Animal Print Birthday Cookies

Celebrating her first birthday in her new home of Kelowna (I am only slightly jealous!), Teresa's husband arranged for me to send birthday cookies.  She sent me a message to let me know that it was a great little taste of home, but suggested that next time I tell her husband to order 2 dozen!

Here are the Animal Print Cookies at their final destination - Kelowna!! Awesome, thanks for sharing these Teresa!!

Baby Shower Cookies for Twins

There are many reasons why I love my chosen profession, but the biggest reason is my wonderful customers, some of whom have become more like friends.  I met Jan more than 2 years ago and since then I have learned so much about her family through cookies!  Not long ago I made bridal shower cookies for Alison and now she and her husband are expecting twins!!  A boy and a girl!  I am so very excited for them.  Here are the cookies I made for Alison's baby shower.  Jan promised to let me know as soon as the babies arrive and I can't wait to hear the happy news.

Baptism Dress Cookie

Planning her daughter's baptism led Lisa to me.  She wanted a baptism gown cookie for each of her guests and after some trial and error, I designed a custom cutter to fulfill this request.  Lisa is a wonderfully kind lady and sent me a note after delivery to tell me how happy she was with the cookies.

Congratulations to the whole family, especially little Dallas, on the special day!

Musical Piano Welcome Cookies

As a family, we have always encouraged our girls to love and learn music.  In addition to two guitar players in the family, we now have three people taking piano lessons - the girls and me!  The girls' piano teacher contacted me and said she wanted to give each one of her students a welcome-to-the-new-season gift and we figured out cookies were the perfect choice.  Here is hoping for a wonderful 2013-2014 season at the Piano Music Studio!

Thanksgiving Cookies Pre-Order

Due to an incredibly busy schedule in the month of October that already includes orders for more than 1000 cookies during the second half of the month followed by a trip to Nova Scotia with my mom, I am now taking pre-orders for my popular tray of Thanksgiving cookies, an annual Sweet Handmade tradition!  I will be able to accept only very few orders.  They will be available for pickup on Saturday, October 12 at the Bradford Farmers' Market between the hours of 8 and 1.

This beautiful and delicious tray of 18 large cookies costs $60.  Not only would these beautiful cookies enhance each of the place settings at your holiday meal, they would also make a lovely addition to a dessert table or a super hostess gift!  Place your order today.

Cottage Themed Cookies

In addition to celebrating her parents' anniversary with Muskoka cottage themed cookies to remember their former cottage, Denise's family was also celebrating her dad's birthday.  Their new cottage is Lake Erie, close to a lighthouse, with lots of seagulls and Denise's dad loves to sail.  This is the cottage set I came up with and the cookies were a huge success.
