I had the opportunity to bake again for Kindermisik. This time, the treats were for a piano musical concert. The theme was Valentines Day and because it was piano performance, I wanted to incorporate musical items, especially a piano.
Here’s a quick look at the cookies as I arranged them in a tray.
Musical notes displayed on large cookie hearts or fancy shaped cookies. A variety of musical and love messages are part of this design.
I made this heart cookie with wings design last year and really liked the way they can be decorated. You can see them here. This year I decided to use an delicate and very elegant technique called “brush embroidery” on the wings.
Here are a few other assorted heart shaped cookies in different sizes, shapes and colors.
Here you see the pianos. I have to admit that I had a few issues with them this year and they were not as clean and/or straight as I wanted them to be, but I still liked them. I decided to add a pink key to them as well as hearts and love words.
The next heart shaped cookie is covered with a quilting technique. A piped border finishes the edges and gives them a special touch to them. This design doesn’t need much more details as it is simple and elegant just as it is.
A final look of the cookies in their platter. Although red, pink and white where the main Valentine’s Day colors, I love how there’s a few shades of bright yellow and purple in the set. The touch of black was added for the musical cookies and it stands out beautifully.
Thanks for visiting my site again. I hope you like the Valentines Day cookies for 2014.
