Today I had posted these blossoms on Jill FCS' wall as my contribution to her share theme of "understated artistry". She was looking for cookies where the number of colors and techniques were limited but the cookier still pulled off a beautiful cookie.
I was overwhelmed with wonderful comments and likes for these simple blossoms. Then there was talk of a tutorial within those comments. So I had to make a choice: laundry or make a video tutorial. I can hear the Cookie Widower now fussing at the offspring about turning their socks right side out. Love that man!
So here is my completely non-professional video of how to make my little blossom. Try to ignore the hum of my commercial refrigerator in the background. Boy that thing is loud!
Looking back at my purple ones, it looks like I did slightly smaller petals in between the bigger ones, since I had used a flower shaped cookie. The idea is still the same as what I had demonstrated in the video.
It was fun doing that little video! Kind of reminiscent of my old teaching days. So what do you think- would you like to see more videos?
I'm Amy. Wife, Mom, former science teacher- and now full time cookie baker on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Pull up a chair and we'll create! I'll bring the coffee- maybe Mike (The Cookie Widower) will make it for us.
