As I type this blog, my sister, brother in law, nephew & cat are 2 hours into a 13 hour flight to Shanghi. They will spend the next 2-3 years a few hours east of Shanghi. We all said our FAREWELLS at her sister & brother in law's, Charlee & Owen on Saturday (shssh.. I snuck in one last visit yesterday).
I was happy when Charlee asked me if I would bring sweets. I always jump at the opportunity
to bake and decided to make 3 different flavored cupcakes vs. fondant cupake toppers.
My California cutter, an airplane cutter (different one than the other Farewell party) and a scalloped square were perfect for this set of cookies. The California cutter is a bit large so I only made a few cookies with it.
Lemon cut out out cookies
Oreo cookie cupcake with Oreo buttercream
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (egg-free)
I used this recipe but added a little baking powder for taste
Reese's Peanut Butter Cup
simply stick a small reese's peanut butter cup in the bottom then fill with batter
Charlee found this idea online .. isn't it cute? I cut up old maps & stitched them to heavier cardstock, then sewed them on the ribbon. Super cheap to make too! Stop on over at her Etsy shop and look at all her cute baby bibs, blankets, boppy covers, etc.
