Bunny Turns 5!

As you probably know, I have a bunny. He’s cute and fluffy and loves to eat (don’t we all?). However, Cowboy is a little different than other bunnies because at age 2, he got sick and became both blind and deaf. His lifestyle has surely changed, but he’s a happy lil guy with a great community that loves him.

Whenever I leave town, I feel so comforted dropping him off at the bunny motel at Stargazing Farm in MD. They take great care of all the farm animals who need extra love.

Onto the food! This year’s party was garden themed and there were vegetables on every inch of the table- fondant veggies, veggie cookies, veggie pie, and of course real life veggies. Here are some photos of Cowboy’s hoppy birthday —

If you’d like to throw your own garden birthday, check out my Etsy shop for graphics, signs, and invite printable files! I suggest going to your local farmers market to buy their extra pallets, containers, and vegetable boxes.

Cozy Mountain Bachelorette Cookies

I recently planned my sister’s bachelorette party in the mountains of Park City, Utah. The attendee list was a group of girls mostly from California & Texas- not really snow-friendly places. Since the priority was staying warm and cozy, everyone got matching monogrammed buffalo check pajamas from Etsy.┬áNext, my cookie mind spiraled and I was soon set on making red and black plaid cookies. But how?

After a lot of research and a couple impulse Amazon purchases (like this airbrush machine– no regrets), I started whipping up some cookies to match the cozy mountain vibe of the whole weekend.

Here are the deets:

Cookie base: vanilla sugar cutout cookies – use a recipe without baking powder or baking soda
Airbrush machine: Cake Boss brand from Amazon
Airbrush food coloring (gold and black): Americolor Mist airbrush colors
Gel food coloring (navy and green): Americolor gel coloring for blue hashtag cookies
Edible paint (red): Edible Art Paint from @sweetsticksau for red base (I don’t like the amount of dye that is required to get a bold red royal icing, so I did a white base and painted the red on top)
Text: Wilton tips #1 and #2
