Merry Christmas everyone! I hope your holidays were full of wonderful times with family, food and festive times. This has been a busy month for me. I've been making cookies like crazy and I didn't have time to write blog posts for all the cookies. Sharing all my cookies is a Christmas present from Cheetah Cookies. The funny thing about many of the cookies I made this month was the majority of them were not Christmas related.
The set above I made for a cookies exchange that my sister in Minnesota was having earlier this month. I've always wanted to attend a cookie exchange but I've never been to one. The snowflakes and to-go cups are Sweet Sugarbelles. For the snowflakes, I used the template that came with the cutter to stencil the snowflake design with royal icing. The cocoa mug is from Sweet Leigh Print and the mittens from SheyB Design.
A personal traditional I have for almost every class I take at Yavapai College is to make cookies for the last class of the semester. This semester I took a pilates class on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. These cookies represent many of the saying the teacher Sarah used. These cookies were pretty simple using basic shapes. For the knit squares I used this stencil.
This set was requested by a company down in Phoenix that was completing a project. I used Sweet Sugarbelles alphabet set to spell out the project name. The triangle stencil was purchased from Cookie Countess but I couldn't find it online.
This set of cookies was created for an 11th birthday. The color scheme was requested by the birthday girl. I created a personalized stencil and used this rose stencil. Instead of stenciling the roses, I made royal icing roses to place them on the cookies. I made a special unicorn cookie using a cutter from SheyB design. Both SheyB cutters and the cutter I referenced in this post were ones that she gave out on Free Cutter Friday, so they can't be purchased. The roses were made following this tutorial.
These cookies were requested by a client I've made logo cookies for a few times this year. The house I used for these cookies was from here. It's hard to tell in my photograph, but the house have a board-on-batten pattern airbrushed on. I used this and this stencil to create the pattern. I used a piping tip to trace a circle as a piping guide for the wreathes.
I used a 14 star tip to pipe the wreath. I used different sprinkles to decorate the wreathes. For the wreaths with the bows, I used this mold with red fondant.
This last set was a Polar Express themed set for a second birthday. The birthday was going to be celebrated on the Polar Express Train in Williams, Arizona. With family in town we just took the train to the Grand Canyon when we return we saw all the children waiting to take the Polar Express it was so cute. I used this bell stencil on the number two. The train stencil I made myself. I painted the train cookies. For the tickets I used TMP gold. For the bell cookies I used TMP silver.
