It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post. I’ve been so busy actually making cookies (and working) to be able to post about making cookies. I’m trying to catch up. I have a couple batches to post about, but I wanted to start with this one. This order was just picked up yesterday for a bridal shower this weekend. It was an order I received after making the bridesmaids cookies that I posted in January. Very similar order, but different colors.
Since these were cookies that I have done before, I feel like I’m getting a little better at them. People have asked me if I get bored making the same types of cookies for multiple orders – definitely not. I feel like each time I make a certain shape/style of cookie, I improve it in some way. I learn from the time before. I either find a more efficient way to do it, or find ways to make it look just a little bit better. So I like getting the practice. Plus I’m always trying new things with design. Keeps it fun!
I hope you all have a great weekend! I will be posting more very soon 🙂
Happy Valentine’s Day to all my loves out there! I hope everyone is enjoying their day. Sadly, I didn’t get to make a ton of cookies for the holiday this year. I had a minor health issue that held me up earlier in the week, so my time was limited. Snowmageddon here in Raleigh didn’t help either! Here are some pics of what I was able to get done last night. It is for an order for my good friend, Addie. She wanted to give them as a gift to her new fiancé, Todd 🙂
Thanks all for stopping by. I hope you all enjoy the weekend.
I know I posted birthday cookies recently – but it sparked some interest, and I was able to get a little more practice making some last week. My friend, Melissa, ordered some from me – so I was all for trying them out again. This time I added in some party hats too. I decided to change it up a bit with the colors. I also changed the order that I was icing the parts of the cake with. With the first batch, I did the cake icing first, thinking it would easiest with the sprinkles. This time, I frosted the two layers of cake, let those dry for a 1-2 hours, then I added the icing layers between and added the sprinkles. Personally, I think these came out better. It actually looks like icing dripping down the side of the cakes. What do you think?
Did I mention how much I’m loving these pans?
I’m getting excited to start all the Valentine’s Day cookies! They are up next! I hope everyone is having a great week!
I may not be a huge football fan, but Super Bowl Sunday is great for so many other reasons. One of which is… the food! Appetizers and desserts – my favorites! I decided to whip up some football cookies for the occasion and I even threw in a new recipe I just tried for the first time last week. Salted caramel chocolate chip cookies. What?! I know. Yes, they’re amazing. Check out the recipe. Very easy to make. Little tip – do not over-bake. They may seem a little soft at 10 minutes, but they’ll be fine after they sit on the pan for a couple minutes out of the oven.
I’d also like to point out that, as you can, I finally got some new pans! Williams Sonoma GoldTouch® Nonstick Cookie Sheets! I love them. They were a Christmas gift and they’ve made a big difference in my baking – everything cooks so evenly now. Nothing sticks to them. And they cool down so quickly. Highly recommend.
I hope everyone has a great Super Bowl Sunday! I can’t say that I care who wins, but I will be watching. And eating 🙂
