I'm not really sure why I took these pictures I guess it's cool to actually see how big they are and how I do my sketches. Also a pretty cool pic of all the cookies baked.
These were chocolate chip and chocolate.
So simple and so adorable. Loved these little fishing poles.
Idk why it was so hard to photograph but I did do a slight blue watercolor background.
You can kinda see it but it's difficult.
Oh boy lol the first set of transfers. So I did measure them... I definitely did...
I just did a bad job at it hahaha oh well... if there's one thing I'm really getting good at it's improvisation... it just comes with being an artist imo you gotta be ready to go with whatever flow happens sometimes lol and sometimes you make the deers---deer whatever... too big and you gotta chose between antlers and feet....
I chose antlers...
Lucky for me this was during the HUGE snow storm that half the country was experiencing so I decided to go with a snowy look.
Would you have known that wasn't my intention if I didn't tell you??
My guess is probably not... which is fan-freaking-tastic.
These bad boys were fun and I bet they are absolutely delicious because the brown frosting is chocolate... man I can not believe I didn't learn about that trick from DAY 1 because that is the way to go when making any kind of brown to black icing... and it tastes sooo good... I mean I guess it would... it's cocoa powder and powdered sugar lol.
I'm happy with how they came out... little deer tracks...
I used some "watercolor" to make the tracks a bit darker.
Okay well I've reached the point that wet on wet is fun for me to do and not as stressful as when I first started... I do enjoy it now that I've had some experience...
The camo cookies came out cool.
So we're up to my favorite of the set...
The fishys. Oh my goodness... y'all. I didn't know I could paint a bass...
Not only did a paint a bass but I really enjoyed painting the bass...
I decided to use transfers because I was making multiples of the same cookie so I kinda wanted them uniform... then I just "glued" them on and "painted" them.
They all came out a little different. I decided to use different shades of green and yellow.
Really loved these. They were so cool.
Okay fam well lol idk what happened here but somehow I don't have many process photos of the mounted deer or the rifles BUT they were both transfers... so it was very tedious placing them on the wet icing and praying softly that nothing breaks lol
They came out fine though.
The "wooden" part of the cookie was separate icing just the deer was the transfer.
As far as the rifle... the entire thing was a transfer. I attempted to sketch them out and thought ehh maybe I can do them by hand... hahahahah no. That was a no.
I'm too much of a perfectionist... I'm okay with the transfers for these.
It was worth it. Even though they are really agonizing. Everything from waiting for them to dry, to peeling them off the parchment without breaking and then placing them correctly on wet icing... yeah it's a process, but for something like this it was worth it.
Idk why or how but they always look even better once I put them in bags...
I'm excited by this every single time LOL.
That's it for this set!
I hope you enjoyed it!
Something a little different which is normal around here lol
Thanks for visiting!
Stay tuned for more updates! I have a few recipes I'm going to be adding.
Thanks so much!
