They will be a great treat to serve at the wedding shower, but they would also be really cute wedding favors. What a beautiful addition to a table scape it would be to have each cookie wrapped in individual bags and tied with ribbon that was personalized with the names of the bride and groom and the date of the wedding! A sweet treat for guests to take home!

I advertise on my website that I take special requests and I definitely got one this week! My customer had tasted one of my cookies at a friend’s house and decided he would call me to see if I could do something special for his wife for Mother’s Day. His request…a chocolate dipped strawberry and pineapple arrangement!
The project was a learning process for me because I’d never done anything like this before and there are some techniques that you have to know to make it work. But it turned out really cute and I know it’s very yummy because I sampled the product the entire time I was making it! And best of all, it seemed to make my customer very happy, which is why I do what I do anyway!
Here at the Sugar Moon we make a lot of yummy things but what continues to be the big seller are my sugar cookies (thanks to my secret recipe)! I had an order for an 8 year old birthday party. I think they turned out really cute.
I usually just ice them with a powdered sugar glaze but on these I used a royal icing instead. It’s just easier to use when getting a little more creative with the decorating. The taste of the frosting is a little different, but still delicious.
I’m excited to do more of these kinds of cookies in different shapes. They were really fun to make!
It’s time to start planning our Easter menu (less than 2 weeks left) and of course the only thing more important than the Ham is the dessert…or maybe the dessert is the most important thing. It’s what we all look forward to and the right dessert can make such a big impact! On The Sugar Moon website for April the specials are going to be an amazing carrot cake that I will post a picture of in a few days and these wonderful Carrot Cookies!
The cookie itself has real carrots in it and a hint of orange and the glaze is all orange juice (freshly squeezed of course) and powdered sugar with a little bit of orange zest. What a wonderful compliment these cookies would be to any Easter dessert. And wouldn’t the Easter Bunny be happy! Plus, I think if you eat enough of them you can actually count them as a vegetable!
So of course you can guess the flavor of this cake. The sugared cranberries and orange peel give it away! Next time you make something yummy and the flavor isn’t obvious, consider adding a little touch of the thing that creates the flavor to use as decoration. It will not only make your creations beautiful, but it will please your guests so much more!
These cookies were a popular item to order from The Sugar Moon this Valentine’s.
They are just a cute little sentiment of love and sweetness!
Whatever goodies you are enjoying today, I hope you have a very Happy Valentine’s Day. And remember today is the last day to be entered into the giveaway. One lucky winner will be chosen at random tomorrow morning!
My customer wanted to thank her husband’s office staff for throwing her a surprise baby shower. Of course she could have just sent a thank you card, but a Thank You Cookie from The Sugar Moon is so much sweeter!
What a great way to show someone how thankful you are! I think they turned out really cute.
These cookies are also available for Valentine’s Day. On my website they are listed under February specials as “Conversation Heart Sugar Cookies”. They are hearts (of course) and the imprints say: “Be Mine”, “I love You” and “Kiss Me”. Just a fun little idea for your Valentine!
