Baby pram cookies

I have a lovely client who just loves these pram cookies she ordered, its so great for me to meet such wonderful people. I enjoy making others happy through my baking. These are a simple concept but they look so cute when they are all together.

Wedding Monogram Cookies

Wedding monogram cookies are a great idea for wedding favours, the guests love them and its something nice to represent the couple in any way they like. These ones were for Mick and Kirrilee and the theme of their wedding was black and white. They look so pretty packaged too.

Immy's monster party

I had the opportunity to create the cutest cookies ever! Little Immy was having a monster themed party where all the kids dressed up as little monsters, what a scream (pun intended)!! Esther from In a Pickle in Camp hill contacted me and I couldn't wait to create something that reflected the fun these kids would be having at the party. Immy loved her cookies so my job was done :)

Hens/ Bachelorette cookies

I love hens parties, it's such a great time catching up with all the girls and getting up to all types of mischeif, all clean fun of course! These cookies were for a french chic inspired hens party. I would have to say this cutter is one of my favourite! Full credit for the beautiful photography work must go to my dear friend Keren Brown of the Brown Trading Co.

Ballerina Cookies

I must admit I have been a bit  slack updating my blog. So be prepared for a big influx of pictures to be uploaded to my blog. These cookies were for a little girls ballerina party, I just loved designing these, there is something about pink and white that makes it so easy to work with.

The tutu's were laced with edible glitter, they added such a pretty sparkle, pictures don't do them justice!

Wedding cookies

I must apologise for being a bit quiet over the past couple of weeks. Its a busy life working full time and baking cookies, lucky I love baking the cookies...working full time, not so much, but hey, it pays the bills!
So I had the opportunity to make some beautiful cookies for a beautiful bride, the invitations were navy, ivory and gold, so I tied in the colour scheme into design and here is the finished product!

There is glitter in the middle of the bows, I love the touch of sparkle. I must thank my talented friend Keren from the Brown Trading Co for taking the pictures for me.
I made 150 of these and I survived!!! That's just about it for me, stay tuned as always

Roses are...... pink and aqua

Well today they were, I think I fell in love with piping roses. There was something therapudic about it, maybe it was because I was picturing how they would look on the cookies I was making for my client. I just wanted them to dry so I could use them right away! These cookies were for a 60th birthday, I loved the colour combination, pastels are always beautiful.

Next on the list are some easter cookies. I love easter, especially because I get to celebrate Greek easter the following week with my Greek family, no doubt I will be creating some cookies for both occasions! Stay tuned xx

I made it!!

Wow!! The first Valentines day at Glazed Bakehouse and boy was it busy! I will be honest with you, I didnt anticipate that just by starting the facebook page, it would generate so much interest in two days...and I am so greatful!! I had around 80 cookies to bake and decorate in a span of a few days, all whilst working full time!!! How I did it? I absolutely love cookies and everything about them so I had fun, I just didnt have fun not sleeping haha.

Thankfully I had my boyfriend (Dave) come over every night and help me wrap the cookies and clean up for me! I feel so lucky to have such great support from him (luckiest girl in the world maybe). Anyway, I can now focus on the future of Glazed and what direction I want to head in. I am loving the orders coming in and designing the cookies for all the unique requests.
So its a weekend to relax before I get back into it, Dave has surprised me and is taking me away for the weekend for my birthday (this week is an expensive week for the poor guy) and I can come home nice and refreshed and ready to bake! Stay Tuned!

February...the best month of the year!

So I love February, for two main reasons, my Birthday and Valentines Day! Not that I believe we need a day to tell that special someone how much you love them, but I love the hype Valentines day brings. Lucky I have a romantic boyfriend who loves it as much as I do and it's also good to have him around the house to eat the left over cookies. So to get in the spirit of love, I got busy making these babies...I love the colours of pink and red together, they just work.I also  must thank my dear friend Keren Brown of the Brown Trading Co for taking some beautiful pics for me.

Stay tuned for more cookies!

My first post ever!

OK so here goes! My first ever post for my new blog.I dont even know what to say (which is unusual for someone who can talk under wet cement). I guess the aim of this blog is to share my new passion for decorated cookies. I don't even know much about blogs and how they work but i look forward to learning along the way from the blog veterens out there!

I have always loved cooking and I have my mum to thank for that. I would always help out in the kitchen where I could and I guess I picked it up along the way without even knowing it. So how did I get the idea to start making decorated cookies you ask? Like most people, I have a full time job, and I never usually buy from the book club at work, until i saw all these pretty cookies in this book and i HAD to learn how to do that.

Well my first attempt...lets just say they tasted better than they looked, I had NO idea how to work with royal icing on cookies, so the research started and its all history. I have only been doing this for about six months, I cant wait to see my skills develop and I look forward to this journey. If only i could quit my day job and do this full day!!

Stay tuned for my upcoming cookie ventures, I look forward to what the future has to hold!

PS - Pictures coming as soon as i can figure this all out!
