My last post of 2016 and probably one of my favorite posts!!! I am obsessed with giving milk and cookies to Santa.. even at 27 years old. So I had some extra dough and decided to make a few tins of cookies and milk for parents to give their little ones on Christmas Eve. No better way to have an extra little bit of fun with your kids. Best of all- the "Santa's" get to taste them too!
Let the holiday festivities begin! Cara ordered these chocolate fudge cake pops all wrapped up to hand out to her coworkers as they leave for holiday vacation! I created these custom cake pop tags with the name of her company and a little holiday greeting on each. Nothing better than going home with a little something sweet!!
Christmas is here again! My favorite time of the year. Annndd the best time to give out and eat some special Christmas cookies! These cookies were made for two sisters- Bella and Adalyn- in honor of Adalyn's first Christmas! Just a perfect little collection of Christmas fun!
Merry Christmas to all!!
Vianca's family is welcoming her into the world with some special sweets on her baby shower day! I love this collection of sweet, dainty cookies and pops for Vianca. I especially love the family cookie with mom, dad and babys' name. These truffle pops are coated in chocolate and metallic gold to pull the collection together.
How much fun are these cupcakes?!?! I am not an animated movie kind of person, but I watched Finding Dori for the first time this month and absolutely loved it! Every character was so adorable and the story was great for everyone! For these cupcake toppers, I incorporated other characters from the movie that I loved and made an under the sea collection to coordinate with this Dori themed birthday party!
Happy Birthday KB3!
I had a request from Lisette to make her niece-to-be a baby shower jungle cake--- with purple of course! This cake was a challenge for me but I thought it turned out great! I kept the bottom tier simple with a light purple zebra pattern and then added leaves and animals peeking out on the top tier, a cute baby elephant made out of rice treats sat on top of it all!
Here are some of the cupcakes and cookies that I made for Ari's "My Little Pony" bithday party. Ari's mom found these great cupcake toppers on Pinterest that I was able to replicate for her. (Not sure of the original designer!) The cupcake symbols match to the symbol on each of the ponies. Below are custom cookies that I made of Ari's favorite ponies! Characters are always my biggest challenge because of the EYES! So difficult but so cute for the little ones!
Happy Birthday Ari!
How FUN is this group of cookies! I love Dr. Seuss and I also love decorating cookies free-hand with that iconic technique of a Dr. Seuss book! This collection was made for two brothers ages 1 and 4 that were actually born different years, but same day, same time, same hospital room! No better theme to have!
I had so much fun making this beautiful set of cookies and cake for Vanessa's husband Nik! It is Thanksgiving week- and no better time to celebrate the birthday of a wonderful husband and father! This collection was based around beautiful falling leaves, gold accents and of course the family of three PLUS baby on the way!
Happy Birthday Nik!
Anna reached out to me to make her new homeowners a little set of cookies as a "thank you" gift to being such great clients of hers! This is a perfect way to welcome a client or friend into their new home-- with freshly baked personalized cookies!
Thanks Anna and congratulations Vetrano family!
Frank's favorite theme is STAR WARS and I made him some awesome little Star Wars cookies to celebrate with his friends. Here are his favorite characters turned into "smaller" versions of themselves!
Happy 5th Birthday Frank!
Football player Tim Wright has opened an amazing barber shop on Rutgers campus for everyone to enjoy. This two tier cake and collection of cookie favors was made to celebrate the great success and opening of his new shop!
Congratulations to THE WRIGHT CUT!
I just LOVE these simple and sweet cookies for Chloe's birthday. She is having a swim party with all of her friends and wanted some under the sea cookies for her treats! Beautiful purple and aqua colors with a little shimmer on these gorgeous favors!
Happy Birthday Chloe!
It is Kathy's birthday and her family is throwing her a Halloween birthday party full of beautiful sugar skull details. Here are my purple and black sugar skull cookies with custom favor tags made to match!
Happy Birthday Kathy!
Bella's birthday falls around Halloween and this year she is turning three with a collection of spooky cookies made just for her! I love the fun variety here with airbrushing and colored sugar details!
Happy Birthday Bella!
Kylie is turning ONE this year and her birthday is all about being a little princess! I made some shimmer cake pops with crowns and "glittered up" some cookies for Kylie's big day
Happy First Birthday Kylie!
Tessy and Jon celebrated their adorable little girls birthday in pink and gold everything! Nothing screams baby girl like blush pink with touches of gold and metallic glitter. I made some chocolate covered oreos with star details and twinkling pink truffle pops with gold bows on top!
Happy 1st Birthday Isabel!!
What is better than two sisters having a superhero girl party together! Ages 3 and 5- and they are all about supergirl! I customized the cookies to match their hair color and added their ages to the superhero outfits. So crazy and fun!
Alicia and Jose threw my Goddaughter a 2nd birthday Bubble Guppies party! Alicia went all out with decorations, themed food to pick on, guppy sack race games and of course some awesome cookies! Here we have all of Emmy's favorite characters- and of course some bubbles, shells and starfish.
Happy Birthday Emmy!!
How can the smallest thing be so time consuming!!! This was my first attempt at any Shopkin cookie-- Rainbow Bite is Charlotte's favorite little toy and I had to replicate them for her birthday party! Instead of piping all of these colors, I decided to hand paint them to be able to get the watercolor look and the shades as close as possible to the cookie.
Happy Birthday Charlotte!
Janiya turns three this year and her favorite shows are obviously changing. This was a new one for me- UmiZoomi! The characters are adorable and I used them to be the stars of the cake and cookies that I made for Janiya's party. Lots of bright, fun colors- shapes- and colored sugar for everyone!
Happy Birthday Janiya!
Brittani is having a baby and I created a dessert table for her shower to welcome the little prince! Liam Michael got a table with everything sweet-- a two tier cake with golden crown, chocolate dipped pretzels, glitter Oreos, customized cookies and personalized cupcakes with toppers!
