Yankee Girl Yummies

I love cupcakes and I think they are wonderful to have at parties. Individual cakes mean less mess and usually less work! When I decided to host a special baby shower, I searched for the perfect cupcake topper. I have never used cupcake toppers before, so I really had no idea what I wanted. When I found Yankee Girl Yummies on Etsy, I knew I found exactly what I was looking for!
 I intended to use these cute little duck cookies as cupcake toppers. I really did! After receiving them, I was afraid they would not get the attention they deserved if I used them on my cupcakes. The plan for my cupcakes was to put them in clear favor cups for guests to take home, but I thought these ducks were too cute to cover! They found a home on my table in their own special serving platter!
 The cookie toppers are baked on a stick and each cookie is a decent size bite of the most delicious buttery, vanilla cookie. The icing isn't overly sweet, and it goes perfectly with the cookie! Each cookie arrived in perfect condition and the details made them even more special. These would be great for a shower or a birthday, or to celebrate Spring or Easter!
I found so many original cookies at Yankee Girl Yummies! A lot of sites have different variations of the same cookie. Not here! I took one look at the cookies above and added them to my wish list. I don't let my children trick or treat. We have a small party at home and I make treat bags for them and we watch movies all night. These Halloween cookies would be perfect for their bags! I LOVE the spiders on each "cupcake!" They are so playful and the color combinations are bright and cheery!!
Yankee Girl Yummies has talent and creativity that extends well beyond the kitchen! Our guest of  honor also received a special gift for her new baby, a pretty bakery gift box containing cupcakes for baby! It was so sweet! It's a great shower gift and it will certainly be remembered. There was nothing plain or ordinary about it! Check out Yankee Girl Yummies on Etsy and you'll see why I love this store!
Disclosure: I was sent cookie cupcake toppers and cupcakes (for a baby) for a very special event. No monetary compensation received and honest opinions given.
