Superheroes Series

Well, it will be a short series...I've been asked to make cookies for back-to-back birthday parties for the grandsons of a friend at church. This week's superhero was the man of steel:

I am indebted to Callye at The Adventures of Sweet Sugarbelle for her tutorial on the Superman shield! Her ideas made this design work up quick and easy. Some colorful stars with Superman sprinkles and some number "3" cookies for the birthday boy rounded out the two trays of treats.

Next week, I'll post the next superhero....hope those cookies turn out as well as this set did!

Colorful Thanks

My daughter's mother-in-law was so kind to ship two tubes of Mary Kay lipstick in my very favorite color a couple of weeks ago. I was so happy that she found the color still in stock - companies tend to drop shades and add new ones without warning, and I had delayed ordering a new tube for so long that I just wasn't sure it could be found.

In return, I baked a tasty 'thank you' for her, using some new colors that I really, really like [but probably won't be able to create again since I was just playing around with the gel colors]:

In real life, the colors are a dark teal, burnt orange, and ivory. Kind of an early hint of fall....which I'm so ready for!

Shipping out on Monday and hope they arrive unbroken!
