cute as a button!

Ever since I was 11 or 12, I've loved baking. I think the first thing I ever baked was a batch of snickerdoodles with my cousins. From then on, I was in charge of baking the pumpkin pie and custard pies for Thanksgiving dinner every year. I even used to make sweet little leaf and turkey toppers out of leftover crust to jazz up the pies (example from this year below, done by my sis and I).

So when I came across Bake it Pretty and saw their adorable vintage button candy molds - it made me want to bake again. So cute and fun. Can you imagine a baby shower with the theme "Cute as a Button" and these candy buttons (I think I saw one with this theme in MSL)? Also, the toppers and muffin cups in their Etsy shop are great for a party. Love 'em!
