Mmm, Beer!

So, in addition to the bachelorette party cookies I made last week (which I had to remove from Facebook...bummer!), I made these beer cookies for my FIL's (father-in-law) birthday! I wasn't sure HOW to do them, so I just dug in and tried. Started with a brown base, and once it was dried, I brushed some silver luster dust on to give it an "icy" look. Then came the piping. You can tell I don't use a kopykake, because the lines are so shaky! Oh, the things I could create with a kopykake!! ;) I guess they turned out okay. I am definitely my own worst critic. But he liked them a lot, so that's all that matters! Hubby said the mugs remind him of the Simpsons, and I should have written "Duff" across the front. Haha!

PS~sorry for my shadow on the was taken with my phone! And Picnik is NOT saving my edited photos...grrr!

Rough cookie week!

Remember at the beginning, I said I wanted to showcase my success AND failures? Well, this last week was definitely a ROUGH cookie week! *Deep breath* Here we go...

I was asked to do two different sets of cookies for the same school. First is their logo, Delaware Hayes Pacers. These aren't so bad, but I'm not thrilled with them:

Next is an OSU theme. I originally had Block O's in the mix, but the dough spread waaay too much, and they looked like blobs. I really dislike this set. The helmets are abominations! I don't know if they were just being polite or what, but everyone said they loved them. I hope they were sincere!

Next up are bachelorette cookies, and beer! Can't go wrong with those!! Have a great weekend!! :)
