Mermaid Tail Cookies

Mermaid Tail Cookies | Simply Sweets by Honeybee

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing the mermaid tail cookies I made for my neighbor's 2nd annual mermaid party. I don't own a mermaid tail cutter so I used a whale cutter and trimmed a little off the top. I believe I've mentioned this before but it's extremely frustrating when you own so many cookie cutters but you don't seem to ever have the one you need. It's my goal to not spend anymore money on cutters and find ways to use what I have in my collection. I just don't have the room in my house for more cutters. … [Continue reading...]

Tribal Baby Shower Cookies

Tribal Baby Shower Cookies | Simply Sweets by Honeybee

Hi guys! Today I've got a quick post for you. I wanted to share the cookies I made for a friend who requested baby shower cookies. The theme was a tribal shower for a little boy. She sent me a picture of the invitation and I used it as a guide for the set. I literally own over 1,000 cookie cutters and yet I still didn't have the cutters I needed for the set. For the dreamcatchers I used an upside down ring cutter. Thanks to my best friend Kim for giving me that idea. … [Continue reading...]

One Cool Pop Father’s Day Cookies

One Cool Pop Father's Day Cookies | Simply Sweets by Honeybee

Last year I made a card for my dad using a stencil I made that says "One Cool Pop". When I made the stencil my original intention was to make cookies to go along with it. For reasons that I can't remember now I didn't make the cookies and instead threw a quick card together. You can see the card here. This year I knew that I wanted to get the cookies made and I did. … [Continue reading...]

Slice of Life: 5-16-16


Hello there. It's been a long time since I've last posted so I wanted to pop in for an update. A lot has been happening in my life. I lost two of my dogs in less than a year's time. One to cancer and one to kidney disease. My dogs are children to me, as I don't have children, so you can imagine that I took these losses very hard. My parents had a rough patch with some medical issues but are doing much better now. It was a stressful time because I was unable to go and help them out but thankfully my sister was. I'm so grateful that she was able to be there for them when they needed help. … [Continue reading...]

Plan with Me: Fall Theme

plan with me fall theme 2

Hello there! My work life has been so stressful lately that I haven't been doing any baking. I just want to veg out and watch TV when I get home from work and on my off days. I've been watching a lot of YouTube videos as well which is how I discovered my newest obsession -- decorating my planner. I've watched so many videos over the last couple months that I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at decorating my planner. I've done a total of four decorated spreads. This week was my fourth and it's a fall theme to celebrate the first day of fall this Wednesday. I thought it would be a … [Continue reading...]

Simply Sweet Stencils: Halloween Stencils

Halloween Stencils | Simply Sweets by Honeybee

I'm back with another short and sweet post. As promised I told you that I was going to share more of the stencils that I've listed in my shop. This time it's Halloween stencils. Just like last time I made a short video showing all the stencils. They are stenciled on Notta Cookies which are 3 1/2" in size to give you an idea of scale. I plan on working on more stencils this weekend but I'm not sure that I'll do these types of posts will all my new additions. I just wanted to try something different. I have a lot of post ideas jotted down … [Continue reading...]

Simply Sweet Stencils: Under the Sea

Under the Sea Stencils | Simply Sweets by Honeybee

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend. I spent the weekend working on stencils for my shop. In the next couple of days I'll be sharing them with you. Here are the first ones that I've listed. I like to call them under the sea stencils for lack of better wording. You can see them in this video I've made. I design all stencils with a 3" cookie in mind. The Notta Cookies shown are 3 1/2" so this will give you perspective to the size of the stencils. Visit my shop here. Thanks for stopping by today! … [Continue reading...]

Stenciled Cupcakes

Stenciled Cupcakes | Simply Sweets by Honeybee

Do you know what the hardest part of a blog post is for me? The dang intro. I always struggle with how to begin the post. I'll sit and stare at my screen for a long time trying to figure out what to say. It's complete madness. So here we go. For quite some time I've been wanting to try my hand at stenciled cupcakes. Not fondant covered cupcakes but buttercream iced cupcakes. The buttercream I use is a crusting one so I knew that I could smooth it out to look like fondant and the stencils wouldn't stick to the icing. I'm quite pleased with how they turned out. They're not perfect but … [Continue reading...]

Royal Icing Recipe Video


It's been quite awhile since I last posted. I apologize for being MIA but I needed a little break. I'm ready to start posting again more regularly. I'm keeping it short and simple today. When brainstorming ideas I thought it would be a good idea to film the making of my royal icing recipe. I've shared the written recipe here with pictures but sometimes it's nice to see things in action. … [Continue reading...]

Slice of Life Sundays: 6-28-15


Good morning! I woke up late this morning. I usually set an alarm every day of the week or else I won't wake up but last night I forgot to set an alarm so I slept in until about 8:45. Now I feel like I'm going to be racing all day to get everything done but that's not too late so I don't know why I feel this way. We got some crazy storms last night. So much lightning and thunder. I'm able to sleep through storms so thankfully it didn't prevent me from getting to sleep. We've had a break from the last real big storms we had so the flooded areas have had time to go down. However, last night I … [Continue reading...]
