First of all... HELLO!!!
Second of all... I have a really extra set to share with you today!!!
Honestly though my sister is kind of a Diva... Some would even say a little extra...
So I feel like it fit her perfectly and it was so much FUN to do!!!
I saw a bunch of "Dirty thirty" sets on Instagram and Pinterest and I HAD to take this opportunity to make a Dirty Thirty set!!
Okay enough chatting let's go check it out!
I see these number/plaque cookies ALL THE TIME and I love them!!
I was so happy to get to create one of my own! (Well for my sister haha)
This is also a Frankencookie just like the 30 and the plaque previously, except this one is just a plaque cut in half.
How I love and hate this rose lol
I was very excited to do a black rose but man what a freaking chore are you kidding me??
Black icing is pretty difficult to achieve even though I use cocoa powder as a base to get me started so it's not as hard as going from straight white but I ramble....... the icing was a tad too thick... so my petals kinda broke and man I was bummed.
Overall I still love it... and I know it's more "natural" this way but I think when you want something to go one way and you get another result it gets difficult to part with your expectations. It's still pretty though and best bet I'll be making more.
Don't you love the little gold splatter? It's an edible gold dust that turns into a paint when mixed with vanilla extract or some like to use a very high content alcohol like Vodka or Everclear.
You can find it HERE through my Amazon Affiliate link! (I will recieve small compensation.)
It can also be mixed into drinks to make a sparkly beverage and it comes in a ton of colors.
I actually have 2 different golds and a silver.
It's always an adventure seeing what photos I actually took once I've finished and the cookies are long gone LOL.
But eh.. at least I got some lol
Again ued watercolor (food coloring gel and vanilla extract) to do the shadowing and also for the wording... usually I pipe or use markers but I got a really cool spooky effect just using a brush. Yup. Definitely my favorite.
I get caught up in the process and sometimes some of these cookies are done before I turn around and think... dang... I didn't get a single picture of that LOL.
But just some candles.. nothing too fancy going on here.
Same with the 30 AF cookie.. I finished that one right at the end in like 10 minutes.
You can probably tell it was a bit cloudy but I still got the sunshine needed to really bring out that BEAUTIFUL PINK that is really impossible to photograph with indoor lighting.
It was so DIVA!! And that pink!!! And the rose... AND......... the coffin....
Look how much more excellent it looks now that you can see how pink the flowers are.
Love this set.
Oh yeah and I've also started adding a little package of sprinkles with some of my sets.
I think it's a nice little touch... for your birthday ice cream or cake or brownies or whatever idk...
But I thought it was a cute idea... who doesn't love a specialized bag of sprinkles???
More to come!
