Happy Mother's Day to all those moms out there. These are the second set of cookies I did for Mother's Day this year, this time I was told the mom loved flowers and her favorite color was yellow. I knew they were going to be shipped so I didn't want to go too crazy, but thanks to a wonderful flower tutorial from Sweet Sugar Bell (here), I had the perfect idea for my "yellow" flowers, the rest just had to keep up. Instead of using luster dust like she did, I did some washes with color to add depth and definition. I was told she very much enjoyed them, something fun and simple for the Mom who loves bright colors and flowers :)
It's Mother's Day, and I was asked to make cookie for two very special moms. This set was for a "classy" mom who loved black and white with just a little red for accent. I immediately thought of a guest post by Ali-Bee on Sweet Sugar Bell's blog who did a tutorial on creating brush embroidery (here) and thought this would be a great time to give it a shot. I really liked the way these came out. I was a little afraid of doing black and white cookies for Mother's Day and that they'd be a little odd but all in all I think these were exactly what she wanted.

here) that were done for the mom's sister. I love the little details I was able to get into these, the little flowers and hearts on the yellow onesies, the bow on the duck, and even the little "A" on the blanket in the stroller. They were a surprise for the mom and I got some great feedback that they were well loved by all.
Wizard 101 cookies, take 2 :) I got an email from a mom who's son is a big fan of Wizard 101. She'd seen the platter of cookies I did for the company and wanted something similar for her son's birthday party. I kept the bite cookies pretty much the same but I was able to add more detail to the doodle cookies this time around, including a colorful dotted border and a custom "birthday" cookie with 2 wizards from his school (balance). I always love making Wizard 101 cookies, it is such a fun game with the best fans on earth. Maybe I'll get to do some ninja pigs or goblins next time :)
