Celebrating Summer Birthdays

It’s not quite officially summer – but it is FINALLY starting to feel that way (at least in our neck of the woods) and the sunshine is much needed! The sunshine has us thinking about summer birthdays…pool parties, bbq’s, picnics, spending time with family and friends and of course, celebrating the Fancy way with fabulous treats and colorful decorations. We’ve partnered once again with our  good friend ArtGirl TM who is creating handmade sets of six sugar cookies shaped like candles and shipping them in a cute gift container. These colorful cookies measure approximately 4″ tall, are made with all natural ingredients and are NOW available on our website. Perfect when your your in a pinch and looking for a pop of color for a party. They are almost too cute to eat…almost! We love the idea of popping them in a batch of cupcakes decked out in colorful baking cups to match! We love ArtGirl and her fun website…check it our for decorating inspiration! Iif your up for an afternoon project – try your hand at making candle shaped cookies at home with our Candle Cookie Cutter, No Fail Sugar Cookie Recipe and a batch of royal icing. YUM!

Also for the summer birthday season we can’t get enough of Cake Pops! Sure -they are all the rage, but for good reason! Look how festive they are decorated in rainbow colors, sprinkled with white non-pareils and dressed up with a Happy Birthday Cake Pop Skirt?

One look at this unique little cookie and one is taken back to childhood. This whimsical themed cookie cutter screams birthday and wedding like no other. New to the Fancy Flours line up are these dazzling cookie texturizing sets. This one comes with the topsy turvy cake cookie cutter and three different texturizing mats. You can use the texturizing mats on unbaked cookies, leaving an imprint in the dough itself or on frosted cookies to leave in an imprint in the frosting. Take it a step further and imprint into rolled fondant. Attach the fondant cut-out to your cookie.
