Hong Kong Cookies

Hong Kong Cookies

Last week I made cookies for a fundraising event.  The theme for the event was “My Hong Kong” so I really wanted to capture the iconic and unique aspects of this vibrant city.   What could be more Hong Kong than the bauhinia flower which graces the flag of the city and the instantly recognisable skyline of Hong Kong Island?

I was told the cookies went down  a treat at the event and I hope they were able to raise a good deal of money!

Farmyard Party

Well you can’t have a farmyard party without farm animals can you?  For our farm themed party, we made a number of sweet treats to go with our tractor cookies.  We had a herd of marshmallow sheep cupcakes.

And a pen full of pig-pops.  These were super popular and disappeared with astonishing speed.  The little cake pops are just the perfect size for little toddlers to munch on!

And lastly the tractor cake.

And here they are all together:

Many thanks to the wonderful Maria of Sugarbee who gave us a helping hand.  You’re the best!

Get ready for some farmyard fun!  Here are some colourful tractor cookies that I made a little while ago for a fun farmyard themed party for a little boy.  The birthday boy in question loves tractors and farmyard animals and so it was the perfect theme for him!

Enjoy! Bespoke Events was responsible for designing a number of aspects of the party: the invites, cake and other sweet treats, decorations and party bags.

Stay tuned as we cover the party in the upcoming posts!

Brush Embroidery Cookies

Mother’s Day is about a month away now.  If you are anything like me, you’ll remember it bright and early and then forget to do anything about it till it’s much too late.  Anyway, I came across these gorgeous brush embroidery cookies which I thought would be perfect for the occasion.

I think they would make very pretty favours for a bridal shower too or perhaps a sophisticated young lady’s birthday.

Calendar Cookies

Calendar cookies

I came across this idea for Calendar Cookies and I thought they were just fabulous!  They’d be perfect as favours for a wedding, or bridal shower – what a great way to remind people of the special date.  Or if you are feeling particularly brave, perhaps as favours for a baby shower.  You never know, the baby might surprise everyone and pop out right on time!

Cameo Cookies

As you know I love customising things.  And what can be more personalised than these cameo cookies?  I love that they would be essentially unique to you (or whomever you ordered them for) as it’d be your face on it!  Wouldn’t these be perfect as birthday party or wedding favours?

OR as a very cool item for a baby shower, we could do the cameo using an ultrasound image of the baby’s face.  I was always staring at the ultrasound pics when I was pregnant, trying to make out from that fuzzy image what my baby might look like.  This would be a perfect way to “show” your unborn baby to your guests!  We could also make the cameo as a centrepiece cake for the event.

Tea Bag Cookies

I’m loving these tea bag cookies, such a clever idea and tasty too with the chocolate dipped base.  I’m particularly taken by their slightly browned edges, the sepia tones add a certain vintage quality to them!  Wouldn’t they be perfect for an afternoon tea party or perhaps a tea-party themed bridal or baby shower?  Just gorgeous.

I would perhaps make the cookies with an infusion of Earl Grey or Matcha (Japanese green tea powder) to add a bit of extra tea flavour.  And the tags or the cookies can be customised with a name if they were to act as favours for an event.
