Christmas Cookies 2016
It's been a while since I've posted. I've been busy with things other than cookie decorating. I made these for my daughter's Christmas party. Polar bears, snowflakes, and Christmas trees. I mixed the green with 3 parts violet, 2 parts lemon yellow, and 1 part leaf green (AmeriColor). I added a little the green icing to the red, yellow and blue to make color palette match.

One more daughter with a birthday ... an early July summer birthday ... but she wanted cookies to share with her class too, of course. I'm glad her teacher didn't mind accommodating a last minute request! Giraffes are her favorite animal. I've made giraffe cookies before but used different cookies cutter.

Snowy Owl Cookies
My second youngest daughter turned six recently and she loves owls. She has a white owl stuffed animal that she sleeps with every nights and she wanted her cookies to look just like this. That made it a bit easier for me since these owls didn't require a lot of color mixing. These cookies were fairly simple to make.
I own an owl cookie cutter but it's for Halloween and it's wearing a witch's hat. Rather than modify 24 cookies by cutting off the hats before I baked them (these were for her Kindergarten class), I went to Pinterest for inspiration and saw that a tulip cookie cutter made a perfect owl shape. Fortunately, I already owned one of these. All I needed to do was outline and flood the tulip-shaped cookie in white. I let them dry overnight. And then I added the details. I only needed to mix yellow and black icing for the eyes, beak, and feet. There wasn't that much to these.
