I have reached over 500 "likes" on my Facebook page all due to the sharing of one of my photos from a popular cookie decorator, Yankee Girl Yummies. Just from her sharing my picture, I've received over 100 new "likes" in a span of a few days. I'm thrilled, to say the least :-) I mentioned on my Facebook page that I was going to do a giveaway when I reached 500 and it really snuck up on me. I'm gathering the goodies now, so stay tuned if you are interested!
Anyway....enough chit-chat. Here are the things I've done since my last post.
|Fruit cookies. I asked my Facebook friends what my next set should be and one of my good friends suggested these. I made them and sent them to her. I think this is the most frosting colors I've ever used!|
|Fourth of July cookies. I've improved A LOT since my last year set. I think my favorites are the Statue of Liberty ones :-)|
|My husband's partner at work just had a baby boy and their theme for him was nautical....so I made nautical baby cookies. These were very much loved by the new parents!|
|I got some baking themed cookie cutters from Piping Mad Prints that I wanted to use because of their adorableness. I made these just for the fun of it.|
|These are my claim to fame now. This is the picture that Yankee Girl Yummies shared on her Facebook page (she has over 8,000 followers!). I made these for Shark Week. Though I do not watch Shark Week, it was an excuse to make shark cookies. I got these cookie cutters custom made by the Creative Cookier. I did the beach scene after the Sweet Ambs tutorial and added a royal icing transfer fin to the water. These cookies got a lot of attention through the cookie community. I think they're my favorite thus far.|
|I made these for the fun of it (those are sometimes the best ones!). I got the Starbucks stencil from Stencils by Gudbytes (on Facebook) and wanted to put it to good use. All of the cookie cutters used for this set (except the white coffee cup w/coffee in it) came from Piping Mad Prints.|
|This. Cake. Was. Amazing!!! It is a vanilla cake with fresh strawberry buttercream. I got the recipe from Spoonful of Flavor blog. This whole cake was consumed, there was no extra :-)|
