Soar to Four!

We were so thrilled to get to celebrate with an old friend of mine this past weekend!  Her cute as a button little boy turned FOUR!  His mama is my baking friend....we chat about royal icing, sugar cookie recipes, baking soda amounts, etc!!!!!  She made some ADORABLE fire themed cookies for his party....(oops.... we ate them before I could take a picture of them!) and an awesome fire truck cake!  I know this little guy gets lots of fun cookies from his amazing mama, but I wanted to bring cookies for his special day too.  I wasn't sure what kind to make...and then I thought of my little guy...and how much he loves trucks and cars and AIRPLANES!!!! (Well...he loves playing with them at least...flying in them..hmmm..not so much!!)

So here's what we came up with...

Hope you had a great day!!!

A recap

So it's been a while since I've posted....but that's not to say the mixer hasn't been whirling and my hands haven't been knee deep in royal icing....I just haven't taken the time to post some of my pictures.... are a few...

Whew!  It's been a busy month....and still  lots more to share in the next few weeks!

The toys lying around our house these days either have wheels or are related to Toy Story characters.  So when a friend from grad school asked me to make superhero cookies for her little man turning four... I had to brush up on my superhero awareness.  Mr. G had his mind set on batman and he even decided to wear a batman costume at his superhero birthday party!  So batman it was!!!!

I would have had no idea how to create a batman cookie on my own without the help of this amazing baker!  I LOVED her batman cookies so much.... I tried to re-create them!!!

There were lots of little details on these guys....and unfortunately a few of them broke during the frosting let's just say I had some good practice with these guys.

But BAM!!!! When they were finally all said and done....I think they turned out the perfect superhero cookie for a perfect 4-year old!!!  Happy BIG 4, Mr. G!!!!  So glad these cookies gave your mommy and I a chance to catch up!!! Our reunion was waaaaay overdo!!
