Holiday Greetings

Now available in my Etsy shop: Holiday Greetings - a set of 6 Orange Vanilla Spice Cookies.

I'm really into square cookies right now. These shimmery holiday expressions are hand piped in royal icing then painted with Wilton pearl dust in silver and gold.

Munaluchi Bride Magazine

The amazing group of people behind Munaluchi Bride Magazine held an event last week at DEX New York to introduce industry professionals to the Munaluchi brand. It was a lovely evening of food, drinks and conversation and I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to provide cookies for the event.

New York International Bridal Week

Over the weekend I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to be a sponsor at Claire Pettibone's runway show at New York International Bridal Week at Pier 94.

For this event I created a "cookie cake" consisting of 42 cookies on a tiered display along with 250 cookies to be given to the guests of the show. The cookies were iced in lavender and sage then brush embroidered with gold flowers to go with Claire's French theme for this year.

Huffington Post Feature

Delivery to the bridal show yesterday was a success. We had a great afternoon in the city and then came home to find that SweetAmbs had made it into the wedding section of the Huffington Post!
