Blueberry Muffin Cookies (Tutorial)





Of all the cookies made for the Serving Mom Breakfast in Bed collection,
these blueberry muffin cookies are my absolute favorite.
They turned out just the way I envisioned them.


Start with a muffin-shaped cookie.
(Any cupcake cutter will work just fine.)

Using a medium brown 10-second glaze, outline and flood the top of the muffin.
Allow it to dry for at 30 minutes.
Add random swirls and blobs of the medium brown glaze all over the muffin top.



Please forgive me for forgetting to take photos of the muffin liner part of the cookie.
For the instructions on making the creases on the liner, check out this cupcake tutorial.
As seen in photos below, these muffin liners are done in a lighter brown glaze.
After it has dried for 1-2 hours, use a cake tester to make the creases.

Make some blueberry glaze-icing-transfers on parchment paper.
Start with dark navy glaze and make varying sized circles and ovals.
(see photo below)
Allow them to dry for about 30 minutes.

Outline a small circle some where on each blueberry.
Allow it to dry for a few minutes and then add a squiggly line around the circle
to resemble a real blueberry.

Allow the muffin cookies and the blueberry transfers to dry overnight.


Before "gluing" the blueberries to the cookies, brush some super pearl luster dust on them.
 
Add a dot of glaze to the back of them and randomly place them on the muffin tops.



Making a mixture of Americolor chocolate brown, gold, and Bright White gels,
paint on some highlight lines to the muffin liner.
Allow this to dry well (an hour or so).

Then brush some super pearl luster dust on the liner.



For the "crumb topping", mix demerara sugar and white sanding sugar together.
Brush a light layer of corn syrup over the brown muffin top and 
immediately cover the muffin top with the sugar mixture.
Shake off the excess.

Flowers Cookie Pops (Tutorial)





In making the "Serving Mom Breakfast in Bed" cookies,
it only seemed fitting to make some flower cookies to put in a vase for the place setting.

I've not been one to like making real "cookie pops" (cookies on a stick).
Instead, I've always made "fake cookie pops instead.

But for this occasion, I chose to make the real deal.

Rather than bake the sticks in the cookies,
indent the side of the cookie with the end of the stick so you can "glue them together" later.
(see photo below)



Once the cookies are baked, you can decorate the cookies without having the stick attached.
(Trust me.....the stick can really get in the way!)

After the cookies have dried overnight, you can add a bit of glaze to the end of the stick and 
and push it up into the hole made prior to baking to glue the stick to the cookie.



Notice I added some extra glaze to the back of the cookie to ensure the stick stayed in place.




For the actual display, I placed the sticks within decorative straws for a special extra touch.

Personal Side

Well as I write this.....I'm surrounded by my packed luggage.
Tomorrow (Thursday) we'll be headed to Ukraine.
By the time you read this on Friday......I will already be there.
We should arrive about 4 AM CST on Friday.

It has been a busy busy week with lots of prep work.....
not only for the trip, but also for when I return.....
just 2 weeks before my oldest daughter's wedding!

I'll try my best to share photos from my trip on Facebook and Instagram,
but there is never guarantees of wifi while we are there.
I also have a Ukraine blog, but it often gets neglected until I return to the US,
since the wifi is so erratic.....but we can hope..... :)

Thanks so much for your support and love throughout the year.
This blog allows me the ability to go to Ukraine and minister to all the people.
It is a HUGE blessing.....so I thank you from the bottom of my heart. ♥
