So this is the new project I'm on which has been in my head for a while now but I seem to always not have the energy to put what I think into action, until this week! I just seem to take so long to do things which annoys me as I like to do things properly and I can only do this when my head and body are in sync which is hard to do at the moment =[ My fault to blame entirely!
All of my miraculous ideas seem to seem so much more amazing in my head then when I come to put it into practice?? Does anyone else find this at all or is it just me? I seemed quite isolated and lonely whilst trying to proceed with my baking in question - just me and my mind to rely on; making me sort of question why I started this project in the first place - but I just love to create things, it's just a shame I am often left cooped up in a world of my own. Often left with just me and sometimes my TV in the background which eventually grinds my gears after a while as the same old daytime TV is heard.
Anyway, so the main aim of this was to practice, practice, practice! I have never iced cookies before and I really have found pinterest and blogger inspiring to be shown how to do things properly in order to create something (almost) perfect! So with all this inspiration in place I scrabbled through Google to provide me with images to use as a template for me to cut around with a scalpel from the sugar cookie dough.
Here is precisely where I found my ideas running wild as I begin to think of all the possibilities which included 'Children in need', 'Mental health organisations', 'Tea related items', 'Birds', and many many more...
As this week on the 15th Feb 2013 is 'Children in need' day I felt it was only right to create some sort of pudsey cookie. And so using items recommended on blogs such as squeezy bottles and baking the cookie in the oven on low to allow the icing to dry, here is the final outcome of days of hard work to say the least! haha
|Pudsey bear 2013 Charity cookies - Show us your spots!!|
So here is my first attempt...
|Helping to raise awareness of mental illness|
|A range of birdies... and a bumble bee!|
And here they are all together ...
Thank you for reading this post of my creations as you are the only people to have seen them apart from my nearest and dearest mother, brother and father; I did not have the confidence to go and sell any in the end =[
Your visit has been much appreciated =]
