Hi, Everybody!!

Galletas Vicake Orizaba
I am so glad to be here; this is a beatiful group where I can find inspiration and people with the same passion as me. My name is Vaiko-Viram; I am from Mexico. When I had my first boy, one day we decided to do cookies as a new activity . . . And I am never going to forget the happy face of my son when we finished our first cookies . . . That made me soo haaappy . . . maybe our first cookies were not the best and the most perfect but they were really special in my life . . . because they...Read More...

Yogurt Royal Icing

Kimberlie
I know this site has nothing to do with dogs, but I make human and dog cookies all the time. I see dog cookies with yogurt icing that dries hard all the time in stores, some not so good. I'd like to start making my own but I can't find much info on the subject. I'm thinking if I could get one that works well that I can flood and pipe with it could even be a healthy alternative for humans. If anyone knows anything I am all ears and thank you for putting up with my silly questions.Read More...
Hi, gals - I have a somewhat interesting situation and I'm not quite sure how to respond. I found myself wondering if other cookie artists have ever been in the same situation and how they have responded . . . so here it goes! Recently, I had an order inquiry for bachelorette party cookies. She texted me a photo of what she was interested in and the color scheme was very cute - black, white, pink, and gold - and the cookies were decorated well. The only problem is that there were several...Read More...

Fondant Fruit Molds

Forum: Tools
Kimberlie
I know this site is more about cookies than cakes, but I have a friend, and I need to make a cake for her one-year-old's birthday that is themed fruit. I can't find enough fondant molds in one place. If anyone knows where I can find them in the US, so I don't have to wait on customs, please let me know. I don't have much time. Thank you.Read More...

Site Art Swap!

Julia M. Usher
In case you thought you were seeing double, you weren't! Yes, the site background and banner art has changed for the second time in one month, because we have not one, but two honored site artists in May! As a refresher, @Sandra Garvey's glorious work decked the site until today, and now we're featuring @Kim Damon's vibrant Mother's Day tea set, just in time to ring out our moms' special day. In the event that you were wondering why the art you now see on...Read More...

Hi. I'm visiting my mom, and she asked that I make some cookies for her benifit auction tonight and tomorrow night. These are epic fails. I'm in Mexico working with gas appliances, which I'm not used to. Cookies browned a lot more than I like. She's never heard of a silpat. So we used parchment paper on aluminum sheets. Oven temperature is correct. Royal icing looked great. Colored well. 15-second consistency seemed very thick. I went with 8-second. Still had separation between colors. We...Read More...
