This post has a secondary title, “Snail Cookies: Because Michelle is Slow as Molasses with the Posts Lately!”
As I mentioned a few weeks back, my life’s been a whirlwind lately. We sold our sweet little house, moved into a rental house, and are now set to close on our next house around July 4th. Three houses. Two moves. Two kids. One husband traveling to Scandinavia on “work” for the next 10 days…
Yeah, that’s why the posts are comin’ at you super slowly and also why there may be a slightly bitter tone to this post!
Sweet friends! I miss you all so much and am sorry for being much less present on the ol’ interweb these days. Alas, my hubby and I have been up to our eyes in home-selling brouhaha (fixing, cleaning, staging, showing, and all that).
Thankfully, my time away from the sugar arts was fruitful and we sold our house super fast! Woo! Of course, just as that brouhaha wraps up, the packing and moving brouhaha begins. Boo!
I need some cheering up. Someone get me a slice of cake and a wicked cute whale topper, pronto!
Even with all the house mania, I squeezed in time for this little cake to welcome Baby Aurora. Aurora’s daddy works with my hubs inventing gizmos and gadgets to conduct ocean research. It only seemed natural to make a baby whale topper for a cake in her honor.
There must have been something sweet shaking around the cosmos nine months back as the two greatest Cookie Queens of all-time, Callye AKA Sugarbelle and Georganne AKA LilaLoa, each had a baby girl last week and on the very same day!
To celebrate the arrival of their little cookie princesses, my friends Hani of Haniela’s, Mike of Semi Sweet, and I rallied cookie artists from around the ‘net for a royally-inspired baby shower!
I haven’t ventured much into the wonderful world of princess-inspired treats, so I was stoked to make these Baby Princess Cookies and as I often do, I used design principles from our virtual baby shower guests of honor!
