Beyond the Cookie!

 Are you a cookie decorator, cake baker or all around dessert maker? If you answered yes to one or all, keep reading. This is for you. I'm naming this post "Beyond the Cookie". When given the opportunity to be creative with products from The Cookie Countess, I went beyond the sugar cookie.

Valentine Cocoa Bombs!

HELLO 2021

So what's on trend for 2021? One thing I know is Cocoa Bombs! They were selling like hotcakes over Christmas and from the looks of things, they will continue their popularity well into 2021. I know, your Christmas decorations aren't even put away yet are they? And here I go posting something with hearts.

Silver & Red Christmas Dinner Table!

You've seen the cake, the appetizer display and now it's time to move on over to the bubbly and dining table. I knew when I started I wanted it to sparkle without glitter. I'm over glitter. You know the saying "everywhere she goes she leaves a little sparkle"? Well, they forgot the part that says she also cleans up the sparkle.

Silver & Red Christmas!

You've seen the Christmas Fault Line Cake of 2019, now it's time to see the display. I usually don't mix desserts with appetizers, at least not on the same table. 
This time I did and I think it worked. What do you think?

Fault Line Christmas Cake!

Today I'm sharing the cake I made for our family Christmas 2019. I know Christmas 2020 is so different but looking back, this makes me happy, hopeful and thankful. 

It's time to start thinking about your Christmas dinner don't you think? I'm usually planning in July, but thought you might find it annoying if I told you to start planning then, right? But now it should be okay, I'm mean I'm hearing Christmas carols and seeing decorations. Not just in the stores, but in homes. Like my home. Yes, I'm one of those that decorate as soon as the last piece of Halloween candy is handed out. And this year I couldn't wait to get out all of my decorations!

Today it's all about silver and red, including the cake.

Gingerbread House Decorating Party!

 It's now a tradition for me to host the Gingerbread House Decorating. This year I decided to host a Gingerbread House Decorating PARTY! Complete with a Gingerbread House Invitation. They were a little time consuming to make, but I only had to make three.

Sweater Weather!

 Well, it's almost here. Okay, it's actually here...Sweater Weather! At least it is in Colorado. And it's my daughter's favorite time of year, not only because sweater weather, but mostly because soon it will be snowy and cold. Her favorite! So with that in mind I decided to have a full on birthday party to celebrate some of her favorite things...

S'mores, Mountains and Sweater Weather!


Fall Cookies

Yikes! October is a couple days away, I can't seem to wind down the summer vibes and think about fall. Because you know what happens soon after? Brrrrrr...But after making these cookies and feeling the chill in the air (notice I didn't say anything about being cold) I'm kind of excited. Kind of.

Pool Party!

Here it is the end of June and no pool in sight. But I didn't let that stop me from creating an indoor pool party. I've had one before, but this time it started indoors and ended up outside. With so many pools closed, it's time to get creative, right?

Let's Flamingle!

Well people, I'm still entertaining my family! Yes, my days are filled with finding party decor to go with my next theme. It's part of my work out, lifting storage bins from the large stack to another and going through them one by one. Fortunately they are clear and I can mostly see what's inside. But it is true excitement finding things I had completely forgotten about.
