Now, Sea Here!


Oh, I crack myself up! Can you hear an older man sternly saying that title in your head like I can? Can you actually HEAR it?!

“Now, see here!” (Yes, I’m really giggling over here at the puns!) :-D

Seahorse & Seashell cookies.

A couple days ago, my sweet friend Patricia asked me if I could make some last-minute cookies for a special dinner she held two nights ago. I said, “Sure!” right away, not even knowing for certain what design she might need! (A rookie error, by the way. Please be smarter than me!) But she sent me a photo of some invitations she was creating from Pinterest, and I had enough to go on for some simple, elegant seahorse & seashell cookies.

Sea?! ;-)

The seahorse cookie cutter is a ginormous one that I’d never gotten to use before (it’s about 7″ tall). I found mine in a clearance bin at Macy’s last fall (really!), but you can also purchase one HERE online. I think mine must’ve already been squished a bit before I saw it, as my seahorse isn’t quite so chubby; rather, he’s a bit leaner, or possibly, not as pregnant?! ;-)

Chesty’s 1st Birthday!


When I first received this particular cookie request, Christine said she needed cookies for a baby’s 1st birthday. I was thinking of Sesame Street and Mickey Mouse, or bright primary colors and baby animals. I asked her for a theme and possibly even some pictures of her baby for inspiration.

Imagine my complete & utter surprise to learn that the theme was “Marines,” and that the baby was a bulldog puppy named Chesty! (Yes, after the Marines’ official mascot, Chesty.) Well, that required switching gears, for sure! ;-)

I did my best to make Chesty come alive with icing… and that was tricky since I don’t know much about dogs either! (Cats are a different story, ha.) And Christine sent me a picture of her puppy, so I incorporated that in a special way – with Chesty popping out of a birthday cake!

I learned a bit about doggy coats, too. In doing so, I tried to recreate the “brindle” look onto parts of Chesty, too:
