Vintage Truck Cookie (Tutorial)






This truck cookie cutter is one of my favorite custom cutter designs.

I love the way that this shape can be decorated for the season and/or personalized.

This particular tutorial shows pumpkins in the back of the truck.
But the skies the limit on how to decorate it.


As you can see......I've also  decorated it with an empty bed or with a pile of apples.


And just recently I added lots of LOVE to the truck for my daughter's wedding. :)



In this tutorial......I'll let the photos do the talking, unless details needs to mentioned.



To give the pumpkins a 3D look, I allowed the base flood to drive for about 1 hour,
and then added an additional outline and flood of each pumpkin.



This photo shows multiple steps.
Outline the wheel chassis, door, etc.
Secondly, after the base flood has dried for about 2 hours,
you can press a small round cutter into the wheels to distinguish the tire from the hubcap.



Flood the chassis and door outlines.
Add an additional circle layer to the hub cap.



Allow at least 30 min of dry time before adding the little details to the truck.
(i.e. lights, handle, mirror, bumpers)

Once the pumpkins have dried for at least 1 hour,
press a cake tester in them to make the pumpkin segments.
Add brown stems to the pumpkins.


Dry cookie overnight.
Paint black on the tires with food paint  or  luster dust (mixed with vodka) or 


Use silver food paint or silver luster dust (mixed with vodka) for the hub caps.


Paint the rear lights with red food paint or Americolor Super Red gel.



Add a name plate to the side door with a food color marker.
 "Age" the truck by brushing on some dry bronze luster dust.

Personal Side

Awww.....back to the normal routine.
It has been a nice quiet week. :)
I can't say that I've had one like it for more than month now. ;)

I'm decorating cookies using a lot of my custom cutters featured on www.creativecookier.com.
I am having a BLAST! 
It is so fun to carry out what has been formulating in my head.

This week I did lots of pumpkin cookies.
Next week......I'll continue into another fall theme.
That will probably be the last of the autumn cookies for this year.

I've got Thanksgiving cookies to whip up.....and then Christmas!
It's the most wonderful time of the year.....especially for cookies. :)

Acorn Cookies from last fall....


Plain 'ole Pumpkin Cookies made with new CookieCrazie Custom Cutters here and here.


With this color palette, how can I not have an awesome week!
Tomorrow is the first day of…. FALL! 


Pumpkin mania is coming along..... 


I'm CRAZIE about how this cookie turned out!
(Please excuse the poor quality of lighting).
At first I thought the cookie would be a castaway, because airbrushing did not go well.
But once I got the edible clay pine cones and acorns on it, I decided I liked the look.

Autumn Gourd and Squash Cookies (Tutorial)





It's been my desire to have some custom autumn gourd and squash cookie cutters.
My dream has come true. :)

Ginny of CreativeCookier is making a whole set of CookieCrazie Custom Cutters.
And it includes a gooseneck gourd and a crookneck squash!


Outline and flood the cookies in their appropriate colors of 10-second glaze.


To the squash add uneven sized dots and lumps with same color glaze
after the base has dried about 30 minutes.


 Allow the glaze to crust for about 2 hours.
Randomly push into the glaze to give it an uneven, more realistic look.
(see photo below)


Once all the cookies have dried overnight, paint the goose neck gourd with 
a mix of Americolor leaf green, electric green, and bright white color gels.



After the "paint" has dried for an hour or so, dust the cookies with bronze pearl dust.
