Grumpy Cat Birthday Cookies

Did you know that January 6th is the most depressing day of the year? Good.

Not really, but I was trying to get in grumpy cat mode :)  I know I have been suffering from some post-holidays funk, and talking to my friends, they have as well.  Because of this, I thought it was the perfect time to post my grumpy cat birthday cookies, because misery does love company, right?! 

In case you have been living under a rock, Grumpy Cat's popularity has been on the rise since the end of 2012, and she even has her own facebook page with more likes than I could dream of having.  You'll find her "memes" all over the internet, and you can buy your very own Grumpy Cat merchandise.  But this isn't a paid endorsement for Grumpy Cat, so I'll move on to the cookies!

Hope you enjoyed the cookies and they could help you shake the post-holiday blues!

Happy Birthday, Benjamin!: Train Cookies

My nephew Benjamin turned 1 back in November, but it was right before Thanksgiving and I didn't want his birthday cookies to get lost in the holiday cookie mix! 

Benjamin had a train theme for his party.  His mom, and my wonderful sister-in-law, Mandy chose to use primary colors for the theme.  She told me to have fun and make whatever I wanted.  I LOVE orders like these were I can stretch myself creatively and try to come up with something original and new that I've never done before. 

The end result was some of my favorite cookies that I have made in awhile!  I love the brightness of the color pallete and just how "clean" this set looks.  And it that didn't seal the deal of me loving this set, this picture below did!
It was an honor to be a part of your first birthday, Benjamin!  Your Aunt Malu loves you so much!

Let It Snow Cookies

In honor of the very cold weather Texas is experiencing this week, it only seemed appropriate to share these snowflake cookies.  Some of you may remember I hosted my first giveaway back in August and Melinda was one of the lucky winners.  Melinda simply asked for some winter-themed cookies and suggested maybe doing snowflakes. 

While we aren't going to get any snow here, a girl can dream.
