Elfin-style Santa Claus Cookies from a Football Cutter!

I want to put an exclamation point after all of my post titles, but it seems a bit much.

I’m afraid you might think I just put it there reflexively. I mean, could a person possibly be that excited over each and every one of these cookies?

Honestly, YES!!!

Silly Chilly Polar Bear Cookies for Any Cookie Cutter!

When I think of Christmas, I think about gray cloudssnowmen, dark evenings, sparkly snowflakes, and woodsy-smelling pine trees.

I also think about polar bears because they make for many cute cookie designs, including these polar bear buddies that got caught in a snowstorm.

They have scarves though so they don’t mind.

Baby on Board! Sweet Surfing Baby Shower Cake

Though my blog may not reflect this, I’ve actually been really busy baking these days! In fact, I’ve been designing really fun cakes for some of my closest friends, which makes for the most rewarding baking of all.

Pardon the lack of carefully staged photos. With my gals napping less, meticulously planned, well-executed photo sessions haven’t been in the cards. Still, this cake for my dear friend Rachel was too cute not to share!

Thanksgiving Turkey Cookies Gone Kawaii!

Cookie burnout gets the best of us sometimes, but thankfully Thanksgiving and the lack of turkey cookies on my blog inspired me to whip up royal icing once again.

While turkeys aren’t the cutest of creatures, but all things kawaii must be cute, so I used my trusty sprinkles, wide-set candy bead eyes, and the most common cookie cutter around to make these ultra-cute gobblers.

Bonus! The turkey head and tail can be decorated simultaneously, so these cookies come together fast!

Speediness is quite helpful with November flying by like an autumn breeze!
