Picnic Basket Decorated Cookie (Tutorial)

Summer time and picnics......they just go together.
Nostalgia brings back the memory of picnic baskets filled with yummy foods.
 How about a cookie to represent all those memories?

You'll need a hexagon shaped cutter to make these picnic basket cookies.

Outline and flood the hexagon cookie with tan glaze as shown below.

Allow the icing to dry for about 4 hours.
Press this basket weave embosser into the main bottom half of partially dried glaze
(not the handle or lid on the top portion of the cookie).
see photo below

Add some horizontal lines to the handle of the basket as shown below.
(Be careful to not pipe them too close or they will run together into a big blob.)

Also, add a white triangular shape over the top of the basket as shown below.

Allow the cookie to dry overnight.

Brush dry caramel luster dust over the basket portion of the cookie.

Use a red food color marker to add some red checks to the cloth draping over the basket.

CookieCrazie's Week in Review




Personal Side

Last weekend I attempted TWO sets of cookies.....and it was wild.
But everything went well and I was able to complete the sets.

I'm working four days a week at the doctors office now and it's becoming
more common for me to work 6 hours in a day.
So needless to time is limited compared to the beginning of the year.
I'm trying to plan my week for one cookie set each weekend, but that is becoming challenging.
We'll see. :)

GOOD NEWS that I can FINALLY share with all of you.
I'm going to be a GRAMMY!
I'm so excited that my first born daughter, Jill, is expecting her little "chocolate chip" in December.
I've been nearly bursting with the news for over a month, but I can finally share now.
Oh the cookies I can make for this little one. :)
(Spoken just like a cookie decorator.....)

BBQ Kabob Decorated Cookie (Tutorial)

When dreaming about a BBQ cookie set for Fathers Day, a kabob cookie came to mind.

And with the help of Ronee of That's A Nice Cookie Cutter, a kabob cookie cutter was born.

This cookie requires green, yellow, red, brown, white, and gray icing colors.

Start with the outer three veggies (green pepper, mushroom, and cherry tomato)
by outlining and flooding them as photo shows below.

 Next add the steak (brown) and yellow pepper.

 Allow the cookie to dry for at least 1 hour (to prevent bleeding).

Add the metal (gray) kabob stick.
(see photo below)

 Allow the cookies to dry overnight.

Make a mixture of silver luster dust with some vodka or clear extract (i.e. almond).
Paint over all the parts of the kabob stick.

 Use a brown food color marker to make some grill lines on the veggies and meat.

Cookie Picnic Needs Ant Cookies (Tutorial)

To make ant cookies you will need:

 Outline the three segmented ant onto your cookie.
including legs, "feet", and antlers. 

 Flood those areas.

 After the black glaze has dried for a time, add the white eyeball and half smile.
After about 30 minutes, add the black pupil.

And on a side note...... I used baby bottles to make the mustard and ketchup bottles.
