LOve Wedding Cookies Pictures

Here are the pictures of the final product!!!

The Bride and the Groom

And my great satisfaction is when I read the feedback of my customers here it is Jennifer's :

Maria was fabulous and I already have a friend buying their favors from her! My LOVE cookie, inspired by the LOVE statue in Philadelphia by Robert Indiana, was a true replication and even in my gray and yellow wedding colors! Her attention to detail was impeccable. Each cookie is wrapped in plastic with a seal and then packaged with protective wrapping between each of the 150 cookies! She even gave us a few extra in case of breakage and made my fiance and I little bride and groom cookies as a gift. We cannot wait for our guests to see and EAT these treats. Thank you Maria!!!!!

So if you are looking for some custom cookies for your events contact me and I will be so happy to make them for you!!!!

LOVE Wedding Cookies

Finally the date arrive, I was almost feeling I was the bride to be....140 some Love cookies for Jennifer and Scott Wedding on its way to Philadelphia, the brotherly love city.

I had so much fun making these cookies, I like to do custom orders in which ones I have to learn something different and put my skills to the test, and this one was one.

First I ordered the cookie cutter that supposedly was the LOVE statue from Philadelphia, I tough that was going to be a lot of help, so I receive it, make the cookies and they turn out nice, but not like the statue at all, so I was not happy at all.

So I googled images of the statue, I liked it a lot is very simple and modern and  is just a simple word but with a lot of meaning, don't you think???

It was designed by Robert Indiana, the image first was originally designed as a Christmas card in 1964, the statue is made of Steel and has been on exhibit since 1970 in the Indianapolis Museum Art.The statue has been reproduced several times in a variety of forms and now is display around the world.

So after days on thinking how I will make it,  I decided to make the stencil, my husband is very good at it,  so he made it for me, he did several tries and finally we like one, so I made some cookies and it turn out good, I didn't have a square cookie cutter, so it was not perfect in the circle but it looked nice.

Jennifer's wedding colors are gray and yellow, so I did some samples for her

She liked them!!! I was so excited so I reserved the space for her cookies and I could not wait for the time to come to start bake them for her.

The time goes so fast that the date arrive very soon, so I start with the baking process, decorate them and the final product came out very nice, here are some pictures for you.

Attitudes Open House

Last December we were so excited because we baked a lot of cookies for the Attitude's Open house.

They send us the invitation for the event, it was Hollywood Glamour style, so we did some Glamour dolls, sparking high heels, ballet slippers, ballerinas, tutus and nutcrackers.


These are the Glamour dolls we made.

Attitudes is the cutest ballet boutique that I have ever seen, they have all the things a little ballerina could dream off,  like hair accessories, leotards, tights, pointe shoes, leg warmers, shrugs, bags, stationary,  ballet decor, Christmas decorations, etc.

We arrive at 4:15 p.m and it was crowded,  they were serving Champagne for the Adults and Sparkling cider for the girls and cookies for everybody!!!!

We were  so excited that everybody like and enjoy the cookies and we ate one as well, YUM!!!

Here are some pictures, I hope you enjoy them!!!

Sweet Valentines

Last week we didn't have school for two days due to the bad weather, we had some snow and it was freeeeezing, one night we had the same temperature as in Alaska!!! -12 F, and my daughter and I make some valentine's cards for some elderly people in New york.

I read in the Etsy newsletter, that they were going to need some volunteers and some cards to share with Citymeals-on-Wheels  so we did some and mail them to Etsy.

I am happy that we can share our cards with some people that need some affection, some Fridays I go to the Presbyterian Manor   to pray the Rosary and have some coffee with some ladies, I really like to share some time with them, and they really need some affection, so I am hoping we will take some to them too.

I didn't know what Citymeals on wheels was until last week, is a great organization that delivers meals to people that can't cook, can't drive or don't have the money to buy food and I am happy that we can share our love with them at least with a little Valentine.

I am happy to be part of Etsy, because they always care for others!!!!

I invite you to share your love and time with the elderly people on your family or community on Valentine's Day!!!

