Every Little Detail with Aproned Artist: Monarch Caterpillar and Butterfly Cookies

To my surprise, rice paper has become one of my favorite elements to incorporate into new designs. It’s such a versatile material. Rice paper can be molded (to create a balloon), imprinted (with the veining of a bumblebee wing), or kept flat (like the windows of a tiny cabin). It can be...

Nondescript Fleshtone Food Coloring Choices

· in Suppliers · 1 reply Julia M. Usher
Greetings, cookiers! I have an Antique White food color paste that I really like the color of for a "flesh" tone. It is definitely on the "white" side of fleshtone, but would like to get other people's idea of what makes for a good nondescript color choice where fleshtone is a large percentage of the cookie design (e.g. like a large hand). One reason for my interest has to do with the fact that I cannot seem to find this exact product and the other has to do with making sure I keep my...Read More...

Hi! I'm trying to build cookie bouquets and avoid styrofoam. I noticed a franchised business used small round bases for the sticks and can't seem to find these online! Can anyone think of a better way to secure my cookies in the basket?Read More...

I not only posted my summer sale a touch early, but I'm also ahead of the eight ball on posting our June site art! I'm headed out of town for some much-needed R&R, and I'm working my hardest in the remaining few hours before tomorrow's departure to ensure that my metaphorical decks are clear and free of distractions. So far so good. But, about our glorious June site art, which is why I am really here! Overflowing with flowers, this month's banner and backdrop are a compilation of three...Read More...

New Tutorial - Plus 50% Off! Featured

· in Blogs/Tutorials/Apps · 2 replies Julia M. UsherIcingsugarkeks
COOKIE OR CAKE? Just in time for summer wedding season, my latest 3-D cake tutorial hasn't a single crumb of actual cake in it! Comprised entirely of contoured cookies covered with modeling chocolate (or fondant) and festooned with royal icing flowers and leaves, this 12-cookie project is sure to wow. The other plus: it's a lot easier to make than it looks! Though my four-tier version embraces my more-is-more mentality (LOL!), the project can easily be scaled down by making fewer tiers. And,...Read More...
