Halloween Baby Shower Cookies by EZtheBakingOwl

Halloween Baby Shower

Everywhere I look people are having babies. Some people are even having second babies! The whole thing is crazy but I guess it’s the natural progression from the “everyone is getting married” comment I made a few years ago. I guess both trends make sense since I’m in my very late twenties and naturally so are most of my friends… and their friends, and so on.

Batty Halloween Cookies

I love Halloween cookie cutters. I buy just about every Halloween cutter I can get my hands on because with big plans for all the wonderful cookies I’m going to make. Then October rolls around and I use a pumpkin and maybe two or three others. So this year I made a conscious effort to use some cutters I haven’t already used. This is the assortment I pulled out:  Continue reading

Royal Icing: Recipe and Instructions

Like most cookie decorators, I started out with a tried a true royal icing recipe I found on the internet. I went through about four bags of powdered sugar before I got it right. Even then it was hit or miss for a while and I always had to be sure to keep extra powdered sugar around to start over with because once you ruin royal icing, there’s no going back. Now that I’ve been doing this for a while, the recipe I use is one that has been modified to suit my needs and as I’ll explain later, my climate.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Stenciled Yoga Cookies

When Yoga Meets Cookies

As you may have figured out by now, I have a lot of siblings. Including me, there are six of us. Between the six of us there are a lot of different interests so it’s nice when two of them can come together like this. My sister Linda is kind of crazy about yoga. You know, the way I’m crazy about decorating cookies and cakes. Since the first time I decorated a cake (oh was it bad!) I have been obsessed and i’m pretty sure that my sister has been obsessed with yoga since her first downward dog. Linda has been working toward becoming a certified yoga instructor (free lessons for me!) and at this point she’s asked me to make cookies to share with her fellow yogis several times. This platter is my favorite version of yoga cookies so I’ll share with you how I made them. Continue reading
