That’s a wrap on Summer 2022! I’ll be back with some fun new options in the Fall!
Cookies ‘n Cream mini cupcakes (2 dozen)
Cherry Chip mini cupcakes (2 dozen)
Let me know if you’re interested! Pick up in Wyandotte tonight or tomorrow.
To round out the week, these fun 70 cookies are heading up north for what’s sure to be a groovy birthday party today!
I initially came up with this heart design for a recent kid’s birthday party, but as I’ve been working on graduation cookies lately I thought I could turn it into a cute addition to a girls graduation party set! I’m so grateful for my friend and customer who trusted me when I described my vision for these to be included in her order.
I’ve also been playing around with my framing of the edible images I print here at home and absolutely love how this Riverview HS logo cookie turned out!
Two grad parties this weekend for two friends who I still can’t believe have high school graduates!
Congrats to Alex and Connor - best of luck to you both!
This week we made:
⛳️ 180 Favors for a golf outing hosted by the lovely folks at the Grosse Ile Pet & Garden Center
👩🎓❤️🤍 4 dozen Grosse lle grad party favors
🍓 A sweet strawberry bushel for a berry special teacher (sorry, can’t help it)
⚾️ And a few more dozen baseballs! I guess I’ll just plan on making a few dozen baseballs every week this time of year - I swear I’ve made them more this year than ever before so I’m trying to come up with fun new ways to photograph them
Before I hit the graduation parties hard over the next few weeks I was happy to provide cookies for a high school baseball banquet and an adorable brother/sister birthday party! Thank you, Laura, for your continued support of my little business 🥰
The last order from the week is heading out this morning!
Grad parties for:
North Farmington 🖤💛
Teddy Bear Day Care 💙💛
And a sweet baptism 💗🤍🌸
I love to see what customers do with the cookies once they leave my kitchen. Check out the fun cookie/treat display for the North Farmington order! I’m thinking I’ll head over to Amazon now to buy those number trays for my kids’ grad years 😬🤷🏼♀️
The last order of the week is a cute one! I guess little Liam loves his Thomas the Train so that’s how he’ll be celebrating his birthday for the foreseeable future! Posting pics of this year’s design as well as last year’s, just for fun 🚂💙❤️
Lining up these baseballs this week made me think of a cute idea for Memorial Day/4th of July so I’ll share that soon! ⚾️🇺🇸
And I rounded out the week helping to add a little something special for an 80th birthday party! 🥳🖤💛🤍
It doesn’t happen every time, but it’s always my goal to make personalized cookies for my kids’ teams to enjoy after their last game of the season. I’m happy to report that I got it done for my oldest son’s final middle school baseball game tonight! Good luck boys! ⚾️❤️🤍
It’s hard to believe the school year has gone by so fast, but here we are whipping up graduation cookies! 👩🎓👨🎓
And of course there are always birthdays to be celebrated all year long 🥳
So this week my kitchen churned out 120 cookies, 36 mini cupcakes, and a chocolate chip cookie cake
Have a great weekend and enjoy the ☀️ today!

Wishing some young baseball players a happy opening day today in Wyandotte and a very happy 65th birthday to Nancy who got a yummier Medicare card than the one she now has to carry in her wallet!
When you’re a baker, sometimes teacher appreciation gifts look something like this 😬 I know, I know, teachers love gift cards, but I thought a cookie cake to bring home and share with her family would be nice too!
Loving this cookie cutter transformation from Easter bunny face to sweet rosettes 🐰🌹 I follow https://www.facebook.com/sweetsugarbelleblog/ for these fun ways to get creative with cookie cutters I own instead of buying new ones for every new shape I’m doing!
Happy baby shower day to a very sweet customer who’s having a tea party to celebrate her daughter!
Although I wasn’t able to offer a variety of Easter goodies this year due to a family issue, I’m so glad I was able to honor the orders that had already been placed. It gave me the opportunity to do a few designs I’ve been wanting to do for a while! The carrots and watercolor eggs aren’t new, but the Peeps and gingham bunnies with the buttercream tail are.
