It's Snowing!

How perfect is it that as this post is being put together it's snowing outside! We expanded on a cute cookie from last year(does that vintage truck look familiar?), adding in words of encouragement-Let It Snow!, along with some snowflake touches for some glitz! The wonderful Abram from A.E. Landes Photography took this set and ran with it, and we're blown away by the warm and beautiful results!
{This one is a favorite-Lovin' the twinkly lights from the tree in the background}

Jump on over to Abram's website and check out his incredible portfolio!
And don't forget to enjoy the snowy weather!

*CookieCon Cookies*

A few weeks ago the two of us attended the first ever CookieCon in Utah and it was a blast! In a nutshell it was a 3 day event with 200 other 'Cookiers' (Sugar Cookie Decorators), and a few fantastic instructors who taught a bunch of different techniques. Part of the fun event was a Sugar Show-4 different set categories, and each attendee had the option to bring entries, 1 for each. We jumped on the opportunity and here are the fun results....
(A big huge thank you to Jen Anderson for these great last minute pictures! It was fantastic to see you!)

 {Wendy's Good Ol' Days Entry}
 {Wendy's Wild Card Entry-She won 3rd place Attendee Pick! These painted Cookies were a huge hit!}

If you're as in love with these painted Cookies as I am, you'll love that soon we'll be making this style available to you!

Brittanie's Fall & Winter entries were based off the fantastic work of  Annie from DigiMyWorld. Thank you so much for letting me borrow your sweet work for these cookies!

It's that time of the year that we love! Not only is the cooler weather here along with a change in colors, but we're reminded of how grateful we are for you! The customers who have kept us busy for these past 4 years, the great businesses that have opened their doors to us, and especially those of you who have shared our name with your friends and family. Thank you!

A recent event this past week was a great example of the people we love doing something great for others, and throwing a rockin' party while doing it! After the success Girl's Night out in Frederick, the ladies of Silk&Burlap decided to extend the giving spirit by throwing a Home For The Holidays event last Friday, donating 10% of all purchases to Friends of Meals on Wheels of Frederick County!

Snickety Snacks was there with a full Thanksgiving/Fall inspired table, and we gave it all away! Here are a few pictures of what we had set up

 Bite Size Acorns and Leaves, and Large Turkeys and Painted Leaves, and extra Large Plaque Cookies!
The definite hit of the night was our Cheesecake Cake Bite in Dark Chocolate! They're a new flavor option and were complimented by a seasonal flavor, the Pumpkin Spice in White Chocolate. We also had Lemon Cupcakes with Cheesecake Frosting and raffled off a gorgeous burnt orange Ruffled Cake in the same Lemon/Cheesecake flavor!

All of these treats are available for your Thanksgiving and Fall parties, so hurry and place your order!

This post is definitely overdue! A few months ago we chipped in on a fantastic Rainbow themed party that our photographer Andrea had created for her daughter's birthday. Can I just say, Andrea knows how to throw a serious party!
We tackled the dessert table and loved every inch of it thanks to the fun twist on the traditional rainbow colors!

Inverted Cake Pops, Marshmallow Pops, and Cake Push Pops
Colored Popcorn & Sugar Cookies based on the Party Invite

*Sprinkled With Fun!*

First, some wonderful news-We have a fantastic new photographer named Andrea, from Andrea Hallett Photography! Take a minute to jump on over to her website and ooh and ahh over her incredible photos. Andrea specializes in working with natural light, and the breathtaking results speak for her talent! We're so lucky to have her working with us, and couldn't hold off showing you our first little photoshoot with her!
It seems like so many birthdays are coming up in the next bunch of months, so with that in mind we created this fun 'Make A Wish' set, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Andrea's daughter was a perfect addition(and a very willing one!) to the shoot!
Would anyone else care for a slice of this cheerful cake?
 Sprinkled with Adorable Freckles is more like it!

There are big plans for Snickety Snacks in the works, and we look forward to surprising you with them!
-Brittanie & Wendy-

*For The Cherry Lovers*

Sometimes I come across a fun cutter shape and I just can't wait to put it to good use. These cherries were the latest example of that, and they were definitely inspiring! I love how well cherry red and aqua work together!
