Happy Veterans Day! I was really excited to make these cookies for a party for a man who was just accepted into the Air Force. The theme for these cookies is stencils. I used a stencil on almost all of these.
If you’re like me, making flag cookies is a daunting task. I try hard to not be a perfectionist but when the strips are not straight, it drives me crazy. Ever since I purchased this stencil, making flag cookies has become a breeze. To create the camouflage stars, I again used a stencil. I iced the stars with white icing and then airbrushed it with warm brown. I only used two parts of this stencil. I used avocado green and combined royal blue and black to create a slate blue color.
When I researched the Air Force, the Air Force logo was the first thing that came up. With the logo being simple with straight lines and a circle, I knew that I could make my own stencil. I used my Silhouette Portrait. I stenciled the logo with royal icing. I used this stencil to create the cloud background for the helicopters and purchased a helicopter shape from the Silhouette store to make a helicopter stencil. For the Air Force men, I used clip-art that I purchased from SrappinDoodles. This is where you can find the clip-art.
