Prison Cookies???? Yes that is what I said!

 It has been so long since I have done a blog post. I wanted to share these cookies that when I got the order I was thinking...."really??? you want what??!!"

One of my best customers sent me a text saying she was in need of some cookies. Her text said that she had a friend getting out of Jail and wanted to give cookies to them as a joke to make light of the whole situation. I can honestly tell you that this was the most interesting cookie request I have received to date.

After I got the request I started thinking of what I could do and I saw some "cute" clip art of a prisoner behind bars and I thought he had to be cookied.


Of course handcuff cookies were in order. I used this eye Wilton glasses cookie cutter to make them and trimmed the edges and then squeezed the sides down. You can get this cutter in this set here.



I then used the Sugarbelle bus cutter to make police car cookies! This cutter is so awesome. I have used it a few different times already but not as a bus. If you want to order one you can at this link on Karenscookies.net














The first time I used it was as a moving truck.
Then as a regular truck 


And here are the police cars I did from the cutter. I actually trimmed the top down a bit on these. And these were my favorite. 


I decided to do some minis to spell Free at Last!


It started out as a pretty strange request but ended up being one of my favorite sets!

Thanks Leslie for the order :)

The possibilities are endless and will make your event even more memorable by adding edible image cookies.

Here are just a few ideas to get the ball rolling.....


Business logo... want to promote your company in a "sweet" way? Your logo can be printed and put on any size cookie you want to hand out to customers at your event, business luncheon, or employee.


I even did my own logo and I love it! Maybe I will start using them as a business cards for special events.


How about a baby shower or 1st birthday, or any age.....


Customize your parents anniversary party by putting your sweet parents on a cookie....


Here is an example of a cookie you could do for Father's Day or a milestone birthday.... (this is my Dad, you got to love the lamb chops he had)....


Wedding or bridal parties: Take your event to the next level by having the lucky couple's picture on the cookie, you could put them on the dessert table, have it as a wedding favor, or even a thank you gift to your wedding party/guests....


Graduation time: Personalize your son or daughter's graduation party with their picture on a cookie mixed in with a themed cookie platter...


Christening/baptism.. Here are some cookies I did last month for a baby baptism, they were cookie favors for the dinner celebration party guests....


Another shot of logo cookies on a platter...

New Home Cookies

My good friend wanted to give cookies to her brother and his girlfriend who just bought a new home. I love when she tells me to just come up with something on my own.

Cookies for a couple who just moved into a new home!


Any place can be a home as long as your heart resides there. I thought the stacked heart cookies was a cute idea.


Some plaques to welcome them home and congrats on building a new house!


This cutter is Sugarbelles design that can be found here and Karen's Cookies. It is a school bus cutter but I turned it into a moving van. I have seen so many clever ways to use this cutter it is a great cutter to have.























Thanks for the order Laura and I hope that they loved their home cookies!

Sports birthday, basketball and soccer cookies!

For a young 10 year old who lobes BYU and sports. 



Basketballs are pretty simple and round cookie with orange icing and black lines. Then I thought I should make it a bit more realistic and decided to add a BUNCH of dots for texture..... that took a little time.

Told myself I would not do them like that again but every time I do a basketball I end up doing it!

Bacon cookies??? It all about Pork!

One of my best friend father-in-law wanted to get some cookies as a practical joke for a friend of his. I don't really know the whole story but I guess they go back and forth playing jokes on each other over many years. Well the friend is Jewish and so he wanted to send him some "kosher" cookies for his birthday. On the box I had specific instructions to label as...

Southern Kosher Cookies
(The Ultimate in Bad Taste) 

He just asked me to write out the names of different pork products on the cookies but I thought it would be fun to add some pictures as well. This is what I cam up with. I used edible ink pens to do the drawings.





I thought it was strange at first but I think they came out cute in the end!!
Thanks Ed and Evonne for taking me out of my comfort zone. :)
