These were a quick job for me. I was asked very nicely to do up birthday cookies for a friend's sister who LOVES clowns. Since people either love or hate clowns, I wanted to make sure these were as friendly as I could possibly make them. These came out exactly the way I sketched them. I love the colors and texture of the hair.
I found out after telling my friend about the face idea that she loved it BUT her sister loved clown hats for some reason. This one was just for her, 3 silly clown hats on one cookie :) I can't wait to hear how they go over.

These were just a quick set done for a little boy's 4th birthday. His dad just introduced him to Super Mario Brothers and he immediately fell in love so they decided to throw him a Super Mario Brother's them birthday party. His dad asked if I could make a set of cookies just for him (although I'm sure he shared with Mom and Dad).

(P.S. The polo shirts with the sauce stain is a joke with my dad. Every time he cooks, something gets on his shirt.)
I also had to throw in another set of regular vanilla Father's Day cookies... Father's Day and Birthday, on the same weekend, what was I to do.

You may remember that I did cookies for Ollie's 1st Birthday last year, they were the first birthday cookies with all the images of things that started with the letter "O," if you forgot you can see them here. Well this year the bar was raised. They asked for Cars theme cookies, more specifically... Lightening McQueen, Mater, and Sally. Williams Sonoma had these great Cars cookies cutters, but no Sally. I decided to modify Finn and give him a gender switch, I think she came out pretty cute. It's har to tell but Lightening is actually a red velvet flavored cookie, I loved the bright red color it made the dough. These were involved, I'm not going to say I'd be willing to do them everyday... but these were fun :)

This was an order I couldn't pass up. These were for a coworker of my husband who wanted to surprise her boyfriend with some retro video game themed cookies. We did some sneaky conversation starters and found out his favorite games growing up were the NES gold copy of The Legend of Zelda, and Super Metroid for SNES. I think I went a little crazy on the small cookies but I just couldn't stop... Of course you see the Zelda and Metroid ones but there is also Mario question block, one-up and growth mushrooms, invincible star, Pac Man (with food), Portal, Kid Icarus, Mega Man, NES controller, SNES controller, and the large "stars" are his age with his gamer tag :)
She brought them to him at work and they were a huge hit. I had so many ideas that I couldn't do. I think there is going to be a sequel to this set ;)

The theme was animals and polka dots. I have a set of vintage circus animals that I love to use whenever I can. I tried to match the large dot pastel sprinkles by Wilton since we were using them in other deserts, next time I'll rethink the yellow... the dots were a little hard to see when wet :) Each person got to take home a "R" onesie and some of the baby shower themed bites (and maybe some chocolate to fill out the bag).
