Congratulations to the Royal Couple

How many of you were up to watch the Royal Wedding? Well I just loved it! The dress, the ceremony, it does seem the Will and Kate, oops, Catherine now! Well I thought I would try to replicate their monogram on a wedding cake. I can see why some use printers and KopyKakes, but I went the old fashion way....

Owl Themed Baby Shower Favor

Inspiration for this design was from a piece of stationary. To prevent bleeding into the white, I let the base coat dry for 2 days. I outlined the owl and branch with icing that was a little thicker than the fill, which also helped prevent bleeding.  The Onesie Cutter is from CopperGifts.com and the packaging from Nashville Wraps.

Nail Salon Party Favor

You all know that I love to get my "girl" on being the mother of 2 boys and was very excited to do this favor for a Nail Salon birthday party. I love this scallop cutter from CopperGifts.com and I use it a lot. This time I used a nail polish cutter to make an imprint on the dough before baking to use as an outline for this design. Outlined and iced my bright white icing and let it dry overnight. Filled in the Americolor Electric Pink and then the Electric Green top and outlining for finishing touches and they were good to go!

Happy Tax Day

I am fortunate to have an accountant that also supports my business! She wanted 1040 forms for her office to celebrate the end of taxes. These cookies required a lot of writing and again I can not say enough about PME tips...they are really like writing with a pen. You can glide along with your writing as if you were using a marker. I rarely use food markers for writing as I prefer the look of the icing and the PME tips make it so much easier.!
















I found that Global Sugar Art has the largest selection of sizes and styles of PME Tips. I am looking to start replacing some of my Wilton star tips next. Karen's Cookies and Coppergifts also offer the PME tips best for writing and outlining.

Spring's Sip Shop & Share Event

Spring is always a great time to do some fairs. After a long, hard winter, I think most are ready for the colors of spring. I did quite well with my boxes of Peeps Bunnies and my Chick-In-Egg were a very popular favor this year.



















































All of my packaging comes from Nashville Wraps, the cello bags, clear lid boxes and organza ribbon. I just love their polka dots for Easter!

I Am So In Love with My New House!

I was a sponsor for a recent event and a centerpiece was made for my business. I gave her a cookie to go over the door and my designer took it from there! Isn't it beautiful?

Congrats to the Crimology Graduate!

This was such a fun order to create. My youngest loved the dead body outline, of course, but I really liked how the DNA turned out and I am glad not two fingerprints are alike!

Signature Cookie

This seems to be the weekend for fundraisers in town. One is our church's auction where I sponsored a table this year. Some kind soul is decorating a paper mache house for The Painted Cookie. I made a small scalloped cookie to go over the door of this house and thought it would also be a nice table favor. I also included a couple of each with gift certificates that I donated.  Best of all I got to use my new dish from Home Goods for the photo!
