Custom Made Kiwiana Cookies

These wonderful cookies were made by Bex from "Consumed by Cake". They are so special that I wanted them to grace my blog for all of you to see.

Bex lives in the UK and runs her own cake business. I was fortunate to connect with her through a cake group.

Over time she has put together some wonderful cake and cupcake creations that you can't help but admire. However, for me, it has been her cookies that have proved to be one of those rare, irresistable art treasures that fascinate you with their detail.

My brother and his family live in the UK which is such a long, long way from NZ so I don't get to spoil them with personalised cakes and goodies on their special days. As a way to do something very special for them, I approached Bex to create some custom cookies based on a Kiwiana (things special to us New Zealanders) theme.

What she has put together is nothing short of incredulous!!! I'm thrilled with the cookies. I know my brother, sister-in-law and my gorgeous wee nephews will be blown away with this gift. My brother’s a chef so he'll definitely appreciate the workmanship and technical skill involved in making these gems.

Although my brother is not one to openly express emotions I expect his eyes to moisten a little as he stares at these cookies thinking about family and New Zealand.

Every New Zealander living overseas feels very special and hugely homesick when someone sends them a piece of New Zealand in the form of Kiwiana.

Thank you Bex for this wonderful way to tell my brother and his family that we love and miss them.

You can see more of her work and place orders through her website.
