Cookies on the Lane

You know how much I love a theme, so when I was asked to do cake and cookies for a bowling party, I was game!
Other than the dino cake I did last year, this is the only time I've carved a shape out of cake.  I really wish that I had taken pictures of the cake step-by-step.  It was a lot of fun to watch it come together. 

I hope the birthday boy got a strike!

As always,

Cookies and Cupcakes!

I met someone.
Someone who makes phenomenal cupcakes.   (Hope I didn't get your hopes up, mom.)
Her name is Molly. 
She has this cute cupcake shoppe and boutique on the corner of Washington and Pleasant Home in Augusta. 
She sells all sorts of cute cupcake-themed gifts...and of course, cupcakes.
Tuesdays are Mango Tango days...I might have to stop by today to satisfy the craving I've now stirred up. 
You can visit her website to view all the other amazing flavors she offers.

She also sells these -
Cookies made by Sweet B!

So, you can think cookies AND cupcakes!
For all your cupcake needs, Molly will surely help you out.

And when you're thinking cookies...
I'll be here!

Cookie Bliss

So, there's this cute salon in the Summerville area in Augusta.  It's adorable.
It happens to be where I get my hair cut.  The exciting thing is that Mary, the owner, knew about Sweet B's cookies even before I started going to see Brittany at her salon.  Isn't that cool?!  People are talking about me!  In a good way! 
Well, Mary wanted some cookies with her logo on them to pass out to the other businesses around the area to let them know about Bliss.  I was happy to oblige!
(Told you is was cute.  It's even cuter inside.  And blissful.)

So...I am extremely proud of these.  I didn't think I was going to be able to put the flower on it without it looking wonky.  (Yes, that's a technical cookie term.  Just trust me.)

But it worked! 

The funny thing is, I did these in the midst of making the 400 Augusta cookies.  So, they were a nice break from yellow and green!!
Thanks so much, Mary, for thinking cookies!  I'll be happy to bring you cookie bliss anytime!
And I'll see you next week, Brittany!

As always,
Think Cookies.

Think Cookies...aaannnnd GO!

And now begins the segment of my life where I focus on cookies. 
That's right.
I will be thinking cookies, mostly full time. 
(I mean, I've got a few other little side gigs, but my main thing is now this.  Cookies.)
If you haven't noticed, I've already been making some adjustments in preparation. 

Think Cookies.
That's me.

That's me, too.
(The link just brings you back here...I'll have a full website...eventually.)

Oh, yeah.  And you can follow me on twitter.  Guess what my name is.  Thaaat's right!

You might ask yourself, why think cookies?
I challenge you to think of an occassion that cookies would NOT be good for...(aside from things like a Diabetic Convention or a Gluten Allergies Anonymous meeting)
But your regular occassions...
Birthday gifts 
That's right.  As a gift for the person who has everything or you don't have a clue what to buy.  Perfect for any age.  I mean, come on, who doesn't love cookies?
New Baby
What new mom doesn't deserve cookies? 
(Don't leave out any older siblings! They need special cookies, too!)
Party Favors
Who needs a bag full of stuff?
And after all you spend on everything you put in there, you could probably get a delicious, home-made, personalized cookie for less money. 
Thank You/Hostess Gift
Whether it's for party hosting, house-sitting, or just being there, it's a perfect way to say "Thanks!"
House Warming Party
You may not know what their kitchen colors are to buy them towels to match , or if they prefer red or white, but chances are, someone in that house likes cookies.
Thinking of You
Regardless of why they're down, a jar of home-made cookies says, "I care about you."
The fun part about cookies is that you can say congratulations for anything! "Congrats on the promotion!" "Congrats on your engagement!"  "Congrats on shaving your mullet!"
Your Logo On a Cookie
Have a logo or theme for your business that you want to see on a cookie?  Cookies are a perfect give away for prospective or current clients/customers.
For your neighbors, for your kid's teachers or bus driver, for your in-laws that you never know what to give.

The list really could go on...tailgate party, Bunco night, christening, dinner party, baptism, tea party, wedding shower, retirement, farewell, bar/bat mitzvah, girl's beach trip...

Obviously, I've been doing a lot of thinking...about cookies. 
I just want you to think cookies, too!
And when you think of a reason for cookies (listed or not), email me! At
(Yes, there will be bumper stickers, t-shirts, koozies...)

As always,
Think Cookies.
