tic toc, tic toc

It has been the longest week ever for me lol…and it is not even over. I just finished two big orders, all wedding cookies. I am tired, sleepy, achy….but it is all worth it, seeing the expression on my customer’s faces. It makes me happy and proud to be able to make these cookies. So thank you.

These cookies are for Andrea and Ian. Their wedding is tomorrow, and I hope they have a wonderful time.

I have never done so many dots at one time lol. 160 cookies in total, times 20+ dots, you do the math lol…I was rushing to get all the cookies wrapped and packaged, that I forgot to take more pictures of them ( dee dee dee)…I am really happy with how they came out, although working with the sugar crystals is a pain , but it sure makes the cookie look better :). I also had an issue with the wrapping ribbon…the store had run out of ribbon, so of course I was running around store to store trying to find more….and I did :).

 

I also made these cookies for Cathie, who is giving them as part of her gift. Such a wonderful lady. I did 600 little flowers for these cookies…wow…I still can’t believe it lol…I love the colors, so fall. I hope she has a wonderful time this saturday!

I want to give a big thanks to Karen who helped me wrapped all of these cookies, who has cooked me a great home cooked peruvian meal yesterday…who is right now in my kitchen baking pork chops for me.. I appreciate all the help K :). My sister Maite helped out a bit too, so thank you 🙂 And my hubby for helping me with my ribbon issue..lol..I am happy to have you in my life, and that you guys are willing to help me out when I need you :), specially with the wrapping lol.

Just so you guys know, the wrapping took us about 5 to 6 hours….it’s not just about baking and decorating, it’s about making the final product look amazing. It takes time and a lot of work, but in the end, it is beautiful to see the final product. It’s not like you are going to a bakery and ordering a dozen plain sugar cookies, these cookies have been made with a lot of heart, love,  and time. Thank you all for appreciating my work!

I am having some relax time before I finish 3 more orders due this weekend lol. I also promised my sister and Karen that I will bake them some of my chocolate cookies…yes I pay them with cookies lol lol.

Love to all!
