Who doesn't love Baymax? He is a big softie from Big Hero 6 whom we all adore! :) These cookies were one of the simplest and easiest cookies we have made. Made with 3 colour icing: white, black & red.
If anyone wants to try making decorated cookies for the first time, I would highly recommend trying out these Baymax cookies :)
Let start with the simplest one, the white face with black eyes. All you need to do is flood an oval shaped cookie with white icing and then add the 2 black dots for his eyes and join it in the middle with black line
Next is the full body Baymax. This one has a slighty more step process but reasonably simple. We started with his arms and his legs, while the white icing is still wet add light grey icing on his arms, upper legs and bottom feet.
Second step is to add his body and also add grey icing into the side of his body while the white icing is still wet, let it dry for a bit and then add his head.
Last step is to add his eyes, 2 black dots with black icing and connect them with a tiny line and then add his card-slot on the right side of his chest.
Now this red hero Baymax is quite fun to make as i love the eye popping colour on his mask :)
Step 1: Flood the mask area with red icing, we used 15 second consistency as we only want to make 1 batch of red icing (call it lazyness but it saves so much time rather than making 2 different consistency icing :P) Let this dry.
Step 2: Add white flood icing for the middle of the mask eyes area - see picture below.
Step 3: Pipe stiff consistency white icing to outline the mask - see picture below.
Step 4: Add his eyes with black icing.
Simple & easy right? :) our kids loved them and as our quality control at home they have given us their seal of approval. Here is my girl with the cookies :P
And of course my boy had to get in the action of sampling the goodies...he is our taste tester :P
We packaged-up a Baymax gift pack, love that he fits perfectly in our gift box ;-)
Have a great week everyone! Hope the school holidays keep the kids busy and entertained! ;-)
We have been wanting to try making these cookies for a while, and only just managed to find the time to make them now. They are really cute and really fun to make :)
We didn't get a chance to take progress photo of the racoon, but we did managed to take progress photo as tutorial for the rest of the animals.
Let's start with the cute fox, start with cream colour icing on the face, inner ears, chest and tip of the tail. Wait until they dry for a bit and then start adding the orange colour icing - see picture below.
Lastly add the face details (eyes, nose and mouth line) with black icing, and using a stiffer consistency orange icing add the definition lines for his legs. Also depending if you want a girl fox or a boy fox you can add a little pink bow on the ears if you prefer to have a foxy girl ;-)
Now for the owl, this one is super simple. Firstly use the same cream colour icing for the chest area, and let it dry for a bit. Then add the rest of the body as pictured below. Lastly add the details, such as eyes nose and feet. The optional step is to add an outline for her wings with a stiffer consistency grey icing.
For the Porcupine or Hedgehog, start with the face area, little ear and the bottom of his belly & feet. Use the same cream colour icing as the ones for the owl & fox. Then add the brown body and let it dry.
Lastly add the details of the face, the spikes and the outline of its feet.
Here they all are together in a platter :)
We packaged up the little foxy into a gift box as they look great as a mini gift box :)
There you go, we love making these cuties, hopefully these will encourage some of you to try making them ;-) Have a great weekend everyone! :)
We also made another small cookie gift for Mrs. C, she works in the school office and she made sure that the school runs smoothly everyday. The kids might not have a direct involvement with her as she doesn't teach them, but she works hard to ensure the day to day running of the school. So we thought it would be nice to make her a small gift to say that "we really appreciate all you do".
This is what we gave her and eventho its only a small gift she told us that it means a lot to her :)
This is our first attempt at making a flower bouquet, i told my hubby that sometimes flowers can be a waster of money as they wither and die quickly....well this is my kind of flower, the sweet one that we can eat and enjoy :)
Its actually really easy to make as we used a royal icing transfers, which means the red roses were pre-made and ready to use in our container where we keep all our royal icing transfers.
Once we placed all the red roses randomly on top of the cookie, we add a few dots of pink and white and do a little squiggly lines on top to make it look like a flower bud - see picture below.
And lastly add the stems and the leaf randomly to fill the gaps.
Here is what they look like after we packaged them up. I quite like the use of this see thru plastic container. Its just the right size for a small cookie gift pack without costing too much :)
Hope this little gift brings her joy and made her day brighter ;-)
Its the last day of Term 1 at the kid's school today and it happens to be Logan's teacher last day as she is moving away to the UK. So Logan has been asking us to make thank you cookies for his teacher as he has really enjoyed having her as his class teacher for this term.
So we made a very simple set with a new honey cookies recipe, which we just tried out and really loved!
We have posted a tutorial on how to make the stubby pencil in our previous blog post when we made another Teacher's set for their school principal, if you want to check it out you can click HERE.
However this time we took step by step photo tutorial for the crayons and the little roses, which was borrowed from Sugarbelle designs :)
Here is how you make the stubby crayons (similar to what Crayola's crayon looks like).
