Edible Clay Lace Valentine Heart Cookies (Tutorial)

Loving all things frilly and lacy,
I've been itchin' to make a cookie with authentic looking lace on it.
With edible clay and some very cool lace silicone molds, I believe I have finally achieved my goal.

Here's some of the lace molds I used on this post's heart cookies.
Outline and flood the base of the cookie.
(For these cookies, I added texture after they dried for 4 hours, but plain ones would work well too.)

Allow the flooded cookies to dry overnight.

Mold the edible clay in the lace mold and freeze for at least 1 hour.
Carefully peel the clay out of the mold.
Work quickly because as the clay warms up it will lose it's shape if handled too much.

Lay the lace clay across the cookie and trim the sides off.

A beautiful lacy cookie without too much fuss.....

CookieCrazie's Week in Review


Personal Side

It's been a very accomplished week......
Monday was taxes.
Ugh! I hate doing them.....but when they're done it is the BEST feeling. :)
Then I got to do some really cool cookies for my son this week.
He works at a TV I wanted to make them some unique cookies to his workplace. 
I can't wait for his coworkers to receive them next week!

I'm going to do a bunch of Valentines cookies next week to give to my former coworkers.
When I was working in the lab, I'd always bring in cookies for everyone I worked with. :)
I don't want them to forget me (haha), 
so I thought they might like to have a little "love" thrown their way.
It makes me happy to share cookies with everyone around me.
(I think it makes them happy too.....and that's the best part.)

I hope you are able to make some memories with your loved ones 
this next week in preparation for Valentines Day.
It is such a fun holiday to enjoy cookie decorating.

Two weeks until Valentines Day.....

We have a gorgeous sunshiny 65 degree Sunday here today in Missouri.
It hardly seems like January 31 and that Valentines Day is fast approaching.

Happy Tuesday!

Mason Jar Cookies Filled with Love (Tutorial)

As mason jars continue to be the craze in the rustic decorating world,
it's fun to try to create new ways to dress up their cookie counterparts.
For Valentines Day, it seems fitting to "fill them up with love". :)

To give the jars a more 3D look,
cut a duplicate jar cookie and use the second cookie's top portion to overlay the original cookie.
(see photo below)

Note: The top jelly jar cutter can be found here.

After the cookies are baked and cooled, outline and flood the jar and lid as desired.
Allow the glaze to dry for about 3 hours.

Using a mini heart cutter, press heart shapes into the "bottom" of the jar.
These impressions will give you a template to outline and flood multi-colored hearts in the jar.

Outline and flood individual hearts over the impressions with varying colors of glaze.
(see photo below)

Dry the cookies overnight.

Brush the sides and bottom of the jars with some blue dust to show dimension.

If desired, paint silver "lids" on the tops of the jars 
using Rolkem Silver Dust mixed with vodka or clear extract.

For an added embellishment, cut out mini shapes of edible clay 
and "hang them" on the jar with bakers twine or ribbon.
Add text to the clay using this alphabet stamper set.
