Tyler’s Dirty 30

My friend (and one of the sweetest guys I know), Tyler, turns 30 this week. I was fortunate enough to celebrate with him, his beautiful wife Rachel, and a bunch of his friends in Asheville, NC over this past weekend. I have been dying to visit Asheville since I moved to North Carolina! What a great reason to finally go.

Rachel asked if I could make some cookies for the weekend, and of course I was happy to. Considering what I knew what we would be partaking in most of the weekend, here is what I came up with and the process from the beginning of the design to the finished product:

The cookies were a big hit 🙂  I’ve also gotten several orders in the past week, so look out for some more posts. I have a unique order I did around Christmas that I need to dig up the pictures for as well. Better late than never right?

I know it’s been several months since my last post – sorry about that. I bought my first home last September and I’ve been a little busy furnishing/decorating/painting – so so so many DIY projects. LOVING it! I may post some stuff on here about them just because I’ve become slightly obsessed.

Paddy O’Beers Grand Opening

If you like craft beer, fun times and great people – you all need to go downtown Raleigh and visit Paddy O’Beers on Fayetteville St.  They had their grand opening this weekend, so I got to try out some new cookies I’ve never done before.  I ordered beer mug and beer bottle cookie cutters last week.  The shamrock was already part of my collection.  I’m always excited to try out new shapes/designs, but there’s always a risk that they won’t turn out at all how I envision them.  Luckily, these came out just how I wanted them!

The beer bottles are an homage to my favorite beer, Trappistes Rochefort 10.  If you haven’t had it before, you’re missing out.  Of course, I couldn’t make an exact replica, I’m not THAT good, but I had to at least get the blue 10 in there!

Go visit the crew at Paddy O’Beers.  Have a Rochefort 10 – you won’t regret it!

I’ve got a lot of Thanksgiving cookies to make over these next few days, but if you have any ideas of anything to make between then and Christmas, please send them my way!
