Flip Flop Cookies (Tutorial)





It's time to "step" into summer (haha).......
so let's make some simple flip flop cookies to celebrate.

There's lots of flip flop cutters available.
An alternative is to use a long oval and curve it in the right places to form a flip flop shape.


Once the cookie is baked, outline and flood it with 10-second glaze in your choice color.
Dry overnight.

Roll some edible glaze molding clay into a long "snake" shape and
place on cookie to form the strap.


Using additional edible glaze molding clay, mold a flower that will fit well over the toe strap.
Press the flower onto the strap and allow it to adhere for a few hours.
The flower molds used (shown in the photo below) were purchased here and here.

CookieCrazie Chatter...... Friday, May 31, 2013

CookieCrazie's Week in Review









_________________________________________________

Personal Side

This week has been so fun.
I'm convinced more and more that the anticipation of a trip or fun event is the best part.

I've been decorating cookies for my trip,
shopping for last minute details,
pulling together blog posts for the next six weeks (!)
making lists and checking them twice, :)
getting things ready for the family while I'm gone for 26 days (yikes!),
minimizing as I've packed my suitcases,
and lots and lots of other things.
But it has been pure joy.

I'm very very excited to be visiting two cookie friends in England for a few days,
(I can't wait to see you, Michelle and Steph!)
and then going on to Ukraine to visit with my precious friend, Nadia.
The final two weeks will be in Ukraine doing our mission work as I do every year.

It's going to be quite a trip!
I'm sure I'll be ready to come home when it is time.......
but oh the memories that will be made!

I'm nearly ready to go.
I still have to work tomorrow at the hospital lab for my regular shift.
And then Sunday morning I will take off for Manchester, UK.

If you want to keep up with my trip, I'll try to post photos on my Instagram and Facebook.
And I'll also try to write about it in these CookieCrazieChatters each week.

If you'd like to read about the actual Ukraine ministries we'll do from June 14-28,
you can check out my Ukraine blog, CrazieCommitment.
There's nothing fancy about that blog.....just a place to share my thoughts and experiences.

I have all my CookieCrazie blog posts loaded up for the next several weeks.
I wanted to continue the blog going even while I was gone.
I'll try to pop in here at the end of each week and give you a small recap,
but there is never guarantee of internet in Ukraine.
So I'll be here if I can.
If not.....consider me here in heart. :)

Thanks so much for all your support throughout the year.
It is because of that support that I'm able to finance my trip
and the ministries we do while we are in Ukraine.
I'm extremely grateful for all of those who have ordered cookies from me,
visited my website, or bought my custom cookie cutters.
Because of these three avenues, I've been able to earn income to give to Ukraine missions.
What a joy it is decorate cookies (something I LOVE to do!) and then share about it here.
Is it a lot of work? Yes.
Is it worth it? ABSOLUTELY!!!!

Here I go.......

Instagram photos for this week:


Makin' a little sweet love for my beloved Ukrainians. :)

Here's the flip flop cookies for the Ukraine women's retreat. :)

First time using space bags for travel.
The coolest part (and only another cookie decorator could appreciate this...)
is I layered the cookies in between the clothes before gently compressing the bag.
What a perfect little nest for my cookies....
Plus I have extra space in my luggage. Happy!!


Hey.....I'm going to England.
I've got to have appropriate cookies, ya know. ;)

Summer Heat!

Summer is certainly not over, but I'll probably not do too many more summer cookies this season. My plate is full these next few weeks.....especially with baby showers. :)

So here's one final pic of summer cookies to celebrate the season.....AND the cooler temps forecast for the next week! :)


Stay as cool as you can......hopefully looking at ice cream cone cookies helps. ;)
