Tree Trunk Decorated Cookie (Tutorial)

For whatever reason, I always think of tree trunks and tree bark when I envision a rustic fall setting. Thankfully they are fairly easy to emulate on cookies using texture mats.

Here is where you'll find the tree trunk cutter offered by Ecrandal that I used for these cookies.

There are two varieties of tree trunk bark:

RUSTIC BROWN TREE BARK
Outline and flood the entire cookie with brown glaze.
(see video above to view the details of this tutorial)

Allow the glaze to dry for approximately 4 hours.

Using a bark texture mat, mold the partially dried glaze by pressing firmly on the mat that is laying face down over the glaze.

 

BIRCHWOOD TREE BARK
Cover the entire cookie shape in dry grey dust.
(see video above to view the details of this tutorial)

Paint over the gray base layer with Americolor Bright White gel.

Use a scribe, boo boo stick, or any other small instrument to carve out random dips, holes, lines, and texture all over the tree trunk.

Brush the carved out areas with dry black dust.



And there you have it......two varieties of tree trunk bark.
Simple and authentic.

CookieCrazie Chatter...... Friday, September 30, 2016

CookieCrazie's Week in Review


 

Personal Side

 

By the time this Chatter goes live.....the new website will be live!
Exciting times.......

Marshall of Byler Media has done a fantastic job building the new CookieCrazie website. I am THRILLED with how the site has turned out and all the added features we now have. And I'm grateful to God that He provided all the means for it to happen.

Needless to say, the new website has taken a tremendous amount of time and energy. Hopefully both Marshall and I can be able to focus on other things after that huge task. :)

This weekend I'm out of town again, so no cookie decorating going on here. But hopefully I can decorate next weekend.

We are having FALL weather now.....it it is delightful! I love this time of year.

Simple Autumn Tree Decorated Cookies (Tutorial)

Here's a clever way to add fall trees to your autumn cookie collection.

All you'll need are candy cornpumpkin and balloon cutters. :)

Outline and flood 3/4 of the top of the cookie with an autumn colored glaze.

While still wet, add a brown trunk to the bottom of the cookie,

and pipe brown on top of the wet glaze to form branch that goes almost to to the top of the "tree".

Use a toothpick or scribe to make branches coming out from the trunk.

(see photo below)

Super simple..... :)
