Ice Cream & Coo-Keys

Because I can't think of two things that are more closely related.  Ha ha.

I got a few new cookie cutters a while ago, baked away and then froze them until I had the time to decorate.  I took these two designs out yesterday and went for it.  For the ice cream I used sanding sugar for both the flooding and then the finishing outlines too.  It added the depth I wanted.  I went with the gold pearl dust on the keys to make them sparkle; I tried to take a sunny picture to show that.  I'm not 100% sure what events I'd use the keys for, maybe a housewarming or moving party, but they were fun to make!

More Mario

The more I make Mario cookies, the more designs I aim to make.  The great thing about making cookies for this theme is that the designs are simple and easy to decorate.  A few star-shaped cookies among plain squares and circles, and you're good to go.  As long as you go bright and bold, you can't go wrong!
