Lace and Pearl Wedding Cake

Here's a wedding cake that I made a few weeks ago. The bride's wedding theme was Lace and Pearls. You can kind of see the lace on the 2nd tier, underneath the ribbon. The lace is the same color as the frosting, so it blends in and is hard to see.

Beautiful table set up with the cake.

Jungle Cupcakes for Boy Baby Shower

So here are the cupcakes that went with the monkey cookies and the baby shower onesies! Everything turned out so cute! I wish I had a picture of the cupcakes, monkey cookies and onesie cookies together, but alas, I don't.

I made the cupcakes and frosting shown here. But I did not make the cupcake toppers. They ordered the cupcake toppers from Etsy, I just put them on the cupcakes. (Although, I easily could have made them, they didn't know that I make cupcake toppers).

Cute jungle cupcakes!

Just a better look!

And a closer view of the elephant too!

Monkey Cookie Tutorial

Finally - the monkey cookie tutorial is here!

Here's what they will look like when you are all done! 

First, I outlined the ears. I was able to get a better curve with my royal icing by doing it this way. Personal preference of course. =o) 

Outline the rest of the cookie! 

Flood your cookie! And then give it a couple of hours to dry! 

Create a monkey face and then trace the face onto the royal icing with edible food markers! Let the marker dry for a little while before you pipe over it! 

Here's what it looks like after you have traced the face onto the royal icing! 

Pipe the monkey face on and let it dry for a couple of hours. Then go ahead and pipe the color of eyes on. 

Pipe the nose and the mouth on! And then I would wait for quite some time to pipe the black part of the eye and then to follow up with the white part of the eye. I would literally wait at least 8 - 10 hours for the black and white. The royal icing will bleed terrible with those colors. 

And you're done! 

 Thanks for looking!!

Science Lab Cookies

Beakers, flasks, scientists, test tubes. Well, today, during lab, we let the scientists eat the beaker and flask cookies!

Unfortunately, it wasn't a great picture! I was in a hurry and I just took a picture of the cookies on my way out the door. So there are more flasks than beakers in the picture and way more green than blue. But such is life. They liked the cookies (and they were Peanut Butter Sugar cookies)!
