Happy Moon

We were asked to create some "Happy Moon" cookies as Thank You's. Where did Happy Moon come from? Well, the little girl we were making these for is named Hau'oli Yue :) "Hau'oli" in Hawaiian is "Happy" and "Yue" in Chinese is "Moon" Moon!

Now I said "some" cookies...ok, more like a lot! We made 300 thank you favors to be exact with 2 cookies in each favor so that mean we baked, piped, flooded and decorated,  600 cookies total!! This was officially our biggest set yet!! And we are happy to say that we survived to tell the story!!

In addition to the cookies, we created some "Mahalo", meaning "Thank You" in Hawaiian, tags to go on each favor. The theme was asian with the colors red, gold and black as you can see. 

The cookies were a huge hit! We received a sweet message from 
Hau'oli's mom that said... 

"AWESOME...happyMOON yummo cookies were big hit for OUR opus & eyes!! we♥edTHEM! MAHALO"

All 300 Happy Moon -Thank You Favors!!

It's a Jungle Out There....

We were recently asked to do some jungle theme cookies including lions, zebras, giraffes and monkeys. How fun! Here is what we came up with...

Aren't they so cute?! We got pretty attached to these and wanted to name each and every one of them!

We did have pictures to go of off so that really helped. (Please excuse the poor quality of the real pictures, I had to take a pic of the pic on my computer screen!)

Starting with the Giraffe...

Second was the lion...

Then the zebra...

And last but not least, the monkey!!

What do you think?! 

We had a lot of fun doing these and we really learned a lot about how well we work together!! We hope that the recipients had as much fun eating them as we did creating them!!

School Buses

I recently saw a great post by Loren of The Baking Sheet where she made some great Back to School- School Bus Cookies out of heart shaped cookies. I am so impressed by her creativity and I immediately filed that away in my "cookies to try someday" memory bank! I figured they would be a great gift for my kids bus driver, Kimo, at the end of the school year.

And then...we found out we were moving! We are staying in the same town but moving to a great new house, 2 story, yard, garage, more room, double oven, long counter top and wait...yes! I said DOUBLE OVEN!!! Can you believe it?! I have been dying for one of those!!! I'm SO EXCITED!! When we went to look at the house the first time and I noticed the oven my husband said..."Yup! She's sold!!" LOL..he knows me so well :)

I could go on and on about this awesome house but thats for another time...LOL...back to the cookies! there I was Monday afternoon, realizing that it was going to be the last week the kids were riding the bus because this week they have Fall Intersession and next week we are moving closer to the school where there is no bus cookies needed to be made..NOW!! And thats just what I did...

I decided that hearts, while super adorable, might not be the right fit for Kimo, since he's a guy :) Cristin from  Cristin's Cookies  has recently been making such cute cookies with her rectangle cutter which reminded me that I recently also ordered the same cutter from I ordered them after Callye from Sugarbelle's posted a great blog on Scalloped Round Cookie Cutters. I ordered the cutter she recommended, the Scalloped Edge Oval #4192 and then also ordered the Scalloped  Edge Rectangle #3472. The rectangle was prefect for a bus!

So Thursday afternoon, when the kids arrived home, my oldest daughter and I were there waiting at the bus stop and presented Kimo with his "Thank You for being a Great Bus Driver!" Cookies! He was shocked that the cookies actually looked like a bus and thought they were great!! The next day, Friday, the kids final day on the bus, he gave them some cute school bus book marks as thanks yous and farewells. 

The kids will miss Kimo and so will I...everyday for the rest of the school year when I get in my car and drive to school to pick them up!
