Sophie's Pink and Purple Princess Party

Monday, January 14, 2013
Over the holidays my beautiful little girl turned 4.

These were seriously the only non Christmas cookies I made all season.  And I think they're my favorite because they're just so darn GIRLIE!!  :)


I can't remember the last time I had so much fun making cookies.  I'll admit, sometimes I get burned out and cookies feel more like work than fun.  But these were actually fun.  And it felt so good to make cookies for someone I love.


There are some fun shapes and designs here.

The carraige is made with a cheap pumpkin cutter I got in one of those large econo packages at Michales.  I just added "wheels".  The shoe design was inspired by a pillow I saw at Target like 3 years ago.  And the mini bows....those are cutters I found in the clay crafting section at Hobby Lobby.

I collect for these reasons.... you never know what your going to need when....


I know this picture is a little rough....but I don't quite have the whole professional indoor lighting thing quite down.  Like at all.  I should really look into that.  But here is her cake....


She was so stinking happy.  All she wanted was a princess cake.

She had another party (with all the school kids her age) that I made cupcakes for.  Same chocolate cake and purple icing (per the birthday girl's request) and I used the mini bows as cupcake toppers.  Really so adorable.  Wish I would have taken a pic of them.  But, as per usual in the life of a mom on the go, I ran out of time for photography.  Dangit.


Anyway!  I'm starting to gear up for Valentine's around here!  I should (hopefully) be back soon after I slip into something more romantic....like an apron and sweats....and make some cute Valentine's sweets :)
