Baking Me Crazy!

I have some exciting news! I created my own Etsy Shop to spread my sweet love of sweets across the country! The name is so easy for me to come by because I do love to bake myself crazy, literally. I will be listing previously decorated sweets & random designs that I bake to showcase. There might not be a design you like because you’re just so fancy, contact me and I’ll get my creative mojo working. Hosting any sort of party or get together can get really expensive & hectic. Which is where I come in for all your baking needs! Let me do all the stressing for you! Purchasing cookies at Publix is awesome, I love their bakery, but something about homemade cookies is just on another level. More variety of treats will come with time & demand. I’m working on cupcakes & customized chocolates! All treats are handmade by me & decorated by me. A one woman show! When I bake for my fellow friends & family, they just love my sweets & creativity & I’m sure you will too! Try them out for yourself!

🎀Ladies In The Industry: Breast Cancer Charity Luncheon for REMAX Services🎀

I had the pleasure of customizing cookies for Ladies In The Industry: Breast Cancer Charity Luncheon for REMAX Services. The event hit really close to home so I was very excited to make 80 cookies! This was my first order of cookies that someone besides my mama purchased from me! Shoutout to my best friend Rebecca, the marketing goddess, who works at REMAX Services of Boca Raton for ordering cookies! All I was told were to make them appropriate for a Breast Cancer charity event & I had the perfect idea!

I’ve already made Breast Cancer ribbon cookies previously for my mother, so I figured I’d do it again! This time I had to make 80 cookies! I got so organized & planned everything from start to finish. As per usual, things didn’t go as planned. The cookies actually came out better than expected because of the mistakes a made throughout the way. I baked homemade sugar cookies made in my kitchen, made with love.

I designed 80 sugar cookies with 4 different designs using Royal Icing Doing the same design for a cookie can be boring so I’m glad I mixed things up. Packaging the cookies was also fun to make. I wanted to create a foldable paper with my logo & info as well as a breast cancer related quote to staple to the clear round baggie. I created this on a number of apps. Rebecca created my logo which I’m so happy about! Pinterest helped me find a quote that was appropriate for the event.

Since I wanted to fold the paper over & stapled the bag to keep it secure, I took my logo & flipped it upside down. This would create the look I’m looking for, trust the process. After I had those images, I went to an app that creates photo collages. It’s a long process & I will definitely do a blog post about it one day in the future.

The bagging of the cookies were bought from Michaels, perfect My favorite place to be! I packaged the cookies individually in clear round bag & they look amazing! The one thing I would do differently would package the cookies in a shallow box that fits 10 cookies rather than a bag. That would eliminate the staking of cookies. Some cookies broke, which I am ashamed of, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles. The cookies were placed on all the tables at each place setting! Super cute idea! This was my first of many customized cookies. Would I do it all over again after all the sleep lost for cookie?!? Yes, I definitely would! So excited to see where my baking takes me!