Very simple, flood the cookie with blue icing, and let it dry. Then add the middle black icing and squiggly lines on top and bottom of the crayons (see picture below).
Something went funky with our blue icing and it went a bit grainy as you can see below....but luckily it works with how crayons really look like, so we leave it as it is :)
For the simple roses, we made it using strawberry cookie cutter as we didn't have any roses cutter. We just cut the tip as we were cutting the dough (sorry i forgot to take a photo of it).
First step is to flood the rose area with red icing and let it dry. Then with a stiff consistency icing, made the swirly rose buds (see photos below), then lastly add the 3 little leaf at the bottom using any leaf tip you have.
That was all, very simple and yet very effective for a thank you cookie set :) Here is the set we have packaged up for Logan's teacher.
Hope Ms. Stephenson will have a wonderful last day at school today! We will miss you and thank you for being such a great teacher :)
We received a special order for a barnyard animal cookies from a lovely lady in New Plymouth :) They own a Jersey Cow farm so she wants some farm animal cookies for her daughter's birthday this weekend. She specifically requested horses, cows, yellow chick and piggies. The cows had to be light brown so that it will look like Jersey cows of course ;-)
We took photo tutorial on how to make the cows, yellow chicks and the piggy, but unfortunately we didn't get a chance to take any photos of the horses as they were done late at night.
Lets start with the cows :)
These cookies are very simple to make, start with outlining the face shape of the cow and fill the face area & the top of the ear area with light brown flood consistency icing and let it dry. When the light brown icing has dried mark off the areas of the cow's spots with edible markers (see picture below).
Next is fill the mouth area and the bottom of the ear with light pink icing, let it dry. Lastly add the details, fill the spots eyes and mouth with chocolate brown icing, and their nose with pink icing.
The pigs are also really easy and simple :) Start off with round pink icing and add 4 little legs at the bottom. Don't forget to also add their cute curly tails and let it dry.
Next add the pig's face and little feet, and let it dry. Lastly add the nose with a slightly darker pink icing and eyes with black icing.
Last one is the yellow chick. Mark off the area of its body and wings. We started with filling the white belly area, then with an outline consistency yellow icing piped the body and wings, then fill it with flood consistency yellow icing, and let it dry. Next step is to pipe the orange colour icing for the feet, and lastly we add the details, such as its beak, eyes and top of the head with red icing.
Just to show you the finished result, these are all the animals together :) We tried making the cow with white spots (bottom right corner) but we liked the chocolate brown spots better :P
That was all, these are very easy, simple and adorable to make, hope this will encourage you to give it a go and try making these cuties. You don't even have to have a specific cookie cutter as you only need to have round cutters, which you can get easily ;-)
We hope these will go down a treat for the Sara's birthday party this weekend!
Well i've been asked to make birthday party favours for one of my girlfriend as her son is turning 3. To be perfectly honest I wasn't expecting to make another batch of Toy Story cookies again after the last one, but i couldnt say no as this one is for Javien's birthday party....i guess the moral of the story is never say never again lol :P
I have posted the tutorial of how to make Buzz and Woody in my last Toy Story cookies blog post, if you missed it you can check it out HERE.
So this time i will show you how to make the green aliens instead :)
So we start by flooding the cookies with white icing. When the icing is dry we draw the outline of the alien shape into the cookie with an edible marker. Then after that, we start with the airbrushing .
This is the part that i haven't been able to take photos of before as its hard to take photos and do the air brushing at the same time....so this time i have acquired assistance from my lovely daughter :)
Prepare your stencil design that you want showing into the cookie and place it on top of the cookie. Then get the airbrush gun and attached it into the compressor and turn it on. Put the airbrush colour into the cup on top of the gun - see the picture below showing you how everything fits together.
We put a 3 drops of yellow airbrush colour and 3 drops of vodka to dillue the colours a bit.
Then press the airbrush button just behind the cup so that it will start spraying the colours into the cookie - see picture below of what it looks like after you have sparyed the colours into the cookie.
Then remove the stencil to show the finished airbrushed result - this is what your cookie will look like :)
NOTE: Make sure you put some tissues or rag clothing underneath so it wont spray into your table or the surface that you are spraying on.
Okay so now that the cookie is ready to be decorated with icing we start with the green icing for the face area and the ears. Leave the eyes area empty so that we can fill it in with white icing later :)
The next step is to pipe the the blue icing for his top and the purple icing for his collar. Also add the green antena and let it dry. Then add the white icing for his eyes, while its still wet add a dot of black icing and a white dot inside for his pupil. The last step is to piped the details of his mouth, ears and eye lids.
There you go....after the cookies are done just need to add packaging and ready for the party :)
We had such a great time at the party, hopefully all the kiddies enjoyed the cookies :)
