Personal Side

It's been two weeks since I wrote my last CookieCrazie Chatter.
Last week my wifi was available to post it.
So here I am with two weeks worth of "chatter". haha

By the time this is posted, I will be well on my way back home from Ukraine.
We leave at about 4 AM CST time from Ukraine today
and will arrive home at nearly midnight Friday night.
It's a long weary trip......but we will be so excited to go home, that nothing else will matter. 

Our trip has been extremely fruitful.
And believe it or not, it has been one of the smoothest trips we've had.
We are so grateful for all the tasks accomplished......
but mostly the people we were able to encourage and brighten.
It has been one of those trips were the outcome is evidence of something
far greater than we could even imagine.

Thank you for your prayers and encouraging words.
I am so blessed to have such sweet supporters of my beloved ministry.
YOU are a part of it as you come read my blog and tutorials.
Thank you!

Next week.....after some recovery time......I will get back to cookies and being more active online.

Happy Saturday!
I'm at a restaurant with wifi today and getting a chance to catch up on all-things-internet. :)
We are doing well and are accomplishing so much in Ukraine.

Continuing to take the passion of cookie decorating to the Ukrainian people.
Yesterday, we made 170 heart and plaque cookies for a basic decorating class I'm teaching
at the women's retreat on Monday.
I can't wait to share this with the ladies!! ❤


Happy Tuesday!

Fathers Day Collared Dress Shirt Cookie (Tutorial)






Believe it or not..... Fathers Day happens in just 3 weeks!
And Dad needs some special cookies to celebrate all he is in our lives.


How about a collared dress shirt cookie?


To make this cookie more dimensional, form a collar with cookie dough
around the top of a tall rectangle shape,  of which the top corners had been snipped off.


The 3D collar makes it much easier to add the customized texture on the shirt.

Outline and flood the entire cookie in white glaze.


After at least 30 min, add an outline around the collar and a line down the middle.


Carefully flood the collar to give it a puffier look.
Be careful not to add too much glaze as it will overflow.


Allow the cookie to dry for a total of 4 hours before imprinting a message over the mid-section.
These letter presses were used to add the "Happy Fathers Day" greeting.

Dry overnight.
Brush on dry black color dust to the neck area of the shirt
and your-color-of-choice dust to the rest of the shirt to give it some color.

Will You Go To Prom With Me? Cookie Collection






I had the distinct privilege of creating a set of cookies for a family friend to ask his girl to prom.

What a fun way to present the question!

Knowing Harlee Ann's favorite color is dark blue...I took off with lots of ideas swirling in my head. :)

I even made a matching set of cookies for the family to share.



Here's Andrew and Harlee Ann right after he asked her the big question.....


And her response came back just as clever as the question in cookies.....
She gave Andrew a puzzle to complete to learn her answer.

She said YES!
(uhhh....actually she said, "I'm bursting to go to prom with you")


And then, the big day arrived.
What a gorgeous couple......actually LOTS of gorgeous couples. :)
