I’m usually asked to make very complicated design for kids birthdays like Angry Birds, Spiderman and Ninja Turtles. So when a client asks for something simple, like dinosaurs, for their kid’s birthday, I am grateful. Like, SUPER grateful. Thank you to the little boy who wanted something simple. Hope you had the happiest of birthdays!
…or in this case, a cookie that looks like a cupcake?
In cookie format!
I often want to say no when a client requests character cookies mainly because it’s hard to do and they don’t always come out great. This time, though, I had to say yes because a) I love Spiderman and b) making spiderweb cookies are one of my favourite techniques. They’re super easy but eye-catching. And I often only get the chance to make them for Halloween. Glad I said yes because these turned out great.
As an adult, we don’t often have themes for our birthday parties. It usually only involves a couple phone calls, a dinner reservation, and a cake. I was lucky enough to celebrate a friend’s 30th birthday party with a “Sex and the City” theme. It was amazing! So elaborate with every detail in check, including fashion-themed cookies that even Carrie Bradshaw would love.
Note: with a few minor tweaks and additions, these would make great bachelorette party treats!
I can’t believe it’s the end of August already. More than that, I can’t believe Baked for Good has been up and running for almost nine months now. I’m so grateful for the support that Baked for Good has been receiving. It’s really been quite overwhelming.
Since it’s been a while since my last post, I thought I’d share some pictures of what I’ve been up to since the last post.
I was asked by a friend to create these 21st Birthday Cookies for a young fashionista. Since I’m a total girly girl at heart, these cookies were so fun to make!
Next up, I was asked to make “Good Luck” cookies with no specific directions as to how the customer wanted them to look. I tried to look up ideas online and came across a bunch of images of horseshoe cookies or shamrocks. They looked great but had too much of a St. Patty’s day vibe. I came up with these “Good Luck” Stars and they were a hit!
I had a little bit of dough left and some extra icing to decorate so I had a little fun and created these little guys:
My aunt gifted me with a set of 30+ cookies cutters, most of which I have yet to use. I was dying to find an occasion to use these cute little elephants but when it comes to sugar cookies, do you really need an occasion? My answer is always NO, especially with a cookie this cute.
These little onesies made their way all the way to California to congratulate my cousin and his wife on their new baby.
Lastly, I found the recipe for these Maple Chocolate Chip Pancake Cupcakes on one of the blogs I visit regularly, www.kevinandamanda.com. I tried to resist them but this is proof that resistance is futile. I couldn’t get them out of my head and in the end, they were as good as I imagined.
It’s been a hectic few weeks around here but not too hectic for baking cupcakes! I’ve been meaning to try out new recipes but, lucky for me, Baked for Good has had a great start and I’ve been busy making orders!
Two weeks ago, I made these delicious birthday cupcakes for a friend that I needed to share with you guys.
They look pretty good if I do say so myself! haha
I’ve got a lot of new flavours lined up for trial so be sure to check back here for updates.
