Whole Lotta Bakin' Goin' On!

My son, Jesse, and my daughter-in-law,Lois, asked if I would make some SpongeBob cookies for their friend's(Hannah) birthday. She happens to really like my cookies(and SpongeBob, of course!) and any friend of my children is a friend of mine:) I was thankful that not one of them broke even though they had to fly over the Pacific! And Hannah was thankful for the cookies(along with Jesse and Lois)!
It has become a tradition in my Sunday school class, that when one of the children has a birthday(they all turn 8 this year), I bake them up eight number 8's decorated in their favorite color, package them up, attach a tag that says "It's GREAT to be 8!" and the recipient is as happy as can be! Marissa was the happy girl yesterday! (BTW...my cookie cutters are 4" so these are nice, big cookies!)
These cookies were made especially for my grandson(Munchkin #3), Zeke, for his 2nd birthday! He's a special birthday boy and we love him very much!!! He is a little cookie monster:)
Zeke LOVES Elmo, so I made this simple(a design I can handle) birthday cake for him:) I got the idea from leighuf on flickr.com. It's a 10" cake with cupcakes for the eyes(m&m's for the pupils) and a small 4" round cake for the nose. The birthday boy seemed to like it(him)! HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY, ZEKE!!!

  5. Glory, I just noticed your question today and can't find a link to your blog, but anyway, for the "whites" of his eyes I used white candy melts(from Wilton)which I purchased at a local Michael's craft store. I shaved down(just a bit) the "pointy" side and then adhered that side face down(with some icing). Hope this helps, and sorry this reply is so late! Good luck!
