Paris-Themed Teapot Cookies

My mother-in-law ordered some cookies to take to a birthday tea at a Paris-themed tea salon.  It was a bit of a last minute order and I didn't have much time to plan them out, so I just did the fleur de lis, Eiffel tower, and a little scrolly sort of design.

Cookies For My Little Cookie Monster

My little boy turns 3 today!  For his first couple of birthdays we went with a monkey theme (see here), but since I've started decorating cookies, I've found that my biggest fan is my son (although he doesn't care about how they're decorated, just how they taste).  We live in a small apartment, so when I have orders I usually just extend our dining room table so that the cookies can dry on one side of the table while we eat at the other end.  I usually try to hide them though because he will not stop whining until he gets a cookie.  He has actually skipped dinner before because we wouldn't give him a cookie.  So between his obsession with my cookies and his newfound love for Sesame Street, I decided to make him cookie monster cookies for his birthday. 

I also used my large square plaque cutter to make a subway art cookie with all of the nicknames we've used for my son over the years.

Happy Birthday, Will!

Wedding Cookies

This last weekend my husband and I took a road trip to AZ to attend a wedding.  It was our first entire weekend alone without the kid, and it was wonderful!

I decided to make a few cookies for the bride and groom that match their invitation.  The invitation was on shimmery paper, so I added white pearl dust for some sparkle, although it's hard to see in the pictures.

Congratulations, Greg and Susanne!
