Weddings, Weddings and more Weddings!

Fall is always a busy time for weddings!  I just went to a wedding last weekend, I have another one this weekend and then I get married in October.  So, I of course had to make some wedding cookies!

Last weekend, my fiance's friend Mike got married so he gave these cookies to them at the rehearsal dinner.  

All wrapped up and ready to go!

Bouquets and Coloring

This is the first cookie bouquet that I have made.  They were for my fiance's Grandma.  

This present cookie was my favorite!  I also LOVE these colors together!  I was not sure what her favorite colors were, so I just made them colors I would like.  :-)  

All wrapped up and ready to go!  :-)

I got all my cookie bouquet supplies from Karen's Cookies.  I get a lot of my supplies from there.  The cookie sticks, the cookie boxes, the plastic bags (that are on each individual cookie and then a big one around the whole cookie bouquet) and all the food color.  They have a lot of great stuff, and you can get it in small quantities as well!  

These are only SOME of my food colors.  I have plenty more now.  They are AmeriColor.  They are a food color gel, so they won't make you icing (or whatever you are making) runny or taste funny.  Plus, they give an intense color so you only have to use a little bit of coloring to get your desired color.  Before I started using these, I was using the Wilton's food coloring in a little jar that you can find at Michael's Craft Store.  Well, if I had to color something red or black, I basically had to use the whole jar to get the correct color!  Now, I use a fraction of that to get the color I want.

It's been awhile...

Hi everyone! I know it has been awhile, but I am back and I have lots of exciting things coming up in the next few months.  Lots of cookies on the way!  

This was the first big cookie order that I shipped.  4 dozen.  I was a bit nervous because I had shipped a small order one other time, and a couple of the cookies broke.  These cookies were shipped from Pennsylvania to North Carolina and every single one made it there safely!  Phew!  

Enjoy!  Keep an eye out because I have lots of new and fun cookies coming this way!
