Corporate Marketing Cookies

More often than not I am making cookies for baby showers or birthdays, however every now and then it is fun to switch things up.  

I made these cookies for a local caterer in town to help them advertise to local businesses.  

If you have a business you want to market your services to, or you are hosting a corporate event be sure to hit me up.  I would love to make you some cookies with your business logo on them.

If you are in the Mankato area and want to check out some of these local businesses you can find them out at the links provided below.  
And if you are in the area and want some amazing food catered for your next event be sure to place an order from Najwa's Catering!

Stay Sweet Everyone!

Chevron Baby Shower Cookies

How sweet is the name Oliver Watson K,  it just warms your heart, and if you could see the little guy your heart would be even warmer, he is a cutie!

This is one of those sets that got me really excited because I finally had a chance to make a chalkboard cookie......and I got to use my super cool new contraption for tracing difficult designs (more about that in a later post)

When I was commissioned for the set I was asked to make cookies to match with a chevron, chalkboard and teal themed baby shower highlighting the baby's name.  From there I had creative freedom to come up with whatever I wanted.

I opted to airbrush a few chevron cookies, do a K cookie to match a beautiful metallic K they displayed at the baby shower and the highlight of the whole set was a chalkboard cookie that matched the birth announcements.

This set allowed me to use a few techniques that I normally don't get to try out, like making my own K transfers and using (non homemade) stencils to airbrush patterns on a cookie.  

My all time favorite cookie of this set was the chalkboard cookie.  I was really excited about this one not only because I had the chance to finally make a chalkboard cookie but I also go the chance to use my Camera-Lucida app on my tablet and the new cool holder my hubby made for me so I could finally use the app.  I will do a nice write up about Camera-Lucida and how to make a stand for it some time soon.  For those of you like me who don't have a kopycake it is a great way to keep things consistent on cookies.  If you are itching to know more go and check Klickitat street for an awesome tutorial.  

Stay sweet everyone!

Funky Sock Cookies

I can't even begin to tell you all how excited I was to get this order.  I love funky socks!  When I go to Korea one of the first things on my list (besides eating lots of Korean food) is to buy crazy Korean socks.

When this order came in for a set of crazy sock cookies for a surprise 18th birthday I was thrilled!

The birthday boys mom sent me photos of some of his favorite funky socks and I replicated them in cookie form.

Hope you all get as big of a kick out of these cookies as I did.

Stay sweet everyone!
