Heavenly Lovelies: Cake Fashion

Cake Dress

We found this little treat on Gather and Nest: “Wear your cake and eat it too.” Hmm, perhaps we should try making a dress of cookies! Any readers who did and sent in a picture (or better yet, a video!) of a beautiful dress made of Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies’ gourmet cookies would receive a serious prize! Now, don’t beat yourself up about it if you can’t muster up the audacity to find hours and hours of precious extra time and creativity to make a culinary masterpiece like this—its just some lovely eye candy.

Party Inspiration: Super Bowl Sunday

Super Bowl Sunday Party Ideas

Super Bowl Sunday Party Ideas

Since we, at Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies, love to entertain, we thought we could share helpful hints to help inspire you to transform something as casual and laid back as a Super Bowl Party into a fun and stylish affair. Let’s start with looks and move on from there…

  1. Decorate the TV room with your team colors, and if, heaven forbid, you’re having guests over that are rooting for the opposing team…keep your composure and simply decorate each side of the room with a different team color—perhaps even tape a line down the center of the room for some fun rivalry.

  2. Place a few mini foam fingers in a bowl for the kids to find and play with and you’re good to go (you may even want to set up a separate kids room so that they can watch what they want and play/talk freely).

  3. Arrange for pizza delivery or a giant sub sandwich, with healthy options like veggies and dip. Keep plenty of beverages out in a bucket of ice to whet everyone’s whistle. The next step should really help too (if could be so bold to say so ourselves)…

  4. Create an elegant dessert bar by presenting copious amounts of gourmet cookies on a table—to help with rising anger issues…okay, hopefully it doesn’t get too bad, but safety 1st! Add a touch of glamour to the room with vase of fresh flowers, and voila!

Heavenly Spotlight Series: Emilee

Emilee: Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie Personality

Emilee: Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie Personality

New Jersey native, Emilee, is another one of our 12 Cookie Personality Giveaway winners and was certainly a fun (or “tasty” as she refers to it) cookie personality to get to know! It seems like she’s got it made: an adorable son to tote around, a new home, and gourmet cookies to make life even more heavenly! Find out more about her below in the Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie Personality Profile and Heavenly Spotlight Questionnaire.

Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie Personality

Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie Personality

TOFFEE CHOCOLATE CHIP: You are passionate. You have a love for the rich, buttery, chocolaty, flavorful things in life. Simplicity is great, but high-quality is what you demand. You demand only the best quality in fabrics for your clothing, towels and sheets. You have a small group of close friends that share your same tastes and you love to gush about the latest in “important” news. You are fun-loving and passionate about the things you do. If you see a need in our community or otherwise, you become involved in helping to make a difference. You have high expectations for yourself and those around it and it shows.

Heavenly Spotlight Questionnaire:

1.     What makes you a toffee chocolate chip cookie and why?
I can’t remember what the description was, but when I took the survey it was the title I was given. After eating them, I was happy to say that my personality type was so tasty!

2.     What cookies did you order, regardless of your Cookie Personality Type?
I ordered an assortment [of our gourmet cookies].

3.     Who ate your winning box of Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies?
My sister was here visiting and helping us get moved in so we shared with her.

4.     How long did wait before you ate your Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies? (Pick one)

A.  Not long at all! You opened them as right as postman handed it to you at your doorstep!
B.  You were oh-so-patient and put them straight in the freezer to wait for your family to come home.
C.  You arranged your cookies’ unveiling at a party to share with friends.

5.     List a few of your favorite hobbies and things that make you happy?
I love spending time with my husband and toddler (and anticipating the arrival of another in 5 short weeks!), running, fashion and design, music.

6.     How do you spend your “me-time?”
Does that exist as a mama? :) When I have a bit of time I love to go for long runs, crochet, and soak in a bath.

7.     What excites and inspires you?
My family (especially my little boy), music, beautiful decorating/art/architecture.

8.     Describe a perfect day.
A warm, sunny day with all my family around and full of fun activities. And maybe a good nap.

9.     To whom and for what occasion would you deem perfect to send Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies?
Any and all occasions. We just sold our house and we relocated before it sold and our neighbor helped care for our yard so as a thank you we sent him a box. I intend to send them for holidays and fun surprises. They are to die for!

Thanks Emilee! It was super fun to have a peak into your world today! And yes, Emilee is completely right—”me-time” hardly exists for all of the hard-working, sleep-deprived mothers out there, but if it was ever to magically appear, it sounds like she has some wonderful ideas of things to do to relax in mind…in the off chance that it ever happened! We hope your sweet neighbor enjoyed our cookies as well.
