Happy Birthday Noahsaurus!

Posted on February 28th, 2013 in Cakes, Cookies, Cupcakes

In the next few days I’ll be adding several post of desserts I have made… in the past. Lets say, ways back in the past.

2012 was a year of lots of sweets and treats that unfortunately didn’t get posted. So I am planning of showing the pictures and later adding the very important details about each and every event.

So with that, and and apology to my own son, we’ll get started with this post.

This was all for my Noah’s 4th birthday party.

Bernese Mountain Dog Cookies for Banks

Posted on February 12th, 2013 in Cookies

I have mixed feeling about the following post.

I absolutely love making sugar cookies, but this time I was a little bit sad during the process of baking and decorating these set of cookies.

They were designed to ‘celebrate’ the good life of a gorgeous dog who unfortunately passed away, Banks, a Bernese Mountain Dog.

Usually this tricolor  Swiss breed  has a patch of widely spread white hair on top of the head.

Banks had a distinctive line of white hair, more like a triangle. So I focused on that particular feature when creating all of his cookies.

This is my third set of BMD cookies.  You can see previous posts here and here. In this particular set I included four different designs.

I think this is by far my favorite design. The green leaves make the dog image pop up a little bit more, I think.

The cookies were  meant to be shared with family and friends of this wonderful dog.  Here one more time is Banks, the beautiful Bernese Mountain Dog.

I tried to capture his image the best I could. His owner was very happy to receive the cookies and like I told him, the cookies were made with love and always thinking of his beloved Banks.

How To Make Medal Cookies

Posted on February 11th, 2013 in Cookies, Totorials

It’s really hard to start talking about how to make cookies or decorating techniques without even sharing with you basic stuff such as a cookie recipe, but I promise I will work on it.

My point is, I won’t get too detailed or technical until I have shown you the basics (eventually).

This quick and short post is about showing you how you can make those medal cookies I created for my daughter’s gymnastics meet.

For now, feel free to use any cookie recipe you know. There’s lots of sugar cookie recipes out there. Even cookie dough from the grocery store might work.

This is all you need. Sugar cookie dough, circle cookie cutter and a straw.

Whether I make 5 or 100 cookies, this is how I make my make ALL my cookies.

Roll the dough inside two sticks of the same thickness to achieve cookies of the same height.

Use your cookie cutter to cut your cookie. Press, but do not remove the cutter yet. Take your straw and perforate the dough close to the top. Twist is a little bit and remove the straw. Now you can remove the cookie cutter.

What happens when you remove the cutter and then make the hole you ask? Well, you make the cookie expand just a little bit, but it was enough to drive me crazy. Don’t do it, but try it if you’d like.

This same idea works perfectly well with ornament cookies for Christmas. Use a pretty Christmas ribbon and hang your edible ornament cookies on your tree.

You see? You got two cookie ideas for the price of one!

I’ll try to make the post better in the future when I’m ready to post useful information such as cookie dough types and icings.  In the meantime, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that it was useful in any way.
