Heritage Bee & Hive Copper Cookie Cutters

I’m pleased to introduce this special edition set of heritage copper cookie cutters designed by me for Good Things by David.  Having worked closely with American coppersmith, Michael Bonne, to create these wonderful iconic images, nothing gives me greater pleasure than making them available to you for your very own home.  Everyone here knows how much I cherish my collectible copper cookie cutters which have been featured  extensively over the years, and it is because of this passion for them that a brilliant collaboration was formed to create a limited-edition set.  Soon to be available exclusively through a store I’m creating, the charming Bee & Hive duo will allow you to bake & decorate unique cookies which are bound to become family favorites.

Who doesn’t love baking delicious cookies in adorable shapes for family and friends?  It’s a time-honored tradition in my house that I have enjoyed doing every single year for various special occasions & celebrations.  This type of gift giving is one of my favorite things to do.  A number of you have shown me your creative talents and artistry with cookie design, and I applaud every single one of your exceptional cookies.  Now it’s time to create more cookies!

What started as a conversation with my friend, Janet, has turned into a new venture.  The collaboration for my set of cutters, along with her very own set of cutters, has sparked an interest with some of you who have known about this special project for some time now.  For those of you who are new to this, now is your chance to own a set of tailor-made copper cookie cutters.

Heritage Bee & Hive Cookie Cutters 

 Coming Soon!

The closed-back copper cookie cutters have clean edges which make cutting out cookie dough a breeze.  Made in the tradition of some of my collectible cookie cutters, the Bee & Hive are large enough to give ample room for creativity.

The hand-stamped Good Things by David handles are comfortable to hold, so using them to make whimsical cookies will be a joy.  I'm beyond thrilled with the quality of my cookie cutters and I know you will be too.

One of my original sketches for the Bee created at home.  This was a prototype drawing that I was mulling over during the process of designing the Bee.  There were many other sketches, but I settled for the one above.

I wanted to keep the Beehive as simple as possible with soft edges and rounded curves.  One problem that I did encounter midway was the opening of the hive.  It was much too wide, so it got downsized.

This is but one design.  I love the color combination and the sparkly effect that sanding sugar gives this cookie.

I don't know of any Bee in nature that is this color.  Pure whimsy!  That's one of the joys of decorating cookies.  One's imagination can create just about anything when icing cookies.

These tasty and colorful cookies were made using my very own Heirloom Sugar Cookie Recipe.  The icing is none other than the Perfect Royal Icing, tinted in various shades of pinks, oranges and yellows.

In a very short time you will have the opportunity to shop for this unique set of cookie cutters presented to you.  With the purchase of a Bee & Hive cutter set I will include a decorating guide showing you how to create the cookies you see here.  Keep in mind, however, that several other decorations will be included in that recipe & decorating card (for customers only).  This set of contemporary Americana will become an instant heirloom meant to be passed down through the generations.  

I hope that you become a part of this experience and create cookies with me!

Antique Salt Cellars

There was a time when salt cellars played an important role on the dining table for the host or hostess.  As a result of it being such an expensive commodity several hundred years ago, salt was seen as a luxury and it was the well to do that made salt cellars quite fashionable & a status symbol for the home.  A single salt cellar usually sat at the head of the table and was passed around throughout the meal.  The closer one sat to the salt cellar, the more important one was deemed by the head of the household.  Smaller cellars that were more accessible and with an open top became a part of Victorian table settings.  Fast forward to the 20th century when salt was no longer a luxury and when anti caking agents were added to make salt free-flowing, and one begins to see salt cellars fall out of fashion.  Luckily for the collector and for those of us who like to set a table with Good Things , this can prove to be a boon. Salt cellars for the table come in silver, porcelain, cut glass

How to Paint a Chair

If you have ever felt the need to spruce up a set of chairs or give them a new look, why not try a little bit of paint?  Our tastes in decor and color will probably alter throughout our lives, and at some point, we may find ourselves wanting to change the look of our furniture without having to spend a lot of money.  That's where a few handy tips, some tools from the hardware store, and good-quality paint come in handy.   I know I'm not alone in paying visits to local antique shops, antique fairs and flea markets, and falling in love with pieces of furniture that would be perfect if they were just a different color.  You don't have to walk away from a good purchase simply because it's the wrong color.   My dear friend, Jeffrey, is forever enhancing his home with collectibles from flea markets and tag sales.  However, certain items aren't always up to Jeffrey's tastes when he brings them home.  He is the type of person who won't hesitate to chang

Vintage Wilton Wedding Cakes

Wedding cakes have certainly evolved over the decades just as tastes and styles have in our American way of life.  There was a time when elaborate & very formal towering feats of sweetness were the standard for every bride & groom.  Growing up in a household where I witnessed several wedding cakes take shape from start to finish, I can tell you  that every single one of these was a true labor of love.  For mom, Wilton was the go-to supplier in every aspect of cake baking, including the wedding cakes which flew out of our house every single year for friends & family.   Vintage Wedding Cake Toppers It’s fun going back and looking at Wilton’s methods and styles for wedding cakes during the 1960s and 1970s.  Back then, the shapely cakes were not simply stacked and covered in perfect fondant the way they are these days, but were iced and decorated with real buttercream, along with a multitude of accessories.  There was even a working fountain available that could b
