eMBA Logo Cookies

I don't have a whole lot to say about these cookies because I don't really know what they were for.  I was given a printout of a logo and I put it on cookies.  The end. 

I'm so glad I have a kopykake because there's no way I would have been able to do these without it.  Or at least they wouldn't have turned out nearly as well.

Graduation Cookies

Last week I made some graduation cookies for a little girl at my son's preschool.  I was given pretty much free reign on them, so I chose to make pink graduation caps because this little girl is so girly and always has the cutest frilly outfits on.  The coloring was awful in the pictures, but I had already lost the light and they were delivered the next morning.

Texas Cookies

My friend Sonja asked me to decorate some Texas cookies for her to take to a party for her brother-in-law, who is moving there.  I kept it simple with Texas flags on Texas-shaped cookies:

And I made some that have a tiny star sprinkle on the city that he's moving to:
And the stars were just a little too plain, so I added some sugar outlines to half of them.

Cookies for My Orthodontist

I have some good news.  Well, for me at least.  I can now eat popcorn and nuts.  I know, that doesn't sound that great, but I also have the pleasure of no longer having the inside of my lips cut up all the time.  Yes, I got my braces off today!  Just over a year and a half ago I made the decision to put myself through braces because I was told it might get rid of my TMJ.  And now my TMJ symptoms are pretty much gone, and a nice side effect is that my teeth are straighter too. 

I bought tooth and toothbrush cookie cutters awhile ago intending to make my orthodontist some cookies once the braces came off, and that day has finally come!  My orthodontist and TMJ specialist have been so nice and taken such good care of me that I needed to reward them with sweets.

This was my first try at using my kopykake for writing and it worked beautifully!  I was afraid it would be tricky, but I thought it looked great, or at least better than I could have done freehand.  I definitely won't stress out in the future if anyone asks for something written on a cookie.
