'tis the ice cookies!

As of last week, it officially feels like the holidays are upon us here at Polkadots. Leading up to Thanksgiving, we made what were likely our last autumn-themed orders for the year. They included hand-iced cookies..
 Squirrel, pumpkin, turkey, fall leaves, and cute scarecrow!

  and cupcakes decorated in traditional fall motifs...

 and even a silly demented turkey cake! This cake was a 6" round consists of 4 layers chocolate cake, marinated rum cherries, and fresh whipped chantilly cream - serves 12 adults.

After those were complete, we moved on to creating what were the first of our many winter-themed treats. Holiday goodies are always lots of fun to make in our kitchen - we like to turn on Christmas music while we work, Country Christmas, R and B, pop, oldies etc...,which never fails to get everyone in the spirit. We tend to make more cookies around this time of the year, and each one calls for a lot of time and attention to detail. The varieties we made included snowflakes, mittens, Christmas trees, sleighs, wreaths, snowmen, ornaments, stockings, candy canes, Santas, reindeer, and gingerbread men. They look so cute together on a nice platter when they are all finished!

We'll have limited varieties available to pick up at the store starting this weekend, or you can place your custom cookies order with a 72 hrs notification.
