With no doubt this scene of the Nutcracker is maybe the second favorite of everyone. Maybe it is it's catchy song, the big costume, the adorable ginger cookies dancing or that is the first time your little kid is performing in the Nutcracker, or all of them together!

When I got this cookie cutter, I was so excited but didn't knew where to start, first is hard to bake big cookies, because they can break easily and second, I wanted to put so many things in one cookie.  My design has been changing over this 10 years, but I love the fist one as much as I love the brand new.

Baby Jesus Cookie Tutorial

Baby Jesus Cookie Tutorialpost signature

Growing up in Mexico at Christmas time the most special house decoration is the  "Nacimiento" ( Nativity scene) It was a whole ritual, unpacking very carefully all the pieces that has been for many generations in my family, fixing the broken pieces, ( there is always a Wisemen without a hand or a lamb with 3 legs ; ) plan a trip to the market to buy fresh moss, hay, some pine branches and very important the paper posters of the sky, desert, rocks, etc. 

I have so many good memories around the Nativity scene, actually I inherit my grandmother's Holy family, it is made out of wood, it is really pretty!

So for me making Nativity scene cookies is a most!

This cookie is one of my favorites, looks really elegant and very special, very appropriate for a Baby Jesus  in a manger cookie.




Please watch the video to learn how I did this cookie!

Life experiences as a cookie decorator









Few years ago I met Bridget Edwards from Bake at 350 blog, I have been blessed to meet wonderful persons in my life, I have learned so much about my friends, and not having my family close, they have been a great support in my family life as well in my cookie decorating life. 


Many, many years ago, when I started with my Etsy shop, I start using more the internet and started looking for cookie decorating tips, and I found the Cookie decorating University Website, and learned a lot from their tutorials, but I never imagine that I will met one of the cookie decorators from that website, or that I will be living very close to one, or that my daughter will be friend of one of her sons, or that besides our love for cookie decorating or baking, will be using the same shoes on the same day or have the same earrings, the same year calendar, like the same schools for our kids and the same Universities, like the same clothes and the same designers, make the same cookie in the same day....this is really once in a life time GIFT, I thank God everyday for this and for all the LOVE HE give me through the persons I have met in my life!!


Thank you Bridget for all that I have learned from you, you will always have a special place in my cookie heart!

Ideas to decorate my bakery shop Spanish







Ideas para decorar mi tienda de galletas


Hola, me da mucho gusto compartir con ustedes esta idea!  Esta idea la puedes utilizar ya sea para decorar tu pastelería o para decorar tu cocina. 


Como en mi caso, mi cocina es mi pasteleria también, la tengo que tener muy presentable para mis videos, aunque cuando estoy haciendo galletas estas por todos lados, con azúcar, icing y gel de colores por todos lados. 


Me ha pasado muchas veces, que cuando agito el gel de colores, no esta bien cerrado y sale el gel por todos lado, y pues mi cocina se ve como un estudio de pintura, jajaja, lo bueno es que es blanca y puede ver muy, pero MUY bien, donde esta manchado. 


Les comparto otras ideas de como he decorado poco a poco mi cocina con el teme de repostería y mas bien con el tema de galletas decoradas. 



 


Unos de mis primeros cortadores fueron los de cobre de Martha Stewart, me gustan muchísimo y se me ocurrió ponerlos en una pared, tengo mas pero mi cocina no tiene muchas paredes desocupadas y solo los puse en este rinconcito, tu puedes hacer lo mismo con los cortadores de cualquier tipo!



Puse los cortadores que mas me gustan! 


Este pizarrín lo compre en una tienda de Hallmark Crown, me encanto y siempre hacia tenido ganas de usar mis galletas para hacer imanes y pues este pizarrón con esa barra magnético es perfecto!!




Esta muñequita de gengibre me encanto, la compre en hobby lobby y se ve super bien con el tema con es del color que tengo varios de mis electrodomésticos y pues se ve muy bonita, lo único que me falta es mi kitchen aid roja...algun dia, no he perdido las esperanzas! 


Espero te gusten estas ideas!!

How to decorate a ballet party with pointe shoes




My daughter graduated from High School and for graduation party, I decided to decorate her party in everything ballet, because she danced ballet for many years, and in High School she was in a pre-professional program, so she spent a lot of her time in her ballet studio.





















We kept most of her pointe shoes, and I was wondering how can I use them to decorate the party, so I came up with some creative ideas on how to incorporate the "Ballet theme" with her academic accomplishments in a cute but not so childish way. 

We decorate the house with a lot of her ballet pictures, some tutus and a lot of pointe shoes. 





I used the pointe shoes as balloon weights and also hanged some banners with the pointe shoe ribbons.







For the cookies, I did not make any ballet cookies, I focus more on the University she was going to attend and make a cute Rice University Cookies set.  Obviously I made Sammy, the Owl mascot, the letter "R", the unconventional wisdom slogan, the name if the University and some graduate girl cookies. 








I hope these ideas will inspire you on how you can incorporate an extracurricular activity like ballet to a High School Graduation party. 


I think it is a good way on how you can display some things that you have kept and use them as ballet party decor.
