Flower Bouquet Cookie (Tutorial)





Flower bouquet cookies fit well with a prom or wedding cookie set.

This bouquet uses the CookieCrazie custom cupcake cutter.
Trim it as shown below.



Outline and flood the entire cookie in green glaze.


Wait approximately 30 minutes.
Pipe random stem lines all over the green glaze.




For added dimension, knead in a tiny amount of water to some green edible clay
and put it in a piping bag.

Use a #4 round tip to pipe some strong vertical stem lines from the bottom
of the cookie into the flared area.




Using a leaf tip with the same green clay, pipe random leaves all over the flared area.



Continuing with the green clay, use the grass tip to make lots of stems all over the top of the cookie.


Mold some edible clay flowers using a variety of colors.
Flower molds shown are here, here, and here.


Add some dots and shapes of glaze to resemble various flowers.


If desired, tie a ribbon around the base of the cookie.

Prom / Bridesmaid Dress Cookie (Tutorial)






I had the distinct privilege of making cookies for a family friend
to help him asked his girl to the prom.
Her favorite color is dark blue.....
so it made sense to add an elegant blue dress cookie to the assortment.

Rather than use a special cutters for the dress and suit,
it seemed better to pick a simple shape and depict part of the image on the cookie.

For the dress, I choose both an elongated oval and a common plaque cutter.
Both shapes managed to fit the design.

Outline and flood the cookie with a bodice, waist, and skirt.
(see photo below)

Allow the glaze to dry for 1-2 hours and then using a cake tester, add some pleats to the skirt.


Once the glaze has dried for a total of 4 hours (approximate timing),
press a swirly line texture mat into the glaze.


Add a waist band with the same color glaze.
(see photo below)


After the waist band has dried for at least 30 min, add a rosette swirl on top.


Allow the cookie to dry overnight.

To help the texture stand out on the dress, brush on super pearl dust.

Personal Side


For the last 24 hours, I've been enroute to Ukraine.
Something tells me I am probably tired of sitting in a small airplane seat....
and I've probably gotten very little sleep in the last day. haha
By the time this is posted.....I will probably be in L'viv.

It has been a whirlwind week.....with lots of last minute prep.
But I love the anticipation of trips like this.
It is so exciting to think about what could be accomplished during this year's excursion.

Internet access is very limited  in Ukraine.
There will only be rare occasions when I actually sit down with my phone or laptop and use wifi.
But you can be sure that when I get the opportunity, I will be updating.

The last seven trips are chronicled on it.....and this one (2015) will be too, as soon as I return home.
I also hope to post photos on my Instagram and FB pages

Thanks for all your support.
Your visits, comments, likes, and clicks on this blog help me help Ukraine. :)
It is such a pleasure to decorate cookies and show others what I've learned along the way.
Through advertising and now.....through teaching classes, I am generating finances to 
provide the airfare for my trip and also, supply much needed funds for the ministries we do there.
With much gratitude in my heart........I thank you!


♥♥♥



Instagram photos for this week:



OK. I can't post ONLY the cookies that I'm happy with, right?
My rookie status with the airbrush shines through TODAY. :(
Then I tried to cover it up by stamping "b-i-r-t-h-d-a-y" across the cookies.
(Tomorrow is my husband's birthday.....haha.)
Someday.....maybe this idea will be a good one. Ugh...




I'm bubblin' over with excitement for this set of cookies. :)



I'm happy to report that my new burlap silicone mat works exactly as I'd hoped. :)




#whomadeyouamother ❤
Just took a trip down memory lane.....gather photos of my loves.
I'm blessed beyond measure to be called Mom.
My heart is full.


Happy Mothers Day!
Enjoy celebrating the greatest profession of all. :)



Happy Tuesday!



Bacon.....loved and admired by most.
This is from last year's Mothers Day Breakfast in Bed set.
Mmmmmm......
