When I told Joan I had an order for 100 Christmas cookies that were to be delivered before Thanksgiving, she replied, "Don't you remember, we don't sell Christmas cookies"! Of course I didn't remember or I wouldn't have promised the next 70 I had orders for. Come to find out though, she's taken a few orders herself.
Anyway, I've turned down quite a few orders (sorry cookie fans), we like to have time to do our more traditional cookie baking.
This little guy went off to his annual trip to Smith Island with 99 of his closest cookie friends. The cancer ribbons were a personal touch, just for Bee.

Laura, one of our biggest fans, ordered football cookies for her son's end-of-year party via e-mail. I was baking acorns, so to make life easier, baked the footballs at the same time. I knew since both were brown, decorating would go a lot faster.
As we talked on the phone one day, Laura mentioned when she'd like to pick up her football bouquet. Bouquet? I never even thought to put them on sticks. Being the good sport she is, she said it didn't matter. Being determined to please one of my favorite customers, I knew I had to add sticks. I little icing to act like glue on the back did the trick, not too pleasing to the eye, but delicious! I told one of my kids it was white glue, it's non-toxic you know--edible. I still haven't told him that I was just kidding.

Cake pops for sale? Not usually!! Since cake pops need to be made at the last minute, it is not something that I can say yes to very often. It depends on my work schedule. It did put a different spin on all the baby cookies that Audrey and I are making. Hope everyone at the shower enjoys them!

When Myrta asked on Thursday if I could make a birthday bouquet for Monday, I told her totally impossible unless they could be fall colors as I was planning on starting my fall decorating. So these are what I came up with. A bouquet for the birthday girl and minis to share with guests.
Thanks for your donation to Operation Second Chance.

Cookies in a jar are the newest fad in cookie decorating; I've been waiting to try them myself. I'm sold! The possibilities are endless. I'm quite pleased with how these turned out. We're now in the market for cheap cookie jars. This jar is one of eight that Joan and I found at a yard sale--deal of the day!
These are for my friend Bee who is all too familiar with the symbolism of pink ribbons.

Kitty is turning 90!
Her daughter describes her as an avid reader, hospital volunteer, bridge player, and has a heart of gold.
This was one of those orders that I was free to make whatever I wanted. So I thought I would incorporate some books into the bunch. Thanks Kerry for your repeat business.

Is it okay to use a gift before you give it? Well, I just browsed through it and took a few pictures, didn't leave any stains.
Bakerella (www.bakerella.com) just released this book and I knew the minute I saw it I had to get it for Joan. I am cake pop challenged, she's a pro. There are some really cute ideas in the book, lots of tips too--maybe if I follow a few I can get better at cake popping. With Halloween and Christmas approaching, I thought I would share my two favorite ideas from the book. I hope someone makes them for me :)

We have many cookie fans that we never get to meet. Our friend and neighbor, Pam, has delivered lots of cookies to the nurses at SGAH, so I never had the pleasure of meeting some of our biggest fans. That changed last week when I became a patient of theirs. I made these to thank the staff for their excellent care.
It was nice meeting everyone, hope I don't see you again :)

These are a nice cookie compliment to a crab feast Anna is hosting for friends. I made the "button cookies" to help break up the color of all that red. I'm happy with the way they turned out. As you can tell, I couldn't quite figure out how I'd platter them, I'll leave that up to Anna.

Have you ever seen that show? It's one of those I sometimes watch and don't understand why I wasted an hour. Anyway, these remind me of that show, just without the annoying friends, realtives and bridezillas.
Thanks to Kim for your order, and to Laura for keeping me company during this decorating session.
