Graduations this week

Lots and lots and lots of graduation cookies this week.  A little overwhelming and soooo very time consuming.  

Boxed graduation set--$25 (12 cookies in a gift box, tied with ribbon)

Southeastern High School graduate, headed to Manchester University.  He loves music, and plays soccer.

Penn High School graduate who played rugby.

St Joseph High School graduate, headed to Western Michigan University.  She's a "music theater" major.

I made two large platter of bite size minis to celebrate one daughter graduating from Penn High School and one graduating from Purdue University.  They are both headed to University of Indianapolis in the fall--one for her ungrad degree and the other for her master.  Lovely family.  Ü

Large platter for a Home School graduation party.  Adrianna LOVES cats and music....More and more local families are 'home schooling' in our area.  We have a great public school system, so it's a little hard for me to understand.  Kudos to them for being organized and patient enough to do it themselves.  Ü

Merrill High School Graduation cookies

I'm kind of liking doing these box sets....

A neat little gift for any occasion!  

Six cookies for a boxed set. $15

All boxed and ready for his aunt to ship.  I think they are going somewhere up in Michigan?  Never heard of the school, but I do know their mascot, who looks like a pirate, is a "VANDAL."  Um, not what I'd want my mascot to be in this day and age.  Ü

21st Birthday: Purdue

An assortment of cookies for a Purdue student turning the big "2-1".  He is a chemical engineering major, involved with PMO (Purdue Musical Organizations), and also competes in ballroom dance.  I had to add Purdue Pete, the Purdue train, and of course, a couple beer mugs.  Twenty-four cookies in all, so he can share.  His mom loved them, I hope he does, too!

90th Birthday, Miles style

Happy 90th Birthday, Helen Free. 
She worked at Miles and changed the way patients managed their diabetes. Remarkable woman. Her daughter-in-law requested "Speedy", Alka Seltzer, and other images that I had no clue...It all came together though!

Giraffe Baby Shower

I started my baking journey with cakes, and have since migrated to cookies.......but after doing this cake/cookie combination, I think that I found the best of both worlds! A "simple" 2 tier (4 total layers) cake, with polka dots, borders, and a few cookies adhered with fluffy buttercream frosting.  Made to match the baby shower decor perfectly.  I guess because I haven't decorated a cake in a while, I LOVED doing it again. Ü
6" round vanilla, 10" round chocolate, decorated with fluffy buttercream
and adorned with decorated sugar cookies....

A dozen platter cookies with extra minis.

Snow Ball invite

A mother was looking for a creative way for her son to find a date for "the Snow Ball" dance.  She saw a prom cookie invite (on a circle cookie), and wanted to know if I could do a similar one.  We decided to use a snow flake for the big cookie.  Needless to say, he had a date for the "Snow Ball."
