Gender Reveal Cookies: Baby Silhouette Cookies

We have some big news in the Supak household!  I am so excited to announce that I am pregnant and due this September! 

Since I've started up this cookie venture, it seems like every major milestone that happens in our life now has to be celebrated with cookies!  And finding out the gender of our precious baby was no exception. 

Ever since I saw this idea on Sweet Sugarbelle's blog, I knew I would want to do it when it came time for us to have another baby.  I was going to show you the step-by-step process to the cookies, but she created such a wonderful tutorial, I thought, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"  If you are interested, you can see the tutorial here.

Looking at these cookies, you wouldn't know that hidden inside is either pink or blue dough to reveal the gender.  Isn't that just a genius idea?!  The exterior design is my original idea (I've become a bit obsessed with silhouette cookies as you can see here and here), and I actually hand-painted the cookies as well.  Not because I was going for a certain effect, but honestly I was being lazy and didn't want to make any black icing.

We are thrilled to announce that Baby Supak is a .... 


Thanks for being a part of this exciting journey with me.  I can't wait to meet our precious baby this fall!

Fun Easter Cookies for Kids

Last Easter was some of my first cookies I ever made.  I was so excited about my new-found hobby and did about 6 different designs.  When all was said and done, I had two ideas that I completely forgot to share! 

My family has the tradition of going to our lake house for Easter and I wanted to have some cookies that my sister's kids would enjoy.  I found some cookie "bunny masks" on Munchkin Munchies and loved the idea, and from these pictures and think the kids did too!

The second cookies I did was just simple white eggs.  Then, I put watered down food coloring and food markers for the kiddos to color and paint the eggs.

The kids had so much fun and it was so easy that even the most novice decorator could recreate these for their family.  Have a happy Easter!
