I wanted to make some Apple cookies for the teachers and staff at the elementary school! These cookies I thought turned out pretty neat! I think the teachers and the staff appreciated them!
I made these cookies for my annual Camp Reunion in Lake Tahoe at Rustic Cottages, in Tahoe Vista. A very cute lodge with many large cabins and also several tiny cabins! We love it there! It’s not right on the beach, but it’s right across the street from one of the best beaches, and close to grocery stores, restaurants, and the local library!
My aunt asked me to bring crawdad cookies after we got the idea from a young 15 year old. We met her The Cameron Park Golf Course. She was telling me about her Cakes for Crohn’s business which she made a Crawdad cake for a friend. My uncle told me to make a cake, but alas he got cookies!
When I think of Lake Tahoe, is beautiful water, which you gaze across and see snow capped mountains, and mountains on all side.
I wanted to do these cookies for some time, and so it was extra fun to do them and give them to my aunt who is a great artist! My mom would have loved these cookies also! It is her recipe after all, so of course she would love the cookies! Plus she was also a great artist!
This paint palette was made from the polar bear cookie! I cut off the head, and evened out the feet and added a hole for the artists palette. The paint brushes I used my carrot cookie cutter, and the top part of the carrot was the bottom part of the paint brush! I trimmed the carrot edges to make them more like a paint brush, they are abstract.
Not like these paint brush cookies…….
These are gorgeous! They look so real!
An entirely different style Sweetapolita does wonderful stuff! I’ve seen many wonderful creations from her site.
Happy Friday! Martini’s on me! Time to relax for the weekend, make some drinks put on the flip flops and it’s California so of course we are all sitting under palm trees.
I made these for my uncles birthday in July. I think this is actually a small margarita glass but I made it into the martini.
He likes the cookies but his grandchildren enjoy them just as much if not more! Truthfully the whole family enjoys the cookies, except maybe one or two people who may not like the sugar cookies. I never knew a kid that refused one.
The flip flops are fun, and easy to do also. The hibiscus flower I learned from Sweet Sugar Belles site, as also a bunch of other techniques. She has inspired many other bakers as myself.
Last but not least don’t forget the pineapple!?
These cookies were so much fun to do! They were for a dear family friend, who is having her first baby! The happy couple are expecting a boy and some of her family members made very adorable tye dye onesies. This was the theme of the sugar cookies.
These decorated sugar cookies are also special because I didn’t do them alone, my cousins and their kids help decorate also. They really had some of the cutest ideas too! That is one of the reasons I love to do cookies and art with kids!
Another cute baby onesie! These were super simple to make just make ring of each color and spread outwards with a toothpick. I also use a crab pick.
I love the elephants and giraffe cookie cutters, they are so cute. They are also fun to decorate. I will have to make some that are more real like too some time.
What a great time these cookies were I learned how to do the tye dye from the kids for the most part! They are so artistic, after they left
I loved making these cowboy boot decorated sugar cookies over the 4th of July this past year. We have a local rodeo and who doesn’t love cowboy boots in northern California?
I made some of them red, white and blue, with brown boot base. One of my favorites is the cowhide boot. The paisley pattern was also fun to test out.
