White Basket of Flowers Cookie (Tutorial)

Flowers in a Basket appropriate for spring and Mothers Day celebrations.

This is the second of three tutorials for spring using the CookieCrazie custom cupcake cutter.
The first was the  Woodland Moss Pot Cookie.

When cutting the cookie, cut the top off the cupcake as seen in the photo below.

Once it is baked, outline and flood the bottom portion of the cookie with white 10-second glaze.
(see photo below)

Allow the glaze to dry for 2-3 hours.
Using a cake tester, make vertical basket lines in the partially dried glaze.

Outline and flood horizontal bands with white glaze at the top and middle of the white basket.
(see photo below)

Outline and flood the top portion of the cookie with green glaze.
( photo specifically of this)

Once it has dried for at least an hour,
pipe green edible clay through the grass/hair tip on to green glaze.

Let your creativity take it from there.
Add leaves and flowers in the mix.
The cookie in the photo has a mini cookie flower plus molded edible clay.

Once the cookie has dried overnight,
brush the white basket with some black petal dust to bring out the texture.

CookieCrazie Chatter...... Friday, April 24, 2015

CookieCrazie's Week in Review


Personal Side

So my first "solo" cookie decorating class is tomorrow!
Preparing for a class is pretty overwhelming.
There are so many things to keep in mind....beyond all the baking, icing prep, etc.
But this is good practice for when I have to travel to Salt Lake City 
with everything in my suitcase for pre-CookieCon classes. haha

It should also be really fun to spend time with my good friend, Jayne
and finally do some decorating together.
It is always wonderful to spend time with cookie friends. :)
We live fairly close to each other....and yet, we haven't done that yet.
She's at the super-busy-mom-stage-of-life, so I can totally relate to how it is hard to meet.

Our family gathering last weekend was pure bliss.
I enjoy my adult children so much.
We really did have wonderful time and memories together.

I leave for Ukraine in less than 3 weeks!
Once this class is over and cleaned up.....that's my next focus.
We just hop from one event to another in life, don't we?
Hopefully we can stop and smell the roses.....often! :)


Instagram photos for this week:

Happy Friday!

It's a frog world.....

Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself,
    where she may have her young—a place near your altar, Lord Almighty, my King and my God.
Psalm 84:3

May your Tuesday be filled with lots of things that make you smile. #ribbit

Preparing for my local cookie decorating class happening this weekend.
I'm super excited!!!

 This mixed media style is a blast, Sugar Pearls Cakes & Bakes!
Thanks for the inspiration.... :)

Allison's Wedding Shower cookies last year.....
Little did we know that we would be "Wedding Central" for several more months.

Crocheted Baby Cookies (Tutorial)

When thinking about what textures to do for baby cookies......
it seemed natural to lean toward a crocheted and/or knitted look.

SillisShop in Etsy has some perfect molds to accomplish crocheted/knitted texture.

Outline and flood any shape you'd like in the colors of choice.

Allow the glaze to dry for about 4 hours.

Press the texture mats into the partially dried glaze.

Quick, easy......and so pretty!
