Congrats UCLA Grads! I Special Nod to the Women’s Water Polo Team Captain

In honor of a special graduate from UCLA ( we made this gift – Message Cookies, Confetti and Streamers and Water Polo Balls – funny enough, just last year we made a similar gift for a high school student who was headed to join the UCLA Men’s Water Polo Team (see them here)!

As excited as we were to make this gift, we were even more excited about our UCLA Bruins Bear replicas! For this fluffy version of the mascot, we used a large teddy bear cookie cutter and trimmed his body away, then, after matching the school’s colors, Elaine carefully added all of the fun details … and for now, he’s at the top of our list of our current favorite cookie!




Congratulations Graduates | Graduation Cookies

The school bell will be ringing for the last time this year and many kids will be promoting to the next grade level whether it be Elementary, Middle, or High School. We made these fun cookies because everyone still enjoys the signature symbols of graduation. We took a stab at a fun stick figure graduate. The other confetti and scroll design tutorials can be seen on  Sweet Sugar Belle’s blog.  MAZEL TOV to all friends and their children!

College Bound…

It’s high school graduation time and you know your getting older when your friends have kids graduating from high school! We wanted to celebrate high school graduation with cookies that recognized their accomplishments and most importantly…getting into a good college.  We made message cookies, graduation caps, confetti, stars, and even some logos paying tribute to their future alma maters.  Here’s a peak at the fun!

First, for a Carlsbad High grad going to UCLA to play water polo! We love the UCLA colors. First time we made water polo balls.

Next up….the Wildcats.  This message was “Now You’re A Wildcat.” Wishing Carly good luck at the University of Arizona.

Of course, we had to make some cookies for her mom too!

Another grad on the east coast is headed to Endicott College in MA.  These were some fun logo cookies. I thought this was a pretty awesome looking platter! The sea gull mascot was fun to do. The message for these cookies was “Watch Out Endicott”.

Wishing all the high school graduates the best of luck in college! Congrats on getting into some great schools.
