I must admit that I love custom orders. This week we were asked to make some custom Navy Star cookies. The customer asked us to find an image online (which I did, it is the second image of the flag) and re-create the logo on 3.5" rounds. Yummy!
We are very much in the Christmas spirit this week, getting ready to make some seriously delicious gingerbread! The yummy fresh-baked cookie smell from our oven is pretty wonderful year-round but during the last month when the gingerbread starts baking its downright addicting! I'll be honest that I was never a fan of the spicy cookie until a couple of years ago until I discovered this recipe. It's a delicious blend of sweet with just a hint of ginger. My ginger-loving mom loves em' and my ginger-hating sister can eat almost a dozen by herself. "Do they taste like the ones I saw at "input store name here" I get asked this question very often and the answer is "no!" they are so much softer than those rock-hard men & houses at the grocery store and much more healthy too. We use the best ingredients like pure butter, real extract and never any preservatives. The best part is they are baked fresh just for you! These little men have managed to turn a whole lot of gingerbread-haters into lovers.

We had a very busy week, making everything from butterflies to cupcakes, every kind of photo cookie and custom cookies. But, these cookies were definitely one of our faves! We had a great time making these custom Goodyear Blimp cookies.
We made 1,000 of these cute Toto cookies for a special corporate event. The client wanted a simple & small cookie individually wrapped to give to clients during the event. We received many kudos from our client after they received the cookies. A special thank you to Cathy from Paragon for her sweet voicemail and to Sam for contacting me a week later for a personal order. :)
