Rae’s Having a Baby/Moving Cookies!

14 Aug

Rae an awesome coworker of mine surprised us all with news that she was pregnant a little over a month ago and I promised her I would make something special for her. Then she announced that she was leaving us and moving to another city so I thought better make that treat for her last day. So I web surfed for some great ideas for cookie decorating and I came across a blog¬†where this woman was inspired by a napkin and made some cute cookies. So limited on time I decided to reproduce similar cookies. I think they turned out great. Can’t wait to experiment more with royal icing. I used royal icing for my the wedding cake cookies in my last blog but I didn’t leave myself enough time to make 80 cookies, so they didn’t turn out as amazing as I thought they would. But at least these ones did!

Laura’s Bridal Shower

8 Aug

My sister’s bridal shower happened about 2 weeks ago and I decided to make a tower of cupcakes for dessert, sugar cookies for party favors and wrapped boxes as her centrepieces. The theme was pink and white.

The cupcakes were red velvet with vanilla buttercream icing. I decided to make smooth swirls (or as my sister and I call them icing poos, we are very mature) and frilly ones. I also decorated them with little sugar pearls.

The cookies were sugar cookie wedding cakes and each guest took home 2….it was quite the ordeal icing 80 sugar cookies in one day. My hand almost fell off.
