My Fifth Kitchen Club Release - Halloween Tombstone Kit!

 

Yay, I'm back! I know, I know, it's been a while since my last Kitchen Club kit, but since I'm now releasing kits just five times a year, they all come clustered around key cookie holidays, which tend to be toward the end of the year. Boring admin stuff aside (LOL), let's move on to discuss my much more interesting Halloween kit, now available for sale on my partner Confection Couture Stencils' site!

Designed to complement last year's Halloween Coffin and Skeleton kit, this latest release, simply called the Halloween Tombstone kit, allows you to make both 2-D and 3-D tombstones using brand-new tombstone cutters (three shapes in three sizes each) and previously released stencils in my Home Spooky Home Dynamic Duos™ sets. The deluxe kit option even has a brand-new stencil sheet (below center) with very fun tongue-in-cheek epitaphs for the tombstones.

The wide range of cutter shapes and sizes in the deluxe kit allows for quite varied and interesting cookie sets - and edible graveyard scenes if you decide to go that route as I have below.

Perhaps you noticed that I chose to take the 3-D (versus the 2-D) path here as well. Each of the three cookie tombstones (pictured left and right) is comprised of anywhere from three to four 2-D cookies that were filed, painted, iced, stenciled, airbrushed, and stacked to create freestanding, sculptural pieces of edible art. They also have the added surprise of being filled with small candies, so they're interactive too!

But you needn't get this complex with the deluxe kit. You can use all the same stencils and cutters and still achieve a striking 3-D effect just by perching 2-D cookies upright in cookie crumb "dirt".

Now, if you're new to cookie decorating or aren't sure you'll have the time for all of this variety, I also have a basic kit variation without the Epitaph stencil sheet and with fewer cutters. Or if you already have the kit stencils or just want to get your feet wet, the cutters and stencils can be purchased separately.

Both kits also come with the option of an added instructional video by yours truly. What this means is that you'll never have to ponder how to use the various elements in each set. I know, the many kit pieces might leave you scratching your head at first glance, but my video is exhaustive, leaving no detail unaddressed! It covers every element in the deluxe kit and how to mix and match those elements to create many different designs. And that's not all! It also explores 13 different decorating and construction techniques that can be used on these projects, and also on many other 2-D and 3-D designs. The following sneak peek will let you know exactly what to expect if you decide to purchase the full-length instructional video, which I hope you do!

Oh, and there's more great news! This time, I also have a bonus Graveyard Fence kit, which allows you to make the super special cookie-and-royal icing fence depicted in my luxe graveyard scene below. (You know me, I'm a more-is-more kind of gal; the airbrushed and stenciled backdrop in this scene is also completely edible!)
