I can’t WAIT for the upcoming Labor Day weekend. Not only because we get a three-day weekend, but because it also marks the unofficial day of fall. And nothing says “Fall” more than pumpkins. This week I was excited to see them slowly popping up in grocery aisles. Also, this weekend is when Starbucks begins serving pumpkin spice lattes. Pumpkins and pumpkin spice flavoring are the ultimate power duo for getting anyone in the autumn mood.
To accompany the haunted houses I showed last week, I also made these decorated ghost cookies. I should mention though, these aren’t your typical ghosts. I designed these ghost cookies to be more sassy than they are spooky.
I’m really excited to showcase the new Halloween cookie cutter designs for this year!
I know it’s only mid-August, and it might seem too early to think about Halloween, especially in the middle of this summer heat. However, with any of the major cookie holidays, I wanted provide Halloween cookie cutter designs in the shop early to beat the rush. Hopefully, this will also help give ample time to start planning your own Halloween cookie options for the upcoming season.
As some kids dreaded the thought of going back to school, I used to relish it. It wasn’t because I couldn’t wait to see my friends again after a summer off, or was eager to learn new stuff. It was mostly because I loved the thought of getting new school supplies.
Remember the apple cut-outs from my previous post for spiced apple cookies? Well, I want to share a few ideas on various ways you could decorate them. Mainly, I wanted to focus this post on how you can transform them into nerdy apple cookies (with a slightly hipster look to them, as well).
Summer has been pretty slow around here. No complaints though. This relaxing downtime is a nice change of pace from the hustle of holiday cookie-making.
The extra free time made it the perfect time to try new things and experiment with a few ideas I had tucked away. With back-to-school season just a few weeks away (Crazy, right?), I was thinking it would be fun to try a new cut-out cookie flavor to complement the start of the new school year. These spiced apple cut-out cookies seemed like just the thing.
Hi, I’m Mike and I’m a procrastinator. (“Hi, Mike.”)
I truly intended for these nerdy cupcake cookies to be ready for Teacher Appreciation week last month. But as Life tends to happen, I couldn’t find the time to fit it in. Also, it didn’t help that the rising summer temps made me less motivated to turn on the oven.
Ahoy there, matey! (Did that greeting come off as more “sea captain” and less “pirate?” Hopefully so, because I have a fun nautical set to show you!) The idea of a nautical cookie set came after finishing up my previous shark post. Continuing on with another ocean series, instead of grinning fishes from last time, I have a dressed-up sea mammal for you today!
Growing up, there were a handful of movies that instilled an irrational fear in me for years. Stephen King’s It made me terrified of clowns. (This fear still lingers to this day.) Child’s Play made me hate being alone in a room with any toy doll that could “talk.” (Talking dolls aren’t cute; they’re frightening.) And the Jaws movie made me avoid the deep end of swimming pools in fear of a possible shark attack. My over-active, childhood imagination definitely got the best of me. Don’t worry, I’m more normal now.
