Captain America Cookies for a 3rd birthday party

My co-worker Becky's son Urijah is turning three in a few days, and is totally into superheroes.  Since his birthday is so close to the 4th of July, Captain America was a logical choice for his birthday cookies.   Hope he likes them!  Happy Birthday Ri!

Birthday cookies

I made these cookies for my husband's birthday a few weeks ago - in the excitement of preparing for our party, I didn't take any pictures!  Luckily, my mom took one - thanks mom!

Ice Cream Cone cookies!

My friend Sabrina asked me to make some "summery" cookies for a  meeting she was having at work.   After talking about it a bit, we agreed on these ice cream cone cookies, each personalized with a meeting participant's name.  I love using the edible markers to personalize the cookies - looks almost like a sharpie was used . . .

I made an extra set to bring to my office and share with my co-workers.  They all liked them, and I hope Sabrina's team does too!  Thank you for the donation, Sabrina!

Soccer cookies . . . . for two teams!

This was our final soccer weekend of the spring season . . . . featuring my 7 year old in a Fathers Day All-Star tournament, and my 12 year old's end of season party.     Those were both a good excuse for cookies! 

I made the All Stars players personalized cookies, and made matching ones for each of the players to give their dads after the last game.

a great bunch of boys :)

I made each member of my older son's team their own jersey cookie with their number on it.  

another great bunch of boys!

Skateboard cookies for my nephews

 My twin nephews just turned 11, and they are both skateboard fanatics!  My sister in law asked me to bake some cookies to use to decorate their birthday cakes (like I did for Noah's sports cake a few months ago).   

I had to hand-cut the skateboards because I couldn't find a skateboard cookie cutter.   The "Neff" and "Zoo York" cookies are their favorite skate brands.   Their last name is Haight . .. so I make the "SK8 like H8" cookies!  
My sister in law Kristy is another breast cancer fundraiser - she just did the Avon walk a few weeks ago - way to go Kris!     Hope the boys like their cookies!

Bug and Flower cookies

I made this happy bunch of bugs and flowers for my friends at the Compass School to share at their Kindergarten Celebration today.   Each of the kindergartners got their own personalized butterfly too!

Thank you for the donation, Ms. Jen and Ms. Allison!  Hope your celebration was a big success!

Lots of Logo Cookies!

My dear college friend Beth asked me to make cookies to help her celebrate the launch of her new organization, the Virginia Center for Health Innovation.    The mission of the Virginia Center for Health Innovation is to work in partnership with multiple stakeholders to accelerate the adoption of value-driven models of wellness and health care throughout Virginia.  With Beth at the helm, I have no doubt they will do great things for the citizens of the Commonwealth!

This was the largest custom order I've made to date.  Using edible images from Avery Cakes, I made 225 cookie favors for Beth and her team to share with their supporters.    

Production line underway

Packed up . . . almost ready to go!

Best of luck with your new venture, Beth, and thank you for your donation!
