Special Wedding Favors

I just got married October 13 2011. I made my own favors to match the color scheme of the flowers I had in my bouquet and centerpieces. Red, orange, purple, hot pink and deep green. The cookies were HUGE...about 6" tall. I flooded them with an ivory color and then did some flower designs with the brush embroidery technique cascading on one side. The centers of the flowers I added a little silver luster dust for some sparkle. They came out beautiful & everyone loved them. I will always remember these because they were my wedding favors AND...because they are the one cookie that literally took me the longest to decorate. haha...luckily it was for a special occasion ;)

Halloween Cookies

I think these Halloween cookies had to be the funnest yet. Who doesn't love Halloween? Its still early an have time to make some more Halloween cookies if I like....Hmmmm I think that may be a GO! Check my Flickr for more pics...

Hello-ween Time!

I saw this cute image on an invitation and of course I thought....ooohhh that would be so cool if I made a cookie like that. Well these came out mighty cute I may say. I didnt want to ice the whole cookie black....since black icing tends to leave your mouth & teeth black haha. So I read on LilaLoa's blog that if you add some drops of black food coloring into your chocolate cookie dough you will get black cookies. No black teeth & no aftertaste. WOW this is brilliant!

Autumn themed cookies

i did a cookie swap with about 16 amazing and talented cookie artists. we had to do an autumn themed cookie. first thing that came to my mind was a tree and leaves in autumn colors. i had some issues with the oils of the cookie coming up through the royal icing since i did not wait a day to let them dry out. so i took a brand new sponge and dipped it in food coloring very lightly and touched it up. i kinda like the effect it gave and it covered up the mess up haha. all in all i am happy with them.

WIX....not twix, WIX !

i have been using blogger for my cupookie website for sometime now and just switched over to a "real" website if thats what you want to call it lol. is a really cool site that lets you create your own website yourself. its pretty simple and self explanitory. if you are pretty good with computers & understand software you can do alot of cool things to your site as well and make it that much better. so here it is just finished it lastnight. im sure i will have some additions and tweaks here & there but overall im pretty happy with it. its simple, basic, informative and all i need. just wanted to share this in case some didnt know about this site and have been wanting to do a website of their own that you can DIY! yes DO IT YOURSELF!!!
alright folks...wishing all my fellow bakers, creators, artists, decorators and any others that share the same passion with me a wonderful sunday ♥

Henna Inspired

I love to do intricate designs. Where I can sit down and just pay attention to detail and then the finished product blows my mind away. Ive seen heena inspired cookies and thought I would take a crack at it. My problem was figuring out how to get royal icing out of a teeny tiny tip. I remember reading somewhere online to take your royal icing and strain it through a nylon...a clean one of course haha! That way any hard pieces of meringue powder will stay in the nylon. I tried it and clogged tip. I was impressed. I wish I would of used this method before because I cant tell you how many frusterating times my tip would clog and I would have to take it apart, clean and then a few minutes later clogging again. But then again...gotta learn the hard way sometimes lol.

Im so thrilled with the way these cookies came out. All the hours spent on these and the back ache from sitting in the chair was all worth it. ;)

Flames N Skullz

one thing i love is flames & skulls. now my house is not decorated in such but i do have a few things that have flames n skulls decorated on it. ive always loved the badass look. i wanted to do a black cookie with black skull, red & orange flames. well we all know what black icing does to the mouth so i decided to go with white background. i made some skull royal transfers in black and they just didnt look right on the white cookie. so yes i tossed em and started over and made the white skulls. ahhh so much better. i love this cookie!
