Birthday with Lots of Cookie Cutters

My son celebrated his 19th birthday last week. The problem was that he was about 700 miles away! This was the first time that he wasn't home for me to throw him a big birthday celebration. It was harder than I expected and I missed him terribly. I decided to make him a whole bunch of cookies to give out to his friends in college. And since I generally go pretty overboard with things, I made a bunch of new cookie cutters too. Thankfully my kids appreciate my craziness and they like cookies ;-)

Somehow I forgot to get a platter picture of the cookies. All that work and no platter picture. This will have to do. Get ready for lots and lots of cookies...
This one was my favorite. Birthday boy with cupcake. The cookie cutter is available at my Etsy shop: 

Birthday Boy with Party Hat

Birthday Boy with Balloons

Cake Slice

Party Hat

Balloon Bouquet

Cake Tier - I changed this one after I made these cookies. I didn't like the bow.


Noise Maker

Confetti 1

 Confetti 2 - I changed this one after so that it's not as thin

and then some more cookies with cutters I already had

 This pinwheel is an eCrandal cookie cutter

As you can see, I had lots of fun making so many new designs of cookie cutters. They can be found at my Etsy shop:

In all, I shipped 41 cookies to Nick. He said that he gave them out to friends and they were gone in a day. I'm glad they enjoyed them. He will be home for Spring Break in a few weeks. I'm so excited to see him. I wonder what I'll make for his return... 

Birthday blog background for today:


  1. Hi Cristin, These are the cutest birthday cookies I have ever seen! Thanks for showing us how you outlined them. I will be placing another order :) Kathy

  2. I know you miss your son like crazy but I'm betting that all his college friends are delighted that he was at college for his BDay. Look at the cookie haul ;) I love the cookie with the kid, balloons and cupcake! Hope Nick had a great birthday celebration.

  3. What a lucky boy!!! Happy birthday, Nick!!!

  4. I loved the post...
    The effort that you have put in...
    And o yes! The love for your son that can be felt in each inch of this post...
    Nice one!

  5. For all parents the day of birthday of their children is very important. They want to celebrate it in a best way they can. It is a great idea which you applied for wishing your son his birthday and to show that how much you miss him. It is very loving and wonderful. Your son must be very happy. It was my daughter's birthday last month, i was also confused that what to do something very special for her. So i send some flowers as a surprise to her. They were very beautiful and my daughter was very happy by this surprise. I ordered it from postal flowers. You can read this for further information
