Summer Snail Cookies: Because Slow Food is Sweet!

This post has a secondary title, “Snail Cookies: Because Michelle is Slow as Molasses with the Posts Lately!”

True enough!

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…

Under the Sea Rosette Cake for Baby Aurora

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!

Little Princess Cookies: Virtual Baby Shower for Sugarbelle & LilaLoa

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!

He or She? Hedge Your Bets! Gender Reveal Hedgehog Cookies

While decorating these sweet Baby Face Cookies for my friend Frances’ gender reveal party, I was daydreaming about cookies (I’m 100 percent serious) and another gender reveal cookie came to me…

Hedgehogs… with hair-bows… and bow-ties!

And then, the perfect pun: “Hedge your bets!”

Well, not perfectly punny, but pretty close. Plus, it’s a little cheesy and a little sweet. Just like my cookie style!

And sprinkles, of course. To be my style, there must be sprinkles!
