The ladybug doth protest too much, methinks.

Is it just me, or does anyone else hear the ladybugs saying "Eat me, eat me?"  These cookies were the result of leftover black and red royal icing from another project.  I couldn't just let that go to waste, so I had to whip up a new batch of cookie dough and bake more cookies for decorating.  My icing ran out after a couple of ladybug cookies and now I have lots of extra "blank" cookies, and so, the cycle perpetuates!

Something's fishy . . .

It's funny how when you tell people you are making "fish cookies" they seem apprehensive at first.  Once I reassure them that no actual fish were used in the recipe, they look relieved.  This school of fish was made as a thank you for my neighbor who was kind enough to feed the fish in our koi pond while we were away on vacation.

It's a Girl!

What better way to celebrate Malkie and Ari's new baby girl than by eating personalized onesies, carriage cake, and a cupcake tree?
