Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Birthday Cookies

I'm going to keep it short and sweet this go 'round and let the pictures speak for themselves!  I had so much fun making these Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cookies for Caleb's 1st birthday.  I loved how they turned out, plus they were a different interpretation than what I had seen done in the past.

Happy 1st Birthday, Caleb!

Cat Birthday Set

I will start off by saying these are the most random cookies I have done to date, but if I'm being honest, I love them!

Haley wanted to order cookies for one of her best friends Katie's 17th birthday.  She didn't really care what they looked like, but she wanted them to be bright, colorful and include cats, Katie's favorite animal.  I also had to include solid black houses.  I wasn't given an explanation, but I am assuming some sort of inside joke.

When I was trying to figure out what I should do, I remembered the bunny silhouette cookie from my Easter Egg cookies and thought, "Why not do the same but with a cat?"  Also, I know this will instantly age me, but I loved Lisa Frank when I was younger and this set seemed reminiscent of that... maybe that's why I ended up liking it so much!

 I hope you had a purr-fect 17th birthday, Katie (beyond cheesy I know, but I couldn't resist)!

Aggie Birthday Cookies

In honor of the big game this week (Texas A&M vs. Alabama in case you had no idea what I'm talking about), I felt it was only appropriate to post some Aggie related cookies.  These cookies were made for Trey from his sister as he was turning the big 2-1!

We are so excited that we get to go to the game with week to root on the Aggies! Thanks and Gig 'em!

Marching Band Cookies

Back to school in Texas also means the start of a sacred event: Friday Night Lights and College Football Saturday! Now to a lot of people that might just conjure up images of football players and the game, but I can't be the only one that looks forward to the half-time performances by the marching bands!

In fact, I know I'm not! Lindsey's husband is a marching band director and she always gets him something special to kick-off the start of a new season.  How sweet is that?  I initially came up with football ideas, but then decided that I wanted to do something to really highlight the marching band, and not just focus on the football aspect.  Lindsey and I discussed it and decided that marching band hats and music notes would be perfect!

I used "brush embroidery" on the feather of the hats to really give it texture and look more realistic.

Thank you for ordering, Lindsey!  It was so fun to create these cookies for you and your husband!
