Huminska Dress shop opening

I fell in love with the Huminska Dress shop when I saw her stand at Grand Central Market at Christmastime one season about 10 years ago. After that I made it downtown to her store where I bought my wedding dress, rehearsal dinner dress, and at least 5 more dresses although not at the same time!  I love Huminska’s one of a kind dresses because they are so easy to wear and look incredible. I wore them while pregnant and still wear them now – they are timeless. Every year for her Winter sale, my husband and I, and now our two boys go downtown to Huminska and I usually end up with something beautiful. When I found out Huminska opened a new shop on Mott Street I was so excited. I always loved her logo – a Tiffany blue silhouette of a dress form. In my opinion it is the perfect logo – simple, elegant, classy – exactly like her dresses. So I had a great idea to make a cookie for her. My husband made the stencil for me and I drafted two cookies at first – one cookie in white frosting on a plain black cookie and one with a white background with a black dress. But then I had the inspiration to make the background the Tiffany blue to match her website and a black dress. I emailed a picture to the owner, Janice, and went downtown to present them to her. She loved them and I was so thrilled. I made 100 cookies for the opening of her store and got an incredible new dress! Thank you so much Janice for the opportunity!

Superhero party

I cannot believe my son turns four years old tomorrow! All I can think about is how small he was when I brought him home from the hospital and how scared I was.  I wanted to make his party special so I originally started out making a Batman cake, but of course, my son wanted to add a couple of other superheroes and there wasn’t any room to write Happy Birthday on the cake.  A lot of planning took place: rocky road cupcakes with a marshmallow baked in the center, superhero mini cookies for the party goers to take home , and a small wooden peg superhero doll. I will post photos soon!

Christmas cookies

Christmas felt like it came much too quickly this year – but then again, I think it seems that way every year. I would liked to have baked more cookies this year, but I ran out of time and didn’t start early enough. I made gingerbread boys and girls for my son’s class at school and a gift platter for the awesome staff there as well. I am starting to find more uses for my current cookie cutters through the inspiration of other cookie bloggers! I made some Christmas tag cookies for friends and Santa of course, by using a Halloween tombstone cutter. I really like the way it came out. Next year I will start earlier, and experiment more! Happy Holidays!

Halloween

  

This Halloween  I made a bunch of vampire and frankenstein cookies for my son’s Halloween party at school. I was inspired by some Halloween stickers from Trader Joe’s.  My family and I had a lot of fun this year dressing up as Superheroes and trick or treating.

Birthdays

  

Today was my son’s 2nd Birthday and he loves Elmo – just like most 2 year olds I think! – so I decided to go with an Elmo theme for his birthday party – Elmo cake and Elmo cookies! We had a fun, sugar-filled party!!!
