Don't wanna be all wet in the rain?
OK....Umbrella cookies aren't really going to help you there....
but they sure are cute. ;)
To make umbrella cookies you'll need:
- Umbrella Cookies (hand cut or see below)
- Your choice color 10 Second Glaze
- Gray 10 Second Glaze
- Silver Luster Dust
- Almond Extract
Of the two umbrellas I made.....one is hand cut and
Just cut two pieces of the circle cookie out
(kind of like small pie pieces) leaving a handle. :)
Once your cookies are baked,
outline and flood the handle with gray glaze.
After at least 30 minutes of dry time,
add the outline of your umbrella.
(Notice I printed out clipart and used it as reference.)
After 20-30 minutes dry time,
fill in alternating sections of top
and inside layers of umbrella.
Allow to dry for at least 30 minutes.....
and then flood the remaining segments.
After it has dried for another 30 minutes,
Outline the rim of the umbrella.....
the part that should be "protruding" out closest to you.
Once the cookies have dried for several hours or overnight,
mix together a drop of almond extract with some silver luster dust.
Paint "silver" onto the gray part of the handle.
