Perfect for a young child's birthday, this Winnie the Pooh cookie is absolutely adorable.

Alisha offers cookie painting classes and demos at her store in Melbourne. I would kill to be in one of her classes! These cookies are made with a gorgeous mix of gold and pink paint. And the heart-shaped cookies are perfect for Valentine's Day or a date night.
15 Peter Rabbit Birthday Cake
This Peter Rabbit cake is stunning. Delicate, hand-painted, and perfect for a birthday party or Easter event!

Simple as anything, and yet, these sugar cookies with white frosting are brought to a whole other level with the addition of a rough brush stroke of green watercolour.

These animals are true works of art!

I don't care that I'm a full blown adult, I want this to be my next birthday cake.

Because there's no better combination than bacon and eggs. These cookies are romantic without being over the top.
10 Woodland Creature Cookies
Quite possibly the cutest cookies in history. These cookies feature woodland creatures like adorable foxes and tiny bunnies.
9 Woodland Creature Cake
What's better than woodland creature cookies? A giant woodland creature-themed cake! This looks delicious, but I almost wouldn't want to cut into it.
8 Vibrant Two-Tiered Cake
This bright and summery one-of-a-kind pattern looks absolutely stunning on this two-tiered floral cake.
7 Millennial Cake
Full of emojis, ombre, and text slang, this cake is perfect for all of the millennials out there. Seriously, how do I hire you for my next birthday?
6 Beard-tastic Cake
This beard is literally three tiers long...and I love every bit of it (including the blue and white flowers).
5 Palm Tree Cookies
These gold-flecked palm tree cookies are perfect for a summer party. They would also do nicely for a winter party as these cookies can remind you that the warmth will come eventually!
4 Kate Spade Cookies
These floral spade-shaped cookies are the epitome of Kate Spade.
3 Cacti Cookies
These would make gorgeous house plants but I wouldn't be able to resist eating them.
2 Sleepy Cloud Cookies
These cloud-shaped cookies are as sweet as can be. With their little rosy cheeks, tiny mouths, pink bows, and generally pillow-like exterior, I would devour these (after taking a picture obviously).
1 Milk + Cookies = Love
Milk and cookies in cookie form may be Alisha Henderson's finest creations. These are too cute.
