Back to School – Already!

Back to School Wafer Paper

Back to School Wafer Paper

Is it already that time of the year? We are amazed with how fast the warm summer months are cruising by – but enjoying every second of and we hope you are too! We just got these fab new Back to School Wafer Paper patterns in and wanted to share with you! The patterns are truly too cute for words! The collection includes colorful wafer paper globe, composition book, dictionary pages, and Dick & Jane book pages. A great project to start the kids off on the right foot for their first day back at school – what child (or adult, for that matter) wouldn’t love seeing these in their lunch box?!

For the globe we used our Stainless Steel Globe Cookie Cutter, for the open books we used our Book Cookie Cutter  and for the composition book we used a simple rectangular cookie cutter. Patterns are sized perfectly to fit these cutters.

Make perfect cookies every time with our No Fail Sugar Cookie Recipe, Royal Icing and Edible Clear Writing Gel for securing the wafer paper images.

We are stocking up everything in our Back to School collection – check it out HERE.

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!
