Blogiversary Giveaway (Closed)

It's my first Blogiversary!  And to celebrate the completion of my first year as an official Blogger (can I add that to my resume now?), I am having a little giveaway.  Nothing much, just some fun cookie stuff I got at the local cake decorating store.  They have everything and I love them.  And they've been around for decades.  So they really know their stuff.

I picked up some cookie cutters.  America, a hummingbird, a frog and a butterfly.  It has been really hard to let the last three go (if you read this blog with any regularity, you know I already have the America cutter), and I may have to go back for more cutters soon.


Disco Dust!  Peacock, Raspberry and Rainbow.  A second peacock may have fallen into my shopping basket by mistake.



CK Meringue Powder.  I've never tried it, but I've heard great things.  I used a different brand for Christmas cookies (Lorann) and it was pretty great.  It didn't have the weird smell that the Wilton meringue powder has.


Cookie sticks and rainbow metallic dragees.  Just because.  The cake shop has dragees in all colors and sizes.  And I love them for it.

And last but not least, Americolor Airbrush Sheen in Bronze and Pearl.  I was looking for Silver and Gold, but they were out.  So you get Pearl and Bronze instead.  I don't have an airbrush, I use it in place of luster dust to paint onto the cookies.  Very pretty.


And there you have it.  A small pile of loot.

  10. Love all your goodies especially the raspberry! And the CK powder, I switched to it last year and LOVE it! I really like that you have more than cookies on your blog--the only suggestion, maybe put a list of categories on the sidebar.

    Thanks-
