Cupcake Cookies


It only took five or six tries, but I finally feel confident enough of my 3-D cupcake cookie to share! To begin you need to have your cookies baked and ready. They can be as large or small as you would like, as long as the circles are graduated.  For each top, you will need 2-3 round cookies, the largest one being slightly larger than the biggest fluted cookie {I really really hope that made sense, LOL} For the bottoms, I like fluted … continue reading

3-D Nail Polish Cookie

That's the name of my friend Landa's blog.  Or I should actually say, that's the name of one of her blogs.  In addition that, she also manages a house full of boys, a Flickr group, and one big ol' dog, Sascha, who is the only other girl in the house, PLUS bakes for her friends and family! Landa is a cookie girl, or at least that's how I met her.  However, as I got to know her a little better, I realized that a better way to describe her would … continue reading

Peeking Bunny Cookies

Accidental successes reminded me of this little guy =) Isn't he cute? The funny part is, I didn't plan him that way.  While making last year's Easter cookies I ran into a little road block.  My cute little bunny was the outcome. If you look closely at one of my platters from last year, you can see Mr. Bunny AND his twin brother the stand alone bunny. When I found this cutter I was SOOOOOOOO excited, until I began using it.  It only … continue reading
