Are You Scared Yet? Lol
Some recent Halloween cookies I made for an event at my son's school. The cookies are made with Lila Loa's delicious chocolate cut out recipe, and decorated with The Decorated Cookie's "sort of" royal icing. TFL
Calla Lily Bridal Shower Cake
The bride loves calla lilies and cornflower blue, so that's what she's getting. This is my practice cake because I've never covered a square cake in fondant before. The corners are a b*tch!! Anywho, the real cake will be white almond with a raspberry filling, and white chocolate ganache, covered with fondant. She also wanted the white pistils (hope that's the right word) instead of yellow. TFL and please leave comments or criticisms. :-)
Baby It's Cold Outside
I had so much fun making this cake. The cake board is covered with light blue fondant, and the "snow" is royal icing. The figures are all gumpaste/fondant mix. The trees are just cones of gumpaste/fondant that are snipped with crafting scissors. The "igloo" was baked in 2 pyrex bowls, ganached and covered with white fondant. Impressions were then made with a dull knife to resemble ice blocks. The doorway is made from 2 rice krispies treats, smooshed together and wrapped in fondant. The inspiration for this cake was one I saw by Melissa Diamond of My Cake School. TFL
Flowers And A Kitty
The cookies are the Cookie Craft recipe with SugarDeaux's quick drying RI (from this site.) The white flowers are gumpaste, and the kitty is 50/50 fondant and gumpaste. Thanks for looking!
First Attempt At A Ruffle Cake
Not sure I like how this looks, but I thought I'd post it anyway. I found it hard to keep the ruffles the same size when piping them. Any suggestions? TFL
I guess I've got a thing for fish cookies. LOL. These are cream cheese cut out cookies, with a modified royal icing. The fish were cut and iced separately, then attached to the larger cookie. The fins, tail, lips, etc. are added after the fish are attached to the fishbowl. To get the rim look on top, cut off about 1/2" while the cookie is warm, then after the royal is dry, add a snake of white fondant. TFL
Pink And Green
These are done in royal icing, and stencils were used for some. (you can probably tell which those are.)The colors are from Americolor: electric green and electric pink. I know the picture quality is lame, but I'm just getting the hang of food photography. Also, I included these in a package I sent to Treats for Troops in Florida. You should check out their site; it's a great cause. TFL
Wanted to try my hand at this technique. The cake is Hershey's chocolate cake, with a whipped peanut butter/truffle filling. The cookie on top was piped with SugarDeaux's fast drying RI. Not perfect, but it was fun to do. TFL
I know it's early, but I love snowflakes. These are Melissa RHK's recipe with SugarDeaux's royal icing. I love that icing; it's smooth and dries very quickly. Recipe is in the recipe section here. TFL
Got the inspiration from a Wilton book. The cookie recipe is Martha Stewart's chocolate cut outs, and the icing is SugarDeaux's. The eaves on the houses are made separately and attached. TFL
Baby Shower Cookies
The SIL of the mom to be said to use lots of pink, so pink overload it was! :-) Cookies are Sugarbelle's confectioner sugar recipe, and Antonia74 royal icing. TFL
Baby Shower Cupcake Bouquet With A Little Extra
One dozen cuppies, made into a bouquet using the cup method. I generally use those "tulip" shaped liners from Wilton, inside the plastic cups, just to make it look a little nicer. Since I was also making 2 dozen cookies for the shower, I put a few of the "faces" in bags, and attached a stick to the back of the bag, as suggested by Karen of Karen's cookies. The cake pops were red velvet and key lime, to match the cuppies. TFL.
Orange And Blue Winter Set
Using some new cutters, and my favorite "Sort Of" Royal Icing glaze from The Decorated Cookie. The cookie itself is Best Ever Cream Cheese Cookies from this site. They taste awesome. TFL
Blue Winter Set
I know it's early, but I wanted to try out the sweater, mitten and hat cutters I got from Karen's Cookies. TFL
Just messing around with some small tips. I use The Decorated Cookie's "Sort Of" Royal Icing (it's like a mix of royal and glaze) and absolutely love it!! TFL
I Love My Dachshunds
Got these great cutters from Karen's Cookies. I use the Best Ever Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies from this site, along with Royal Icing (Sort Of) from The Decorated Cookie. Colors are all Americolor and I used mostly tips #1 and 2. TFL
More Fall Cookies
Again, I used the best ever cream cheese cookie recipe from this site, with Cookie Crazie's cookie glaze recipe.
