Elmo Birthday Cookies

I made baptism cookies for Brooklyn as my very first real custom order, and now she’s 1! I was so happy to get the opportunity to make these cookies for her big birthday.  I’ve been wanting to make Sesame Street cookies for a while now, so when her mom asked if I could make Elmo themed cookies, I was ecstatic! I immediately ordered the custom cutters online and started sketching my ideas.

I decided on a fun, bright and cheerful colour scheme of red, pink and melon. I also wanted to give the chalkboard effect a try.  I only made one because unfortunately the all black icing can leave your teeth a rather unattractive colour – tasty, but not great for pictures! I love the look though!IMG_7551 IMG_7553 IMG_7554 IMG_7555 IMG_7557 IMG_7564 IMG_7565 IMG_7568 IMG_7570 IMG_7573 IMG_7577 IMG_7578 IMG_7581 IMG_7582 IMG_7585 IMG_7590 IMG_7591Happy First Birthday Brooklyn!!

Pregnancy Announcement Cookies

A friend asked me to help her announce to her family that she and her partner are expecting in January.  The bonus? Her sister-in-law just happens to be one of my very best friends who is also expecting her first baby in November! I can’t even begin to put into words how truly honoured and privileged I felt to be given such an amazing opportunity.  Announcing that you’re pregnant to your close family is always an exciting and momentous occasion, and I was determined to give them a great set that would make the event that much sweeter.

She so graciously gave me creative license, so I went with neutral but modern colour scheme. I had SO many creative ideas, I really had to exercise self control.  Hopefully I’ll get to create all my other inspirations some time in the future…maybe for baby #2?? IMG_7376

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but anytime I can personalize a set, I jump all over it. For this occasion especially, I wanted to add as many personal touches as possible.
