Summer cookies

Today is the Summer Solstice, the longest daylight period of the year and the official first day of Summer….If you live in Southern California like I do then you’ll know we have been enjoying summer wear for a while now.

I happen to love summer…. I wish it was warm all year long so I could wear shorts and flip flops every day. I also happen to love summer cookies and here are a few I have made recently….

Enjoy and Happy Summer!

Ahoy! It’s a boy!

I had fun making these cute nautical cookies to match a nautical baby shower to welcome baby Jacob. The little sailor suit reminds me of one my own son wore as a baby 23 years ago!

This is the last order that I used the anchor shaped cookie cutter. Three different orders with anchors and lots of breakage. Way too fragile of a shape for packaging, transporting… Of all of the hundreds of cookie cutters I have used, this one shape caused me too much grief to use again.

Sailboats and anchors for Karson’s 1st Birthday

I was really honored to be asked to make such fun cookies for a longtime family friends baby’s 1st Birthday. The nautical theme and colors of red, light blue, and navy really came out cute. I used her decorations and invitation for inspiration and was happy she gave me creative freedom for the shapes and designs. I love how she displayed the cookie favors in a boat, so cute!Thank you Britney!
