The Tangled Cookie Collection

I closed my Etsy shop for a little over a week so I could get caught up with all of my orders and take a few days off to rest.  I finished a very busy week, filling my 20 sheet bakers' rack 3 times in 4 days!  That is 20 dozen cookies x 3 = insane amount of work!  I was looking forward to 4 days off, a time to rest and hang out with my kids and cook dinner for a change.  Instead, I got terribly sick the first day of my time off, and spent the rest of the time recovering.  And napping.  I'm feeling much better now, and I am so excited to get back to what I love to do!  I'll start this week with a post about some cute cookies I made for a client for her grand-daughters birthday party.  

I made the tower cookie cutter myself (I've been doing that a lot lately), and used a tiara cookie cutter that I hadn't used before. I loved the dimension that the curly vines gave to the tower, and I hope I captured the charm of the movie.  For the tiara, I piped the design with yellow frosting first, and after it hardened, I applied 2-3 coats of gold glaze.  It's a new product for me, I've always used luster dust in the past, but this is so much better!  I loved the bright yellow gold shimmer.  

I just added this set to my Etsy shop, and I look forward to making it again!
