VW Bus Cookies

I was very excited to hand deliver these cookies!  I made them for my brother who lives in the Netherlands and has a thing about VW busses.  My family and I spent 3 and half weeks in Amsterdam and France this July, what an amazing holiday we had.

Wedding Cookies

These cookies are very special.  Made for a beautiful lady who was my oldest daughter's grade 3 teacher (my oldest is now in grade 12!)  She got married in the Maritimes and brought these cookies for place settings.

Third Birthday Cookies

For Nathan's 3rd birthday, his daddy ordered cookies.  I flooded the cookies and was happily piping the number 2 on the fourth cookie when I suddenly thought "isn't he turning 3?!"

Luckily I was able to salvage the cookies and went on to finish the order correctly!

Happy birthday Nathan!!

Throwback Thursday - Hockey Jersey Cookies

I started making hockey jersey cookies years and years ago.  I can't believe anyone would have bought them, but they did!  The delicious taste kept bringing them back and I learned to make the cookies look much better!

Sweet Pea Baby Shower Cookies (With Matching Cake) for Twins

Another great project with Tobi Goldspink Cakes.  Teresa wanted cookies and a matching cake to celebrate the upcoming birth of her brother's twins, a boy and a girl.  I could provide the cookies and I recommended Tobi who could provide the cake.  Teresa told us how many guests she was having and Tobi and I did the rest!  As usual, working with Tobi was great and since I am a customer as well as her friend, I know Tobi's cake tasted as incredible as it looked!!  Oh, and my cookies were amazing too.  I know, I've tasted a few!

Thinking About Easter Cookies

It is not too early to think about Easter (the first weekend in April).  My designs and prices are still to be finalized, although these cuties will be an option, but let me know now you are interested in placing an order and I will save a spot on my calendar.  Lately, some of my savvy customers do just that because my cookie calendar is usually booked solid with customer orders making it difficult to offer seasonal sets.

Kung Hei Fat Choy - Year of the Sheep/Goat Cookies

Kung Hei Fat Choy!  Happy Chinese New Year!  Today marks the most important Chinese holiday and 2015 marks the year of the Sheep or Goat.

Elizabeth contacted me for cookies to help her little guy Charley celebrate his heritage with his friends and what better way than cookies?  In addition to a cute goat on half of the cookies, the other half have the Chinese character that means friendship!  I loved making these cookies and received the best compliment from Elizabeth's husband who thought I did an excellent job with the Chinese character.  I have the best customers!!

Circus Themed Cookies and Cake

Working with Tobi of Tobi Goldspink Cakes is always great.  She is such a professional and always creates the most beautiful cakes.  This time we worked together to create a cake and matching cookies for our client Elly.  We were giving lots of creative license, but Elly did have a colour scheme in mind that we were thrilled to use because it was so beautiful!

While Tobi and I met in person (over lunch) to discuss the design and colour scheme, we still worked independently in our own business kitchens on the cake and cookies.  It wasn't until we brought the elements together to photograph that we realized we had created something fabulous!  Our client was thrilled!

Triathlon Cookies

It has become a tradition for me to host a brunch with my triathlon training friends.  This year we started the day with a mini winter triathlon that included swimming in the pool, spinning on spin bikes and running on the track at the Bradford Leisure Centre.  It was a lot of fun and after our event we started by handing out Sweet Handmade Cookie Medals to the winners.

Then we gathered back at my place for some food and socializing.  Each year I create a set of  triathlon cookies to enjoy and this year was no exception.  Luckily the entire group has a great sense of humour so I could add some "triathlon fail" cookies!

Luckily there were enough cookies for my friends to bring home to their children and here is one super adorable picture of a future triathlete enjoying his!
