It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Lots of fun holiday orders this week packaged up and ready to go!

Showering Baby Patrick

How adorable are these onesie cookies?!  They were made for a baby shower in colors to coordinate with the nursery.  Sweet Patrick will be entering the world in just a few short months!

Royal Three Year Old

Princess Madeline turned three - what could be a better way to celebrate her birthday than with sparkles, crowns, and her favorite color, purple?!

Crown Princess (and Prince)

These fun and colorful crowns were made for a pre-school birthday celebration - naturally, pink for the girls and blue for the boys.  The sprinkles just made them more fun!

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Another sweet Addison turned four this fall, and she is quite the fan of rainbows!  When her mommy, Kristi, contacted me about making cookies for her, I jumped at the chance to do something for such an awesome, deserving family.  Kristi was one of my main inspirations both in starting Raspberry Girl and in deciding to donate a portion of profits to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  She is waging a tough, tough battle against Stage IV metastatic breast cancer, but you would never know it by her energy, enthusiasm, positive attitude, and devotion to being an awesome mommy, wife, sister, daughter, and friend.

Many, many prayers were said while making these rainbows for the above ladies and their family.

Are You Ready for Some Football?!

These cookies were made for Max's second birthday party, which was obviously football themed.  They were fun to make and even more fun to watch being eaten by his guests!

With the Super Bowl headed to Indy this winter, these would be the perfect addition to your Super Bowl party!

Happy Fall!

There are so many delicious goodies to sample in the fall.  I love everything pumpkin and apple, so it was quite fitting to make cookies in those shapes!  Add some acorns and pumpkin spice cake balls, and you have a pretty good autumn assortment.  These treats were for my first corporate client, made to welcome two new medical practices to the area.

Cake Balls

I completed my first order of cake balls last weekend for a baby shower.  In preparation, I concocted all sorts of combinations (orange and dark chocolate, blueberry, blueberry chocolate), which was so very fun! (My co-workers enjoyed eating the cast-offs!)

The final decision was for two different flavors: chocolate-chocolate and almond-chocolate.  The cake balls were yummy and just the right size for a little dose of sweetness.  I'm already dreaming up all the different possibilities for these addicting treats in the future!  Thanks to a wonderful repeat customer, Katie, for the business again!

A for Addison!

These monogrammed A cookies were made in Addison's favorite color for her 4th birthday!  Her mommy, Kristin, was so sweet to give me free reign in baking something cute for Addie to take to school.  Glad you liked them!

Evan turned three and had a John Deere-themed birthday party, complete with tractor cookies.  I don't know what the little boys at the party liked doing more, playing with their tractors or eating them!

Blue and Green Birthday

My former roommate Erin asked me to make cookies that coordinated with the invitations for her little guy's first birthday celebration (image via Shutterfly).

So I went with matching cupcakes, as well as fun 1s.  I think the birthday boy enjoyed them!

Sock Monkey

This fun birthday party order was one of my very first requests!  Charming Brady turned one at the end of September, and his party planner extraordinaire mommy, Katie, had all the details planned out way ahead of time.  The theme of their celebration was sock monkey, so corresponding cookies were made in the shape of monkey faces, bananas, and number 1s for the big one year old!

Dots and Chocolate

Oh, how much fun I had with this order!  My friend Katie was throwing a baby shower and wanted lots of sweet treats to coordinate with the mommy-to-be's nursery bedding, Coco Dot by Pottery Barn Kids.

To mirror the crib sheet, I created chocolate sugar cookies and decorated them with hot pink, light pink, lime green, and teal dots.  Vanilla cupcakes were made and swirled with fluffy frosting in the same colors.  Chocolate chip cookies were the final addition - perfect for the new mommy who craved them throughout her pregnancy!

It was fun to change up this order from that of the traditional decorated sugar cookie.  Thanks for your business, Katie! 


Isn't Katie creative?  She made this stand to display the goodies at the shower.

With This Ring

These fun engagement rings were requested by my friend Lisa for her sister's bachelorette party.  Love the sparkles on the diamonds!


I get a lot of requests to do cookies for children's birthday parties.  Inevitably a big part of the celebration is recognizing how old the child is, so number cookies make a great addition to the party spread!

If the Shoe Fits...

...EAT IT!

I made these sparkly glass slippers for a Cinderella-themed birthday party this summer.  How fun!

Dog Party

Anyone else familiar with the book Go Dog Go?  Well, it's one of my son's favorite stories, and he loves the fact that at the end, the dogs all gather on top of a tree to have a "dog party."  When I made these cookies, he immediately started calling them "Dog Party" - and it stuck!  The dogs can be made in a variety of colors - black labs would be perfect as well!

Red Hot

How cute are these chili peppers?!  Perfect for a Mexican-themed fiesta!  Just add the chips and salsa and margaritas!

Birthday Fun

I did a really fun order a week ago for a former co-worker of mine, Jen Harville.  She wanted to surprise her dad with some cookies for his birthday, so after coordinating a bit, we went with party hats, presents, and monogrammed circles.  I think they turned out great!  Thanks for your business, Jen!

Slice of Summer!

What's better than a slice of juicy watermelon on a hot summer day?  A watermelon cookie, of course!
