    I had the distinct honor and pleasure to be able to make Beautiful Baby Braden some cookies for his first birthday.

    My BFF Laura gave me a napkin to work from.  When I saw it I thought…how cute!

    Then I looked a little closer and realized I was in trouble.  I always freehand cookies…  but here someone wanted something specific… what was I going to do????

    This is what the napkins looked like.

    And here is what I came up with.

    I drew a monkey on a piece of cardstock, cut it out, then used that as a template to make the monkey cookies.

    In the picture the blue looks a little 'off'… I sure hope it didn't look that 'off' next to the REAL napkins… I'll have to ask Laura!

    The design is pretty simple, but I have never tried to replicate something like this before, so it was a big challenge for me.  I am so thankful it was Laura who gave me the challenge!  Even though I didn't get them quite right, I knew she would like me anyway.  🙂

    And knowing me, I couldn't leave well enough alone, so I had to make some more cookies for sweet Braden~with writing on them.  There is just something about a frosted cookie with no writing that makes me crazy!

    Last week was a busy but fun week… with chairs and books and cookies and laundry… and this week is even more busy!

    But that will have to wait until Sunday.  Or Monday.

    I hope to have more pictures and stuff for you to look at!  There is a lot to share… 🙂

    Blessings!

    First and foremost thank you for your sweet comments, those snarky comments had me on the verge of being ugly.
    Lastly OMG those cookies are AMAZING!!!

    Sooo adorable! You really need to start selling those cookies! They are truly the best frosted cookies I’ve ever seen!

    I saw these on Laura’s blog and I was amazed. For your “first” time holy monkey, girl! Love them. Ty would be so jealous. I sometimes wonder if he’ll ever outgrow Curious George. I kinda hope not.
    Can’t wait to see pictures from the shower. Have fun!

    oh.my.god. Your talent never fails to leave me with my mouth to the floor. Those look so amazing. Are you really Martha Stewart or something like that? wow. Totally amazing, great work!

    Oh my goodness… it is 11 PM at night here and you’ve totally made me want to go make some sugar cookies. They look so good…. yummy! I love the monkey design and all the writing… YOu’ve got some amazing talent there. I also love your photos…. you look at one and then want to keep on looking. Great job!

    I want your talent for cookie art! I’m so impressed with your work, it never ceasaes to amaze me!
    I totally understand busy 🙂 It is truly overwhelming sometimes! Praying that your busy can stay under control for you!!

    those turned out amazing! the monkeys are so cute!

    It reply to your comment: it is a bummer! But i think we are well on our way to getting it fixed, or so i hope. I am going to MVNU and going for early childhood education. As much as i wanted to go for photography, i was worried about it not being a job that will earn me enough to support a family when i get to that point in my life so i went for the “safer” option. I figure I can always build up my photography on the side and maybe even one day it will take over! =]

    AMANDA…these were the CUTEST things EVER!!! Everyone just got the biggest kick out of them and asked where Laura had gotten them!! Thank you for all your hard work and time on them…just one more jewel for your crown Lady!!! :O)

    Those cookies are FANTASTIC!!! You are SO talented!! I love them. Excellent job!

    They’re great!!! I love them!!

    I saw these on Laura’s blog and was blown away…Your creativity is boundless, unlike my 17 yard skirt 😉 Did Michelle say she had some snarky comments…MUST head on over to check out the snarkiness even though I have no idea who Michelle is…

    well, that kind of snarkiness makes me sad 🙁 did not realize the circumstances.

    Oh. My. Goodness. I am so wishing you lived close by. 🙂 My little Benjamin thinks he wants those cookies when he turns 1. Who am I kidding? I want those cookies when he turns 1. I’ll have to get my cake decorating sister to switch to cookies for the day!

    Those are awesome!!! You rock!

    These are just so adorable! I’m sure they’ll be loved. have a fabulous weekend!

    Wondering if you would share how you frosted these cookies? I bought a monkey cookie cutter with the intent to make these for my daughter’s first birthday, but the task has overwhelmed me. Don’t know where to start and afraid they will come out looking awful. You make it look easy!

    Don't Pass on Dessert!
