Happy Day Decorated Cookie Collection

I love to squeeze a birthday set amongst all the season cookies sets made throughout the year.

This one is named “Happy Day” because my sweet granddaughter, Emmy, said this very phrase at the end of the day on her first birthday. It almost made me want to cry to hear her say those words. I’m not sure she understood what she was saying…..but it truly was a HAPPY day. :)

Be sure to treasure each one. I’ve learned that each moment is a gift. There are no guarantees of tomorrow. Make today ALL that it can be. It may not always be happy, but it can be meaningful in every way. :)

❤️❤️❤️

Finn's Birthday Fleet Decorated Cookie Collection

It’s hard to believe…..but my first grandchild is turning two years old! Wow. When you think time flies by……you realize that you’ve underestimated it in a big way. I’ve also heard that time moves faster the older you get. Oh boy….

Finnegan Asher was born two years ago in November 2016. He was 6 weeks premature and in the NICU for 9 days. But he was strong and healthy….and came home to outgrow any time he might have been “behind”.

Now he is an active curious boy…..that doesn’t leave anything unturned. haha He is busy busy busy…..and so fun to watch.

Finn’s favorite thing right now is CARS! He loves them…..all kinds….actually anything with wheels. So it seemed perfect to get out this set of cutters and wheels to make a bunch of his favorites.

Happy Birthday Finnegan! 🎉 Grammy loves you so much. ❤️

His favorite……Lightening ‘Queen :)

Emmy (my granddaughter) got in on the car cookies too.

Finn was kind enough to allow Emmy to try out his Lightening McQueen slippers. :)

Awww…..I love these two so much. ❤️

Emmy's Flower-y 1st Birthday Cookie Collection

Emmy (my second grandchild and first granddaughter) had her first birthday recently. It was a small gathering of family to celebrate, but we celebrated her in a BIG way. She's a precious sweet doll who manages to make everyone smile.

Her mom wanted a pink flower theme to celebrate her birthday. I pulled out all the stops to make the cookies as flower-y and pink as possible. 💗

I had some new tools to try out in the process, so they were fully incorporated into the design.

Both of my grandchildren haven't had refined sugar yet, so for Emmy's birthday, I modified my sugar cookie recipe and made it gluten and sugar free. The cookies turned out great!

Sadly, I attempted to make a "glaze" that was sugar free......but since sugar is the predominate ingredient (powdered sugar and corn syrup), the substitutes were no match at all. I was hugely disappointed. I ended up decorating the cookies with regular sugary glaze and left some of the cookies plain for the grandbabies. In the end, it worked. 

I'm still on a quest to find a way to decorate cookies without the sugar. I'll let you know if I ever conquer that one. 🙃

Happy Birthday my sweet Emmy Lou Who. I love you so much!!!

Birthday with SHINE Decorated Cookie Collection

I love to fit an updated birthday cookie set in between all the seasonal cookies.....just to try out new cutters, techniques and products for one of the most common cookie needs around.....BIRTHDAY! 

For this set, I chose to feature silver with pretty blues and a touch of peach. 

Hopefully this set finds one of you with a birthday close by so you feel the birthday love and enjoy the sentiment. I wish I could send your the cookies through the computer/phone screen. :)
