Weekly Cookie Recap

Happy Valentines Week, friends! What a wonderful week full of cookies this has been for me. My house is bursting with the smell of fresh baked cookies decorated for all kinds of wonderful events this week.. don’t y’all just love the smell (and taste!) of fresh baked cookies?!

 

Starting this week I had Valentine cookie pickups. I offered several different cookie sets for everyone to choose from. They made a perfect, affordable, gift for teachers and kids that everyone was sure to love!  Locals, please visit my Facebook  page to order cookies for your next holiday or special event!

This was my first year to do Valentines cookies. I began this Cookie endeavor in May of 2017 so this is all new territory for me. But with any new cookie and cookie holiday, comes a challenge, and that is exactly why I wanted to get into this craft.

 

Moving on, this next set was for a preschool Valentine’s Day party a few days after Valentines. I used my SweetSugarbelle heart cutter to create these. I love the sizing of these cutters. I also love the combination of these colors. They look soft and cohesive.  On these, and all of my other Valentine cookies, I used sprinkles from Sprinkled.  Remember, you can read my review on these sprinkles over on my post: Collaboration with Sprinkled + A Sprinkle Mix GIVEAWAY. And don’t forget you can use my code, Brittany20, and get 20% off!

I also did sports cookies for a sweet little boy’s birthday! He loves basketball, football, soccer, and baseball. I was so glad I could make these for him and hope he loves them as much as I do!

 

This mermaid set has got to be one of my favorite mermaid sets. I love all the details, especially the fin details on the mermaid tail that I achieved with my airbrush.  If you look close, you can see glitter in the name cookie. Plus who doesn’t love these beautiful mermaid colors?!

I also got to make cookies for a 30th birthday bash in Nashville!  I loved the super girly colors and Nashville inspired cowgirl boots and guitar I used.  Not to mention, the state of Tennessee turned out so cute.  I could see this cookie being perfect for other events like tailgates for UT games, great for someone moving, or even great for a graduate!

This last set was for a friend from high school. I just have to stop here just a minute and tell you how much a friend supporting your little business means. Seriously! It is the ultimate compliment to have a friend buy your cookies. Okay back to her beautiful baby shower cookies.. I love the theme and colors and think the pot of gold is perfect in pink.  The pot of gold was made from a honey pot cookie cutter, my sweet cookie friend suggested it and I think it works perfectly! Congratulations sweet friend on your sweet girl’s upcoming arrival!

That’s all for this week. Thank y’all for catching up each week for my weekly recaps.

I’d love to know where my readers are reading my posts.. leave a comment below with your state or country!

Collaboration with Sprinkled + A Sprinkle Mix GIVEAWAY

I am collaborating with Sprinkled for my Valentine’s cookies!

I was sent 3 of the most beautiful sprinkle mixes to incorporate into my cookies and, ya’ll, look at them!!  As a cookier and baker I’m easily amused by sprinkles.  They are so beautiful and it took me days to even want to open the package because I just wanted to keep them for myself.  But I’m so very glad I took the plunge and cracked these babies open.

Cookiers and bakers, I did not experience any color bleeding with these sprinkles.  They kept their colors perfectly on my royal icing as well as my butter cream.  Also, they get softer once in the icing.  They were a bit crunchy right out of the bag, but after my cookies were decorated my husband and I both tried one and sure enough the sprinkles didn’t have that hard crunch you get with some sprinkles.  Including the little gold nonpareils, so soft!

The first mix is called Love Actually.  It has the perfect mix of pink, red, and white and a few glitter heart quins mixed into it.  I used these on my Valentine’s cookies and I love how they really tied in well with the colors I had previously selected.

Love Actually

The second mix is called Wild in Love.  This is actually probably my most favorite mix.  I love all of the colors and I love that I was able to use this mix on cookies specific to little boys.  It’s a perfect blend and says “Happy Valentine’s” without the pink colors boys tend to not enjoy.  Plus I’m about 1000% sure I could use these on cookies for this coming Spring and Summer.  I think they’d be great on a Trolls themed party.. who needs cookies for this theme? Let me know because I’ve got some sprinkles for that!

Wild in Love

This last set doesn’t actually have a name.  It’s new!  And Shannon, from Sprinkled, wants my readers and followers to help name it!  To enter a name you think is best suited for this set, comment on this post, comment on my Instagram post with these sprinkles, or go to my Facebook page and comment on the post with these sprinkles.  Simply tell me what name you think fits best.  I will then narrow down the best 4 names and have a poll on my Facebook page for everyone to vote.  The winner will have these sprinkles named after their suggestion AND they will receive a bag of these sprinkles sent from Shannon.  How awesome is that?!  So please comment with your suggestions.  I will take suggestions until Monday, February 12th then post the poll on my Facebook so be sure you go and vote!

Suggest a Name for this Mix

Here’s the best part about all of this, even if you don’t win a Sprinkle Mix named after your suggestion you’re still going to get 20% off your purchase in her Etsy Shop by using my code, Brittany20.  This is a huge savings for anyone needing sprinkles, you do not have to be a baker or cookier like me to enjoy some fancy sprinkles.  Trust me.  You could use these in pancakes, on top of ice cream, not just baked goods.  Go check out her page, I promise you that you will love these as much as I do!

Check out my cupcakes I made using the sprinkle mixes.  Which mix is your favorite?  I’d love it if you’d comment below and let me know!
