Birthday Cookies and a "Decorating Cookies Party" {by Bridget Edwards} Book Giveaway!

{My Birthday Party Cookies}

GIVEAWAY ENDED!

If you enjoy decorating cookies, or just looking at decorated cookies, then I am sure you must be familiar with Bridget of Bake at 350!  I was fortunate enough to land on her site years ago when I first started my blog and was surfing the web (does anyone still say that?!?) looking for some cute cookies! With Bake at 350, I hit a cookie gold mine!  
To make things even sweeter, Bridget is like a cookie lovin', next door neighbor, the genuine article.  Though we have never met, her authenticity jumps off the pages of her blog. 
When Bridget announced her new (second) book, Decorating Cookies Party, I was instantly smitten with the cookies on the cover, particularly the cake/cake stand cookies!  I couldn't wait to get my hands on the book and make those cookies! 
I had so much fun making them!  Bridget's step-by-step photos, coupled with written instructions, made her beautiful cookie designs easy to duplicate.  I almost felt like she really was my cookie lovin', next door neighbor, guiding me along in my kitchen. :) 
I purchased this  cute, cake slice cutter from Cristin's Cookie Cutters quite awhile ago, and was so happy to finally use it. They worked out perfectly for this Birthday Party set!
For the four different (domed) cake stand cookies, I finally christened this beautiful set from Janet of From Captain's Daughter to Army Mom. Thank you so much, Janet! 
Instructions for candles and presents are also included in the book for this birthday set.
Decorating Cookies Party has cookies for 10 themes and includes 50 cookie designs! 
Here's another one of my favorite cookie designs included in the book! Just look at these double-decker beauties;  I'm giddy over them!  I have referred to Bridget as the "Double-decker Queen" in the past, and now you can see why. :) 

If you'd like a chance to win a copy of this wonderfully fun, easy-to-follow cookie decorating book, just leave a comment on this post by answering the question:
