Red Velvet Cookie Collection







Red Velvet Cake......a flavor I've not really had opinion about one way or another in the past.
But my newest son-in-law, Joe, is CRAZIE about red velvet ANYthing.

And so.....being the crazie mother-in-law that I am, haha,
I had to make him some red velvet cookies.

Now these are not just red velvet-flavored cookies with cream cheese-flavored glaze.......
they also LOOK like red velvet cakes and cupcakes.
I've got to keep up the reputation with the newest member of our family, ya know. ;)


After researching red velvet cut-out cookies, I decided to try SugarBelle's recipe.
Her recipe includes Lorann's Red Velvet Emulsion.


And then I had the idea to add Lorann's Cream Cheese Emulsion to my glaze recipe.
This just in from the official taste testers........the combination is declared a winner. :)


Upon researching photos of red velvet concoctions,
it seemed reasonable to grate some naked red velvet cookies and use them as a garnish.




The filler cookies in the birthday cookie platter were rectangle cookies,
flooded with white (cream cheese-flavored) glaze, and red velvet cookie crumbs sprinkled on top.


Adding a tiny amount of water to white edible clay allowed me to pipe
fun decorations on the red velvet "cake on a pedestal" cookie. :)


Happy Birthday Joe!


You are one in a million and I love you tons. :)

Jake's Baseball Cookie Collection






My new son-in-law, Jake, just had a birthday a few months ago.
This was his first birthday celebrating with a cookiecrazie mother-in-law. ;)

Since he is CRAZIE about St. Louis Cardinal baseball.....
I wanted to make him some appropriate cookies for his special day.


This is Jake in his happy place......taken at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.


Happy Belated Birthday Day, Jake.
I think you're awesome!

Personal Side


Christmas cookies abound here. heehee
I have had a BLAST making new designs for the coming season.
I can't wait to share......but it will be a while. ;)

Next week, I have a few random cookies shapes I've been wanting to decorate......
I may even get a video or two made......we'll see.
Then I'll be ready to turn all my focus on the coming pre-Cookie Con classes.
There is still an opening on Wednesday afternoon, if anyone is interested.

August is flying by....and soon it will be FALL. 
Yeah.....I love all that the coming season encompasses.
