Gumball Machine Cookies

2.20.2011

My little girl turned 6 this past week.
The theme for her birthday was Gumballs!

First, because they took the looongest to make...
I'll start with the cookie party favors:



Isn't this old fashioned gumball machine shape adorable? I purchased the cutter from ecrandal - a fabulous family-run cookie cutter business based out of North Carolina. You can find this exact fancy-schmancy copper cookie cutter here!









The cake - two-layer 6" strawberry with buttercream icing and fondant "gumballs"



Confetti cupcakes with buttercream swirls, topped with rainbow non-pareils and a gumball



the treat table - so.much.sugar.

How cute! For a minute there, I was thinking the birthday girl was your oldest duaghter... then I realized she is much older than that! :) They look a lot alike! I've been meaning to ask you how you made the heart and button circles on your cute cupcake cookies... they were absolutley adorable! You always do such fabulous work! :)

What a wonderful idea! My son is going to geek out when he sees these custom cookies come out of the oven.

I found your blog while searching for a gumball machine cutter and OMG - I feel like you jumped into my head. My baby girl is turning 6 too and we are having a gumball party as well....actually it's a bubble-riffic theme (bubbles, bubble gum and other things that pop and blow!) I just got that #6 candle from Tarjay and I just decided to do a personal cake for her similar to yours with the gumball border...I initially wanted to do a gumball machine cake and realized my time is running short and that cannot happen, okay I'm rambling, but everything looks absolutely adorable!
