Baked with Love, Especially for You

eBrush Design Team: Yolie Burke Week 7 Cycle 2

Happy Friday, this is Yolie, how do you like your sugar cookies with coffee or milk?

I want to start of by saying I'm not a baker, but I am enjoying learning how to bake cakes and cookies. I baked sugar cookies from a package, not from scratch simply because I'm not there yet.  I did however make the cookie glaze from scratch using this recipe here.  I learned that icing and glaze are two different things. I also know why sifting confectioner's sugar or flour is so important in baking.

I used Clear Vanilla by Wilton and blue food coloring.    I eBrushed the butterfly cookies using the Siphon adaptor and Latina Crafter's stencils, our sponsor this month. I placed the wand on the cradle to assist with alignment.
I was able to use the stencils three times before the food coloring seeped on the backside.  I took a paper towel to clean them and used them again before washing.
These stencils will be used for baking only.  I have another set of stencils coming my way to use with paints and such.  Hand wash the stencils and air dry or use a lint-free cloth to dry.  You don't want any lint particles sticking on your glaze.

Here they are! Yummy sugar cookies!  The slightly brown cookies are good for dunkin'!

"Baked with Love, Especially for You" 
The pinwheel and sack were included in Latina Crafter's May Craft Kit.  I lined the cookie sack with parchment paper and stacked the ticket and sentiments with LC's stamp set.

I learned that with glazing cookies, it's best to make a batch of glaze a little thicker to outline the cookies before flooding the entire cookie with glaze.  See told you I'm learning.

The cookies were delicious! I had one with my morning coffee, dunked of course, yum!

Thank you for stopping by today and enjoy your weekend.
