  1. Noah, my nephew, turned one this past weekend! We have always called him our little "Honeybee", so we opted to throw him a First BeeDay Party! Of course this called for silly amounts of cookies and cake.. that is exactly where my skills came in handy!!
  2. The sugar cookies before they were baked.

  3. Below is the recipe that I used for my test run and they were so successful that I just had to make them again! This time I opted for Bee's and Bee hives and I personally think that they came out great!
  4. I found the perfect cutter on Amazon.com.. and you cant beat that price!
  5. To ice the cookies, I used a simple recipe that included powdered sugar, water, and food coloring! You just add more water and/ or powdered sugar until you get it to the desired consisitency. Using a piping bag I first added the yellow stripes, followed by the black and white.
  6. Here is a great video that will definitely help you with decorating cookies!

  13. These lemon curd filled puff pastry were simply made from baking Pepperidge Farms puff pastry cups and filling them with lemon curd while they were still warm. They were so simple and I think that they conveniently look like honeycomb!

  19. Noah had the best time at his 1st Birthday party! The amount of toys and cookies seemed a little overwhelming but he just seemed to be on such a sugar high that he didnt mind!
