Ph.D.-serts | Holiday Cookie Decorating Kits | Tampa Wedding Bakery

As this post goes live, there are only 65 shopping days left until Christmas!  WHAT?! That freaks me out a little! Those of you who have already started shopping – you are my heroes. I don’t know how you can be that organized. Seriously. I’m one of those people who is running to the post office on the last day to ship by Christmas and frantically wrapping gifts on Christmas Eve.

But this year can be different! Probably not for me. But maybe for you!  A couple of years ago, I developed a cookie decorating kit that is fully stocked with everything you need to make your holiday cookies beautiful.  It’s perfect for family gifts, and I love it because it buys me a few minutes of peace on a busy day.

The cookie kit! (shapes, colors, and sprinkles may vary)

When we sent the kit to some family friends a few years ago, these are the pictures they sent me back in return:

Ian and Max hard at work on their cookies...and, er, faces.Cookie masterpieces.

And last year, I let Mikaela (2 years old at the time) decorate her own cookies for Santa.

I unpacked the Holiday Cookie Decorating Kit and laid it out for her the morning of Christmas Eve.

The cookie kit unpacked and ready to go!She was so excited to get started!  After all, she sees Mommy working on cakes and cookies all the time.  Now, it was her turn!

Mikaela decorating her first set of cookies for Santa.She was so proud of her work.  I didn’t realize how many sprinkles she had been popping into her mouth until I asked her to smile for a picture.  What a big sprinkle-y grin!

Mikaela proudly displaying her decorated cookies and sprinkle teeth!We let the cookies on the kitchen counter to harden, and then we set the cookies out for Santa that night.  Mikaela was quite protective of her cookies, and poor Hailee just wanted to munch on one! “No, baby. These are for Santa!”

"No, baby!  These are for Santa!"Decorating cookies for Santa will be a new family tradition for us.  This year Hailee is 1 1/2 years old and will get to help!

If you’d like to order some Holiday Cookie Decorating Kits for yourself or for gifts, we’ll be taking orders through Friday, December 5, 2014 so that all orders arrive in time for Christmas.  If you live in the Tampa area and will be picking up your Kit, pick-ups will be available through Sunday, December 15, 2014.

The kit includes 2 1/2 dozen 3-4″ sugar cookies in your choice of theme (the Christmas Cookie Decorating Kit is pictured, but Thanksgiving would be fun too!), 3-4 colors of cookie icing, a variety of fun & festive sprinkles, and disposable decorating bags & tips.  Kits are designed for up to six cookie decorators, but additional supplies & cookies can be added for an additional charge.  The price of the kits also includes shipping anywhere in the continental United States, and shipping elsewhere is available for an additional charge.

Enjoy the fun of decorating cookies without the mess, the hassle of baking, and the clean up!  Cookie Decorating Kits cost $40.00 for the supplies listed above.*

*Cookie shapes, sprinkles, and icing colors may vary.

Ph.D.-serts | Baseball Birthday Party | Tampa Wedding Bakery

For all the parents of little boys out there, here is a baseball-themed birthday cake!  Everett was turning 2 years old, and his Mommy asked us to replicate a cake she found online.  The only change she made was to make the buttercream grass blue to match the printables she was using at the party.

Everett's baseball cake and cookie favors.

The cake was iced and decorated with buttercream.  The cookie favors were hand-cut and decorated to look like baseballs, bats, and gloves.

Ph.D.-serts | Lilly Pulitzer Cake and Flower Bouquet Cookies | Tampa Wedding Bakery

Country chic and vintage is in!  I think the only way you might have missed that is if you’ve been living under a rock.  Just teasing. But lace details, rustic elegance, shabby chic…they’re all the rage right now.

So when Chloe turned 18 (remember Chloe’s 16th birthday cake?), that’s what she wanted!  She chose a cake inspired by the Lilly Pulizer First Impression pattern.

Lilly Pulitzer-inspired birthday cake!

Lizzie Cakes Food Truck in Tampa, FL

You meet a lot of interesting people in the cake decorating world.  Some people stumble into cake decorating and stay for years and years, passionate about creating edible, decorated masterpieces.  Others find themselves following other paths – like food blogging or food photography or gourmet desserts.  One of my friends recently found herself buying and launching a food truck!  Wow!

She designed the wrap for the truck and I must say it looks amazing!  Love the pink and black zebra print swirly thing along the top and bottom.  The design is really eye-catching and stands out at a food truck rally.

LOVE the decoration on the LizzieCakes food truck! Continue reading

“Surprise, I’m Pregnant!” Cookies

We love helping families break the news about pregnancies to their families.  Usually, the big reveal is whether the baby is a boy or girl, but a few months ago, we were able to help a future Mommy tell her family that she was pregnant!

Maggie, a soon-to-be first-time Mom, asked us to make personalized cookies for her step-daughters.  The onesie cookies read “I can’t wait to meet my BIG sister Jaidyn/Mikayla!”  As you can see from the picture, the girls were thrilled with the news! Maggie's step-daughters with their personalized cookies. Continue reading
