1st Birthday Pow Wow Party

I seriously have the best customers who send me the most adorable, creative party themes to work with.  How cute is this "pumpkin pow wow" party theme!

Roland's mom bought him this teepee from the Land of Nod, so we made matching teepee cookies for the party.

The party colors were black, white, kraft brown, orange, turquoise and gold.  The customer wanted to incorporate lots of arrows and triangles in the designs, so this is what we came up with!  I think the "ONE" cookies were my favorite, and I just love the pops of color and shine.

Roland's mom was also kind enough to send some pictures from the party.  How adorable is this table?!

Happy first birthday Roland!  I'm looking forward to making lots more birthday cookies for you over the years!

Fertility Doctor Cookies

I love some of the requests that I get for custom cookies.  When a customer wanted to send a thank you gift to her fertility doctor, I just had to say yes.

I mean, it's not every day that you get to make sperm and egg cookies!

I Love the 80s

When I got a request for 80's cookies right before I closed for maternity leave, how could I say no?!

80s cookies, pacman, MTV, mix tapes, boombox

I'm a child of the 80's and definitely loved rocking the mix tapes on my boombox :)  I was never allowed to watch MTV when I was little, which of course meant that I watched as much as possible every time I was at a friend's house ;)

nintendo cookies, Mario, Zelda, PacMan, Donkey Kong

I also REALLY loved my Nintendo.  The old school one, no Super Nintendo over here.  Mario and Tetris were two of my faves, along with Mega Man.  Remember him?!  No cookies of him this time, but there were some Donkey Kong and Zelda in this 30th birthday package :)

Corporate Logo Cookies

We do lots of logo cookies here at Jaclyn's Cookies, from very detailed to very simple.  

This was definitely one of our more detailed logos!  They were sent to the same conference of school psychologists that these cookies were created for last year.

And these were a much more simple design that was created for PantryChic.  If you haven't heard of them you should definitely check them out!  Super cool invention for bakers :)

And finally, these were created for the Virginia Film Festival that is held every year right here in Charlottesville.  They ended up being a deceptively detailed design with allll those little film strip details to flood!

Little Lamb Baby Shower

This was another baby shower theme that I just adored!  It was a "Mary Had a Little Lamb" baby shower in pretty pastel colors.  I thought the color scheme was just gorgeous :)

I love that I get requests for so many creative party themes.  My job is completely different every week.  It definitely keeps things fun!

pretty baptism cookies

Changing it up from the last few posts to show you these sweet baptism cookies.  The pale pink, green and white color scheme was so pretty for these cookies.  I wish that I took more pictures!  I think that the monogrammed "E" with a subtle floral background was my favorite.

Realistic Science cookies

I've done some cutesy science cookies in the past, but being a scientist doesn't usually involve very many test tubes and beakers.  Since I was a scientist in my former life, I get a kick out of merging cookies and real-life science :)  Here are a few of my recent attempts!

These were a Christmas gift for a biotech group that included some of the equipment that they use: tanks, chromatography columns, bioreactors.  I also created some HPLC and cell viability curves and some schematics of the molecule that they work on :)

science cookies, chromatography cookies, biotech cookies

These cookies were actually a gift for my husband's team who work on the Gardasil vaccine.  The silly little men are actually cartoon versions of the HPV molecules that the vaccine targets (which just goes to show that I can turn anything into a cookie, LOL!).  The other cookies are filters and other products that they use in the process to make the vaccine.

science cookies, virus cookies

And finally, a gift box for a scientist that included more chromatograms and a Soxhlet extractor that he uses in his lab!

Kids' character cookies

I have been such a terrible blogger lately!  There are so many cookies that I have to share with you from the past year.  I'm trying to get better though, I promise.

The benefit of neglecting my blog saving up pictures for a long time is that I have a lot of cookies to share for each post.  Yesterday's theme was football; today it's character cookies!

These cute little football-shaped Dora faces were thanks to Sweet Sugarbelle's awesome Dora tutorial.  Character cookies can be very daunting, so thank goodness for Callye.  She is the best!

dora the explorer cookies

I made these Thomas the Tank cookies last year for my son, Oliver's 2nd birthday:

Thomas the Tank cookies

I kept them simple by just doing the side view without any faces.  He loved them!

These adorable personalized Curious George cookies were for one of Oliver's bestest friend's birthday party :)

These might not technically be characters, but close enough ;)  I loved how graphic these Monster High party favors were!

Superheroes are definitely one of the most popular cookie requests that I get.  Hulk was a new one for me in this set:

And of course there's Olaf.

Because who doesn't love this happy little snowman?

Football Season!

Are you ready for some football?!

Football season is here, so it's about time I shared some of the football cookies that I made last year :)

Cookies are great for tailgates!  These were for a Penn State vs Maryland game:

And these were for an Army vs Navy game (obviously for Army fans!):

Cookies also make great gifts for football fans!  These are my personal faves (since I'm from Philly and all):

Go birds!

We're back!

Well, it was a busy summer at Jaclyn's Cookies this year, we just weren't baking any cookies!  My husband and I welcomed Genevieve Grace into our family on July 18, 2015.  Everyone is doing great, including her big brother who is completely infatuated with his baby sister.

We're going to start off slowly this fall with a couple of orders per week until we get into the swing of things.  My son Oliver just started preschool, so I'm hoping that gives me some time to work on orders!

We are currently accepting custom orders for October 5 and beyond.  You can request cookies using the custom request form on our website.

Pre-designed gift packages will be available in our Etsy shop beginning on October 5 as well.  We'll have a selection of new baby, birthday and thank you gifts, as well as some Halloween and Thanksgiving cookies.

Thank you all so much for your patience while we were on maternity leave and for your support over the years!  We're excited to be back in the kitchen!

Graduation Cookies

Graduation season is coming!

Here's a roundup of the graduation cookies that I did last year.  I'm looking forward to lots more grad cookies this year!

Of course, since we're located in Charlottesville, VA, there were lots of UVA cookies!  Here's a package for a PhD graduate:

And one for a law school grad:

 These were personalized Penn State favors:

This was a cookie platter for a La Salle College High School graduate who was starting at Clemson University:

 And the Clemson Tiger cookies:

This was a platter for twin (basketball playing) girls who graduated from Walt Whitman High School and were attending Lehigh University the following fall:

And finally, these were cookie favors for a Notre Dame Prep School graduation.  Their classic uniform with saddle shoes is a big part of the tradition of the school.   The graduate was entering the Naval Academy the following fall.

baby boy shower cookies

More baby cookies today!  Here's a couple of baby boy cookie platters that I've done recently.

This baby boy shower platter included lots of cookies with baby Rhys' name and monogram :)

baby boy nautical cookies

This nautical platter mixed things up by substituting yellow instead of the red that's commonly used.  I love how it looked with the teal color too!

baby girl shower cookies

I promised you more baby cookies and here they are!

bird cookies

These simple pink and turquoise bird cookies were created for a baby girl shower.  They were bagged and hung from a tree at the shower :).

girl pink and mint nautical cookies

I loved these pink and mint nautical cookies that I did for twin girls.  They were created to match the shower invitation.  And how cute is that SS Little Ladies cookie? ;)

Next up, boy cookies!
