Beach Cookie Mania

 So I want to say thank you out there for being patient…
Just to let you know I completed the 400 cookies in 2 days and feel great about it!  I think I have the “cookies in mass” technique down, so bring it!
I left for Austin last week and after spending some fun time with my dear friend who lives out there, I started work.
I will say being on Texas soil gave me a warm, cozy feeling…which one could argue was just the effects of the copious amount of salsa I ate…or, possibly, the excruciating heat radiating my now-Yankee bones…but either way, cozy and warm.
I did observe, though, that (at least within Austin city limits) there has apparently been a resurgence of the rhinestone.  There were “fancy faux gems” everywhere: belts, sandals, purses…
You don’t see a lot of rhinestones up here, although the gold-plated, nameplate necklaces that Jersey-girls seem to love definitely hold their own in the garish jewelry contest 😉
Now, back to cookies and stuff…
The theme for the Dell cookies was “beachy”.
So I did board shorts…
Flip Flops…
Sand Pails
and beach balls
This is about 1/4 done with the bagging and tying with curling ribbon…
 
Lesson learned: don’t underestimate the bagging process.  It took a long time.
So there you have a little glimpse into my latest big project.
I have been busy lately with stuff, but while we are on the subject of beach, I did this order a few weeks ago for a beach-themed wedding shower:
they also wanted some assorted cookies along with the sugar cookies…
I made Chocolate-toffee chip, Snickerdoodle and White chocolate Kit-Kat cookies…they were YUM!
they also ordered a version of this cake that I have made before.
So, there you go…I will tell you I am beached out…until next time 🙂

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

Wow, you did an amazing job, knocking down 400 of the most adorable cookies I've ever seen in just two days! I particularly love the "sand" on those sand pails, very nice touch =).

hahahaha you should see the rhinestones when the rodeos come around! i happen to live in san antonio, tx but used to live in austin. when the rodeo comes to town every one dresses up in their country duds and from head to toe are usually rhinestones! even the men!
