Yes, I am knee deep in Christmas orders, but I also came up with some cookies for my Jewish friends!

This popped up in my memories from a year ago today… my focus remains on cookies, unless you are one of my kids or my kids’ pediatrician! 😂😂
Once again, this was from before I had made a business page and while I did try to get some pictures, I wasn’t truly focused on getting great pics! 😩

My caption from then: When your kids’ sweet pediatrician asks you to make cookies AND cakes for her twins, it’s hard to say no! I did warn her that I have only ever made cakes for my family and never sold one before. 😬

These cookies were hand painted specially for a donation gift basket my mom was entering in a silent auction! The woman that bought it was taking them to California this week. I love hearing how far my cookies travel! 😊😊

I have so much to be grateful for that I’m going to post several days of cookies! These are my set from last year for my family! My family has eaten enough of my cookies over the years, so I like to mix it up and experiment with new flavors for them. These were caramel and cookie nip flavored and my nephew said they tasted like pancakes! 😋

Happy 7th birthday to my first born!

Printed these out on my Canon with edible ink for his birthday party this weekend because I needed to save some time somewhere! Outside of a few bubbles, they looked great and tasted even better!

Maybe one day I’ll have a Primera Eddie The Edible Ink Printer but *sigh* I don’t have the 💰💰💰 at this point.

I was so honored to make this set for Nasr Bros. Jewelers

I even tried to recreate a couple of Seiko watches they sent for the event!

I think these are by far the most detailed work I’ve done and it was so worth it in the end!

Thanks so much, Fabian! It was a pleasure!

This was a super fun and creative set to make!

My coworker’s husband celebrated his 30th anniversary with Market Street this past week and she had some great ideas for what she wanted these cookies to be from day 1. They are an amazing company and I know they are happy to have Will stick it out so long, as well!

I had fun figuring out what groceries to paint in each shopping cart. ☺️

Thanks so much Denice, and congratulations, Will!

The second set was maybe one of the most unique and most fun “favorite things” sets yet!

Her son wanted guitars, cars, and capybaras!!! How fun is that? If you don’t know what a capybara is, google it. They are the cutest rodents on the planet!!

I LOVED the guitars, too! I never asked if he preferred acoustic or electric, and I kind of wanted to try both, so both they got! 😆😆

The cars can probably be improved in the future, but I still liked the overall look.

Thanks again, Amanda! I loved creating these for you!

I was so excited when a repeat customer wanted me to create two different sets for her dad and her son. I will be posting them separately.

For her dad, it was all about golf, whiskey, and ci**rs! If you’ve been my friend long enough, you’ll know I did a whiskey and cigar set last winter, which I absolutely loved doing. But, I wanted to put a new spin on it this time with some new techniques I’ve picked up over the last year and my new gadgets (mostly my new projector) have helped, too! 😉

Stay tuned for set 2!

What a busy week we’ve had over here! I feel like life is in fast forward! 😆

I was very honored to make these engagement cookies for a family member of a family member, so basically that makes us family, right? I think that’s how it works!

Thank you for trusting me to do these, Carly! I wish The future Browns all the best in their upcoming marriage!

I got so busy focusing on my October orders, I almost forgot to post this fun “favorite things” birthday set!

These are for a 20 year old electrical engineering student, who likes the beach, robots, and cars. I had so much fun coming up with ways to represent his interests!

Harry Styles is a popular request lately. He is currently on tour with his Harry’s House album and doing a 5 night gig in Austin, TX. My friend’s daughter gets to celebrate her 21st birthday this weekend at Harry’s House! I hope they have fun and enjoy .

This order was kind of a last-minute rush and I told her I would have to keep it “simple.” 🤣🤣🤣

I guess I don’t fully remember how to do simple, but I loved this set! All the blues and gold.

A fun set for a lover’s birthday!

I had so much fun making these and was really happy with how they turned out! I even branched out and painted these photos using my projector and a paintbrush instead of my this time!

Thanks so much, Fahmida!

I was very honored when my boys’ speech therapist reached out and asked me to make cookies to celebrate her husband’s retirement from the Army! I know she and her girls will be happy to have him home with them going forward!

As a cookie artist, I am constantly given new and sometimes challenging requests. Some make me stretch my imagination a bit and quite honestly make me a little nervous before I start.

For this set, the request was anything tied to the singer Hozier, as the recipient is a big fan. I was given a list of her favorite Hozier songs.

I found a website called Redbubble that sells similar to Etsy. I was able to find fan art specific to almost every song on her list. I will list the original artists below and I truly hope they believe imitation is the best form of flattery. 😬

Fan art by song:

Made some cookies for my chiropractor to take on vacation for his family!

He texted me pictures of his kids and on the cookies they went! So simple and a great way to personalize cookies!!😊😊

Here they are! My first batch of test cookies using my new Canon Pixma printer with edible ink!

I was not going for perfect technique with these, just wanted to test image quality and how they affected taste and texture of my cookies. I am happy to report they blend in perfectly on top of my royal icing! I realized in making these I needed a new cutting tool, so I already picked that up. And, I am sure I will have to practice applying them.

Overall, I am very happy with being able to add custom images to my cookie sets going forward!! More coming soon!
