Valentines Day Cookies :)

 Oh happy day of love! ;) This girl got spoiled on Vday :) In the early morning before work, my amazing fiance surprised me with a pretty Tiffany's box!! With an equally pretty heart necklace inside. I cried saying 'Nobody's ever gotten me a Tiffanys box before!' Haha
Then, after work, we raced to the movie theatre to catch an early show. While Justin bought the tickets I got myself a peanut butter sundae :) We saw The Monuments Men (An excellent movie - I highly recommend seeing it) and then we stopped for chicken wings before heading home <3 All in all a fantastic day. We NEVER go out on Valentines day...there is far too much hype and the crowds are just too much..but at 4:30 (lol early bird special) it was really nice. :)
 Aaaand these are the lovely cookies that I made for a lady at work. Pink, pink, red, girly and pretty...really the way Valentines day should look :)

All cookies trays are $50/2 dozen cookies (With the single letter cookies - it comes to around 30 cookies in total )

I hope you all had a wonderful day, spent with the one/those you love most! <3 <3 <3

Soccer ball cookies!

 I believe I may have mentioned it before, but I LOVE decorated cookies! Seriously! They are my new favorite baked good :) ..These soccer balls...made me want to smash each and every one! For some terrible reason every time I've been asked to make soccer ball treats I cannot wrap my head around how the shapes fit together! Gah! Geometry! hahah.

It took a lot of practice(on paper of course) and then I had to draw on the cookies over and over with my edible markers.. I think there were even some tears that night...and maybe a smashed cookie..which is really therapeutic! When I first started decorating cakes I made a Lego man cake, some of you may was causing me a ton of grief and so I smashed one of the mini Lego was actually pretty fun :) If you've ever get the chance to smash a cake, I recommend it; not because of the therapy it provides when frustrated but for the entertainment factor. :)
 I am currently working on wedding cake cookies <3 for the first of 2 bridal shows I'm taking part in this month. AND I have some baked baby shower onsie cookies waiting to be decorated!!

Happy baking ;)
