A good friend of ours, Lisa C., was heading off island for a friends retirement party and for a little mini vacation to visit friends. So we figured this would be a great opportunity to send some "sugarHI creations" to the Big Island! We could spread the sugarHI word and Lisa would have some gifts to give to the friends she would be seeing. We asked if she'd be interested and she graciously agreed :) She mentioned that she would be seeing lots of people, but also some that dance with a hula halau there. That inspired the cookies we decided on sending.

I am feeling much more confident with our hibiscus and pineapples. And was pleasantly surprised that my first try with the ipus was pretty successful. I wasnt sure if those would translate well, but I had 3 or 4 people correctly identify them on their first try and my husband took only 2 trys. In his defense, I asked him what he thought they were before I added the green detail so at that point they looked like some kind of weird bib thingy or the beginning of a one eyed monster...LOL!!)
Lisa C. left Friday and wont be back till Monday so we anxiously await word to see how everyone like them. If all goes well, we'll hopefully post a update...so stay tuned!
