Personal Side

My time here in Sao Paulo, Brazil has been wonderful.
It has been hard work to help Julia Usher with her EduK classes, but a very rewarding time.

There has been so many awesome sights, tastes, smells and sounds.......
but I have to say the best part is that the Brazilian people who are so warm and accommodating.
I have been blessed over and over again by so many new friends and their kindnesses.
I am grateful for the opportunity to be here and experience life (and cookies!) in Brazil.

By the time this entry is posted, I will be home......or nearly home.
My flight arrives in St. Louis on Friday morning.
I am looking very forward to being HOME!
And then.....it is time to get back to cookies this next week. :)

Happy Friday!


Fun with burlap and lace.....


Yesterday we went to a huge market in Sao Paulo, Brazil and enjoyed the sights, smells, and tastes.
Julia and I had a great sightseeing day before her EduK class tapings start on Monday. :)

Happy Sunday!

What's for lunch?


Another #tbt #throwback of a set using edible clay last year.
Purple is one of my favorite colors. :)

With all those happy frog faces.....there needed to be some cattails, lotus flowers,
dragonflies, mushrooms, and lily pads. :)

Can you hear the happy rib-bits coming from the pond?

Frog Cookies (Tutorial)





This is probably the most green and frog-filled post I've ever done. haha

These bulging-eyed frogs make me smile every time. :)

There are four different versions of the frog in this tutorial......
but they all have the same basic steps.


For the frog head, use a large six-petal flower cutter and cut off the bottom two petals.
(see photo below)


Outline and flood the entire cookie in green glaze.


Allow the green glaze to dry for at least an hour and then
outline and flood large white glaze circles for the eyes.


While the white glaze is still wet, add large brown or black circles in the center
and add a white accent line around the edge.
(see photo below)

Also add a nose and smile line with green glaze.


Dry overnight.

Brush with dry bronze and green leaf pearl dusts.



You'll need a large square cookie for the funky cornered frog head.
Outline and flood the top portion of the square with dark green glaze as shown below.


Wait at least 30 minutes before outlining and flooding the rest of the cookie in lighter green glaze.


Allow the green glaze to dry for at least an hour and then
outline and flood large white glaze circles for the eyes.


While the white glaze is still wet, add large brown or black circles in the center
and add a white accent line around the edge.
(see photo below)
Also add a nose and smile with green glaze.


Dry overnight.

Brush with dry bronze and green leaf pearl dusts.




Using this frog cutter, outline and flood the frog's legs and feet.
(see photo below)


Wait at least 15 minutes before adding the body of the frog.


And then wait another 15 minutes before adding the head of the frog.


Allow the green glaze to dry for at least an hour and then
outline and flood large white glaze circles for the eyes.


While the white glaze is still wet, add large brown or black circles in the center
and add a white accent line around the edge.
(see photo below)
Also add a nose and smile with green glaze.


Outline and flood the front frog legs as shown below.


Dry overnight.

Brush with dry bronze and green leaf pearl dusts.



To make your own "full-bodied" frog, cut a mason jar cookie and replace the top with a heart.
(see photo below)


Outline and flood the head and skinny body of the frog in green glaze.
(see photo below)


Allow the green glaze to dry for at least an hour and then
outline and flood large white glaze circles for the eyes.
Also, add some skinny back legs with green glaze.


While the white glaze is still wet, add large brown or black circles in the center
and add a white accent line around the edge.
(see photo below)
Also add a nose and smile with green glaze.


After the back legs have dried for about 1 hour,
use the flat end of a boo-boo stick to create a line
down the middle of the leg as shown in the photo above.

At this point, you can also add the front legs as shown below.


Dry overnight.

Brush with dry bronze and green leaf pearl dusts.



Such cute frogs.......and so fun to decorate!
