Finn's Lumberjack First Birthday Decorated Cookie Collection

It's hard to believe, but my first grandchild has turned one year old already! He was born November 2016 and suddenly one year rapidly went past us, and he turned ONE! Wow.

My Finn (Finnegan Asher) is all boy. And he's super precious. (Spoken by a new grammy....) He was born premature (34 weeks) at 4.1 lbs and things were a bit scary on his birthday. My daughter was in critical condition and they had to deliver Finn in an emergency. But praise God, he has grown and developed well this last year and is all over the place now. You'd never know by looking at him that he was so small when he was born.

I've enjoyed decorating cookies for many many years now......but nothing tops making cookies for my grandbabies. What a joy it is to dive in there and create memorable cookies for their very special days. I count it such a privilege for the opportunity.

Happy Birthday Finn! 🎉🎂🎈  We love you so much. ❤️

Merry Christmas from CookieCrazie! is finally here.
Christmas......that beloved holiday has arrived!!

I wanted to be sure to let you know how much I appreciate your support and love.
You're presence here is such a blessing and I am extremely grateful.

I wish you and your family the most blessed Christmas of all.

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid.
I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.  
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 
 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

Luke 2:10-14 

Merry Christmas!

NeckTie & BowTie Cookies (Tutorial)

Recently I did a "Little Man" Baby Boy Shower cookie collection.
There were several new cutters that I wanted to experiment with.

First I did mustache cookies.

To add to the fun "manly" collection, I added ties.

Here's some of my favorite cutters from this collection:

Bow Tie Cutters from Cheap Cookie Cutters (3 sizes)
5" Bow Tie Cutter from Cheap Cheep Cookie Cutters
5" Neck Tie Cookie Cutter from Cheap Cheep Cookie Cutters
Mini Neck Tie Cookie Cutter from Copper Gifts

Generally, if there is a part of the cookie that I want to stand out more,
I will pipe it last and try to add extra glaze to it for a more "puffy" look.
In the case of the bow ties and neck ties,
I saved the "knotted" part for last to give it more dimension.

Outline and flood the bottom part of the neck ties and the outer part of the bow ties.

Add patterns as desired.
All of the patterns below were done wet-on-wet (pipe details onto wet glaze).

Allow the ties to dry for a couple of hours (or just one hour in food dehydrator on low)
and then use a long thin tool like a cake tester to add some folds to the ties.

Outline and flood the knotted parts of the ties and include any patterns used on the knot.

Fairly simple......super cute. :)

Mustache Cookies (Tutorial)

Mustaches......they are all the craze.
I especially love to see them in boy baby shower or gender-reveal themed parties.

SO.......I took the plunge and pulled together a set of cookies featuring "staches".

Super fun.....and fairly simple.

Here's where I found my cutters:

Mustache Cutters from Cheap Cheep Cookie Cutters
Mustache Cutters from Cheap Cookie Cutters

Using brown, tan or black 10-second glaze, outline and flood one side of the mustache.
Once it has dried for about 30 minutes, outline and flood the opposite side.

Wait another 30 minutes and add some some lines on each side of the mustache
in the same glaze color.
Be sure to keep the lines from touching since glaze will run together.

After another 30 minutes, add some additional lines to give the cookie even more dimension.

See? Easy peasy. :)
