Tea Time for Mom Decorated Cookie Collection

It's Tea Time for Mom.
What better way to celebrate her day than to gift her with beautiful cookies for tea.

Check out this cute set of tea cutters that That's A Nice Cookie made for this collection.

To all the Moms out there.....
remember that even though it seems the energy you expend for your children goes unnoticed,
it really will reap benefits that you never thought possible.
And eventually your children will rise up and realize how awesome you really are!

Her children arise and call her blessed.
Proverbs 31:28

Doily, Napkin, and Sugar Cube Decorated Cookies (Tutorial)

In case you can't tell.....we're planning a tea party....... for Mom. :)

So we're going to need some doilies, napkins and sugar cubes.......cookies that is!

Here's the sugar cube cutter.
(There's several more cutters from the Time for Tea set on That's a Nice Cookie Cutter.)

For doilies, use a large flower shape with plenty of petals (like these).
Before baking the cookies, use a circle cutter to partially cut a circle in the middle.
(Don't press too hard or you'll have a donut shape. ;))

Outline and flood the center of the doily with white glaze.
(Ignore the fact that I outlined the outer part and filled it with translucent glaze.
It didn't work as well as I thought it would....and thus is unnecessary.)

Next, outline the outer portion, plus outline small circles in each of the "petals".
Flood all of the outer portion except for the insides of the small circles.
(see photo below)

Allow the glaze to dry for about 2 hours.
Using a cake tester, poke lots of holes all around the edges to make it look like lace.

For the napkins, cut square cookies and then cut them diagonally to have two triangles.
Bake and cool as usual.
Outline and flood them in your choice of colors.

Allow them to dry for 4-5 hours (depending upon how big they are),
and then press silicone texture mats into the partially dried glaze.
For the napkins pictured here, I used this mat and this mat.

For the sugar cubes, use this cutter.

Outline and flood the three portions of the cube in white glaze as shown below
(keeping each portion from touching).

Cover the wet glaze with white sanding sugar and shake off the excess.
(I love using a tray like this to make the job much neater.)

I can smell the tea brewing already...... :)

CookieCrazie's Week in Review


Personal Side

I'm still chuggin' along.......last weekend I made cherry-themed cookies and it was a blast.
There is something so pleasurable for me about taking all the latest techniques and tricks I've learned and implementing them into special themes.
I'm truly grateful I get to do what I do.
Thanks be to God, for He is the reason I'm so blessed. :)

This weekend I'm diving into a fun summer theme.
I made my list yesterday morning of all the designs I wanted to do, and it was ridiculously long!
So I'm trying to pare it down into a more reasonable set of cookies.
That's a difficult task in my book.
My mind runs wild and I want to try all the ideas floating about.
Self control and discipline....they are things I have to work on constantly.

Ukraine trip planning is cranking up.
We are going the last two weeks of August.
When we first set the date.....we had six months to pull it all together,
so it went on my back burner.
Time to get "cookin'" and get the details worked out.
Now it's only THREE MONTHS away.....and that will FLY by. :)
