DIY Colored Sugar Pearls {Guest Post}

HI!!!  I'd wave, but I am currently sporting a crippled arm. I had a little surgery not long ago, and I'm still super sore. Yes, I know, it kind of sucks...especially when you decorate cookies for fun and they got my good arm.  But lucky for you, in the meantime, I found something REALLY cool to keep you occupied.I stumbled upon this little trick on my friend Linzy's blog, Flour and Sugar, and I was so tickled with … [Read more...]

Happy Graduate Face Cookies

Sometimes I get a little bored with my cutters.  I have just about every graduation cutter available, I think...but eventually I found myself wanting something a little more than just the average cap or diploma.  So, I made these...They were attempt two at a set I made last year.  The problem with the first set, however, was that I used my actual cap cutter and a circle, so they were HUGE...or at least WAY bigger than I like my … [Read more...]

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...]

Flowers in Pots Cookies

Mix36

I'm one of THOSE girls.  YOU know the ones...I'm one of  the gals that HATES to get flowers.  It actually pains me {unless they are wildflowers or borrowed from my neighbor's rosebush} to receive them.  If my husband is going to spend $100 on me I'd much rather have something that will  still be alive {or useful} after a week. For example, cookie cutters... Anywho, I made these for one of the most inspiring ladies in my little world. Most of you … [Read more...]
