Here’s a quick look at some cowboy-ish cookies I made for a baby boy’s shower. Due in December, rockin’ out in 2013!
For the star, I wanted to create those “dimensional” stars you sometimes see on people’s houses. Kind of sets the mood for an all American/western theme. To get the lines right, I drew on the pre-iced cookies with an edible marker.
I intended to use a straight edge, but the lines were so short, it worked to draw them free hand.
For the rocking horse, I was trying to get the look of the horse on the invitation, within the confines of the cutter.
Ultimately, I went for a “Scandinavian Design” kind of ultra modern furniture look. I added the star after the brown icing dried and then added the final brown outline. The shower’s tomorrow. Can’t wait to hear how things went!
