Lego Ninjago Sensei Wu Cookies

We are really into Ninjago right now so when a customer ordered Kai cookies, I wanted to do some Sensei Wu cookies just for fun.

The Kai cookies can be seen here.

We are slowly collecting Ninjago toys since they are pretty hard to get (at a decent price anyway) and Sensei Wu was our first purchase. Now we have Zane, Jay, and Kai (we still need Cole but are waiting for the big birthday for that one). And if you didn't know, you could get them hair! I had to buy Zane and Jay's hair individually on eBay from people who just sell Lego hair!

You can get Zane's hair here.

You can get Jay's hair here.

Kai's hair is from the Sleepyhead minifigure which you can see here. I found the hair by itself but it was cheaper to buy the minifigure on eBay.

Cole's hair is hard to find on its own but he has the same hair as this skater guy's hair which you can see here.

Check out Jay and Zane with their hair...

Check out our Ninjago Birthday Party here.

Gordon Cookies

This is Gordon, not Thomas the Train. He's the "big blue engine." The customer's son was turning four on his birthday so she wanted a "4" on the cookie instead of her son's name which is what I usually do for Thomas cookies. Gordon also happens to be the number "4" engine. I think he came out fairly well and thought the crow's feet was a major differentiator in distinguishing the difference between Thomas and Gordon!

You can see his friend Thomas (the cookie) here.

Doctor Cookies and Pregnant Lady Cookies.

These pill bottle and pill cookies were for a graduation party for a psychology major graduate.

Pink Elephant Cookies for a Baby Shower

Someone recently asked me to make elephant cookies like Marian's from Sweetopia (http://sweetopia.net/2011/08/elephant-baby-shower-cookies/) but in pink. I bought the same cookie cutter from Copper Gifts but my elephant seemed to have longer legs and a shorter trunk. So I decided against giving my elephant a booty like Marian's cookie - it just didn't look right with longer legs. The cookie cutters are all hand made so it makes sense that they vary a bit.

Baby Shower Cookies - Storks & Cityscape Onesies

These stork cookies were matched to an invitation

Here's the image from the invitation...

I also did cityscape onesies but didn't match it to the invitation above -  I wasn't sure how to get a cityscape look while only using two colors. It isn't supposed to be any specific city.
