Have you ever read the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books or even seen the movies? They’re geared towards a younger audience, as the story follows the experiences of a scrawny middle-schooler named Greg Heffley, but I can’t deny that even my friends and I had a few chuckles when we watched the films.
When I was asked to make “wimpy kid” cookies for a boy’s birthday party, I was incredibly excited. These cookies were such a pleasure to make. I made four dozen in total–two dozen with the cartoon version of Greg Heffley, one dozen reciting the “ZOO-WEE MAMA!” line, and another dozen that read “Happy Birthday”. It was definitely a treat to work with this fun and playful theme!
Thanks for the order, Andrea! I hope that Evan had a wonderful birthday party!
Angels and snowflakes and trees, oh my! This joyous day is finally upon us, and what better way to celebrate than with friends and family and a big plate of cookies? My kitchen has resembled what I imagine Mrs. Clause’s kitchen to be these past few days as I’ve finished up some last minute baking orders for the holiday season. But beyond the hustle and bustle of the holiday season (and last minute cookie scramble), this time of year is the perfect time to reflect on the peace in our lives and the people who bless us with love and care. I hope you all have some special people to celebrate this special day with. After all, that’s what Christmas is all about.
Well, that and sweets of course.
Christmas is just around the corner and I can’t wait to start filling my kitchen with the delicious smells of gingerbread, peppermint, and chocolate. But before I do that, I had a few cookie orders to complete. These cookies were made for my friend Ellen who just completed a yoga course. Congratulations, Ellen!
