The end of summer is near…

Hi kids,

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, 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.
