I did my first "corporate" order this weekend! The Baton Rouge General Foundation sponsors an annual Father/Daughter Sweetheart Dance and Silly Gilly cookies were part of the celebration this year! I have to admit...I've done a lot of cookies over the last 4 months, but NEVER this many in one sitting! Thanks to mom and Stuart (who has self-proclaimed himself "junior baker" - a promotion from sous chef) for helping with both keeping the girls out of the kitchen and with bagging all those cookies!!! Couldn't have done it without ya'll! and thanks to Jenny at BRGF for supporting Silly Gilly Desserts!!
Just an example of a monogrammed cookie that can really be used for any occasion! These were for an 80th birthday party, but they'd be great for a bridal shower/luncheon, baby shower, Christening, etc.
I did these for a mom who wanted to give something to her son's daycare teachers before he moved on to a new class. They'd be great for teacher appreciation gifts as well, or even for end-of-the-season treats for your child's t-ball/ soccer/ football team celebrations (minus the apple of course)!
Mardi Gras might be late this year, but that doesn't stop us from kicking off the celebration! These cupcakes are DELISH! Its a cinnamon cupcake w/ cream cheese frosting (intended to mimic the flavors of a king cake). The regular-sized cupcake is decorated like a king cake, and the mini cupcakes are sprinkled with purple, green & gold sugar. Hoping to do some cookies this week to add to the blog...
Born in 1980, we've done our fair share of celebrating 30th birthdays this past year...and the celebrations carry on! These were for a 30th birthday party in Shreveport the weekend of the Cotton Bowl - hence the color scheme. Of course, you can do any number - I just recently did and 80th birthday party and have a 40th on the books - as well as any color combo...
One of my favorite designs thus far...these were for a zoo birthday party. Loved them so much, I'm pretty sure one of the girls will have a zoo party this year so I can do the cookies for them!!!
I did these for a 3-year old birthday party - posting pics just in time for the SuperBowl!! The colors can match whoever you're rooting for! Wishing black and gold were those colors...sniff sniff!! :-(
More LSU cookies - did these for the Cotton Bowl. The helmet is the newest addition to my football collection.
My friends Gina & Alycee started launched Busy Bird Market last spring. Its a great childrens consignment market - you should definitely check it out this year! The dates for this years' market are April 1 & 2 at the Marriott Hotel off of Corporate. Consigner drop-off starts this week!! Check them out on facebook (www.facebook.com/#!/group.php?gid=100132410028111) or visit their blog at http://www.busybirdmarket.blogspot.com/.
And here are the cookies I did for them to give as gifts to their friends/family who helped them with last year's market!
Probably the closest we'll get to seeing a snowflake around here! I did these for a Christmas Dinner, but they'd be cute for anything you have going on during the winter season! My customer sent me pics of the cookies set out - beautiful!! If you ever take pics like this, please share! I love to see the cookies on display!
