Quinceañera Cookies: 50's Rock and Roll Diner Cookies

Facebook is a wonderful thing!  Yes, it can be a nasty vice that ends up sucking away hours of your day without you even realizing it, but it is thanks to Facebook that I had the opportunity to make these fun 50's Rock and Roll Diner cookies.

Ansonya Burke of Principles in Action Event & Wedding Design saw the Air Force Cookies I made for memorial day when I shared them on Sweet Sugarbelle's page on Facebook.  Principles in Action specializes in incredible Sweets Buffets- seriously, you need to check out her page, they are not only beautiful, but they look delicious! I was so excited and honored when she wanted to include my cookies in her Sweets Buffet for a 50's themed Quinceañera.  I was given an inspiration board and told to use my artistic license to create the cookies in a blue, pink, white and silver palette - no black allowed!  

While experimenting with what designs to do and what colors to use, I made a Chevrolet Bel Air and jukebox.  Even though they didn't make the final cut, I wanted to share them with you!

The end the cookies we settled on were poodle skirts, oxford shoes, records, diner signs, and ice cream sundaes, and we went with a bolder color palette than the pink and blue used on the car and jukebox.


It was such a pleasure working with you, Ansonya and Principles in Action!  I look forward to continuing to build our working relationship!


  1. I like the Oxford shoes and the ice cream Sundaes the best of all of them, but of course they are all amazing!

  2. Thanks so much! I think the ice cream cones is probably my favorite as well!