Producto terminado

Les quiero compartir las fotos de las galletitas ya terminadas, espero les gusten,

Un beso a todos

An unexpected gift

I am so happy to tell you this story, before Christmas my dear friend Dana came over and give me the cutest gift ever, She brought me some cookie cutter from Europe, a clown, a fleur de lis and Saint Basil's Cathedral from Russia.
At that time I didn't have the chance to bake and decorate the cookies, so when we came back from Mexico, I found the website of the cookie cutters, and woooow they have the most beautiful cookie cutter I ever saw, so I told My husband, I wish some of our friends  or family go to Europe so they  can buy some for me.

And then one day My husband told me: I think Carlos  (Dana's Husband) is going to Europe so I am going to give him some upgrade for 1st Class, ( He used to travel a lot in his other job, so he has some upgrade that we haven't used), I was so happy that somebody can use the upgrade, is always so nice to travel 1st class and more to overseas. and I more happy that my husband want to share it.

So then He told me maybe we can ask him to bring you some cookie cutters, and I said OH YES!!
So I google for some stores that may have them, it was hard because some were in other languages, any way I made my wish list.
Long story short, last weekend Carlos an Dana invited us to their house, we had such a good time, and good drinks and good food!!!
They live in the most beautiful old house I have ever seen (That will be another story), this is how it looks from the outside

And at the end Carlos give us the cookie cutters, I was so excited!!!! They are really cute, here is a picture.

Aren't they pretty??? And he bring some gifts for Miguel and Anilu, I think He is such a nice person and I believe that when you share something from your heart, you may receive a lot of blessings and I think that the best blessing is to have friends you can count on!!!!

We are so happy that God put The Ayala's in our life!!!!
God Bless you!!!!

Here are some pictures of the cookies

And later I will post the other pictures I have to go to cook something We Are Hungry!!!

Los dias mas frios de mi vida!!!

Ayer y hoy han sido los dias mas frios que he vivido en mi corta vida ; ) estabamos a -12 F, -24 Celsius, nevo casi todo el martes y un viento horrible, creo que era un Blizzard, cancelaron la escuela ayer y hoy,  no saben el gusto que nos dio, que no nos tuvieramos que despertar temprano y salir a esas temperaturas, porq' aunque estemos a -12 F si no hay tormenta SI HAY CLASES, o sea que nos levantamos tardisimo, porque era imposible salir de la cama que estaba tan calientita y ni queriamos asomar la nariz, lo unico malo es que Mich si tuvo que ir a trabajar ; (, nos la pasamos muy padre, se veia muy bonito, aunque cuando el viento volaba toda la nieve si me asustaba un poco.
Les pongo unas fotos para que las disfruten.

Besitos a todos.

Dyan's Peppernuts

We use to live in Texas, and now living in Kansas I have heard about to many different bake treats that I have never heard about, and pepper nuts is one of them.

On December my daughter performed in the Nutcracker, it was a wonderful show full of talented and incredible persons,  we had a very nice time !!! She had so much fun and learned a lot, we are so proud of all her hard work, she and all the dancers did a wonderful job.

I had the chance to spend time with some of the moms from the other ballerinas, we shared good times and off course we share edible goodies, yummm!!!

So Dyan was talking about all the cookies she baked and mention the paper nuts ( that was I understood), so I told her I have never try them, and she offer me to bring me some, and this morning I try them for the first time.

The name is  Peppernuts, they are soooo gooooood!!! She bring to different styles, both are very good, some are harder and with a nice anise flavor that remind me of some semas, a kind of whole wheat bread  my mom always has at home.

Ant the other ones are softer and full of flavor as well, I can't decide which ones I like the best, both are delicious.

Thank you Dyan!!!!!!!

Saint Valentine's Cookies

I remember three years ago I sold my first set of personalized hearts cookies to Jim, I was so excited that he bought them to give to his sweetheart on Valentine's day, she loved them, too!!!
But I didn't took any pictures to share with you, they were very cute, and I put them in a tin box, I think that the box was more expensive than the cookies, but I like the way they look in the box.

Here are some Personalized hearts cookies I just made this week:

You can see a better selection of Saint Valentine's Cookies on my Etsy shop.
