A Glorious Friendship

The first time I "met" Glory it was over a cookie she'd made with fondant. I came across it on Flickr, and I was in the middle of telling her how pretty I thought it was, when I read her caption pointing out that her elegant embossed fondant cookie in fact, looked like an egg.  From that day on, I remembered her.  Before then, she was only an online stranger that created these beautiful treats.  However, … continue reading

Leopard Print Cookie {Tutorial}


Valentine's Day is coming fast, and with it comes leopard print.  I have made a lot of leopard print cookies over the last two years... Now, if you want to get technical, I really didn't know if this was leopard until yesterday.  To me cheetahs, leopards and jaguars all look the same.  But without telling you way more than you really want to know about the three, it is leopard.  I checked =) and if you really care to know the difference, … continue reading

If You Can’t Beat ‘Em…

Join 'em!  It's that time again!  The Superbowl is here.  Really.  It's right here in Texas.I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little relieved when both of Bern Dogg's teams, the Cowboys AND the Longhorns {did I mention we're from Texas} dropped out early.Finally, I had a fighting chance to watch TV on the weekend again.However, this weekend's a little different. No matter who's playing, there's no getting out of the … continue reading

Meet Loren {Ribbon Roses}

Today I would like to introduce you to my friend Loren. I actually "met" Loren by accident. It all started when another one of my favorite cookiers, Ali Bee, made the most stunning set of cookies I had EVER seen. What thrilled me the most were the tiny perfect little roses on them. Of course, I had to know how she made them, and that led me to Loren. I have tried for two years to make the perfect rose, and I never quite came up with a winner. … continue reading

"SOLE" Mates

My friend Mique and I had so much fun making cookie Valentine's last week, we thought we would do it again!  I couldn't wait to make her newest printables into  cookies!Believe it or not, I don't have a small shoe sole cutter, so I had to make one.  *A  flip-flop would work, but the one I have is too large for the design I wanted to doIt was easy and inexpensive.  All I needed was an extra dog bone cutter from … continue reading

I Love You, Don’t Smoke…

I wrote this recipe in memory of my Nanny, who continued to buy pecan sandies for her husband Paul, long after he passed away.  She was a huge part of my life, and even though she has been gone over two years, I still miss her every day.Today I had the privilege of submitting a guest post to Frosting For the Cause.  I chose to write in honor of my Nanny.  To read her story, click on the photo below.Nanny’s Pecan Sandie Roll-Outs … continue reading

Oh @#*! Icing

*Warning if you are easily offended, stop now. I have definitely been reading my Amy Sedaris book. Come back tomorrow after my mom calls and threatens to wash my mouth out with soap, I will be back to my normal non-inflamitory self.When I was younger and first moved out on my own, I said a lot of badwords. I don't know if it was the thrill of being able to, or one of the hazards of my close proximity to a bunch of sailors … continue reading

Einstein Was Crazy, Right?

For those of you who think I am organized, or have that I have all my ducks in a row, I LOVE YOU, but its not true =( The real Callye is always behind. I am one of those gals who gets caught up in a vision, makes a huge mess and cleans it up Bernie cleans it up later. I never sit down, and I am always doing at least ten things at once, which is strange since I don’t believe in multi-tasking. Oh yes, and I also procrastinate in THE WORST … continue reading

Glorious Friends

Ever since I came across this adorable photo on my friend Glory's Flickr page, I have been dying to make cookie Valentines with my kids.  This is the photo that started it all...The problem was, even though I know my way around a cookie cutter, I'm not so patient great with paper crafts.  So, late last Sunday night I called Glory for a last-minute, one-on-one, how-to on making printables.Did I mention … continue reading
