40th birthday frogs!

Earlier this week, I got to make a totally new cookie design...40th birthday frogs. A fellow volunteer at the food pantry ordered these for her sister's 40th birthday party.

Her sister loves frogs and she wanted frogs (with eyelashes) in green and brown. Really I think anything with eyelashes is cute. Remember these cookies?

She told me her sister didn't want the number "40" anywhere at the party, so in true little sister fashion, she asked me to put a 40 on each of the cookies! ;) I loved that!

I tried to make the cookies as close to the color green on the ribbon she supplied as possible. I used a combination of Avocado Green and Lemon Yellow in my royal icing, both from AmeriColor.

Here's hoping the cookies hopped safely to Washington DC and that we are forgiven for the "40" on the frogs! :)

Looking for more birthday cookie ideas? How about these:

  21. I've been suspended from ebay numerous times. The first time, I sold an item and the buyer paid for it and I shipped it out. But after he received it he claimed that he had never received it, he did receive the package.

    However, no item inside. He sent me back the box, and I had to give him a full refund. What crap is that? I ended up not refunding him and my accounts got closed.

    Now everytime i create a new account I get banned again!! What can I do? I did find this ebook[url=http://winningvedo23.wikidot.com/suspended-ebay-account] ebay stealth[/url] and I really think its worth the 30 bucks they ask for it.. I'm about to buy it too! If any of you have any suggestions or tips feel free to let me know!


    Thanks again, ralph
