Personal Side

Do you ever get in a funk?
I'm sad to say I'm in one......trying hard to climb out of it.

Thankfully, cookie fun happened here earlier this week.
It went well.
Then my experiments for the week didn't go so well.
"If at first you don't succeed.....try try again."
I'm reminding myself.....

Next week I hope to start on Fathers Day cookies. haha
I know it seems early, but I've got a pretty tight schedule this spring, 
so I've got to work WAY ahead. 

I hope your spring is going well.
Easter is next week. Yikes! ;)

♥♥♥



Instagram photos for this week:

Happy day.....Happy week!


Happy Tuesday in SPRING!


Bunnies and Carrots in 2014..... :)

Spring Edible Clay Cookie Embellishments (Tutorial)






Just recently I found some amazing characteristics of edible clay that
work great for embellishing decorated cookies.

So I tried several techniques out on my Easter/Spring collection.


For the bunny's ribbon, I piped edible clay around it's neck with a basketweave tip 
and then topped it with a bow made from edible clay using this mold.


The lamb's ribbon and bow used the same scenario......with this bow mold.



And this large Easter egg was the same.....only using this bow mold.


Just adding a cute little button and piping a  thread stitch on it really adds to an egg cookie too.

These buttons were made with this mold and this mold.


Use edible clay to add a swirly rose for the bunny tails.


Or mold the clay onto a texture mat and freeze it......
then cut out a shape from the cold clay and add it to your design.
(see photo below)



So many possibilities from edible clay!

Knitted/Crocheted Spring Animal Cookies (Tutorial)






Now that I've found these awesome texture mats that resemble knit and crochet work,
it seemed like that texture would be a perfect for all-things-spring and Easter.


Basically, you just need to outline and flood 10-second glaze onto your favorite spring shapes,
let them partially dry for about 4 hours, and then press the mats into the glaze.



Once they've been textured, add the details as desired.


For the lambs, I omitted the face, hooves, tail, and ears when flooding
so that I could go back and add a flat surface for contrast.


Let them partially dry for about 4 hours, and then press the mats into the glaze.


After you've textured the lambs, go back and fill in the face, hooves, tail, and/or ears.
(Oops.....I forgot to fill in the ears on the left lamb!)


Allow the lamb to dry overnight and then add some pinkish cheeks with luster dust,
pink eyes, nose, hooves with a pink Foodoodler marker,
and black eye pupil and eyebrows with a black Rainbow Dust marker.


For the bunny faces, flood everything but the eye and mouth area (shown below).


Let them partially dry for about 4 hours, and then press the mats into the glaze.


Once the texturizing is complete, flood the rest of the cookie with white glaze.
Wait about 15 min and then add eyes and a tiny nose. (see right bunny on photo below)


Dry overnight.

Use a black Americolor gourmet writer to color the eyes completely black.
Add some pinkish cheeks with luster dust,
pink nose and mouth with a pink Foodoodler marker,
and black lashes, eyebrows, and whiskers with a black Rainbow Dust marker.
