Eat More Desserts | Giveway!


If you don't know about Jenny Keller from Jenny Cookies, you REALLY should!! This sweet Seattle based mama turned baker to the stars, is known for her pretty tiny treats and stunning dessert tables.

Very similar to how Shop Sweet Lulu came to be, Jenny was a stay-at-home mama looking for a creative outlet to keep her sense of self while raising her small children. Little did she know that an obsession with making sugar cookies would evolve into a thriving business, that would eventually include star-studded clientele like Tori Spelling, Trista Sutter & Lisa Rhinna!

If creating stunning dessert tables for some of Hollywood's elite wasn't impressive enough, Jenny has just released her very first book, Eat More Dessert: More Then 100 Simple-To-Make & Fun-To-Eat Baked Goods From the Baker to the Stars.


Eat More Desserts | Giveway


This book is full of gorgeous photos, elegant dessert table inspiration & more then 100 simple recipes so you can recreate her genuineness at home!

Here is one of our favorite inspiration shoots from the book. I mean, who doesn't love a good ice cream themed party?!

With many of us mothering in the era of Pinterest, it can sometimes be overwhelming to see parties so lavish that you feel like you could never come close to replicating them at home. But, Jenny has made pulling off the perfect dessert spread totally attainable for even the most novice bakers (Seriously, no "pinterest fails" here people!)

Love what you see? We are giving away a copy of Jenny's book to one lucky reader. Simply leave us a comment telling us what your creative outlet is, and we will pick a winner at random!

Need the book NOW! You can pick up your copy at Barnes & Noble and Amazon.



Congratulations on your book, Jenny!!


Carrot Top Treat Cones (a super quick DIY project)


Carrot Top Treat Cones | Jessie Sense for Shop Sweet Lulu



For a fun little springtime goodie,  let's make treat cones that look like carrots, shall we?

First, let's gather our supplies:

double sided crepe paper (we used emerald & clover and juicy orange & persimmon)
cotton twine in pea pod green
scissors
double sided tape
treats (we used foil wrapped candies, but little snacks like goldfish and pretzels would be good too)

Directions:

1.  Print out the carrot template here .  Trace and cut the template out of the orange crepe paper.

2.  Cut a piece of green crepe paper that measures 9 inches square.

3.  Fold the green paper in half and cut strips of fringe approx. 1/2 wide - make sure to leave an inch uncut at the fold.  If you cut 'with the grain' of the crepe, you're fringe will be stiff, if you cut 'against the grain' it will be a little more squiggly.

4.  Using double sided tape, adhere the folded part of the green fringe to the outside lip of the paper cone.

5.  Using double sided tape, adhere the orange 'carrot' shape to the outside of the cone, overlapping the green fringe.

6.  Fill your cone with goodies

7. Gather up the green fringe and tie it with string.

8. Give to somebunny special.  Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

Easter Sundae Kits

We don't about you guys, but winter has felt EXTRA long this year. With the past few months being filled with nothing but snow, snow & more snow, we have been left to daydream about warm summer afternoons, running barefoot through the grass & eating ice cream cones. 

As an ode to the summer days we adore (and cannot get here soon enough) we decided to put a sunny twist on our egg cartons.....and turned them into Easter sundae kits!

To create these kits, we filled each cell of the carton with a various Easter treats. We chose to stock ours with jelly beans, a bunny peep, vanilla bunnies, rainbow jimmies, easter candy corn & crushed up malt balls

YUMMERS!

Of course, being the fans of pretty packaging that we are, we embellished our cartons with pretty pastel paint, a handmade pinwheel, a little twine & a spoon! Really simple touches, but oh-so pretty!
