Happy Birthday from SweetSugarBelle :)

A very dear friend helped me come up with this
whole idea of birthday week for CookieCrazie.
We were planning some other things for our blogs when I realized
that my blog birthday was coming up.

What fun it has been to pull together lots of
different things to celebrate the event.

But you know....it's not really about the blog.....
as much as it is about the people & relationships
surrounding the cookie community.
WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL people.
I've met many.....
and feel like I'm meeting at least one new one every day.

One of my bestie cookie friends is sweet Callye.

She agreed to help me celebrate by writing a guest post
for CookieCrazie's special day.

No need for introduction.....
I'll hand this post over to dear SweetSugarBelle. :)

Today is a very big day for my friend Pam. 
 I “met” Pam three years ago when
I began my OWN COOKIE ADVENTURE
 Now, four years later I am excited to help her
celebrate the birthday of her blog, Cookie Crazie.

As I mentioned before, I have known Pam since
almost the beginning of my cookie adventure.
She was one of the first cookiers to seek me out,
encourage me, and become a friend.

Just a few years later,
it's really mind-blowing to me that a simple
Flickr comment has turned into a lifelong friend. 

Anyway, today I'm here to celebrate
CookieCrazie's birthday the best way I know how.
COOKIE STYLE!

In honor of this special day
I'm going to show you how to make
number cookies with birthday hats.
These can be adapted to any number you like,
but today, of course,
I am making the number four!

To make these cookies you will need:
·      White piping and flood icing
·         Pink piping and flood icing
·         Stiff orange piping and flood icing
·         Yellow flood icing
To create this cookie I connected a star point to a “4”.

Begin by outlining the cookie as shown below.
 I used a marker to pre-mark the center of the cookie as a guide.

Next fill the “4” with pink flood icing.
 Let the cookie dry for an hour or two before moving on.


 Next, fill the “hat” and add flowers using the wet on wet technique.
 Since the flower detail is a bit small,
I used bottles like THESE fitted with a #1.5 PME tip.


At this point let the cookie dry for three to four hours.
To finish up, use a #233 tip to add a fringe and top to the party hat.


Let dry and you have a cute custom cookie everyone will love.

I would love to wish Cookie Crazie a very happy fourth birthday!
I cannot wait to see what the next year brings!

Callye, The hat on the number is precious! I want to try it.  I have all the numbers for the munchkins' birthdays so this will add some cuteness to them for sure!
Happy 4th birthday, Pam!

Happy Birthday Cookie Crazie!  Very creative, Calley! 

Like cookies, friendships take a lot of time and effort, but the results are oh so worth it when it comes time to enjoy them.

Happy Birthday, Pam, again!!! Today is the Big Day. Lovely celebration cookies. Have visited SweetSugarBelle's site and her creations are just gorgeous. For many of you that comment might be an established fact, but for me, new comer in the cookie world, to be exposed to such a nice and talented community it is just wonderful, so much talent together. And I must say that Cookie Crazie was one of the first cookie sites I ever came across and it just made me fall in love, I just had to subscribe immediately. Just can't get enough of it and very often I find myself into the wee hours, drifting away while exploring Cookie Crazie's blogs. Still have not seen them all, 4 years of daily inputs is some reading to do, apart from the fact that I tend to go back and read some blogs over and over again.  Much love and God Bless!
