This month I plan on blogging all of my crafts and creations from the past 6 months or more since our move (and a little before) that I’ve meant to post but haven’t. I have cookies, crafts, recipes and more to photograph and put up on the blog. I’m excited to share all of it […]

Another cake cookie that my mom made. The cake shape lends itself to so many possibilities. These cookies were based on Bridget’s Anniversary cake cookies from Bake At 350. Her step-by-step tutorials are so helpful. There are tons of informative videos on the site she founded: University of Cookie.
