CookieCrazie Chatter...... Friday, May 24, 2013











_________________________________________________________

CookieCrazie's Week in Review








_________________________________________________

Personal Side

I'm feeling really good about all the trip preparation that has gotten done this week.
I got all my cookie photos edited and have already pulled together 
6 of the 14 blog posts I'm writing for the next 7 weeks. 
I think I'll get the rest done this weekend. Hurray!

I've bought all the gifts I want to take to various people.
I baked all the cookies I'm taking to the Ukrainians.
I just need to decorate those on Monday.
(Simple simple simple......is the name of the game there. ;))
Today Jill and I went to my favorite grocery stores to get lots of healthy snacks for the trip.
I've already started my piles of the things I'm taking.  
I hope to simplify everything so I don't take excess.
It's always so stressful to make sure my bags are not overweight.
This year.....I want to be underweight with NO problem. :)

Tomorrow we have our final meeting about the Ukraine trip.
It's always so exciting to think about how we are going VERY soon. :)
I leave one week from Sunday.....so I've got one more CookieCrazie Chatter before I leave.

I'm super excited to show you all the cookie collections I've made over the last 2 months.
I've been saving them all up in anticipation of me being gone for a month......
so CookieCrazie will not completely disappear.

We have a fun family weekend planned.
Neil & Becca will be here and so hopefully most of us can get together for a BBQ on Sunday.
Ahh......the memories.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend 
remembering those who have sacrificed to make our country so amazing. :)

It won't be long now.....

Cookie Graduation Cap (Tutorial)





You know me.....and 3D cookies. Love 'em!

You'll need some chocolate cookie dough (or just color regular dough with black food color gel).
For one grad cap, you'll need 3-ovals cookies and 1-diamond cookie slightly bigger than the ovals.


With black 10-second glaze, "glue" the ovals and diamond together.

Add a black button to the mortarboard.

Then make a few tassel cookies (tutorial here) with bakers twine attached.....and you're ready to go!

Graduation Cap Cookies (Tutorial)





There's plenty of graduation cap cutters out there that have become rather ordinary.
I wanted to create a unique graduation cap that would be fairly simple for anyone to cut.

I ordered my long rectangle from Ecrandal (it's 5" by 2")
but you can get something similar at Plastics in Print or Cheep Cheap Cookie Cutters.

Use a larger diamond cutter to to give the cap it's shape.
And then just rolled a bit of dough into an oval and add to the top of the cap for a button.
Easy peasy..... :)

Outline and flood the bottom part (skull cap) in black 10-second glaze.
Once it's dried for 30+ minutes, flood the "mortarboard".
And finally, outline and flood the "button" on the top.



And then to make them more authentic and much more interesting,
add a tassel cookie that has some baker's twine attached.

For a cute presentation, package the two cookies together in the same bag. :)
