Chelsea & Evan's Cookie Bar Revealed

Self-described "cookie lovers", Chelsea and Evan decided to forgo a traditional wedding cake in favor of a decadent spread of cookies. The couple, who married at Pippin Hill Farm in May, chose six varieties of classic drop cookies.  In a nod to tradition, Chelsea and Evan also chose wedding cake shaped cookies monogrammed with their initials.

The ever creative Meghan Streit of Shindig helped the bridal couple create a display that would not only wow the guests, but provide an engaging after-dinner attraction.

I'm told that there was not a single crumb left at the end of the night...
just what every baker hopes to hear!

Grab a cold glass of milk and enjoy Eric Kelley's wonderful photos...

I love Chelsea's expression (lower left photo, she's on the right) when she sees the cookie bar for the first time!

20 Years, Really?

Well, well, well...those 20 years went by quickly!  
This past weekend was my 20 year high school reunion.  My husband (who was a few years ahead of me at the same school) and I enjoyed a great night of fun, laughter and a little bit of dancing to some of the great classics of the early 90s.

My tiny contribution to the evening was some cookies featuring the South Lakes High School logo.  The cookies were gifts for prizes for some "superlative" winners, committee members and faculty.
Long-time friends from SLHS Class of 1992...we haven't changed a bit, right?
Already looking forward to celebrating 25!

Guess the party...Gift Certificate Contest!

No licensed character cookies, no problem!

I frequently receive requests for cookies to coordinate with a licensed character theme party.  Because I am a small business and obtaining license to use someone else's creative property can be expensive and require quite a bit of time and paperwork, I simply do not make cookies in likenesses of licensed characters.  However, this doesn't mean there can't be themed cookies to coordinate with your party of choice!

These adorable spaceship cookies were used for an "Angry Birds Space" birthday party.  Using the space "theme" and colors inspired by the paper products being used for the party, we were able to create a perfectly coordinated party favor!

 Ready for the contest?
These two sets of cookies were done recently to coordinate with two "character" parties.
Guess the themes of the parties in a comment below and you will be entered to win a $20 gift certificate!  Want to earn another chance to win?  Just share this blog post on your FaceBook or Twitter account or link back from your blog.  Leave a separate comment below for a second entry.
Winning entry will be drawn Friday, October 12th at 10am.

Birthday Set #1 - Purple/Green/White
Birthday Set #2 - Yellow/Red/White/Black
Pssst...You don't have to be right to win, you just have to enter!  And, I'll give you a hint...these kiddie-friendly characters have been beloved (and sometimes even parodied) for several decades.  Happy Guessing!
