Allison & Jake's Wedding Cookie Collection

My youngest daughter, Allison, got married in May.
I had the privilege of making cookies for the event. :)
(I wouldn't have missed the opportunity!)

I made three basic cookies that were given as favors at each place setting.

First, a carved tree trunk cookie with Allison and Jake's initials. (tutorial)

Next, some mason jar cookies to fit their folksy woodland-like theme. (tutorial)

And finally, lace airbrushed heart cookies in colors to match the wedding colors. (tutorial)

Here's my attempt at making cookies similar to the wedding cake design.
(Boy, was that harder than I thought it would be!)

And finally, a whole set of cookies just for Allison and Jake.
I've been wanting to decorate that wedding car for a LONG time. :)

It was a treat to wrap up these special cookies up in a beautiful BRP Box. :)
Allison and Jake loved them. ♥

Wedding Mason Jar Cookies (Tutorial)

The second wedding favor cookie made for my daughter's May wedding was a mason jar.
I've done several mason jar cookies......but this one needed to be as simple as possible.
With the volume being done, simplicity was a big part of the criteria. :)

 Mason Jar Cutter (used on this project)

Outline and flood the entire jar and lid with white 10-second glaze.
After about 30 minutes, outline and flood the lid with an additional layer of white glaze.

Using a 1.5 PME tip, add jar details as shown below.

Once the lid has dried for approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours, 
use a cake tester to make horizontal and vertical indentations across the lid as shown below.

Dry over night.

Using sky blue airbrush color, lightly airbrush a slanted shadow across the top and bottom of the jars.

Paint the jar lid with silver coloring.
An alternative is to mix vodka (or almond extract) with silver luster dust.

Nice and simple. :)

CookieCrazie's Week in Review


Personal Side

With prepping for the Ukraine trip & a September wedding.....
I have the privilege of working on cookies for Back-to-School and autumn ahead of the game.
It's always fun to move on to the next season/holiday.
Each year......there's the chance to implement all the new things you've learned in the last year.

I can't begin to tell you how much fun I'm having decorating cookies these last few weeks.
Perhaps its because I took a week off and regrouped.
I'm learning how to create a reasonable number of cookies......
and enjoy lots of new shapes, techniques, color, and designs.
It doesn't feel like work when doing it this way. :)

I only have a month until I go to Ukraine.....
And yes, we have our the trip is on, for now.
People ask me if it's safe.
We are told by our very good friends that the area we are going to is safe.
We trust that they would tell us if it was not.
And if things change, we won't go.

But my excitement is building as I anticipate being with all the people
and celebrating one more year together.
I'm certain we will not even begin to take that for granted ever again......
and our goodbyes will be a bit different as the possibilities of another year could change things.

This next week I'm working on autumn cookies.
I'm using new custom cutters from Creative Cookier.
Can't wait!!!
