Pear Cookie (Tutorial)






Here's another new cutter from CookieCrazie Custom Cutters........a pear.


For a classic pear look, the 10-second glaze needs to be a nice apple-y green.
 Outline and flood the pear cookie.


If a more 3D pear is desired,
outline and flood the base of the pair a second time after it has dried 30 min.
You can also add a leaf in a darker green color. 
(see photos below)


And if you're extreme like me, you might try to add a third base layer......
but it is not recommended. ;)


Because of my mistake,
I waited a couple of hours before adding a FOURTH layer to cover the ugly third layer. haha

Once the leaf has dried about 2 hours,
use a cake tester and/or scribe to add some veins.


Also, add a brown stem.


After the pear has dried overnight,
use a mixture of electric green, chocolate brown, and bright white color gels to paint on 
some shadow lines and random splotches.

Personal Side

The first signs of Christmas are evident here at my house.
I started making Christmas cookies this week!
It's been fun to break out the red and green and try all my latest techniques
on the best holiday of the year. :)

Lots happening on my end in the next three months.
Some days I get overwhelmed.
And watching the news can be overwhelming.
So I've got to guard where my focus is, do you know what I mean?!

Just a couple more weeks of October left.....
I'm relishing the beauty outside and the cooler weather.
I'm so thankful for life and health right now.

♥♥♥

Autumn Produce Crate Cookie (Tutorial)






This happy little crate cookie is pretty versatile.
It can hold whatever your heart desires.
 It fits right into a rustic autumn theme.....


The first time I decorated it, I put apples in the crate.
But for this tutorial, I plopped some pumpkins in it.
It seemed fitting for the month of October. :)



The CookieCrazie Custom Cutter set includes three parts.
By having a background cookie, the crate becomes more 3D-ish.

Cut out both the back and front parts of the crate.
And then use the tiny little oval cutter to cute out a handle in the front cookie.

Once baked, glue the two cookies together with some icing piped on the back of the front cutter.


Outline and flood the front of the crate as shown below with brown 10-second glaze.



Be sure to add some brown glaze to the parts of the background cookie that peek out the sides.


Allow the glaze to dry for about 1 hour.
Outline and flood the wood panels of the crate as shown below.





With orange glaze, add some pumpkins onto the background cookie......
peeking out of the top of the crate.
Be sure to add corresponding pumpkin bottoms inside the handle.


Once the glaze has dried for about 3 hours, use a bark texture mat to
give the wood panels some texture.
Also use a cake tester to add some lines to the pumpkins and stems.


Dry overnight
Mixing some brown, white, and gold food color gel, paint some "character" onto the wood panels.



Here's the apple crate cookie.....
