Rango Cookies {How-to}

Recently we took our kiddos to see the movie Rango.  First of all, let me say, although I LOVED it myself, it might have been a little too "adult" for my kids.  If they had watched it instead of spending most of their time fighting over the lone pickle, I might have had some explaing to do. Aside from that, Rango was pretty darn hilarious.  So, I cookie-fied him!  This is kind of a two or three day project, so start early. The day before, you … [Read more...]

For example, cookie cutters... Anywho, I made these for one of the most inspiring ladies in my little world. Most of you … [Read more...]

The great things about blogging, is I don't have to do that anymore. Almost everyone who comes here does so willingly because they want to look at cookies. So, … [Read more...]

Icing Bottle with Couplers

I get probably 3 emails a day about my cool little bottles.  "What are they?", "How do they work?" and   "Where can I get them?" are the most common questions. So, today I am going to show you my cool little bottles and tell you where to get your own. I pretty much use three different types of bottles.  A regular old Wilton candy bottle, and small and large bottles that are made to be used with couplers.
