunday August 29th. We all knew our area was a target for Hurricane Irene, but tried to keep good thoughts for Andrew. I decided to make some extra cookies with fire hydrants so Andrew would have some cookies to eat on his birthday. And yes sadly the party was cancelled as were a lot of activities due to the massage power outage in Connecticut and the East Coast. This is our first day with power back on and hoping Andrew's party is coming up soon : )
