Adventures in sugar, flour and life


Ok so maybe this isn’t a politically driven post and for that you can thank me!

I’m not a very political person and when Iowa started Caucusing I had NO idea what that was. But lets be real, it sounds dirty. I’ll just put it out there that the first thing that came to mind was male genitalia. So how does this have anything to do with sugar and flour? I’m so glad you asked!

A couple years ago I had a friend (now loyal client) send me a text stating she had an awkward question to ask. Since I had no insight on which direction this was headed, I let her proceed. Her question- Can you make penis cookies? Of Course I can! SO I went to my good friend google to find a proper cookie cutter as well as some inspiration. I tried (and I mean TRIED) to find examples that others had done and while there was no lack of images, not many were cookies. So I created my own and now its my thing…

This was the original set (pardon the poor photography skills)…

Since then they have improved leaps and bounds!


Recently I was asked to do a “special” set and was happy to do so…


My most recent set looks something like this…


They really are versatile and can be customized in many ways.

One year ago I had the honor of throwing my sister a baby shower for her second child. Since it was going to be a boy (the 1st a girl) I was allowed to go big! I spent months planning every detail and crafting until the wee hours of the night. Since they didn’t have a name chosen, we nicknamed baby boy Cosmo (big sister was Bertha- we have a knack for nicknames).IMG_1024

After much deliberation I decided to go with a denim and burlap theme. Lucky for me, I had a friend who had just cleaned out his closet and was getting rid of close to 10 pairs of jeans!!! I hit the jackpot! I immediately started cutting and crafting.




I used every scrap I could and couldn’t have been more pleased with how it all came together.





With all the details coming together, my biggest decisions were what to have for dessert, naturally. After countless hours of mulling it over, I decided on salted espresso chip cookies, dark chocolate peanut butter crunch bites, apple cobbler a la mode and sugar cookies.



One month later I was given the best thank you ever, my very own nephew!
