Message in a Cookie


My friend, Sarah, is a Williams-Sonoma expert (mention before here). While skimming through the store catalogue, we came across the “Message in a Cookie” cookie cutters and I had to have them. They’ve been out-of-stock for awhile, but luckily Williams-Sonoma brought them back! Yay! I received mine from Sarah yesterday and gave them a try this afternoon.


Cutting out the cookies.

The “Message in a Cookie” cookie cutters come with three cookie shapes (star, heart, scalloped rectangle), a small mesh bag of letters, and a sugar cookie recipe. To create the cookie messages, all you do is slide the small white letters into the cookie cutters.


I made plain, pink, and purple sugar cookies using gel food coloring.

I am a big fan of typography posters, cards, pillows, etc…and am happy to now have typography cookies! The possibilities are endless. There are so many options that I had a hard time thinking of messages to stamp into the dough, which hopefully explains the corny, corny, “Have a Happy Day.” Haha.

hello & good afternoon

Welcome to The Late Afternoon, a tiny project meant for discovering, designing, and creating. As far back as I can remember, I have had this obsession with pretty patterned papers, fonts, colors, home design, crafts, and all things inspiring. I like things a little bit skewed from perfect –  slouchy, warm, and comfy. I am super excited to start collecting and posting my finds for you! Thanks for joining the adventure…the good stuff is right around the corner.
