Mod Monkey

Monkeys are awesome.  You just can't help but smile when you look at them!  I mean really, look at that face!

These cookies were designed for a 1st birthday party with a monkey theme.  Mod monkey is such an adorable design, and I was happy to have the opportunity to use my KopyKake again!

Something about all these little monkey faces lined up makes me want to laugh :)

Autumn cookies

Fall is officially here! (well OK, I'm a few days late).  Here's a selection of the cookies that are now available on the website.  Hopefully more to come soon!

Baby Animals

Meet my new favorite toy - the KopyKake projector!  I am so excited to add this to my cookie decorating tools.  The KopyKate allows you to project an image directly onto your cookie so that you can trace the outline.  Woohoo!

For my first project, I tried out the projector on this cute baby shower invitation from Tiny Prints:

I did 4 different cookies, one for each animal, and this is the final result!

Overall, I thought the projector was fairly easy to use.  It’s still a challenge to decide exactly how to translate the image into icing, but I was really happy with the final result.

I’m also happy to report that the mom-to-be loved the cookies!

Here's a close up of each cookie, just because I loved these little guys :)

Royal Icing Transfers

When you’re doing a lot of cookies with the same design, I find the easiest way to make sure that they all look uniform is to use royal icing transfers (assuming you don’t have a KopyKake projector - more on that to come soon!).

These cookies were made for a first birthday party with a puppy dog theme.  The "1"s on the paw print were made using transfers.  Continue reading for more on royal icing transfers.

Baptism Cookies

Remember the super cute twins from this post?  Well, they were baptized recently and these are the cookies that I made for their party.  They were a simple, traditional design that turned out to be a big hit at the party. 

The flowers were made with stiff royal icing and a #14 tip using a basic Wilton technique.  For more information on how to make these rosettes, click here.

It’s been a while since my last post, so I promise to have lots of fun new things to share with you in the coming weeks!
