Personal Side


I'm getting ready for a teaching event in Europe,
and may I just say that it is really hard to consider everything you use
and do when you decorate cookies!
I've started a pile of all the things I want to take...... and it is getting higher and higher.
Just the demo cookies alone are covering up the quilt on the bed in the guest room.

I am really looking forward to being with others that love to decorate cookies and 
sharing anything that might be helpful to them.
I'm sure it will be a good time to re-energize and gain some fresh inspiration.

The trees in Missouri have been especially beautiful this last week.
The colors......oh my!
I love fall so much.

Instagram photos for this week:


Mmmmm.....P-I-E-S.


Warm yourself by the fire.... :)


Of all the Christmas cookies decorated this week.....these were my favorites. :)


It's that season to eat yummy pie.


Happy Harvest Cookies from last year.....

Thanksgiving Pie Slice Cookies (Tutorial)






These pie slices are fairly simple.....but so fun and seasonal. :)


Cut out pie wedges and add some random "crust ribbons" on the edge to bake on top.
(see photo below)


I love a lattice crust on a pie......so I decided to make a sugar cookie lattice crust.
Just like pie crust, cut stripes of dough and weave them together.
Cut the lattice to fit the top of the pie slice cookie.


Depending on what kind of pie you are making will determine glaze color.
I chose a cherry lattice pie slice and a pumpkin pie slice.

Outline and flood the entire pie slice cookie excluding the ribbon crust.


After the "cherry pie" glaze dries for about 5 minutes,
place the lattice crust on top.
(If it's done too soon, it may cause the glaze to fall over the sides.)


Add a "whipped cream" dollop on top of the pumpkin pie, if desired.
(see photo below)

Using chocolate brown, warm brown, and bright white color gels,
brush some "golden brown character" onto the pie crusts.

Wedding Groom Heart Cookies (Tutorial)






I know there is nothing new about groom and bride heart cookies.
They've been around for many years.

But as I made them for my daughter's wedding last month......
I thought I might her wedding's version on the blog.

The cool thing about these wedding cookies is that they can be completely personalized.
Both the groom and bride's wedding attire can be emulated via a heart cookie!

My new son-in-law wore a grey suit with a plaid bow tie.


He's a quite a spiffy guy.
I love him tons!
So it was an honor to make him and my daughter some special cookies for their wedding.





Start off by making the white shirt on the heart cookie.
Outline and flood a triangle (of sorts) as seen below.


Allow the glaze to dry for about 1 hour and then add the gray suit.


Once the white glaze has dried for approximately 1 1/2- 2 hours,
use a cake tester to make some shirt lines and add some buttons.


Since the bow tie's base was white, I just added a white bow tie to the cookie
and will add the pink stripes later.


Outline and flood the gray lapels.


And finally......add the pink stripes on the bowtie. :)
