Cookie burnout gets the best of us sometimes, but thankfully Thanksgiving and the lack of turkey cookies on my blog inspired me to whip up royal icing once again. While turkeys aren’t the cutest of creatures, but all things kawaii must be cute, so I used my trusty sprinkles, wide-set candy bead eyes, and the most […]
Magic & Sparkles! Unicorn Cookies
Posts on my blog these days are like unicorns… Sparkly, special, and rarely seen! I have no extraordinary excuse, simply the busyness of life with kidlets. While I’m absolutely still baking, I’m doing so more for school bake sales, friends and family, and less for the purpose of blogging. It’s a little bit sad, but also a […]
Elfin-style Santa Claus Cookies from a Football Cutter!
I want to put an exclamation point after all of my post titles, but it seems a bit much. I’m afraid you might think I just put it there reflexively. I mean, could a person possibly be that excited over each and every one of these cookies? Honestly, YES!!! Okay, I’m calming down now. As has been the […]
No Lion, You’re Hot Valentine!
First off, all lion puns are horrible. Google “lion puns”. You’ll agree. Alas, corny puns abound for Valentine’s Day and I’m not about to buck the trend, so… No Lion! You’re hot valentine! Really, this is just a silly excuse for me to make the lion cookie design I’ve been chewing on for months. Heart nose. Wee whiskers. Curly mane. Happy […]
Summer Snail Cookies: Because Slow Food is Sweet
This post has a secondary title, “Snail Cookies: Because Michelle is Slow as Molasses with the Posts Lately!” True enough! As I mentioned a few weeks back, my life’s been a whirlwind lately. We sold our sweet little house, moved into a rental house, and are now set to close on our next house around July 4th. […]
He or She? Hedge Your Bets! Gender Reveal Hedgehog Cookies
While decorating these sweet Baby Face Cookies for my friend Frances’ gender reveal party, I was daydreaming about cookies (I’m 100 percent serious) and another gender reveals cookie came to me… Hedgehogs… with hair-bows… and bow-ties! And then, the perfect pun: “Hedge your bets!” Well, not perfectly punny, but pretty close. Plus, it’s a little cheesy and […]
Wedding Dress Cookies for a Summer Bridal Shower
In addition to lacey heart sugar cookies, I whipped up a couple dozen wedding dress cookies for a bridal shower thrown by my East Coast homegirl. I can’t tell you how much I love this dress cutter. Its the cutest wedding dress cutter around. Unlike most other dress cutters which include an insanely huge bust above […]
Hippo Cookies for Ozzy’s First Birthday
Quinn’s toddler friend Ozzy just celebrated his first birthday, which was exactly the excuse I was looking for to make these ca-ray-zee cute hippo sugar cookies! I spotted them at Sweet Sugar Belle’s blog and started hunting through my cookie cutters to find something that might work for a hippo head. When I found the skull cookie […]
Basic Cookie Cutter Shapes: A Rectangular Frankenstein for Halloween!
I originally wanted to make scary Frankenstein cookies. A little something different in the world of cute cookies, but when it came time to pipe on Frankenstein’s face, I just couldn’t resist a cutesy smile. I think cute is simply more “me” than scary. Well, at least I hope so! Plus, it shows Frankie’s lovable […]
Sprinkle-y Pink Easter Bunny Cookies
A couple years back right before Easter, I picked up the most adorable pastel-colored nonpareils at Target. With a few shades of pink, pale blue, and white, this nonpareil mix is super dreamy and great for springtime cookies! I first used these sprinkles on this set of bunny cookies and have been itching to re-make and revise […]
