Top 10 Posts for 2015

Truth be told, this was not my year for blogging. 
I counted, and only ended up publishing 25 posts this entire year! Sheesh! I promise that 2016 will be much more prosperous, post-wise! I already have lots of ideas up my sleeve. :)
Though I shared my treats on my google+ account and also facebook, I based this Top 10 countdown on how many times each post was viewed on this blog, the "home" of Munchkin Munchies. :)

Let's begin...
I made this cookie cake in celebration of my blog's 6th birthday! 
It was a lot of fun to make, and eat!
Love the sprinkles!
I have a soft spot for cookies that look like other food items, and especially if they have sweet faces, so I'm kind of smitten over these pumpkin pie cookies!
Though I had seen (and even made) "one smart cookie" cookies, I had never seen a cake version.  I thought it would be the perfect treat to celebrate the end of the school year. 
I ended up loving it, and the fact that it was so easy to decorate made me love it even more!
Love these cookies...so easy and so festive!  I think they really do look like ice cream scoops. :)
You will see another variation in 2016!
The monkeys turned out pretty adorable, but I was tickled with how realistic the bananas looked (simple thrills of cookie decorating:))! It's amazing what a little "painting" with food coloring will do for details. 
My very talented friend, Haniela, invited me to do a bunny collaboration with her in the spring. We each happened to choose a cake, though mine (as you can see) also involved cookies. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to use the new cookie cutters (ears-Bobbi's Cookies & Cutters, and bunny muzzle-Whisked Away Cutters) created from my own designs. Exciting! 
A few years back I made a candy corn cheesecake. When the cheesecake was served, each slice looked like a candy corn. :)
I knew it would easily translate into a pizza-size cookie, and be a lot easier. 
I couldn't resist adding the cute faces. ;)
These cookie baskets were a bit of a labor of love, 
but the gingham stencil and color sprays really helped speed up the process!
I was very satisfied when they were all done.
For Valentine's Day, 
I thought it would be fun to make strawberries instead of the obvious double hearts with this cutter.
They were simple to do, and turned out cute.
Simple and cute is my mantra, in case you didn't know. :)
And finally, Ta da! My #1 post for 2015 is...
Speaking of "simple and cute", mini melting snowmen cookies definitely fit the bill!

Thank you so much for your support with Munchkin Munchies!!! 
Happy 2016!
