Sugar Cookie Shift

As you may know, I had to put the kibosh on shipping orders for the summer.  I really, really don't like to turn people away, but it's seriously just so hot out there, that I keep reminding myself it's for the best.  And a silver lining to not shipping is that I'm suddenly more available for last-minute local orders!

Orders placed through my Etsy shop have kept my calendar pretty full, and I often get completely booked up a month in advance.  Which is pretty awesome, really, but it also means that when local people call me, I usually have to tell them that I can't fit in their order.  But, this summer has been blessing me with a lot of orders for local delivery, and I couldn't be happier about getting to meet clients in real life :)

Clients who purchase items like Sugar Cookies with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting, topped with White Chocolate letters to match their company logo.  I made a few extras last night as just-in-case cookies, and I may or may not have sampled a few already.  And I have it on "good authority" that these taste sooo, soooo good.  Man, do I love a good chewy sugar cookie with soft frosting!

For you lucky people who order locally, this is how I package up both cookies and cake pops.

Circles of Love

Happy mid-July, Sweets!  I disappeared on you while this heat has left me feeling incredibly without having accomplished much.  Booooo!  But I did want to share a few photos from this weekend.  I made 216 cake pops for a wedding here in Atlanta.  

The groom built the stand with drilled holes for each of the cake pops.

And I filled it with 5 styles of cake pops, to coordinate with their wedding theme and colors.

"A" is for Amazing, right? :)
