My most recent order may go down in the book as some of my favorite cookies.
I'm fortunate to work with an amazing artist Brenda Bickerstaff-Stanley. Her paintings are beautiful and I was honored when she asked me to make cookies for a baby welcoming party.
Brenda painted this beautiful dresser to match the bedding in the nursery.
So I used Brenda's painting as inspiration for the cookies.
And look super, duper close at the bottom right of the tree on the bedding. See that tiny blue bird?
I fell in love with him and knew immediately he had to be put on a cookie.
I have a thing for blue birds and these cookies turned out so perfectly (for me).
I wish I could have put them on little cookie stands around my house for decoration. They were that pretty. Everything turned out right. Icing color, consistency and the fact that I was able to put shiny 'snaps' on them. And let's be honest....a cookie with something shiny on it is always prettier.
I also made some simple white, pink and yellow baby bottle
s with the baby's name (Chesney) on them. My camera decided everyone of the pictures I took needed to be blurry, but I guess that's what I get for rushing to take tons of pictures in less than 3 minutes before running out of the house to go to the midnight showing of The Hunger Games. (Phew...that was a long sentence).
Anyway, I hope you love these cookies as much as I do.
And be sure to head over to Brenda's website to see her beautiful, beautiful artwork.
Thanks for your order Brenda!
