Tidbits

Testing. 1, 2, 3

Posted by Anne Yorks on Friday, April 27, 2012

Over the last few weeks, I have been testing out a few new gadgets and ideas.

And, I'll let you in on a little secret, I really want to be an 'icing ruffle' master. But I have a LONG way to go. This weekend, I am making special tutu cookies for my 4-year-old's first dance recital. I have a ruffle plan for the skirt that I am hoping and praying works out. Here is a practice cookie that wasn't so bad. It was inspired by a cookie I drooled over from JP Creatibles. (click here to see her cookies. They are unbelievable).


I can't wait to try it for real. Wish me luck!

Then this week, I hosted a decorating party with a local girl scout troop. I have been dying to try a daisy I saw on the Bearfoot Baker's a few weeks ago. Her blog is FULL of fun cookie tips and ideas. I followed her instructions, and although I was shaky in the beginning, I think I got the hang of it by the end. I would definitely give this another try because I think it made the daisy look more realistic. 


And finally, this is my first attempt at airbrushing a cookie. I named my airbrush Blasto, because he is a powerful little guy.


It is so much fun! I have used it a couple times since this project and I think I am starting to get a feel for the trigger. I can't wait to find new ways to use it on future projects.

Now I just need to practice, practice, practice to get things just right. But it's always fun to try to new ideas!

Have a sweet weekend!

    There are just days when you want to be a child and twirl around in a tutu till you cant twirl no more and then spend the rest of the afentroon laying in the grass staring at the clouds. Why is it we forget how simple and fun life can be when we grow up?Thanks for the walk down memory lane!

    I love what you’ve done here. The dress is amazing(I’ve drooled over the same one @JPCreatibles), and I absolutely love what you did with the patterns on the daisies!
