Easter Cookies for a Cause *Make Savannah Stronger Fundraiser*

Need Easter cookies?  Going to be in the Hamburg area tomorrow??  Here are the exclusive Easter cookie sets I'm donating to the Fundraiser for Savannah.  You can only get these sets at the fundraiser on Sunday, April 9th.  Fundraiser will be held at 301 Union St, Hamburg, NY 14075 from 12pm - 3pm.  

Help make Savannah stronger by attending, enjoying some goodies and doing a little shopping.    There are lots of wonderful items being donated for auction/raffle/sale by some amazing local people and businesses. 

I have a little nine year old girl of my own and I can only imagine how difficult this has been for Savannah and her family.   I hope my fellow WNYers will stop out to support this sweet little girl.  Not local, but still want to help out Savannah?  You can do so here.

Simple Bunny Cookies + GIVEAWAY! **CLOSED**

These easy to decorate bunnies make such a pretty addition to your holiday table!  The delicate little butterflies kissing he bunny's nose is made from wafer paper using a butterfly punch (I believe I purchased that particular one at Michaels).  I added a little color to the wafer paper using a very small amount of food coloring. Note:  to much water/food coloring will melt your delicate wafer paper.  I also added some rosy cheeks with pink petal dust.

NOW FOR THE FUN STUFF!   It seems like forever since I had a GIVEAWAY!!!!  I'm just so flattered to have such wonderful readers and I just noticed there are over 500 likes on my facebook page!    So as a thank you, I'm giving away 2 Dozen Spring Cookies!!!!!  You can enter below now thru 4/8 and winner will be announced on the 9th!!!!  Contest is open to US residents only.

Big Hero 6, Trolls, and Sweet Babies!

Well, the year is flying by!  Spring is soooo close now and I can't wait to be back outside.  The weather in March is up and down, but I love it!  I am a March baby after all.  You start to get those warm days here and there and .... sometimes snow.    But those warm days feel amazing!

Here are some cookies I finished up in February.  My kids really liked this bunch.  They're kind o' obsessed with Trolls right now!  While I have oodles of shamrocks to work on in the coming week, I'll be starting my Easter designs mid month.  I'm hoping to prep some video tutorials for the Easter cookies and if things go smoothly, I might actually get them up before Easter!

Big Hero 6 cookies:  Hero and Baymax are painted with food coloring with piped outlines.
Trolls Cookies:  Hand cut shapes.  I prefer to use a pastry wheel as opposed to a knife for smooth edges on my hand cut cookies.  These cuties are royal icing with hand painted details here and there.
Baby Shower Cookies:  Little smiling sleepy snugly babies.  For the babies in blankies I used a number 8 cookie cutter (the type without the cutout holes).
