Summer Vacation Cookies

It's finally here...VACATION TIME!
Here are the cookies I made for the road!
Whole Wheat Chocolate Cut-Out Cookies
2 sticks margarine
3/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder

In stand mixer with dough hook mix together margarine, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Add in flours and cocoa powder 1 cup at a time until fully mixed. Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes or more depending on cookies size.
These cookies are made with Wilton mini cookie cutters and this recipe made 100 mini cookies. The cookies are iced with royal icing.
Soft, chewy, and bite sized!

See you in a few weeks!

2012 Graduation Cupcakes

It's Finally Here!
Today is the day, by the time you are reading this it was yesterday!
My son graduates from high school! It has been an amazing journey and when he smiles, I still see that little boy graduating from preschool and he is still just as sweet!
The years have gone by fast and so has his senior year! I had a huge cake planned for this spectacular occasion, time just didn't permit.
So we have had little sweets here and there to celebrate!
This time it is all about you!
Congratulations Steve!
   
~Love, Mom

2012 Graduation Cookies

This is my very first cookie order!
Deja Vu? Kinda. Less than a week ago, with the help of my 2 daughters, we made Graduation Cap & Diploma Cookies pretty much just like these. I sent a few of the cookies home with one of my son's friends that is also graduating and his mom asked me to make some for them! I can't tell you how excited I was that someone wanted my cookies! Okay, I get email cookie orders pretty much weekly, but they are usually out of state and I decline. But now, who knows? Maybe this could be the start of something new in my life?
...Graduation Caps
...Diplomas
I really enjoyed making these cookies and once again found relaxation with my piping bag in hand!
The cookie box dividers didn't quite fit the cookies so had to go without, but my first order is boxed and ready to go!

Tonight they finally walk! Tomorrow look for the final graduation sweet of 2012 that I made for my son!
 
CONGRATULATIONS

Graduation Cap & Diploma Cookies

Less than a week to go until my son's graduation ceremony! His last day of school was actually today!
With so many things going on I just haven't had time or motivation to bake. I had lemon sugar cookie dough in the freezer that I used to make these. My daughter and partner in baking, Katie, actually flooded all of these cookies for me! My 4 year old wanted to get her hands into the fun and actually helped pipe the top outline on some of the graduation caps and diplomas! I helped guide her tiny little hand a bit, but she did great and had lots of fun!
I planned on these being my last cookies for awhile, but actually had a request to make a batch of these for a senior graduation camping trip before we take off on our vacation! I am pretty excited that my cookies are wanted! So look for more cookies similar to these soon!
CONGRATULATIONS

to my dear son Steve, you have made it to the finish line, just waiting for the ceremony now! It seems like just yesterday he was graduating preschool!

(we all had a hand in making these!)

Mrs. Fox's Sweet Party #27

Hi and Welcome to My Sweet Party!
I haven't been able to devote the time that I used to to my blog anymore. There are a few more sweets that I plan to make before school gets out for summer, but then I do plan on taking a vacation for at least a few weeks, if not quite a bit longer as I will not have access to a computer. I am sorry for any inconvenience that this has caused and I will miss you all!

Graduation Cupcakes

Just 2 more weeks until my son graduates!
I found these liners and plates at Michael's, they are Celebrate It! brand. The cupcakes were made with the Perfect Vanilla Cupcakes Recipe from Glorious Treats and the icing is a traditional buttercream with a package of Duncan Hines Frosting Creations in Cotton Candy flavoring which give it the flavor and color.
CONGRATULATIONS
