So here's the story of my July 4th desserts. I've been seeing a lot of creative cookie cutter uses on Pinterest lately. I knew that I wanted to make a pound cake strawberry shortcake for my family picnic but it sounded kinda boring, ya know? Well all I did was just cut a couple of slices of pound cake into stars and displayed them with the regular slices of cake. My family pretty much thought I was a genius....either that or they overly compliment me because they think I'm insane and need the kindness. Again, whatevs.

So I'm like....ok I'll just make some really basic cookies....but I ask Mia and Rob for some design ideas just to get some input. I don't like to repeat holiday designs year to year so I wanted to do something a little bit fun. So Rob says the word "Paisley" and I kind of shrug it off...but on the inside I just loved the idea. Sometimes I like to act like I don't hear some of the ideas that he has and then hours later I'll act like I came up with the best idea ever and it makes him so mad. That's marriage for ya. So back to the point....Paisley was my idea.
I had no plan going into designing these....literally we're talking 15 minutes of decorating time. But like I always say....sometimes quick thinking and limited time to work create the best results.
Hope everyone had a fantastic July 4th! I guess I'll try to plan ahead for Labor Day designs....any ideas from you? Leave me a comment!