Which bunny style do you like better:
The silly/cute #Peeps 💗💛
the classy/pretty checked bunnies 🐰
Not one to really celebrate April Fools Day, this fake drip made of cherry buttercream to go with the cherry chip cake underneath is about as tricky as I can get 🤪😋 I guess the caramel buttercream I used to make the fake coffee in the cup could count too!
Hope you guys have a fun day and maybe you can give me some fun, quick and easy trick ideas to play on my kids today 🤷🏼♀️ #aprilfools
Some Grosse Ile High School sports banquets to close out the week 🏒🏀

Although not back in full advertising swing just yet, I decided to take Valentine’s Day orders from anyone who inquired.
💗💜🧡💚💛 Happy to report that 144 “conversations” are about to get started among classmates and friends on Monday!
I have some ideas for next year that will include more teenage and adult conversations too 🤣
I’m back in business and this cutie was picked up yesterday just in time before the snow arrived! It’s a 6” yellow cake with chocolate frosting requested to have some kind of sports theme. I’m thinking next year I’ll offer these up for Super Bowl weekend…minus the birthday message of course 🤪
So I heard on the news this morning that it’s #NationalCookieDay 🍪😋 While my shop is currently closed for the remainder of the year for a home renovation project, I’m here to post my favorite Christmas cookies from last year! ❤️💚🎄 These sets and more to come in 2022!
Wrapping up my Thanksgiving sets that head out tomorrow! As I do every year while I’m finishing these up, I’m reflecting on how thankful I am to be able to do this.
🧡 Thankful for my husband who works so hard so I can stay home to take care of the family and bake on the side - both because I love to make people happy and because the extra money is nice
🧡 Thankful for all of you who interact with me on this page
🧡 Thankful for everyone who has ever placed an order, big or small.
Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃🍽🥧
120 helmets and footballs ready to be wrapped and head out the door for a high school football banquet!🏈❤️🤍
Playing catch up on this Halloween morning! Some of the orders and “just for fun” cookies from the past two weeks.
The soccer and football cookies were for my sons’ teams to celebrate the end of the fall season ⚽️ 🏈 (can you spot the football mistake? I was rushing and didn’t have time to correct it so I kept it at home with me 😋🤦🏻♀️)
The rest are kids’ birthday treats!
A baseball and soccer cake for a set of sporty twins ⚽️⚾️

Heading out to deliver some dessert table treats to a wedding at The Grecian Center 👰♀️🤵♂️Instead of a traditional wedding cake the couple requested some grab-n-go goodies for their guests to enjoy throughout the evening.
120 sugar cookies
96 mini cupcakes
A 9” 2-layer funfetti cake just for the bride and groom to share ☺️
Congratulations to Laura and Bret! 🍾
Love these tuxedo and wedding gown cookies made for an adorable German couple who got hitched in their home country last month and drove down from Novi to pick these up for their US wedding celebration this weekend 🥰
Congrats to Miri and Dave!! 🥂🤵♂️👰♀️
A low-key week with just a couple of birthday party orders coming out of my at-home bakery afforded me the time to say “thank you” to an Endodontics office for being awesome recently during a root canal! So grateful for my mother in law who’s a retired dental hygienist - of course she has a tooth-shaped cookie cutter I can borrow! 🦷
I’m pretty happy with my first attempt at an authentic tiramisu - I plan on perfecting this one and it just might end up on the menu soon!
This busy back to school week included:
🎂 A birthday cake for a peanut-free and tree nut-free family to enjoy
🧜🏻♀️ Mermaid tails for what sounds like a fun baby shower
🙂 Smiley faces for a new principal to pass out to her staff at the end of their first week of school
🇺🇸 And some mini cupcakes donated to the Downriver for Veterans to enjoy while volunteers paint their new space in Lincoln Park!
