Cake Ball Love

I was so happy to come into work this morning to see that my cake pops from Cake Ball Love had arrived!! I'm in love with the packaging and was super excited to see that Pam, the artist and pastry chef behind these little bites of heaven, had put together an assortment of flavors for me to try: Red velvet, vanilla bean, lemon zest, and chocolate bliss. Amazing!!
I might have eaten two of these today already. Okay three. It was three.

Baby Shower Cookies

I designed these cookies for a friend whose baby shower took place over the weekend. The monogram cookies were made using the fancy square cutter from and the ducklings were cut by hand.

All of these were done in royal icing, which required a bit of drying time in between steps. You can see my post on how to do the tufted cookie here.

Valentine's Day Cookies

I know we just celebrated New Year's like, yesterday.... but Valentine's Day is fast approaching! I created these cookies using the fancy square from It's my new favorite cutter. Check out LilaLoa's Flickr group to see more cookie ideas using the fancy square!
Also, scroll down to see a brief how-to on that tufted cookie.

A brief how-to on the tufted cookie:

First, draw a guide on the cookie using a ruler and an edible ink marker.
Then, fill in the squares using 10 count royal icing and a tip 2. Let the the icing dry for about 10 minutes.
Fill in the squares in between, but don't yet fill in squares that will be touching each other. Let these dry for about an hour.
Fill in the rest of the squares.
