New designs today for this amazingly fun trend I’m just picking up on: Gender Reveal parties! 

For those of you who don’t know, for a gender reveal party, expecting parents will take their (generally sealed) ultrasound results to a bakery of their choosing. The bakers will then make a cake that will have either pink or blue frosting on the inside. On the day of the party, everyone gets to share together the experience of finding out what gender the baby will be! So much more fun then just having the ultrasound tech tell you, in my opinion. :) 

Being absolutely in love with this concept, I knew I wanted to try my hand at it, and see if I could translate it to cookies … and so I did! 

These cookies are for sale over on my Etsy shop: Tea & Curiosity

I love leaving butter and sugar in a mixer, walking away and coming back to find it practically whipped to fluffy cloud-like perfection. &lt;3

Sailor Moon Inspired Cookies

For sale at my shop on Etsy: Tea & Curiosity

My goodness, I almost forgot about these gems! For some reason, I didn’t have the photographs in my main collection, and actually had to pull them from my Etsy shop page. Inspired by one of my personal favorite shows, here we have the Soldier of Love and Justice herself, Sailor Moon (design was derived from her transformation scene); her love interest Tuxedo Mask; as well as her long time companions Luna and Artemis. Completely customizable as well, should you find yourself wanting just the senshi. :)

To Everyone Liking and Reblogging My Kingdom Hearts Photoset:

I love you.

When I originally decided to take on this project, it was just as a request from a friend who wanted to thank the stylist that did his Sora wig, and his friend’s Roxas wig. 

Together, we discussed what he was looking for, because I honestly wasn’t sure what I was doing, due to the fact that I’ve never had the chance to play the series. Knowing his love though, knowing how much the story touched his life, and just how much the game meant to him, I was on a mission to make these the best cookies that I possibly could. 

I spent an entire evening doing research. Finding out just what a paopu fruit was, what it meant, where it came from. What motifs were used throughout the designs of not only the games, but the websites and art as well to come up with background concepts that would fit perfectly. 

I knew I wouldn’t personally be satisfied with the outcome unless he was truly in love with them. I knew I had to do this series justice.

And now, to have it obtain over 300 notes in less than 5 hours, I’m just so honestly touched, and on the brink of tears. To have the approval of such a well established fan base, for this artist/baker/cosplayer/gamer girl, it’s just such an overwhelmingly wonderful sensation. My heart is overflowing with love for all of you. Thank you, so much, Tumblrs, for giving me such a fantastic feeling of accomplishment. Little as it is, it honestly means the world to me. <3

Edit: Needless to say, I’m now even more stoked about the 1.5 HD Remix release. Can’t wait to join all of your lovely faces in sharing your admiration for this series. 

I&#8217;m pretty sure this is my favorite response to the Kingdom Hearts cookies. Like. Ever. &lt;3 :D

disguise-decay asked: You make such beautiful and delicious looking cookies! I wish you could ship to Canada, I'd have you make me Pocahontas themed ones for my birthday in August. Please don't stop making pretty things to look at! :)

Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you! <3

I’ve been looking into shipping to Canada, the only problem is that it’s really expensive to ship from South Carolina across the border. A lot of people tend to scoff at my shipping prices as they are (I price for the zone 8 domestic prices, but refund overages when possible), and it’s nearly tripled when shipping to Canada - just over $28 for Priority Service. :(

I honestly though would love to have the chance to make you Pocahontas themed cookies. If we’re talking Disney here, then homg, all of the colors. All of the beautiful, glorious, colorful, sensational colors.

… I might design some just for the sake of designing them. :D 

I really hope you stay tuned though! I’ve got some adorable baby sea creatures (narwhals, octopi, pufferfish and crabs) coming as soon as I can make it back to my kitchen, as well as some fun old nautical/sailor themed cookies. 

Sending so much love. <3
