A Brief Baking Break...

It's been awhile!  I have been busy and have lots of pictures to post.  I've been using Facebook much more than my blog.  If you haven't liked my page yet and you miss my updates, please take a minute to visit.  Until then, I just want to tell you the summer plan.

My baby is due mid-June, but I think it all may happen very soon.  I am no longer taking orders and hope to resume my baking in August and just in time for the school year!  Please send me an email if you would like get a spot on my August calendar.  Believe it or not, it is filling up.

Thanks for your understanding and support as I take this little break from baking to enjoy the summer with our new little family member.  I will check in with a baby update.  Until then...

Some Assembly Required

After all the flowers, baby cookies, etc., I realized I've never done a robot.  So when Shauna asked me to do them for her son's 3rd birthday, I had no idea what direction I would go!  After googling robot clip art, I ended up using round cookies and 2 fun robot shapes.
 Kinda freaky, huh?
Still fun!

 Shauna also asked for coordinating 3s
to go with the platter
I haven't done a shot like this in awhile.
Don't they look so thick and soft?
Thanks, Shauna!

March Already??

Can you believe it's March?  Of course, I'm counting down until I deliver this baby in June, but it really just feels like we finished Christmas!  I'll take it though.  February was a big blur for me.  In addition to the plethora of Valentine's orders (too many to photograph - I was literally pumping them out the door!), I had the following orders AND my son's 6th birthday party. I still can't believe what a blessing SugarChic has been in my life.  Thank you so much!  
 Lego Favors for Ben's classmate and friend, Brady.
Thanks Elizabeth!  It was a great party!
 Cat in the Hat
 Whimsical and fun!
Thanks, Shelley!
 A thank you assortment for a vet.

 Thanks, Michelle!
 Diamond rings to thank a jeweler.
Thanks, Virginia!
 Due date cookie favors for a baby shower!
Toni sent me a pic from Pinterest of a similar cookie
made with fondant.  Since I don't use fondant, I decided to layer the cookie "date" with a small cookie.
 It worked out better than I thought and
gave them some interest!
Thanks, Toni (and Lia)!
 Petites to match a baby shower invite.
Thanks, Michelle!
 Campfire cookies for Nathan's 5th birthday!
Thanks, Ellen!

Have you ever heard of Monster High?
I hadn't until I got this picture from Lindsey.
Her daughter wanted cookie pops to look like this!
 I hand cut these and think they came out great!
They were given out as favors.
Thanks, Lindsey!

More to come.  I am hoping to do a "Shamrock Special."  Stay tuned for more info!  Check my FB page for announcements and info regarding specials and ordering.

Finishing off 2011...a little late!

The end of my 2011 was also the end of my morning sickness and first trimester fatigue.  I finally feel like myself again besides the ever-expanding belly. is the end of my 2011 cookies that I just never got around to sharing.

Need something to warm up your winter?  Check out these cookies I did way back in the fall.  Heather is the photographer at Innis Photography.  She does Boudoir sessions and was having an open house where she served my corset cookies and coordinating Petites.  

Thank you to Heather!  These were some of my favorite cookies to create!

Third Time's a Charm!

It's the most wonderful baking time of year and I have been in the biggest rut ever!  If you don't know from my Facebook page or from just knowing me personally, you might wonder what's going on.  I am expecting my 3rd baby! AND this pregnancy decided to take from me many of my favorite things...

1.  My love for coffee - EW!  It's slowly coming back and of course it's of the decaf variety.  :(
2.  My love for veggies!  Again, if you know me, I've been about 90% vegan (I say 90% because I still ate a SugarChic cookie on a weekly basis) since last spring.  It was one of the best things I've ever done.  But guess what?  I get knocked up and only want cheeseburgers!  Yep - totally weird and totally amazing at the same time.  Needless to say, I'll be back to my vegan-ish ways in about 6 more months.
3.  My love for SWEETS!  Not only do I not really crave them, but I am not really into making them either.  Very sad.
4.  Energy.

As I enter my second trimester, I see some of my loves coming back, but my pregnancies are always a bit "iffy" (for lack of a better word) so I will be strategically taking orders from now through the summer.  Please inquire when you are in need!  I just can't guarantee that I will continue to overload myself (as I usually do).  Ha!

As always, thank you!
