Spooky Cookies!

Halloween-themed iced cookies!!!
I tried a new cookie recipe, and decided to practise my cookie icing skills with royal icing. Since its Halloween soon, I decided to try some creepy, spooky design ideas!

My son has already called dibs on the jack-o-lantern cookie! 😛

So what did I discover while practising…
First – I need a few more icing nozzles, like two or three in each size, OR, I need to perfect my piping-bag-folding skills (the disposable ones don’t have a nice round opening when you trim them).
Second – I have to plan ahead better! Copying a picture is absolutely possible, but you have to be sure where to start and how to finish since the royal icing dries as you work.
Third – I have to practise my technique and my icing consistency more. I am a little shaky, and my icing is often too thick to be easily used.
Last, but not least – I will have to do at least 6 of one design for orders! Doing all 22 of these cookies with a different design REALLY slowed me down – some kind of “assembly line” process is essential.

I had a lot of fun with them! What do you think?

Cake with F•R•I•E•N•D•S

I recently started watching F•R•I•E•N•D•S on Showmax, and even though I have seen the show from beginning to end more than a couple of times – I still giggle like a lunatic!
Then I started seeing cakes with “Friends” as a theme popping up in my social media timeline, so its not just me who still loves the show! 😀
Here are several from CakesDecor.com to show you what a fun cake theme it can be!

You can click on each picture to go and take a look at the cake. 🙂
