Lynette contacted me last month about making cookies for her friend Ileana’s baby shower. I was ecstatic about this because it was a baby girl theme! I’ve been doing so much baby boy stuff that I was looking forward to this. Lynette mentioned she wanted to have two cookies; one baby carriage and the other was undecided. When she sent me the invitation, she asked if I could possible make a cookie out of the silhouette of the pregnant women on the invite. It immediately reminded of SweetSugarBelle! She made these amazing cookies that I thought were so beautiful.

Lynette really wanted to incorporate as much of the invitation into the cookies as much as possible. The main colors are pink, white and black, gingham & a little bit of pink polkadot’s. For some of you that have made decorated cookies, there are certain patterns that are down right hard to mimic. For me gingham pattern is impossible to make, but I tried my best…

Here’s the baby carriages…

I wanted to honor the request of Lynette about the look of the cookies and thought the following silhouette cookies did just that…

I made a stencil out of the silhouette to make sure I got the same consistency for each cookie. I’m not 100% comfortable with the technique, but if you want to see some perfect stenciled cookies, check out Decadent Cookie!

Here they are all together…

I think this one was my favorite…

Now the tricky part was packaging the cookies without having them break. I had just bought some boxes for a future order that I knew would go perfect with these cookies….

I only made 16 of these favors, but it seemed like a lot more!

I hope Ileana had a great shower and wishing her and family all the best with their new addition to the family!

And of course to Lynette for creating the vision that I wanted to honor! ^_^

Blanca found me through my website and wanted to order Hello Kitty cookie favors. She loved the cookies I made for Eliyah’s Birthday. Since her daughter was turning 5, she wanted #5 cookies with the different colored bows. So I ended up making 1 dozen of Hello Kitty and 1 dozen #5’s.

Blanca also requested to order mini flowers and butterflies like the ones i made for Camryn’s 7th birthday.

Thank you Blanca for letting me be a part of your daughter’s birthday! Happy 5th Birthday to Jocelyn!

Our good friends, Dylan & Sherylle, celebrated their daughter’s first birthday this past weekend. It was a jungle theme party and Sherylle really went all out.

As part of my gift to Jordyn, I made a smash cake. Some of you know, I’m not very fond of making cakes, but this was little 6″ cake so it work out okay.

I had left over sugar cookie dough from a previous order so I surprised them with little Jordyn cookies.

Sherylle wanted to make cupcakes the party too and ended up making 9 dozen cupcakes! I volunteered to ice the cupcakes at the party which was really fun to do. Sherylle also made the cupcake toppers. She really out did herself!

Happy Birthday to Jordyn! We love you so much!!!
