Dragons, Dragons and MORE Dragons!

Purple Soapy Dragons to be exact!

Lotsa of soapy purple dragons :)

Purple Dragon Soaps

These cute little fellas are a recent commission of purple dragon soaps for a bridal shower.  They’re individually handmade in goat’s milk soap.

The ‘Cute Dragon’  design is also available as a handmade stoneware cookie mold in the ZANDA PANDA Etsy Shop.

Check back soon for a post on “Heather’s Game of Thrones Season Finale Party“.  Learn  how she used her ZANDA PANDA Dragon Shield Cookie Mold and modified the Creamsicle Cookie recipe to create some fantastic party treats!

Valentine Video hits 10,000 views! Help me Celebrate!


For my Valentine’s Chocolate Cake-Topper Video!

Scroll down for a COUPON, so you can celebrate, too!

I was hoping my Valentine’s Heart Cake Topper video would hit 10,000 views by Valentine’s Day… It was at exactly 9,999 views at midnight on Valentine’s Day.  The stats were mocking me. 

But at some time in the wee hours of February 15th, it popped up to 10,000.  Still worth celebrating, I think.

So.  I thought.  How to celebrate this?  And in a way that you’d like, too?

OK, It’s the fifteenth.  How about 15% off of anything in my Etsy shop?

New Stuff! Silly & Scary Soaps: Itty Bitty Kitties and Cthulhu at ZANDA PANDA’s Etsy shop


I have some new designs in my Etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ZandaPanda

First, five silly kitty designs:

Five Itty Bitty Kitty Soaps

From my Etsy page: 

“A Quintet of Kitties!

Each cat has its own personality or captures a universal kitty expression. Perfect gift for cat lovers! These are my original designs and can only be found here (or on my website).

One purple kitty has the silly look cats have when they stop savaging their toy and catch you watching them. The other purple one just heard you rattle the box of kitty treats – or maybe he’s just had too much catnip. The others are being adorable taking a catnap, being a kitten and trying to appear dignified.”

Next, something scary:

You can find this handsome fellow in my Etsy shop at: http://www.etsy.com/listing/88197291/cthulhu-soap

I’m thinking that they’ll make lovely cookie molds as well…


Spooky Summer- Halloween in July!

Halloween in July?

Halloween Cookies made with ZANDA PANDA's Handmade Stoneware Cookie Molds.  Halloween Cat, Bat and Witch designs.

Halloween Cookies made with ZANDA PANDA Stoneware Molds

Here’s to Spooky Summer Nights!  Even though I’m enjoying the heat wave and am in no rush for cool weather, I’ve been working on stoneware Halloween cookie molds.  They’re coming out very nicely from the prototype molds.

These will be handmade, so the supply will be limited.  If you’d like to reserve a set, please e-mail me at: Lira@zandapanda.com to let me know.  There’s no obligation to purchase and we’ll hold a set for one week after we notify you that they’re ready to ship.  Or join our mailing list to receive updates.

I think they’d look great with a yellow cookie dough for the background (like a full moon), with chocolate cookie dough for the witch, cat and bat.  I’ll definitely post a pic when I make them.

I also  think that I may not be able to resist making ceramic boxes with Halloween lids 🙂
