A farewell to summer

With Fall temperatures slowly arriving, I think these might just be my last summery cookies of the season...

I was soo excited to finally get my hands on this set of cookie cutters from Wilton.  Ice cream cone cookies are always a hit (especially in my house)...but the soft serve version....even better!!!  I could not find this set anywhere for quite some time....and even contacted Wilton to discover they had no more in stock.... but a few weeks back... I got an email letting me know they were in stock!  I ordered immediately and got to work!

Hope I don't have to wait till next summer to try the sundae cutter from this set!

Favorite Requests

I pretty much love ALL kinds of cookies for all kinds of occasions...but I must admit...the requests I get for baby cookies are probably what I look forward to most.  Who doesn't love those tiny little onesies, cute little prams, and chubby little bears that go along with babies?  

These onesies were a very simple baby design that I found here.  If you have not seen Katie's'd better be sitting down the first time you check out her blog.... simply beautiful. simply precise. simply perfect.

I loved the baby pastel colors of these cookies....but still need some work on the teddy bear on the onesie....had a few little pit hole issues....still trying to resolve!

Thanks, Katie, for sharing your tremendous talent.

A few of my cookie idols have been cookie creating with ideas they have seen on Pinterest.  Since I consider myself a Pinterest addict.... I figured I had to jump on the bandwagon and join the fun.  Inspired by this amazing set of cookies... I created some vintage lace cookies.....  These are truly an get to use a paint brush and all!  But have to have patience to let the petals dry between layers....:)

If you haven't jumped on the Pinterest must!!!

Character Cookies

Sometimes even the simplest looking cookie can be deceiving.  I've always wanted to make these infamous cookies....and thought because of their few colors and simple features they would be easy peasy.....not so much...

Turns out that it is really important to get the eyes in just the right spot....and to space those cute little whiskers in just the right way!

I used these suggestions to help me as guides when I made my kitties!  Thanks, Callye, for the tip!

I've been wanting to make these for quite some time....but have been a bit nervous about it....

So much was kinda scary.....I think I still need some practice on the wet on wet technique when 3 colors are involved (still have some bleeding issues on the eyes of McQueen), but the ultimate judge (my 3 year old, J) didn't seem to notice one bit!  He LOVED these cookies!

We made some for a friend of ours who is also a CARS fanatic....and a very cute one, I might add!  He just celebrated his third birthday.... and I'm quite sure these cookies can't even be HALF as sweet as he is.  Cutest.little.boy.ever!  Hope you enjoyed your day Mr. W!!!!

I am behind on my cookie little tikes have felt  icky the last few once they are on the mend... I can hopefully post some new cookie pics!
