This week was refreshingly calm compared to last week. I only had a few orders of cookies to make.....and most were just small groupings of cookies. It was so nice to relax a bit and take my time. I think I've increased my speed after last week's marathon. lol I was able to do most cookies faster this week. I guess I need to have more marathons so I can build up my speed, because most of the time.....I am slow as a turtle when I decorate. My husband says I'd never make a profit if I had a business because I take way too much time to decorate my cookies.
Here's some sample cookies I did for a friend's boss. We're both hoping he'll make a big order for his company to celebrate a great first quarter. :) (I included the actual logo up on top above the four cookies.)
This set will be a bouquet for someone who is retiring. How did I ever live without that oval scalloped cutter? I love how it brings a group of cookies together.
Another small order........ girly butterflies.
And this last one was an experiment. I had this cookie left over.....so I decided to try a lacy plaid quilt-like cookie. I took this pic, and then tried to add stitches with a marker.....but the icing was too wet and I messed it all up. So I cut it into pieces and shared it with the fam. Jill was walking out the door with a smile on her face and a part of a freshly decorated cookie in her hand. :)
I love the lacy look.....but it sure does take lots of time to add all those little details. :o)
Next week I only have one order. Yippee! I'm excited about taking some time to get all my decorating stuff organized. I've bought a bunch of totes and plastic drawers to put all my cutters in (I have so many, they won't fit in the kitchen cabinet anymore! lol)
Have a great weekend everyone.....
