Hello Everyone. Its been a busy few days here. I had a few orders to work on and finally got then all finished and delivered. So far I only have two orders for next week for Father's Day so it looks like its going to be a slow week.
This is a birthday set I made for a friend's little boy. His birthday was today and part of his gift is a trip to the Cardinal stadium to see a ball game. His favorite player is #7, Matt Holliday. They wanted to give him a gift of baseball cookies as a hint to see if he would figure out what his actual gift was.
Also this week I wanted to try out this new flower technique that I learned watching a video by a very talented cookier...Amber Spiegel.
The technique almost makes the cookies look kinda lacy. I didn't think I did too bad for my first try.
The next one I did I used a gold lustre dust. I did it on several cookies but I really like how it turned out on this cookie that was iced black. It almost looks antique. It really does look really nice in person. :)
Of course I couldn't stop there.... I also had some pearl lustre dust and tried it on a couple different colors. I really like how they turned out on this teal colored flower.
I ended up doing several of these just to practice because I loved how they kept turning out. Wouldn't these be just beautiful for a bridal shower, wedding or even a tea party??? I really enjoyed this technique and look forward to the next chance I get to practice something else that I hope you all might like seeing.
Hope you have a great weekend!
