Have you noticed that April showers of snow are not stopping May flowers intent on popping through our half-frozen earth? That means Spring is in the air!

And Spring cookies…

Soon the world will be budding with abundance and here at Mama’s Custom Cookies that means my mind is bursting with cookie possibilities just in time for your springtime gatherings. It’s been so cold for too long — I want to taste fresh air and warm breezes wrapped up in my cookies and send them out to be loved.

Looking for some ideas this Spring? Mama’s Custom Cookies has some inspiration for you.

Mother’s Day is often forefront in people’s minds this season. With it we have some recommendations, depending on your unique mom. Some mothers are gardeners who appreciate bouquets of cookie tulips, daisies, or zinnias sprouting out of watering cans, flower pots, or in classic floral — and delicious — arrangements.

Perhaps Mom prefers a gathering of butterfly butter cookies or is more of a tea party person. Just imagine a sweet frosting teapot to delight her taste buds and chocolate edged Earl Grey tea bag shaped cookies baked to melt in her mouth or dip in hot tea, English-style. Have a creative Mom? Bundles of confectionary paint brushes or one cookie camera coming right up!

Spring sees a number of births and my mind is already churning with thoughts of gender reveal parties and baby shower favors! Some of my favorites are cookie rattles, bibs, and onesies — Check out these cuties [LINK] that Mama’s has created. Is your spring baby turning into a toddler? Baby farm, sea, or zoo animals are adorable for a little one’s once-in-a-lifetime first birthday. We also know the perfect cookie for your biggest Disney fan [LINK TO MICKEY EAR COOKIE].

Those babies soon grow up and this time of year becomes the season of baseball, gymnastics, and First Communions. How about a team of cookies, each bearing the likeness of a particular little league player for that end of the season party? A series of figures doing flips for an after-competition treat? Mama’s Custom Cookies has also worked with customers to design religious themed cookies for First Communion celebrations [LINK].

Have a teenager starring in the spring school musical or behind the scenes running the show on stage crew? After party cookies are just the thing for teens who like to grab and go. And don’t forget the Class of 2018 graduates soon — caps, gowns, and diploma scrolls are the perfect cookie touches to a graduation gift or celebration.

The scent of warm sugar is in the air of the shop, scrumptious buttery flavors baked into a light crunch of goodness are melting on our tongues, all wrapped in Spring designs — Yum! Can you picture them? I’m going to get started right away…come find out how they turn out.
