Doing Something New!

1 Nov

This morning, I’ve done something that I’ve wanted to do for a very long time, but just never did for one reason or another. Mainly, probably because I thought it would be too hard! But I was surprised how easy it really was!!

I made fancy decorated cookies!

It doesn’t look like much here…

I made my usual sugar cookie dough — it’s the one from the old packages of Butter Flavor Crisco actually!  This time it came out a little more crumbly than usual but I was able to get some cookies cut out!

I used this great sandwich cutter I picked up earlier this year at Disneyland

M-I-C. K-E-Y

My first attempt at icing was a cheat — I used packaged “Cookie Frosting” from Wilton

This is what the bottled stuff looked like fresh out of the bottle…

It soaked into the cookies and took forever to dry — and didn’t give me the look I wanted.

So this morning I started over!  I used Wilton Royal Icing Mix

Kind of cheating but easy-peasy!

The first thing I did was use the “as made” icing to outline the ears.

003

So far so good!

Then I thinned that out and added more black gel (also from Wilton!) And filled in the ears!

004

Starting to get excited!!

Starting to look like a Mouse!

Of course Mickey has to have some pants!!

005

And I finally added some buttons to keep those Mouse pants up!!

006

I’m pretty impressed with the finished project, even though they aren’t perfect, and can’t wait to get home from Wine and Dine to start working on Christmas cookies! And this time, I’ll make an attempt to make my own icing!

008

The final result!! Not too shabby!!
