I loved making these cookies! They were made to match the plates and napkins at a little girl's 1st birthday party. The green looks a little more obnoxious in the picture than it did in real life. I think I did a better job for this girl's 1st birthday than I did for my own daughter's 1st! The problem with doing cakes and cookies for my own kids is I have to do all the other stuff too. For Kate's last birthday I didn't even do the cake. Just got it at Sam's. But you won't find personalized cookies like this at Sam's!

Here are some of the cookies I made for a very important 4 year old's graduation. First time I've decorated the sandwich cookies. Actually, it was the 1st time the sandwich cookies left the house:) It's dangerous for me to have homemade buttercream frosting laying around. Yummy.

Family picture on graduation day. Time flies! I can't believe I'll be sending him off to kindergarten in 2 months. We shopped for a desk for him because "big kids have lots of homework". Yesterday he easily agreed to doing some reading and math because "I have to practice for kindergarten." I would love to know exactly what he thinks is going to happen in kindergarten!

Hello Kitty Cake

My 1st carved cake covered in fondant. I love Hello Kitty so I was very excited when I had the chance to make this for my class. I have my final exam cake left to get the very valuable Wilton certificate that I can hang on my wall. Or fold up and find in my car a few months from now.
