Happy 50th Cookies

Pin It

 So back in June, I did some birthday candle cookies for my daughter's bestie.  They were darn cute and I referenced Maryann the Cookie Artisan who has the most impressive Flickr stream ever.  Honest.  She is an artist with royal icing, and her 40th birthday platter was my inspiration.  I had the pleasure of meeting her at Spring Fling for cookie people in Louisville, and she is the kind of person you wished lived on your block, was on your PTA, hung out at your family reunions...high energy and genuinely nice, besides her kick a** cookies!  She did an entire session on creating platters and shared many of her stunning creations with us.  She has an artist's eye, and she helped us find that.  I love making platters for my  family, my co workers, friend' birthdays,  kid's showers, holidays, their graduations, First Communions, and even sports teams.  Truly, that hour with Maryann and her slide show taught me a lot!

Her platter of 40 birthday candles and the fire extinguisher has been copied many times.  I couldn't resist.  The only other thing I could think of making 50 of for my friend Denice, was dresses, as she is a clothes horse.  And I mean that in the nicest way.  She dresses impeccably, and has dressed me well as of late too!  But I thought the birthday candles would be great.  They are a great eating size, fun to decorate, and 50 makes a stunning platter!  So Happy Birthday to Denice and many thanks to MaryAnn.
