So today I am sharing my Father's Day Cookie sets!
They are Classic Rock themed!
As usual here are my sketches.
I just used some food coloring and a little bit of the Bakell Egyptian Gold. Really cool stuff.
I also used the Gold on the stars but not with food coloring.. just with vanilla extract.
The tongue was just made with some extra fondant I froze from Jaxon's birthday cupcakes. The leftover was just gonna go in the trash anyway because I rarely use fondant so it worked out that I had some leftover and I think, even though it's kinda tacky it still works...
I don't mind that it's kinda silly haha.
The REO Speedwagon cookie was an absolute disaster but I literally could not find an REO Speedwagon cookie anywhere on the internet so I think I managed to limp through okay.
It went through many phases though as you will soon see. Same with "The Wall" cookie.
I actually ended up doing that one over. You will see all that in the post as well.
Now onto the next phase of this adventure...
I'm actually okay with how it turned out considering what I had given myself to work with.
I made up some food coloring water color and was able to make it look semi decent I guess...
The good news is.. it will still taste good..
Now on to the next redo. A successful redo though.
I did have this song stuck in my head for 2 days straight though.
All bagged up and boxed up. I had to take an extra picture to get the entire sets.
June was a pretty crazy month considering I did Jaxon's cupcakes, a small set of cookies for hubby's niece, a small set of cookies for hubby's gramma and 2 sets each for my dad and step dad. I had a BUSY month of cookie making and decorating. Packing and sending is always my least favorite part so I get it done immediately.
I was boxing them up forgetting that I try to get pictures of the sets and sometimes I like to wait until the morning to get good sunlight.
Anyway I didn't realize I didn't have pictures of the full sets.
But it was a fun set and I think it went well!
I probably won't mail any cookies during the summer months.. not only is it more difficult to make cookies in this heat and humidity but I feel like they also kinda soften up in the boxes and break easier in the mail.
I didn't even want to do this post for a while because I was so irritated that I had cookies break.
Once it gets about 20 degrees cooler I'll start mailing them off to family again.
As for now I'll be making for friends and family locally and I'll be testing out new recipes!
I will definitely be posting them so stay tuned for that!
Thanks for stopping by!
