Christmas Cookies….




Thought they would be a bit of fun for the children and a bit of cookie bling for the adults DSC03609


Just something a bit different for me to do…all part of this journey I seem to be taking into icing and decorating with it….



These are rolled sugar cookies covered in fondant …….and do you know what …I think I prefer this to flooding. Don’t get me wrong I like flooding with icing but this was quicker….I like quicker Winking smile


I wish I had made more of the snowmen…why?…because they were really quick …a bit of food colouring and a couple of minutes and hey presto a snowman !!! Not as big as the Christmas trees…so good for the smaller squids.


                                                            I like this as a way of covering the cookies…keeps things much more simple…roll out the fondant and cut it using the same cutter as  you did for the cookies….DSC03613

                                               ………..Then add your own decorations ….these are mine. They’re a first attempt and whilst they don’t have the finesses that I’ve seen on some….it’s a start.

Happy Birthday Gene

Doesn’t need much explaining really …it was our friends little boy’s 4th birthday.

Normally I would make the cake as a gift but this year his Mum is making an ice cream cake for him …but she did say if you’d like to do something else creative then please go for it.

Well I can’t go to a party without taking food with me ..it just doesn’t feel right somehow (although technically I am not actually going to this party as I’m sick but you know what I mean). So inspired by some of the blogs I’ve been reading of late I thought I would have a go at making some biscuits.

It’s the first time I’ve had a go at piping on biscuits and using royal icing but I am interested all the time in learning new skills. I take my hat off to those who do this a lot…it’s really not easy !!!! Would I make more…you betcha (but I think I will need to get some more icing nozzles because my basic supermarket few dollars pack didn’t really make life easy)…..still they looked pretty and the hundreds and thousands hid a multitude of sins LOL!!!
