Holiday Cookie Ideas!

Saturday, December 14, 2013

It's the time of year when parties are constant and gifts are flowing - What better way to add to both than with Sugar Cookies! 
 {Holly Leaves and Berries are great in small or large quantities}
{We love anything with a Snowflake theme}
{This month's Cookies in a Jar-Mini Snowflakes and Mittens in your color choice!}

Concert Cookies-The Sara and Gavin Edition

Wendy had a birthday recently and as a gift from her daughters, was given tickets to see Sara Bareilles, Gavin DeGraw, Matt Nathanson and The Plain White T's. The T's have already received a Concert Cookies from Snickety Snacks, Brittanie worked out a little gluten free treat pack for Matt, and the Snickety Snacks duo struck again with some knockout Concert Cookies for the headliners. Up first, Mr. Gavin DeGraw.
 We worked off a new image and love the sharp end results the black and white keys give.
 Sara was next. Her album art was full of beautiful photography, and Wendy's painting skills were definitely the best for the job!
 One of the best parts of the concert? Finding out that Ms. Grammy Nominated Sara herself Instagram'ed the Cookie! 

We see more concerts in the near future, which means more Cookies!!

Cut The Rope-Holiday Gift Edition

A few weeks back we put together a Cut The Rope themed order for a customer and it was pretty stinkin' adorable if we do say so ourselves.
Now, we have a little 6 year old in the family who is an incredible Cut The Rope player(he beats the adults' scores every time without blinking). We couldn't resist adding these characters to Sugar Cookies again, this time with a Holiday twist!
 {The Om Nom Reindeer is hands down our favorite!}
 {Edible glitter makes those red candies look amazing!}
 Such an adorable little side project, and we love the end results!

These incredible photos are from a new photographer friend that we're thrilled to have-
Alicia from Love Knot Photo

It's here!! Cut The Rope 2 is out-Click here to get hooked on it!
I think these guys are next on our to-do list, along with the super cute 
Pudding Monster characters!

Care For A Slice? Fall Edition!

Saturday, November 9, 2013

 With so many gorgeous colors outside, we couldn't resist bringing a small little Cake photo shoot outside! Here is the ever-popular Swirly Rose style Cake, along with the newer Horizontal Ruffle!
We're loving the grey ombre look to this sweet little Cake!
Our Specialty Cakes would be perfect for any Fall themed event-Contact us today to place your order!

Happy Fall Y'all!

Save Rock & Roll - Fall Out Boy

Sunday, September 15, 2013

A few months ago Fall Out Boy headed in to DC, and Concert Cookies by Snickety Snacks was born.
4 months later, we had to go for Round 2. We had already used the tour art on the first Cookie, so in an effort to one-up ourselves, we contact Shaun Logan. He made this incredible video about creating this Phoenix poster, and after watching it, I was hooked.
We contacted Shaun and he gave us the go ahead to go at it Cookie style. We had a blast.
 When you factor in the 13"x18" size, this baby is an impressive one for us. 
 Pete got a hold of it before the concert thanks to some amazing timing
Then this happened. Combine this with Panic's Instagram/Twitter posts and my phone was blowing up. It knocked me over how many new followers we got, not to mention all the sweet comments & Likes. All these guys have some die-hard fans, and we love it.

So who's next? We have an idea in mind, but we'd love to hear suggestions! Any favorite band art you think belongs on a gigantic Sugar Cookie? Just let us know!

Panic! at the Disco and Twenty One Pilots

The fact that these two sets of guys opened for Fall Out Boy last week just blew my mind. It was like 3 amazing concerts all smooshed into one, and I was in heaven. This is round 3 of the Concert Cookies, and it's confirmed how much I want to continue doing this is the future - It's Cookie Time!

Twenty One Pilots
This is the song that made me fall in love with these two. (It's actually listening to it right now!) Watching them perform was incredible. They bring a presence as if a dozen people are on stage. Best part though? We met them before the concert!
 They even signed the Cookie(edible ink makers baby!), which we love. 
Fingers crossed for a round two when they come back to the DC area in November-I can't wait to see their tour art!

Now for Panic! at the Disco. This one was a bit of a curveball for us. We actually had a completely different design idea in mind, something incorporating their last album's art/logo, but after getting in contact with their people, a request for current art was given and we ran with it. 
 If you've seen the Miss Jackson music video hopefully the background looks at least a smidge familiar. Wendy, with her incredible painting skills, made that happen with a mix of just 4 colors, and Brendon and Dallon were a bit blown away by it, wahoo!
 Two more Cookie Signers!
 As if they weren't rad enough, later that night they uploaded this to their Instagram, and then gave the Cookie to the barricade-which I absolutely loved! We heard so many sweet comments from other Panic! fans on our Instagram, it was wonderful.

Onto the next - Fall Out Boy!

Hello Beautiful!

