I love when each new season arrives and brings fun Holidays. I love Thanksgiving because it involves lots of food and baking. I think this past season I made 14 Dozen of the turkey cookies. That is a lot of candy corn. I made the sunflower for the pumpkin out of white modeling chocolate. I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Santa's Workshop

Every year I make Gingerbread Houses. I never really get around to making one for my family. This year I will! This house was inspired for the lady who ordered it. She is having all of her grandchildren over this year, and I thought it would be fun to have it be Santa's Workshop. I made the windows out of crushed candy so it glows when I put Christmas lights inside. I just need to make the base for it!

I can hardly wait for Christmas. When I saw these cookie cutters I had to have them. I made the flower out of icing before hand. I used a brush embroidery technique. After they dried I appliqued them to the cookie. They turned out better then I thought they would.

"Gobble, Gobble"

Theses are bound to be popular with little kids. My children just look at them and drool. They love the combination of candy corn with the yummy sugar cookie.

the not so scary "Scarecrow"

There is something about scarecrows and Thanksgiving that I just love. These are fun for neighbors and friends!

Gingerbread Scene

I thought it would be fun to create a scene with a big gingerbread cookie rather than making a gingerbread house. My kids are going to take these to their teachers at school for Christmas.

Idaho Falls Temple

Theses cookies were made for some Young Women in the area. They had a focus on going to the temple.

I made these for a baptism. C.T.R. stands for choose the right. These little symbols are found on rings to help children to remember to choose the right.

busy "bees"

I made the flowers with royal icing on a lily nail and let them dry a couple of days in advance. These are fun in the spring or summer!
