Volunteer Appreciation Cookies

Here is a 200 cookie project I did a few weeks ago for the Town of Newmarket's Volunteer Appreciation event.  I did this project in assembly line fashion, which is one of the reasons I love making cookies so much.

After baking and flooding 200 cookies; let the decorating begin!

Each tray held 24 (plus one sad tray held only 8).  I would do one step on each cookie on each tray before starting the next step.
The first step was painting on the ground/earth.
Tray 1 complete.
The next step was a light green tree.
The next step was adding the larger, darker green tree.
Stacked and ready for the final step.  With a large order like this one, there is a mind-game at play...  Watching the stack of trays decrease made the final push bearable.
Final cookies, before packaging.  Roots and people were adding using edible markers.  This was the most labour intensive step, but I was really happy how they turned out and the feedback was terrific!!  They were loved.

Fundraising Cookies for Pet Valu

For the fourth year, I sold cookies at Pet Valu in Bradford with proceeds going to local pet charities.  I switched up the designs from paws to these adorable animals this year.

Dogs, cats and bunnies!

Dogs, cats, fish and rats!

Doctor Who Cookies - 10th Doctor

Having my Doctor Who loving daughter as a resource, I created this Doctor Who set for someone whose favourite doctor is the 10th one.  As you know, I don't get the whole DW thing (just the theme music makes me uncomfortable), but for those of you who love it, enjoy!

Basketball Cookies

These basketball cookies were made for a young lady to share with her team-mates.  The same day they got picked up my daughter got a text from her good friend stating "someone beside me is eating one of your mom's basketball cookies!"  Small town living... that and a lot of cookies head out the door!

Minecraft Cookies

Here is my confession.  I don't know what Minecraft is.  I have done quite a few sets of Minecraft cookies and despite my research, I still don't feel any smarter when it comes to Minecraft.  I don't think the eaters of these cookies mind one bit!

1st Birthday Transportation Cookies

Melissa and I had a lot of discussions about a perfect theme for her son's birthday party.  Finally, she decided on this adorable transporation theme.  So much fun and so much cuteness.  I loved making these!
