Those Little Halloween Monsters

I have a big ride coming up on Saturday. It's funny because 100-mile bike ride didn't used to be a "big" ride when I was stronger, but now it's such a big ride that I'm scared. So what am I doing? I'm praying for rain ;-) I could say that is because, here in California, we are in such a drought that we need rain. Yep, lets go with that. But really, I haven't ridden enough in the last 2 years and made enough healthy time for me. Not to mention I was really sick for about 11 days and I'm still in the coughing stage of that bug. But you know, the drought thing, we'll just blame it on that. So if you want to do a little rain dance for California so that the ride gets canceled, that would be okay with me!

I made some more monster cookies for Halloween that I sent to the Go Bo Foundation in the fight against Cancer.

Creepy Crawlers for Halloween - Spiders Cookies and Bats & Cats Too

I've had a cold for the last 5 days, so I've been stuck at home. No cookies. No bike rides. I finally went out for a walk yesterday to work the kinks out from being so sedentary. The good thing about being home and not baking is it's been a really good opportunity to get caught up on watermarking cookie photos and organizing pictures. My desktop had so many things covering it, that it was hard to work around. My office is now cleaned up and my computer is more organized. I'm coughing less and feeling more human again. Glad to be getting over this bug. However, I did make bug cookies a couple weeks ago, spiders to be specific and bats and black cats. I sent these off to the Go Bo Foundation in the fight against Cancer.

This is Squiggley the Spider. She is my very favorite cookie of all my Halloween cookies this year. A fun spider with a big girly bow. Cookie cutter available HERE 


 This is Wiggles the Spider. I had my daughter name him for me. Cookie cutter available HERE


 and a spooky spider web with a spider made from buttercream icing. Cookie cutter available HERE


This is Baxter the Bat, cookie cutter available HERE 


 This is Carla the Cat. I loved her for a black cat for Halloween, but I'm also excited to make her a "regular" cat too. Cookie cutter available HERE


I didn't have a photo of Abigail or Aidan with spiders or black cats, but I decided Aidan in his Batman outfit would work ;-)

Do The Monster Mash

A bunch of cookie decorators (over 400) made cookies in support of the Go Bo Foundation in the fight against Cancer. In addition to the witch cookies I shared last week, I also made some monster cookies. I really had fun with these and then fun making the monster blog background too. My son is on break from college this week and I'm so excited that he is coming home tonight. I have some really fun ideas of activities and baking and of course, video games. I can't wait to see him tonight! Time to go get ready...
