St. Valentine's Day Cookies
My kiddo's class celebrated Valentine's Day today! She came home with a whole bag full of goodies ... I didn't know she'd be getting a bigger haul for Valentine's Day than Christmas! It's been a long time since I've celebrated this holiday at school ... maybe it's always like this. She got a fairy wand, crayons, stickers, tattoos, and bunches of candy. I felt bad that I spent 2 hard hours making and decorating cookies, only to give each kid just one. I thought everyone was just going to get some generic Disney perforated card! Next year I'll have to up my game.
- gingerbread cookies cut with Wilton heart-shaped cookie cutter set
- covered with marshmallow fondant
- stamped with Milestones Stone Stamps, Victorian Style
- airbrushed with AmeriColor Pearl Sheen
Yesterday we picked up some cheap heart shaped cutters from the grocery store. They worked well enough for my usual gingerbread cookie recipe and fondant. I mixed some red and white food coloring into my leftover blue fondant and got an ok shade of purple.
Several months ago I bought this alphabet set at Michaels from the mosaic section. They are for imprinting messages when making your own stepping stones. This is the Victorian Style set and it worked awesome for my fondant! I can't wait for another excuse to use them.
I busted out my airbrush and compressor to spray the cookies down with pearl sheen. I'm still trying to figure out what I'm doing with my airbrush, but I'm convinced I need a compressor that can handle lower PSI more consistently. Luckily the more sparkles, the better on these kinds of cookies.
Happy Valentine's Day!