I love when I feel the cool air coming at night and realize that Fall is on the way! Sadie (my soon-to-be 12 year old daughter) made a delicious apple cider doughnut bundt cake on Friday and we had lots of apple cider left. So we found a recipe for apple cider pancakes and along with it came recipes for pan seared cinnamon apple topping and caramel apple cider syrup - I made it all and it was soo good! Thought I’d share the info here.
Side note: this is NOT a school day breakfast (unless you’re making it ahead of time and warming it up the day of…this took some time to make all three things!
(Recipe credit to Bake it with Love)
I enjoyed making treats for a few birthday boys this weekend! As I think about my own boys growing up, I loved the difference between the 3 year old and his fire trucks 🚒 and the 9 year old hockey player 🏒 ☺️
What a fun mix of traditional and unique cookies for a graduation party! I was told the graduate loves classic tie dye so I’m hoping she loves these as much as I do! I always appreciate the opportunity to try something new✌🏻😎🌈 Thanks, Anna!
And if you have a sec, help a baker out by commenting which color of writing you like best on top of the tie dye - blue 💙, white 🤍, or black 🖤! I polled a few folks yesterday and it was all across the board so I’m trying to get more opinions. Thanks for your help!!
It was a Wild Kratts and Wildcats kinda week around here!
The Cookie Mechanic updated their phone number.
Question of the day: Are you Team DC 🦇 or Team Marvel 🕸? Or do you think the universes can coexist🤯?
I don’t do this often, but I let my youngest (7) do whatever he wanted with some extra dough and icing - he was ecstatic and went with Star Wars cookie cutters and some simple decorating. He was determined to find the exact coloring for Yoda and Boba Fett and I seriously think he nailed it! I thought I’d share his formula for any cookie decorating enthusiasts who happen to be Star Wars fans on this page 🤷🏼♀️
Yoda: Equal parts AmeriColor Avocado and Wilton Moss Green
Boba Fett: One part AmeriColor Teal, one part AmeriColor Laurel, small knife dip of Wilton Moss Green and two parts AmeriColor Slate
Just dropped off some sweet party favors for a very excited 4 year old’s birthday party!! Have a great party today, Lucy!! 🌈🦄
What a wonderful feel-good way to get back into baking after a holiday and family vacation break! While on vacation I got a phone call asking if I could come up with cookies to bring to the caller’s final day of cancer treatment as a thank you to the cancer center staff, her “angels on Earth” - who could say no to such a request?! We worked together and came up with these cuties. I hope the cancer center staff enjoys their special treat tomorrow!
A few more grad party orders are heading out the door this morning! One of which included a slew of mini-cupcakes - cookies n’ cream, white, chocolate, and cherry chip 😋🥰🧁
Side note: just for fun, we experimented with some different flavor pairings with the extras and my family thinks that the chocolate cupcake with the fresh whipped cherry buttercream and a maraschino cherry on top is a real winner!
Hope all the rockstar dads out there had a great Father’s Day! I changed up the KISS logo for this gift set a customer was giving to her hubby today 🎸🎤😎🔥
That’s a wrap on this busy baking week! 17 dozen cookies decorated and out the door to help celebrate graduations, end of school year celebrations, birthdays, and book clubs reuniting (not pictured 🤦🏻♀️)!
Have a great weekend everyone!
I love every order that comes my way, but I have a special appreciation for customers who continuously allow me to help them celebrate their families’ big moments. Jen, congrats to Tyler and his 8th grade class on their graduation 👨🎓👩🎓 And Nicole, I hope you were able to surprise your brother for his big birthday! 🥳🎂
Welcome to June! Just baked the first of many graduation orders for the season. This year I’ll be working on cookies for preschool, 5th grade, 8th grade, and high school grads 👩🎓👨🎓
Thank you to all who have ordered - I’m booked through the summer, but if you have an occasion this Fall and you’re thinking about adding cookies to the celebration, I hope you’ll consider me to help you out! 🍪🎂🧁
