BarberShop Cookie Collection

This Fathers Day theme was one of those ideas that grew and grew.
Eventually I had to limit myself, because there were so many possibilities.
To say I had fun would be an understatement. ;)

The old-time barber shop that I can remember from growing up
brings back fond memories of my dad.
He's been gone for 13 years and I miss him.

To all the fathers out there.....we are thrilled that you are in our lives and
that you contribute so much to who we are.

Thank you Dad!
Have a cookie. :)

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. :)

Happy Fathers Day 2014! Cookies

It's time to celebrate Dad!

I took the vintage approach this year......thinking about things from my grandpa and dad's eras.
It was a bunch of fun.

I hope all dads, fathers, and "pappa"s out there enjoy their day. :)

Red, Black, & White Cookies: ONLY Three Colors of Icing :)

I'm not good at limiting how many colors of glaze I make for each set of cookies.
Rarely do I make less than 6-7 colors in any collection.
But I was intrigued with the idea of using just THREE colors
to make as many patterns and textures as I could think of.

I was astounded at how much I loved making this set.
Of course.....the three vibrant colors of red, black, and white are distinctive on their own.
But the "simplicity of color" does something crazy with the brain. haha

This is one of my favorite sets of cookies ever. :)

I'll be doing this again......for sure!
