Go Play with Your Food!!!


 Who doesn't love playing with their food? Not me. Not many of the talented cookiers I know. We all collaborated on a group project we like to call, "Play with your Food."


Angela over at Oh Sugar, Events! put together this amazing project. Isn't it wonderful?!! She is wonderful! If you haven't yet, please please please hop on over to her blog to check out this creative project and mainly her naked operation guy. You won't be disappointed!

The point of the project was #1 to have fun, #2 choose a game, activity, toy etc that you can *play* with. This was my submission.  A mix and match flip book. It took alot more planning than I thought. But overall was sure was fun to do.





  I first sketched out the characters on paper, used my KopyKake to transfer those images onto the cookie. I then painted the cookies with food coloring.

Why did I do it that way you ask? Instead of the awesome coloring book method that Montreal Confections posted? Well, if I piped a line onto the dry white icing, there would be a bump and the book would be even thicker than it is! Also if I did the coloring book method, I didn't think I could get a nice "thick and thin" and "sketchy" line, that I like in my drawings. So I used edible marker. Note to self: edible marker is not truly permanent on cookies. However,  it is on children's hands.



I then used food coloring the same way you would watercolors. *Check out Arty McGoo's submission for real painting on cookies!!!

Mason Jars and Flowers Oh My!

Who knew, when Gretchen over at Three Little Monkey's Studio hired me to do some little mason jars and flowers for her Grandmother's 90th Birthday, these would be such a hit??!! But I humbly accept any and all the compliments you all have given me! I have received so many inquires, I just can't complete them all.
One order I was able to do was for a lovely Retro 60th Birthday. Thank you so much for your order Elizabeth! These are always so much fun to do!

Dr. Seuss Birthday

I was so excited to make these Dr. Seuss cookies. Although as a cookie, there are many out there... I was excited to do these. Dr. Seuss was a big part of my childhood and I hope little Preston has many great memories growing up! Happy Birthday Little man!
