As per usual....sorry I haven't blogged in a while. If you like this page on Facebook, then you'll notice I post pictures up there sooner than on here. Since my last post, I've made a lot of cookie sets. I am a hobby baker and just do cookies mainly for the fun of it or for family and friends.
I got a new cookie tool that I'm ecstatic about....a Kopykake! It is a projector that can project an image onto your cookie so you can make character cookies actually look like they're supposed too or write on a cookie nice and straight with cool fonts. The opportunities of what I can do on a cookie now are endless! The only thing I've used my Kopykake for so far is the Easter cookies at the bottom of this post. I used it to write "Happy Easter" on the plaque cookies.
|Valentine's Day cookies. I tried the new "chalkboard" effect on some of these. I still have a lot of practicing to do, but I had fun with it nonetheless. These are actually red velvet roll out cookies that I got from Sweet Adventures of Sugar Belle.|
|Birthday cookies for my best friend who lives in VA and I had to throw out the first set of cookies. She LOVES shoes (especially black pumps) and Starbucks. I love these cookie cutters I got from Piping Mad Prints (they have a facebook page....look em up!). I did have a little issue in shipping the shoes though....I sent her three shoe cookies and 2 of them broke....even with my careful packing. She still enjoyed the delicious cookies. I am not a talented enough drawer to do the actual Starbucks logo so I had to settle for writing it instead, but I'm still happy with the end result.|
|I made these cookies for the same best friend who lives in VA and just had a baby boy. I can't wait to meet the little guy! I'm a fake aunt now!!!|
|St. Patrick's Day cookies. I got the hat and rainbow cutters from Piping Mad Prints as well and love them. I had fun making these cookies though I did have some casualties.|
|I love Olaf's carrot nose :-) "Hi, I'm Olaf and I like warm hugs"|
|Logo cookies I made. These are all hand-done and no cheating methods were used.|
|Peeps! I love these Peep cookie cutters I found at Michael's. I'm actually not the biggest fan of Peeps....I find them to be a little too sweet....but I think they are absolutely adorable.|
