Minnie Mouse Cookies

Did these last night. Used a plain Mickey Mouse cutter and topped it with a second cookie for the bows. To make the bows, I used the bottom section of a Wilton butterfly cutter and cut both the top and the bottom of the bow with the same part of the cutter. Worked fantastically. Was very pleased with how these came out.

Peanuts Cookies for a Birthday Party - Good Grief!!

My friend Amy asked me if I could do Peanuts themed cookies for her grandson's first birthday and I, of course, said yes. I knew I had the Snoopy cutters that Michael's sold a couple of years ago, but couldn't recall if I'd grabbed the Charlie Brown and Lucy ones then, too. Turned out I had not. So, I  found some images that I had planned to use as my guide. I literally cut out the images and was prepared to trace the forms onto each cookie. THEN, I ran across this Haniela's tutorial video and knew exactly how I would do these. What a time saver and wow at how they came out! Sorry for my crappy photos!

Winter Wonderland ("One"derland) First Birthday Cookies

Did another round of Winter "One"derland first birthday cookies for my cousin's daughter's daughter's (guess it would have been easier to say my cousin's granddaughter) first birthday. I ran across a double plastic set of snowflakes on clearance after Christmas - paid all of .26 for the two cutters, so I was able to add an additional type of snowflake to the mix. I actually think I like the shape of the new snowflake cutter better than the nesting set of Wilton ones I have.

Fabulous Birthday Cookies

No, I am not calling my work fabulous, but you'll get it when you see them. My friend Beverly's birthday was January 1st, but the poor thing was at the beach to ring in the new year and celebrate her birthday, so I gave her these on Monday, January 4th. I told her that part of her gift was that I seemed to have had a case of number dyslexia on the number cookies! But seriously, I was shocked to learn she was turning the number that's the reverse of 26! So here are Beverly's cookies in all of their fabulousness.
