May the Fourth y Cinco

It just occurred to me that May the Fourth….or Star Wars Day… is ALWAYS right next to Cinco de Mayo.  So these cookies were the natural result. I have been up to my eyeballs in cookies, but most of them were top secret, so without cookies to post I feel like I haven’t been cookie-ing…

Chicken and Egg Pysanky

When I was first starting out, one of the first things I did was this set of Pysanky eggs. I did it as a decorating party, and spent two weeks planning my designs, and about six hours mixing icing and flooding cookies for me and my friends. And about an hour and a half to…

Fun with Cookie Toys

Part of being “The Cookie Architect” is that I have a tendency to do elaborate, over the top, time consuming cookie projects.  You knew that about me, right?  I think of those projects as my “real cookies.” But do I let these time consuming projects keep me from making other cookie projects that pop in…

Team Cookie: Cookie Con Design Seminar EDIT: CLASS FULL

I can’t tell you how excited and honored I am to be part of the next Cookie Con, taking place in September 2015 in Salt Lake City.  I went last year and couldn’t have had more fun meeting all my cookie friends and checking out the cookie happenings!  Last year, there were only class offerings during…

Valentine’s Day Part 3: Sacred Hearts

These last few red and white cookie sets were all done very spontaneously.  Typically, I draw inspiration from a number of places, and do drawings, and fuss and ponder.  But I had a mountain of icing, and “needed” to try some peanut butter cookies.  So that’s why I’m coming up with these quick, one inspiration…

Valentine’s Day Cookies Part One: You Make Me Quiver

Well, I never really got to make Christmas cookies, and that meant I had a lot of ideas and holiday cookies pent up inside apparently. Because I have made three different sets of Valentine’s Day Cookies (and counting) and it’s V-day today! For this first set, I had some leftover icing in interesting colors from…
