Cowboy Baby Shower Cookies

Last week I made some cookies for a cowboy-themed baby shower. 

I love that font!  It's a pain in the butt to pipe, but it looks so cool!

I usually make a sketch anyway when I'm making a variety of cookies, especially if they're going to match an invitation, but I took a picture of the sketch for you so I can participate in LilaLoa's February challenge.

President's Day Cookie Collaboration

Today I get to share with you that I got to participate in my first cookie collaboration project!  I feel like one of the cool kids now.  Anne of Flour Box Bakery was kind enough to put together a fun project for President's Day.

And I got Abraham Lincoln!  I decided to try my hand at painting again.  What do you think? I also made a few accessory cookies. 


 And here's the collage with all of the presidents:

Little House on the Prairie Cookies

Last week I made cookies for a Little House on the Prairie party. 

I made the gingham using my airbrush and a stencil I made.  I got the idea from Glorious Treats.

This is seriously one of my first pictures where the purple actually looks like purple.  I mentioned last week that I got a light tent.  This was my second time using it and I love it!  I have a hard time getting good natural light in our apartment, so I'm really glad I finally gave in and bought it.  Hopefully my photos will be much better from now on.

Oh, and one last thing.  Last month I entered my black and white pattern cookies in LilaLoa's contest and she listed my cookies as one of her favorites!  You can see that post here

Tractor Cookies

Here are some cookies I made for my nephew's birthday to match his invitation.

I ended up making the tractor cookie cutter because I ordered the wrong tractor cookie cutter before I saw the invitation.  Oops.  It worked though.

Oh, and I bought a light tent.  What do you think?  Definitely better, although I still need to play around with it.  I think my lights were a little too close to the tent for this picture (the double shadows).  Today I backed them up while taking pictures of some cookies and I think that was a lot better.   Next week I'll share my wildflower cookies for a Little House on the Prairie party.
