STENCIL HEART COOKIES/ For the Guys



It’s getting to be that time of year again when everyone’s thoughts turn to romance. Ahhhh! The season is filled with heart shapes in red, pink and other girly colors. Well, romance involves men too, right?

As everyone knows, Valentine’s Day is a yearly tradition when expressions of love are transmitted in sweet, darling ways in chocolates, fancy dinners, flowers, etc. This year I’m looking at it from the male perspective. I assume that as much as the men enjoy indulging their sweeties with nice things and an evening out, they enjoy being on the receiving end of those sweet expressions too. One thing I’ve discovered since starting this blog is that men love cookies. Did you hear me? ... Men Love Cookies! So why don’t you make this the year you treat him with your own homemade decorated cookies? Your guy will love your thoughtful, creative and sweet expression of affection.


These cookies were decorated with stencils and color mist to create a masculine, classy effect.
