Pteranodons are way bigger than pterodactyls and not technically dinosaurs.  They kind of look … [Read more...]

Luckily, the people who deal with me on a daily basis embrace this quality {or at least pretend to} and patiently wait for me to catch up.  The next challenge is keeping this … [Read more...]

Decorated Moose Cookies

Moose Cookies SweetSugarBelle

Last week, when I shared my decorated bear cookies several of you wanted to know more about Mr. Moose. You know that old saying, "Ask and you shall receive?"  I'm pretty sure it wasn't referring to moose cookies, but we'll overlook that today. The first time around I used an older Wilton bear cutter to make these cookies.  I liked the angle of the arms and the extra ear space the lower body allowed. However, since this cutter is no … [Read more...]
