I cannot express how much fun I had making these adorable tea party cookies for Harper's 2nd birthday! I love everything about them and I hope Harper and her little friends will too.
We're accepting orders for this Year's Christmas design "The Tree Trimmers." This set would make a great gift for teachers or hostesses. Perhaps a stocking stuffers? Or the perfect gift for that person you never know what to get.
Each set cost $9.95 which includes shipping and handling. All you have to do is fill out a form with the address and name of the recipient and we'll do the rest. All orders will be mailed the week before Christmas and will arrive fashionably wrapped with a holiday greeting card revealing the senders name. Doesn't get any easier!
If you weren't able to get out to the Bazaar this weekend, here's a little peak at what ya missed!
Last night was my first public event. It was such a fun experience. For the event, I made nutella fudge brownies, vanilla cupcakes, chocolate cookies, and sugar cookies. For the display my husband and I did a little antique shopping and recycling of items we already own. With $20 cash in my pocket, we stopped by Lisa's Antiques on Mantoloking Rd. where we found two glass candlesticks, a glass cake plate, two lace table runners, and a large basket. Also I purchased two new, well old, cookie cutters that I plan to use for a new set of cookies. We purchased the whole lot for $15. I already had a small wooden tea tray, a large doily, and Tim's old baseball card holder and all these combined with my antique finds became my event display.
The antique table runners were laid out on the counter where everything was set up. I used the doily to dress up the little wooden tea tray and filled it with tea time cookies.Three of my own dinner/dessert plates were stacked in between the candlesticks to make a tier for the cupcakes. The Cake plate became a brownie stand and Tim spray painted his baseball card holder to make a display for the round flower cookies. The little ledges of the baseball card holder propped the cookies up for better viewing. The large basket made an excellent vehicle for transporting the cookies which I wrapped in a tablecloth for protection. I was so pleased with the overall look of our display. Not only was it very affordable, it was so vintage, which I adore.
We had a great evening and sold lots of a sweet yumminess to happy customers.
My mother has a lovely collection of antique costume jewelry and I wanted to find a way to incorporate some of the unique designs into my cookies. For my wedding I had purchased food grade mold making material in hopes of using it to design my wedding cake but with time crunches and so many other details, this never happened. However, all that perfectly good mold plastique was sitting on a shelf in our laundry room collecting dust and that was just not ok. Yesterday I went to work making molds of six gorgeous brooches and this is the first completed cookie inspired by my mom's favorite brooch. I used fondant, also saved from my wedding, to get the mold impression. More to come :)
