Where to start, though?
Well, just a quick one for today - before I pack up the Mexican Cookies and send them on their way.
I normally don't accept orders, but occasionally give in to a request - especially if it's a cookie project that I've been wanting an excuse to do anyway!
So, in the middle of all the Xmas class preparations I got a call for 2 dozen Mexican themed cookies. I couldn't say no to that! I immediately knew what colours I'd use - and when I have a great selection of colours in mind, I just can't wait to get going.
As for the other cookies, I just used what I already have with a bit if tweaking:
For the chilli - a carrot cutter from an Easter set, with some minor amputations....
And for the Sun - a star cutter with the spokes pinched into shape.
The colours for this project were:
Egg yolk yellow
Leaf green and avocado blend
Red red and super red blend
Teal and electric blue blend
(All gel colours).
Their brightness certainly cheered me up!
|All wrapped up.|
See you soon.
