Stenciled Birthday Cookies

 My friend Melanie's birthday was this week and today I gave her these when we got together for lunch. She shared them with all the friends there and they seemed to be a hit!
 I used my Silhouette machine to design and cut the stencils. The designs are done in royal icing on a flooded base of glaze. I like using both kinds of icings for each of their best qualities.

I matched the colors to some pink and orange and gold notecards I've had for a long time and I've wanted to "cookiefy" them. It was a pretty good match!
Happy Birthday, Melanie!

Easter Cookie Class

Easter is early this year and it's coming fast! We'll be making a dozen of these cuties in our class at Sweet. The chicks with the sugar for fluff are my favorites. We'll be creative and design our eggs as fancy or simple as you want!
Happy Easter!

Loopy Lucky Leprechauns

These cuties are what we'll be making at my next decorating class at Sweet. The loopy shamrock was a design from various cookie makers online. The leprechaun idea is from Sweet Sugarbelle. I used an upside-down cupcake cutter to make his happy little face. And the lucky horseshoe cookie is brought to you by the letter U! 
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
