A few weeks ago, I got my first 'gig' doing cookies for someone. A friend was hosting a baby shower for someone who was having their third baby... and she asked me to do cookies as favors for the party guests. It was an exciting event for me, and I'd be lying if I didn't admit that my nerves were on edge the whole week. I mean.. for the first time I was baking for a guest of honor that I didn't know!!!
Supposedly all turned out well... I've only had sporadic contact with the hostess since the event. The good news is that no matter what... I was able to get more practice in. and my shrink-wrapping is coming along rather well, too! (especially considering the SHAPE of these cookies)
also got a chance to play with backgrounds for the cookies. I'm finding that fabric backgrounds seem to take the best pictures for the cookies. While the wrapping paper offers great colors.. I always get a shine. and bonus! a friend of mine reminded me that fabric stores always have a TON of scraps for super cheap.... so look for (hopefully!!) some better pictures highlighting my efforts in posts to come.
speaking of things to come... February bake sale is this coming weekend. I had a request to make my biscotti again... and I have a new Happy Jane flavor in the works. Also? can you believe I've never done my cookies for the bake sale??? so yeah. I think some nicely decorated hearts are in order.
