Cookies worth Fencing for!

I got a request for fencing cookies. When I see fencing or sword fighting I always think of the Princess Bride......
"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."  :)

The cookie request was not for Princess Bride cookies but those would be fun right?!

I thought about doing the fencing helmet for this order but did not want to tackle the mesh look.

So we went with the sabre....

fencing action.....

and the jacket!

A fencing student wanted to give his fencing teacher these as a thank you!

I think they turned out great!

Cookies For Breast Cancer - Are you aware?

This order was for Meggan, she is the girlfriend of  my most favorite customer and close friend younger brother. Meggan was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago and a Pink party was thrown for her and she wanted to thank the lady who organized the party.

I had ordered a ribbon stencil that I wanted to use on these cookies but unfortunately it did not make it in time to use on this order. 

But I think they still turned out great.

My heart always breaks when I hear someones cancer story. I hope and pray that Meggan will be able to win this battle she is faced with!

I hope that more and more people will be aware of breast cancer. Monthly self exams and mammograms save lives so please do them regularly!

Minecraft Cookies & Cake

Is your boy or girl obsessed with Minecraft?? My 7 year old is. If he was allowed to play it all day I just think he might. If you are not sure what Mine Craft is you can click here to find out. 
For his birthday he wanted Minecraft cookies so I did a couple different things. 

For his treat to take to his class I did some creeper and TNT cookies.

For his small party with friends I made some color canvas cookies that are just white flooded cookies with the coloring image outlined in black icing using the wet on wet method. 

Then the kids used edible ink markers to color them they way they wanted.

I had talked to my son and before all these events took place and asked if he wanted a cake for his birthday or cookies and he choose the cookies but on the actual morning of his birthday he said he was excited to have birthday cake that night. I was like "oh I thought the cookies were what you had decided to have." but he said "you have to have cake on your birthday".

Luckily I had some cake frozen in the freezer so I just quickly made a cube shape and the decorated with Melty Bead art!

RaCk - Random Act of Cookie Kindness

This may have happened back in October! But it is still worth talking about.

Being a part of the cookie community has been so wonderful. I belong to an online group of cookiers and they are the most sweetest people on earth, willing to watch each others back and help out those that have had a cookie catastrophe!!

Back in the beginning of October one member posted a review of a well known etsy baker who steals others people photos and tries to post them as her own to sell her cookies. That is a BIG no no!! Well the review happened to be from a young woman who had ordered cookies from this lady for her bridal shower and the cookies where not packaged properly with just one little sheet of bubble wrap on top. They arrived to the bride in crumbs and did not look a thing like the picture she posted as hers to sell. This bride had tried to contact the seller many times to no avail hence the bad review. 

So when a screenshot of the bad review showed up on the cookie group wall Cindy's Cozy Kitchen suggested that we make her some cookies to make it up to this young bride so she would know that the cookie world is tight and we take care of each other and that we are not out there to scam customers. Within hours cookiers from all over the country were offering to help by sending a dozen of cookies each to the bride for her wedding.

Tami of Tami Rena's Cookies contacted the bride and promised that we were not crazy stalkers but that we wanted to help her out and restore her faith in the many many many other cookie businesses that are not out there to rip off their customers or other cookie businesses by using their photos as their own.
We found out that her colors were cream and white and the wedding was in just one week!!!

We had 19 volunteers who busily set out to make a dozen each of cookies to ship out to the bride in time for the wedding.

I did a few different things, from stencils, to brush embroidery.

It was fun to work together on such a project of random kindness!

Here is the collage of all the cookies she received. Amazing work from all those that contributed!!

Here is a list of all those that made cookies for the bride from left to right

But there is more!! There were many more bakers that wanted to help out but was not able to make cookies at that time so they genously paid for others shipping costs!! Isn't that wonderful. Makes me feel so wonderful that there are so many people out in the world that geunuaily want to help others. So check out these talented bakers as well.
