Misc. cookies and no resolutions to share

Today, for me, is the official “first day” of the New Year. Weekend is over; no more parties, kids are back in school, real life has now set in, and it is only a matter of time before AMEX sends me my Christmas bill. Ouch!
But, with the New Year comes a new outlook. More of this, less of that. Resolutions made and some already broken…you know who you are.
Some of you brave people have written about your resolutions in a public way. I will not.
I am chicken, hear me “bawk”. Oh, that rhymes, how fun!
I have pronounced resolutions in the past..loud and proud for everyone to hear and then they subsequently watch as I do not accomplish them. Not trying to be Debbie Downer here, WAH-wahhh, just trying to hold onto what little dignity I have left. Past resolutions have included, but are not limited to:

  • read more
  • lose weight
  • become more organized
  • exercise more
  • spend less
  • parent better
  • become a vegetarian (who was I kidding?)

and so on and on and on and on…
Like I said in a former post, I do plan to limit myself, but that’s all I am going to give you 😉
OK- not that that any had ANYTHING to do with cookies, so why not bring it back around, ya know?
Cookies…yum.
I have been wanting to post some of these pictures since the fall, but have been busy filling my posts with holiday treats…so here are a few of the cookies I did the past 2 months or so, un-holiday related.
Let’s see ~ here are some Scooby Doo Cookies…
And Transformers Cookies…
Autobots and Decepticons.
Sorry abou the poor picture quality here, it was late and I was tired.
I wish I had flooded the faces in, instead of piping them…oh well, next time!
Next up…
These are for a group in Houston called the Texian Army and this is the “symbol”, if you will. From what I understand they are die-hard supporters of the Houston Dynamo (soccer).
Kinda scary 🙂
These were for their end-of-the-season party.
Another thing to note about these cookies is they were requested to incorporate chocolate, so they were Chocolate chip Sugar cookies.
See the mini chocolate chips??
The last set I will include here are some high heels. They were for a sweet client’s 60th birthday brunch for the ladies.
She requested that they were in fall colors because this was before Halloween.
I didn’t have a heel cutter that I liked for these, so I cut out my own.
The heel cutter that I have has too skinny a high heel and I didn’t want there to be any broken heels on her birthday. That’s enough to make any lady cry!

Hope you like the cookies and everyone enjoy their day back to reality!

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?

    ncstateboy711 – yes, you can bake them ahead, with no issue. I have never frozen already decorated cookies, but plain ones freeze well.
    Thanks so much for the sweet comments!

    I love your gorgeous cookies! I have to make 100 cookies for an Eagle Scout ceremony. Can I bake them ahead and freeze them wo damage? Will decorate with royal and make eagles and stars.

    Chey ~ yes, mostly. In the case of the Scooby Doo I drew it out using a cartoon image on paper for practice first so I wouldn't mess up on the cookie!

  7. SprinkleBakes

    No resolutions here either. Made one last year to read War and Peace, just didn't have the time!
    Those Scooby snacks look great and I LOVE your new blog template. Very clean.

    Corynn,
    Thanks so much!! I flooded the whole cookie orange and then let it dry overnight. Then I did scooby on top of that, so it had dimension.
    Hope that helped!

    Your cookies are amazing! I was wondering..Did you pipe out the scooby doo first and then stick it onto the cookie or just pipe it directly on the cookie?
