 When I saw these "message-in-a-cookie" cutters from Williams Sonoma I had the same expression on my face as when I see a really cute baby :)  Making beautiful cookies CAN be easy!  Just slide in the customized message you want, roll out some dough, press the shape out, and bake.  The words will automatically imprint into the dough.  These look great with a little bit of royal icing embellishment or just as is.  Can't wait to try them out!

I've been hearing that the most popular time of the year to get engaged is between Thanksgiving to New Years.  Makes sense.  Just enough time to plan for a summer wedding, a season surrounded by family, and what's a better Christmas gift than a diamond ring?!?  :)  To my friends who recently got engaged and all those who rang in the new year with a new fiancĂ©e, congratulations!!!

A couple months ago I made gumpaste cake toppers for a friend's wedding.  Since then, there have been more orders for personalized brides/grooms.  Here are some photos of recent couples :)
