I was excited to put together this blog post to document a busy cookie week . . . then I realized this post was sort of a big deal - it's my 100th post! I am sure not too many people have read all 100 posts (except maybe my mom - hi mom!), but it's a big deal to me! I have really enjoyed turning this little cookie/baking hobby into a successful fundraiser for a cause important to me, and also enjoyed improving my skills and meeting wonderful people along the way.
As the title says, this was a busy cookie week. I had two orders - for a baby girl and a thank you platter for a dog walker - plus I took a platter to a party. In the process of making these, I tried a couple of new things.
I used my new Kopykake to do some doggie portraits. . . . fun! This doggie platter was for a friend to give a client who is a dog-walker. Thank you for the donation, Terri!
In this baby girl platter, I used a new stork bundle cutter I've been wanting to try, and I also tried "gluing" ribbons to bib cookies with royal icing. Fun again! Thank you for the donation, Angela!
Speaking of fun, this wine glass platter was for a fun group of ladies. A friend from high school put together a monthly "women on wine" wine tasting group. Each month, we'll meet to learn about and taste a type of wine. I missed the first month, but this past week, I was lucky enough to attend the "Pinot Noir" night. We had a great time tasting a variety of pinots, learning about the varietal, and chatting with some lovely friends. I used to be in a book club, which was really just an excuse to get together and chat and drink wine . . . I'm liking this group, which cuts straight to the chase :)
Now for the giveaway. . . to celebrate my 100th post, I will give away a platter of cookies at random to someone who comments (hoping I get some comments here . . . ) Leave me a comment with your favorite cookie theme, and you just might win!
