Baking Through The Holidays

The holidays may be long gone, but through the chaos of shopping, wrapping and tradition, we found time to squeeze in a little baking.  Because you can’t show up at a holiday party empty-handed!  For Thanksgiving, we created pumpkin and fall leaf cookies, perfecting simplicity and exploring new techniques. For Christmas, we found that the perfect ice blue makes a huge difference in our detailed snowflake cookies and that a basic tree design can still impress.

A Turtle-tastic Baby Shower

We recently made our Izzie’s Sugar Cookies for a baby shower with a fun theme – turtles!  After experimenting with about 20 different shades of green, we were finally able to find the perfect ones to make these little guys pop. Not only did the children grab these cookies in stacks, but they also served as decor for the shower, acting as centerpieces on the tables.
