Disney this and Disney that

The kiddos love having their favorite characters on cookies.  And so does my hubby....
Star Wars Cookies:  I can't believe I haven't been asked to make more Star Wars sets.  I made a quick dark side set for his birthday this year.  Love ya hubby!   He's just a big kid at heart.  Royal icing with some hand painted details.  White stars were made with Americolor Bright White Gel Food Coloring.
Lilo and Stitch:  First time making Lilo and Stitch and there's actually no Lilo.  The little lady only wanted Stitch.  Oh well, he's still one adorable alien.  Royal icing with some hand painted details.
Frozen:  Oh my, I've made these ladies and their icy friend more times than I can count!  Secretly I wish I would never ever have to make another Frozen cookie.  But, I hear there's a sequel on the way so.....  Characters were piped in white royal icing and then hand painted using Americolor Gel Food Coloring.

Mickey Mouse Ears: Can't decide which character is your favorite?   Heading to Disney and looking for a fun way to celebrate?  Mickey mouse ears - any way you like!!!!

All The Pretty Things

Pink, Purple, Gold, Floral, Ribbon, and Lace....  Loving making these beautiful treats!

Let's start with this lovely blush, gold and floral cake.  Definitely in my top 10 faves.  Just so feminine and beautiful.  Inside: White cake with white chocolate whipped ganache. 



Next a simple, wintery wedding cake.  With hand piped lace (using royal icing) on the top tier, finished off with navy ribbon and a crystal broach.   The perfect little wedding cake.





Last but definitely NOT least: Purple, purple and....more PURPLE!  Oh and I threw in a little gold and pink too.  How to make the monogram cookies:  pipe one million little royal icing flowers and let dry.  I don't know which ones are my favorite - the floral monogram, the watercolor monogram.  So pretty!!!!

Valentine's, Minis, Gluten Free and Hockey Too!

For Valentine's Day this year I had to made over 500 cookies and was working right up until 1:00 on Valentine's eve.  There were minis, and pandas and gluten free yummies.   Spreading the love and wishing you all a very Happy BELATED Valentine's Day! 
First up: The minis.  We go together like....

A few times a year I get asked to make Gluten Free cookies.  I played around and decided that this was my favorite recipe for flavor, texture, and cookie cutters.  You can find the full recipe here

Note:  You absolutely MUST chill this recipe.  The gluten free dough does not behave the same way as your regular sugar cookie dough.  Also, I've noticed they tend to not hold their shape as well - so stick to less detailed cutters for best results. 
Since I was making gluten free cookies anyway....these Hockey cookies are gluten free too.   Nothing says I Love You like a gluten free cookie made special for the Hockey team! 
And my faves: These adorable panda Valentine cookies!!!!  Oh my gosh, I just want to squeeze them!
