{Sugar Bee} Minecraft Sugar Cookies

A sweet little boy is turning 8 years old and to help him celebrate his big day, his mom asked me to create Minecraft themed sugar cookies. Apparently Minecraft is all the rage these days, especially with little boys....my son is totally obsessed with the mini-figures! There are so many characters in the Minecraft game, so it was difficult to choose which ones to create, but ultimately I see the most popular ones to be Steve and the Creeper, thus it seemed obvious that I needed to make those ones. But I also wanted to incorporate the birthday boy's age and a little something extra to add to the cookies and include a little extra color, so I created the TNT box and the number eight, made out of the gray bricks, similar to what you see in the game. I was happy with the way they turned out...my kids absolutely loved them, especially the Creeper! Now to figure out how the game actually works....

{Sugar Bee} 4th of July Chocolate Covered Oreos

Fourth of July festivities wouldn't be the same without chocolate covered Oreos! Thus I created a set that screamed Independence Day, all decked out with a patriotic color palette and big letters that read "USA"! Stars are always indicative of this day and I wanted to coordinate the decor with the cupcakes. But I also wanted to add a small pretty touch to the set so I made lovely little flowers. I love how they turned out. Now it is time to sit back, relax, and enjoy a delicious beverage and some fireworks!

{Sugar Bee} Festive Sugar Cookies for the Fourth!

In addition to the cupcakes I made the other day, I wanted to make festive sugar cookies to celebrate the 4th of July as well. I have been dying to use my newest Sugarbelle cookie cutters so deciding on designs wasn't so difficult this time around. The cookie designs are all very indicative of the Fourth of July. The plaque cookies were fun because I was able to use text on a cookie....something I don't do very often.Then I used my favorite star cookie cutter and added the "4th" to half of them....at times I just like the simplicity of cookies with just sprinkles on the outer edge. Lastly, I created firework cookies....these I thought rounded out the set by adding a little more pattern to the mix. This set was definitely liked by many....especially my kids! Now on to watching the real fireworks!

{Sugar Bee} All American 4th of July Cupcakes

Are you prepping for the 4th?! I definitely am! To get started I wanted to create a cupcake that screamed All-American and 4th of July. I thought to myself what is an all-American dessert....apple pie of course! So my apple cupcake with cinnamon buttercream frosting was born! To give it an added patriotic touch, I added some sprinkles and adorned the top with red and blue chocolate stars. These give another meaning to Sweet Land of Liberty!

{Sugar Bee} Boho Chic Cupcakes

 
Last but not least for the Boho Chic Baby Shower treats are boho cupcakes! I made two different flavors and to differentiate the two flavors, I used slightly different colors within the color palette of the party and maintained the same decor. The almond cupcakes with cherry almond frosting I made a pretty peach and topped it with white feathers that I subtly brushed with a pearl dust and added pink flowers. The margarita cupcakes I kept white and added gold sparkly feathers with the same pink flowers. I hope the mama-to-be and baby enjoy their sweet treats and their special day!

{Sugar Bee} Boho Chic Chocolate Covered Oreos

This weekend I am working on some goodies for a boho chic baby shower. First up on the list, chocolate covered Oreos! Using the color palette of the party, I created mini rose chocolate covered Oreos and then added a little sparkle and shine with standard round chocolate covered Oreos topped with a gold feather. I just love how it turned out!

{Sugar Bee} Father's Day Hole in One Treats!

This Father's Day I wanted to honor the two amazing fathers (my husband and my dad) in my life with making special treats that revolve around their favorite pastime....Golf! So let's just say I had a ball and went a little crazy creating goodies to let them know they are the "best dads by PAR"...in fact, they are a "HOLE in ONE"!
I always have to make chocolate covered Oreos....these have golf balls decorating the top that can hold a mini Oreo or just straight up white chocolate (just depends on how much you love white chocolate)!
 
I have been dying to make these sugar cookies inspired by Sweet Sugarbelle and when my husband sent me a photo of golf cookies out of the blue a couple weeks ago, I knew this would be the time to do it!
My husband LOVES cake pops, so I knew I had to incorporate this into my treat bucket....golf ball cake pops inspired by My Cupcake Addiction!
A while back I made these cupcakes to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday. I loved them so much and thought they needed to be part of my sweet treats, but instead the flag would focus on Father's Day. So one side the flag has a number ONE and on the other it says "Dad, you are a hole in one!"
It was a sweet way to wish my husband and dad a Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all you amazing dads, grandpas, godfathers, and father figures!
