Good News, Bad News

Do you want the good news or the bad news first?

The good news?

Okay, well...  

(No, I'm not pregnant)
The good news is that I went through my pictures and found some random treats that I haven't shared with you yet.  These tiny footprint cookies I made for a baby shower do make me majorly baby hungry.  
So lets move on before I dwell on my pity.  THIS IS THE GOOD NEWS SEGMENT for pete's sake!

The good news is that these simple monogram cookies were made in celebration of some adorable newlyweds.  As you can see, my favorite cookie cutter set is getting some mileage.  My circle/scalloped circle set is still my complete fave!  I bought mine locally, but it is several dollars cheaper on amazon.  So I hooked you up with a link in our amazon shop (sidebar).

These little dress cookies were kinda fun.  I used fondant for the tiny rosette.  You know I tread lightly with fondant since our break-up.  But really, we're on pretty good terms now.  Time heals all pain.   

I've talked about royal icing transfers a lot lately.  It's kind of a kick.  And I think these little candy ones are my very favorites yet!  I'm sad that I don't have a pic of them on the cupcake, with the matching cookies and cake pops.  But again, it is still the good news segment, so I will focus on the positive. These transfers turned out great!

Now for the baaaaaaaaaaaaaad news.

Just look.

My most loved kitchen toy has seen it's last day.  My glass bowl for my kitchen aid mixer got knocked out by my mean old granite countertops.

I'm going to have to re-visit my little amazon shop to get a new one, if I can justify splurging one more time.  But until then, I miss the pour spout for filling my royal icing bottles.  I miss seeing if there is something not mixed in.  And the measurements on the side.  And I miss how beautiful she was on my counter-top.

I know that if this is my bad news, then life is good.  (Life is in fact, really great.)  But I just needed a few condolences from my baking friends who understand a love for kitchenware.  :)


  1. Yikes..I know how hard it is to loose a favorite tool.
    But the good news is...
    I now know the trick to getting the icing poured into the bottles with out a MAJOR mess.
    I didn't know pour spout glass bowls were available!

  2. Wow, those cookies are gorgeous!

  3. I feel your pain, I would be lost without my kitchen aid!

  4. Oh no, I am sorry about your Kitchenaid bowl! I was actually just telling my sister about how much you loved it because she is trying to register and told me she likes glass mixing bowls best.

  5. We should all chip in for a new bowl! Your cookies are always amazing and wish I had your patience to decorate as beautifully as you do. XOXO

  6. Check out Kitchen Aid itself- they tend to have ridiculously low prices on parts. I now have the red mixer with the glass bowl as I assume you do but my older one (got 20 years ago as college graduation gift- had to be fixed once.

  7. oh and I just love your cookies. You don't need me to tell you have serious frosting talent but then again it never hurts to hear it again.

  8. SADDDDDD!!! Make sad face cookies to make it all better..or sad face suckers

  9. Man, those granite countertops are so unforgiving! Speaking of which, I still owe you a beverage jar!

  10. oh my...I did not know you could get a glass bowl!

  11. williams sonoma sells the bowl if you need it now! love your site!

  12. The little candy transfers are the cutest things ever!

  13. I cant get over how talented you are!

  14. Hope you are able to replace it with something similar, nothing worse than losing a favourite tool.

    Love all your work but especially the mongram cookies.
