I Want, I Want, I Want... Beetle Car Cookies and Cookie Cutter

You know how when you really, really want something, you start to see it EVERYWHERE? Well I've wanted a pink VW Beetle car for about 7 years now. Yes, 7 years. But I KNOW that someday I WILL own a pink VW Beetle car. I will. It will be my next car. My current car is 9 years old, but it's holding in pretty well. And well, we have a kid in college. So that is the priority on the money, that and grandbabies. And so I wait. Patiently. Until I see a VW Beetle drive by and then I whine just a little bit. Would you believe there are TWO PINK VW Beetles in the city about 15 miles away from me?! It is such a rare thing to see a PINK VW Beetle and yet there are 2 of them close by. When I get one, mine will be different because it will be a convertible. And the girl driving it will have pink hair. Someday. So in the meantime, I made some pink Beetle cookies.

I made this really fun beetle car cookie cutter with a tree on top for Christmas because it's easy to cut off the tree for other times too. Cookie cutter available HERE 

Aren't these fun!

 and then I made some beetle cars without the tree by easily cutting the tree off the cookie before baking. See below.
With tree and without 
 I know I won't be getting my dream car for Christmas until after we're done paying for college, but it is fun to dream about it anyway.
 and since I'm a really nice grandma, I bought Abigail a pink car even though I couldn't have one. 
 but then I went all out and bought Abigail & Aidan the super super cool VW Beetle car. Isn't this just the cutest thing EVER?! It is a Barbie car, but I left off the Barbie stickers and added a bicycle decal to the back.
 and I pimped it out by making it powered by cookies
 and I bought this really cute decal Cookies it's how I roll car cling from Shannon of Artfully Designed Etsy Shop
 I think the grandbabies like their new pink car!
and then because I couldn't help myself, I bought them a THIRD pink car. This one I get to push and I'm excited to take them to the park.
Someday I'll have a really cool pink car too.
So tell me, do you like the little bit darker pink
 or do you like the lighter pink better?

Beetle Car blog background for today:


  1. I see you in the darker pink... it's bolder, brighter, and more fun- like you!!!

    1. Thanks Jen! That is two votes for the darker pink and one for the lighter pink so far. I still can't decide. I love them both. My bike is the lighter pink, but it would look cute on either car for sure. The two Beetles in my area are the lighter pink.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! I love hearing from you! Cristin
