But at the same time, it is wonderful to think about the potential of a new year.

New Year Number Cookies (Tutorial)





I know, I know.....the DAY after Christmas and I'm already talking about the New Year.
But hey.....it is only six days away, right?

You've gotta take the plunge pretty quick in order to make New Years cookies. :)


Just like when I used letters to make autumn cookies,
here's the CookieCrazie version of using number cutters for New Year cookies.

The small set of number cutters are from Hobby Lobby.
They work great for putting on a background cookie.


The larger cutters are from this set.
They work pretty well for "smooshing" together to make one big happy cookie.


Make the background cookies in any pattern you'd like.


Then just add a little glaze to the back of the number cookies and "glue" them right on.


So easy.....and perfect for the New Year holiday.

Happy Birthday from SweetSugarBelle :)

A very dear friend helped me come up with this
whole idea of birthday week for CookieCrazie.
We were planning some other things for our blogs when I realized
that my blog birthday was coming up.

What fun it has been to pull together lots of
different things to celebrate the event.

But you know....it's not really about the blog.....
as much as it is about the people & relationships
surrounding the cookie community.
WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL people.
I've met many.....
and feel like I'm meeting at least one new one every day.

One of my bestie cookie friends is sweet Callye.

She agreed to help me celebrate by writing a guest post
for CookieCrazie's special day.

No need for introduction.....
I'll hand this post over to dear SweetSugarBelle. :)

Today is a very big day for my friend Pam. 
 I “met” Pam three years ago when
I began my OWN COOKIE ADVENTURE
 Now, four years later I am excited to help her
celebrate the birthday of her blog, Cookie Crazie.

As I mentioned before, I have known Pam since
almost the beginning of my cookie adventure.
She was one of the first cookiers to seek me out,
encourage me, and become a friend.

Just a few years later,
it's really mind-blowing to me that a simple
Flickr comment has turned into a lifelong friend. 

Anyway, today I'm here to celebrate
CookieCrazie's birthday the best way I know how.
COOKIE STYLE!

In honor of this special day
I'm going to show you how to make
number cookies with birthday hats.
These can be adapted to any number you like,
but today, of course,
I am making the number four!

To make these cookies you will need:
·      White piping and flood icing
·         Pink piping and flood icing
·         Stiff orange piping and flood icing
·         Yellow flood icing
To create this cookie I connected a star point to a “4”.

Begin by outlining the cookie as shown below.
 I used a marker to pre-mark the center of the cookie as a guide.

Next fill the “4” with pink flood icing.
 Let the cookie dry for an hour or two before moving on.


 Next, fill the “hat” and add flowers using the wet on wet technique.
 Since the flower detail is a bit small,
I used bottles like THESE fitted with a #1.5 PME tip.


At this point let the cookie dry for three to four hours.
To finish up, use a #233 tip to add a fringe and top to the party hat.


Let dry and you have a cute custom cookie everyone will love.

I would love to wish Cookie Crazie a very happy fourth birthday!
I cannot wait to see what the next year brings!
