Cookie Decorating Classes with Melissa Joy Cookies!

Summertime for Melissa Joy brings the opportunity to not only take cookie orders, but offer cookie decorating classes as well! I’ve got two different options at this time. One is for those who just want to have a little creative fun with a group of friends and the other is for those who’d like an […]

Easter Egg Cookie & Jelly Bean Tic-Tac-Toe!

I have made many cookie tic-tac-toe sets. They consist of a giant cookie “board” and LOTS of cookie minis of various designs, but these guys…so much easier! Just one large egg cookie with a side of jelly beans, and you’ve got yourself a sweet treat of fun for the Easter baskets! A brief low-down on how I created them […]

Back To School Tic-Tac-Toe Cookies

I figured I would have to inquire once I unloaded the backpacks full of papers, art supplies, and stray locker items. […]

Root Beer Float Cookies
