Decorated Sugar Cookies!

It's been awhile since I've posted, so you probably think I've been spending my summer lounging by the pool without a care in the world.  Only in my dreams.  But I had a great summer filled with a Baby Shower and a Sweet 16 Birthday Party.  And before I knew it, I woke up and it was September.  Besides the parties, I was also baking and decorating cookies.  Thought you might want to take a look.

Christmas Cookies in July

What better way to cool things down than with a little snow.  With it being July, the only way to do that is with a snowflake cookie, or maybe I should say a Jumbo Snowflake Cookie?  Today I'm participating in a #christmascookiesinjuly cookie collaboration hosted by two of the greatest cookie creators ever... Callye (Sweet Sugarbelle) and Georganne (LilaLoa).  Be sure to check out all the blogs where you'll see all the other beautiful Christmas Cookie creations.

Bumble Bee Themed Dessert Table!

Of course the best part of the party is when I get to put it all together.  It was a simple display because in just a few weeks another party would be happening.  So with a few added stripes, the Bumblebee Dessert Table was created.

Bumble Bee Cornbread!

I promise, this Bee themed party is almost over, please don't buzz away.

I wanted to serve cornbread because we were having Bar-B-Que for the gender reveal dinner.  And it goes great with honey.  Then I wanted the cornbread to be in cute little bee shapes.  How can something so cute, bee so time consuming?

Bumble Bee Jell-O Parfait!

In reality, a bumblebee parfait doesn't really sound good, it sounds like something you might eat if you were on a reality game show.  And it would be a game show I would lose because I'm not eating any kind of insect.  Ever.  I added a bumblebee to the stem of the glass and that's why they are now a bumblebee Jell-O parfait.  And you should see the way I served the chips!

Bumble Bee Cake Pops!

When working on the desserts, I always try and come up with something new.  I wanted to make cake pops, but Bumble Bee Cake Pops are nothing new, in fact they've been buzzing around for years.  So I was left with a challenge...to come up with a new and unique Bumble Bee Cake Pop.

Bumble Bee Topped Cupcakes!

So many ideas were buzzing around in my head, but I just couldn't come up with the idea for the cupcakes.  Until the day before the party.  How about a little bee topper?

Honeycomb Candy!

I did it!  Yes, I was patient and followed the recipe to a T and it worked.  Like usually when I follow a recipe, I don't follow it to a T, maybe a t, because I become impatient.  This time I didn't stir the pot just like the recipe said and low and behold I had honeycomb candy!

Honeycomb Cake!

First it was going to be a Bee Hive Cake, but decided to do something a little different and make a Honeycomb Cake.  First attempt was a little messy, well actually a complete disaster.  But that's when I try even harder, to complete the task that didn't go as planned.  After learning from my first mistakes, I was able to complete the Honeycomb Cake!

Honeycomb Cookies!

It's wouldn't be a party without sugar cookies and it wouldn't be a BEE themed party without Honeycomb Cookies.  Truly the easiest cookies to make, with just a bit of planning.
