Cookies for another Home Party

It has been the month for home parties. This platter was for an Initials Inc party. The handbags matched one of their designs and the hostess requested red heels to go with them!

Pirate Ship Favor

A pirate theme for young Austin turning 5. I thought I would try outlining in black first (I usually outline after the cookie is iced). I learned that the icing used for flooding needs to be a little thicker than the base I usually use, as I did notice some bleeding, but not too much. I think it work out well for  this design.

Baby Owl Onesies

I had done this design last year when someone contacted me saying my picture came up in a Google search. This is a great design for those parents-to-be who are waiting for their arrival to see if they have a boy or a girl. On this design, I always let my white base dry for 2 days before adding the chocolate brown which is little thicker than my base consistency. I just add a little more sugar to absorb some moisture to prevent bleeding. I did the same with the pastels so they wouldn't absorb any brown while drying.

Meet Wolfette

I love Halloween and especially love when I am invited to collaborate on new designs for CopperGifts.com! I had searched high and low and couldn't find a werewolf cutter that would make a great favor or gift cookie. Well I had made several styles, but I love the dress on this female werewolf!

Ambler Farm Day 2011

Our family is a big supporter of Ambler Farm our local town farm. Both of my boys are apprentices there. Ambler Day is their big annual fundraiser with fun for all ages. Here is my oldest Sam who is a mentor Apprentice this year riding around the morning before the festivities started:













Benjamin my youngest is enjoying his first season working on the farm. He was in charge of helping with the Apple Sling Shot a big favorite activity every year:














And then there is my honey doing tractor rides throughout the day. He had fun, but the exhaust trailing into the cab really got to him by the end of the day. But a good time was had by all:














And finally the cookies I designed for the bake sale were 2 new designs this year. First of all I decided to make a chocolate dough. While I love the taste, I use Ghiradhelli Cocoa (Yum) it is not as easy to roll as my usual sugar dough. First was a leaf cookie. Believe it or not I have never done a feathered border before. I am happy with the results and will definitely be using this design again:


















I wanted to do a Halloween design for the kids and I had this large 6-inch ghost that I thought would be fast and easy. But just doing eyes and a mouth looked too boring so I played around with the words "Ambler Farm" to see how I could make it fun and this spider seemed perfect!


















So a good time was had by all, and the fundraiser was a BIG success!
