Dora the Explorer

ahhh dora dora dora....when i was asked to design some dora cookies for a little girls birthday party i was excited. i knew this was going to be a challenge since this would be the first time doing dora cookies. i checked online to find almost ALL the dora cookies were just of her face. so i made my own cookie cutter out of cardboard & went to work. they came out quit nice i must say. i am happy with the turnout and hope the little girl thinks so too ;) happy baking!!!

hearts for anyday...

i finally got around to making some heart cookies with my heart cookie cutters. hearts can be used for any occasion right? well hell yes they can. hearts represent love & love should be everyday in my opinion. im really enjoying making & decorating cookies. i havent made many cupcakes lately but with st. patty's day coming up im thinking that will be a perfect reason to make both ;)

Happy Valentine's Day

there are so many cute ideas to go crazy with for valentines day. tons of candy at the stores & bakeries going all out with the sugary goodness of cakes, cupcakes and cookies. i had purchased a skull & crossbones cookie cutter back when it was halloween. i havent used it yet so what better day to use it than Valentine's Day haha. so i tried to make it look heartsy...."heartsy" is that even a word? first try at using this cookie cutter & still getting better with my cookie decorating skills. i need to find someone that will eat all these so i can make more & practice more ;)
happy weekend & happy valentines day everyone xoxox
