Teddy Bear's Picnic

Don't hate me, but I've never been a huge fan of the teddy bear. I know, I know...I feel bad about it! I loved my Rhett Beartler and Scarlett O'Beara bears that I had in high school, though. Did anyone else have those? I wonder where mine are....

These bears, I like. I modeled the bears' faces from the Build-a-Bear mascot. I just drew them on using an AmeriColor Gourmet Writer in black.

The sprinkles are my favorite part of the cupcakes! They are great for a class party...a lot less messy than real cupcakes! :) The candle doesn't ship all that well, though, so they are not the best for mailing.

I'll leave you with a link to my favorite teddy bear...for the life of me, I can't remember his name, but he "sings" Teddy Bear's Picnic with Trout Fishing in America (my favorite!). If you've seen them in concert, you know what I'm talking about. :) If you haven't...check out their calendar and GO...they are so great! {update: I think it hit me...RoBear! Am I right? Anyone? Anyone?}

  12. What cute cookies. I enjoy your site even though I don't decorate cookies. I have made two versions of the cake truffles... well, one of them has only made it the cake balls stage (no time for dipping as yet), but they are A-MA-A-Zing (putter pecan cake mix).

    Because your blog is among my tops, I wanted to pass along the award I received. You can find it at my blog http://gollihughfamily.blogspot.com/

  15. I have been reading your blog for awhile and admiring all the cookies. I think the time has finally come to try some of the more interesting decorating you do. My cookies have only been sprinkled or decorated with one basic color. Wish me luck.