Snickety Snacks has a new look! What do you think?
We've been working on this fun little re-branding project for the last few weeks and we're loving the end result. A few shout outs to some wonderfully creative people:

We love Mandy at Style Me Sweet Design for creating our sweet new logo options! Her fonts are so fun, her designs are adorable, and she's super speedy at getting the end results to you. (We also bought our logo in black and white options and she had them ready to go within minutes of getting our Etsy message, she's fantastic!) Looking for a logo? Don't waste your time, just go to Mandy!

Kathy at Nudge Media Design is the glue to this whole thing! She was the hidden talent between overhauling our other blog site, and we went running back to her again for this larger project. Her Online Branding Kit was a perfect match for what we needed, and she's been phenomenal about putting our crazy typed out needs into something real. New blog, FB Timeline, Business Cards and a perfect Sugar Cookie Pricing Sheet are all in our possession and we're excited to put them all to work. We're thrilled again with the results, and can't wait for you to see the whole package! Looking to take on a branding project yourself? Kathy is our favorite, hands down!

We love any excuse to have a large photo shoot with all of our treats, and this re-branding was the perfect opportunity. We met a local photographer a few weeks ago and didn't waste any time getting treats in front of her camera. We love you Joanna from Clover Creek Photography! If you think her food photography skills are awesome, you should see the results from her family photo sessions!

Speaking of treats, here's a bunch of our favorites from our new-look shoot with Joanna!
 {One of Wendy's Favorite Shots!}
 {A version of our new logo on a Sugar Cookie!}
 {Thanks to Michele on FB for this cute little cookie quote!}
 Once the 'official' shoot was over, Joanna took a few quick pictures of our 'staging' area. These ended up being some of my favorites!
 {12 different kinds of Sprinkles were used for this shoot!}

As if all of this wasn't enough to keep us happy for a really long time, we also have a new Website!
We've been fans of the Wix 'Create Your Own Website' way of thinking for a few years now. It's easy design tools let us constantly change out photos and information on a whim, and we love the simple and clean look we can achieve. We'd love it if you'd take a few minutes to check it out and tell us what you think! Is it easy to navigate? Enough pictures? Any additional info you'd like to see?

Another fun surprise coming soon will be the option to purchase some of our frequently requested Sugar Cookie sets through the Website! We'll be photographing the sets(Birthday, Bridal, etc.) soon and will let you know when they're available. Holiday/Seasonal sets will also be offered and will change as the months do!   

We hope you like the new look for Snickety Snacks! Thank you again to all the wonderful people who helped make it happen!

Have a Sweet Day!
Brittanie & Wendy

School Is Sweet!

Friday, August 30, 2013

I know most kids are already back in school, so these treats might seem a bit late, but my little Monkey starts kindergarten next week so we're considering these right on time!
We had a super cute order recently for a teacher looking to surprise her class with a little cookie happiness, and we decided to run with the chevron apple design she chose...
Those Cake Pops are super cute covered in glittery sanding sugar!
Who wouldn't love an outstanding edible grade?
Our Cakes make every day better!

Happy New School Year!

Concert Cookies, Oh Yeah!

Thursday, August 1, 2013

Do you remember that kind of amazing Fall Out Boy Sugar Cookie we made a little while back? Well Brittanie is hooked on making more...and more...and oh yes, even more. Our latest round?
 Say Hello to the Plain White T's and The Wind + The Wave!

Let's start with The Wind + The Wave. Never heard of them?  
Patty and Dwight are my new favorite people. Incredible musicians, fantastic songs, and two of the most down to earth people you will ever meet. 
After seeing the Cookie from us they totally knocked our socks off. Dwight came to talk to my husband and I before they performed, they both did a shoutout for Snickety Snacks during their stage time, and I can't count the hugs I got from Patty while they autographed their album for us.
One of the coolest things about these two? They signed the Cookie!
(With an edible ink marker of course.)
Fingers crossed for a 2014 Tour!

Now who hasn't had a Plain White T's song stuck in their head at one point? 'Hey There Delilah', '1,2,3,4', or my personal favorite 'Hate' are just a few of the favorites, but I've got to say, 
their Wonders of The Younger album is definitely my favorite. The circus-type vibe to some of the songs on there are right up my alley(Check our Cirque Dans La Rue), and the album art is gorgeous!
 Cliff Cramp is the creative genius behind the artwork, and we could resist getting the cover on a big ol' Sugar Cookie! Wendy's painting technique really brought this to life, no way we could have made it happen without her shading talents!
 We see this becoming a regular occurrence for us, creating these Concert Cookies, and we're excited to show you the tasty results! Follow us on Instagram @snicketysnacks and to see these babies specifically, be on the lookout for #concertcookie !

So what do you think? Who's album art should we take on next?

Sweet Circus

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

Before we even had our recent Wild Thing set completed we were searching through Nikki's illustrated sets on Etsy again for our next fun project. It didn't take long to find one we couldn't resist!
 {These are from Nikki's Circus bundle-fantastic colors and we love all the details!}
 {These were some of our favorites in the bunch!}
We're hoping to cookie-fy more of Nikki's illustrations in the future! Which ones are your favorites? We'd love suggestions!

You can find more amazing illustrations from Nikki on her blog Here.
