Christmas Minis!

 I made a whole bunch more of these Christmas minis. Aren't they cute?! The round jars were perfect for gifts.
I got some ideas for the designs from various cookie makers so - thanks to them for the inspiration.
This picture almost made it on our Christmas card - I just ran out of time this year - but I think I'll plan to do something like it next year! It kinda looks like our family.
Merry Christmas!

Christmas Cookie Class for Kids

Tomorrow morning I'll be teaching a cookie decorating class at Sweet! and this one is for KIDS! I think it's a great idea and I'm looking forward to it. These are the samples for the class.
Aren't these gingerbread boys cute? I am using Bake at 350's technique for the swirling peppermint candies. And who doesn't love candy canes at Christmas? This is going to be a fun class!

Music Notes

We took these music note cookies to Justin's piano recital last Saturday. Everyone liked how they looked but they LOVED how they tasted! They were simple to do, but the 3 colors made them festive. Ryan was my helper on this project - he's getting pretty good at flooding!

Christmas Cookie Class

Yesterday I taught another cookie decorating class at Sweet! It was so fun. The participants this time were happy to learn and did such a great job. Some had never ever done any decorating but their cookies turned out very nice. Here are the samples I did for the class.

The poinsettias were really fun to do because they looked better if they weren't perfect! :)
And we've scheduled 2 more classes for kids during the Christmas Break so I will be working on those and posting pictures soon!
