Fisher Price Baby Shower cookies
Continuing with my cookie odyssey, I made some cookies for a baby shower this weekend. Actually, I did the cupcakes and these cookie "favors" The cookies took a lot of time to make, but they turned out very cute. I did learn a few things during the making of these cookies. Good, solid, knowledge that I would like to impart upon you, Dear Reader.
First off, Wilton gell coloring is not the best. I had to use a ton of the brown to get a light brown color. I was starting to lose my patience (those of you who know me though, know this is not saying much, lol) I recommend Americolor coloring. I am slowly starting to acquire a color collection. It works great.
Next, time management is an absolute requirement. DUH, right?
Third, never throw away any colors you make after you use them. I made the pink cheeks on the monkeys. Apparently, when I made them, I trapped air in the icing. When they dried, all of them had holes in them from where the air bubble came to the surface and popped, leaving a pock mark or hole. I had to go back over them with a toothpick and left over icing to fill the holes. Thank goodness I didn't throw it away.
Finally, Always check Sweet Sugar Belle's cookie blog for pointers. She does some amazing stuff.
I got my inspiration from the Fisher Price Baby Shower collection.
