One of the challenge's of running a cookie business is that my girls see tons of cookie ideas pass through the bakery. And, when it comes to THEIR birthdays it's a big production to put together the cookie plan.
So this year, for Cecelia's 6th birthday party, she asked for a kitten tea party! How did I do? I made mini cookies, custom cake toppers, and teacup and teapot cookie favors!! Check out the details below!
And of course there were a million other things going on this same week. I did find a few minutes (during the girls piano lessons) to sketch out a few ideas.
I used these teacup and teapot Ann Clark Cutters: Click here to view them in our shop!
There was 'tea' at the party. Here's the birthday girl pouring tea (raspberry lemonade) for her friend.
These custom cake toppers were a highlight at the party!
I purchased clipart from Jessica Weibel, Miss Kate Cuttables, and the Lovely Memories. I merged the images together to make the toppers...
Then I cut them out of the dough by hand. A little extra work, but it was worth it for only three cookies!
The finished cookies were similar (but not exact). I decorated as best as, but it was 10 pm, so I was rushing a little bit.
This was my favorite, the cake with cake!
I also made a cat pouring tea...
And, a kitten balancing 3 teacups on her head!
If you're wondering if the extra effort was worth...that is a YES!
3+3 = 6!
And the next day, when all the guests have left and the party is over, there is still a very special treat to enjoy <3
I hope you enjoyed this peek at Cecelia's celebration!!!
