Easter cookies - doodling with TruColor

Easter cookies, doodling with TruColor by Tunde Dugantsi

These are real play-cookies. I had some leftover bunny cookies and a butterfly. They were flooded with white icing. I decided to mix some icing with TruColor gel colors and play with them. The mindless doodling was fun and I like the result.

I also had my camera on, if you need to relax:

Egg cookies with needlepoint and TruColor

Egg cookies with needlepoint and TruColor by Tunde Dugantsi

This set is the main project of my Cookie Academy 3 - Needlepoint book and this is what we make during the needlepoint master classes.

It took me some time to edit all the videos and put them on Youtube, but this is the perfect timing right before Easter.

For this set I baked 4 inch egg cookies, using the recipe that has nice smooth surface and painted the cookies with TruColor airbrush shine colors using a paint brush. During the last class we used airbrushes and they turned out amazing too.

Enjoy the videos and make some beautiful cookies for Easter!

Variations for heart boxes

Heart cookie boxes by Tunde Dugantsi

Last weekend, I had the honor to teach a demo for Texas ICES Day of Sharing. I decided to show how to make layered heart boxes for Valentine's Day. This is an easy project, but it looks impressive and can be a great gift.

All you need is 3 sizes of heart cutters. My set has a 4 inch, a 3.5 inch and a 2 inch cutter. I use the big one for the top and the bottom of the box and the two others form the 3 rings that build up the side.

I use Americolor super red gel for the red and I leave the bowl dirty and add white to get pink icing. I pipe with PME #1,5 tip.

See below how the different tops were made.

Heart box and mini cookies made with TruColor pink gel color

Pink TruColor cookie set by Tunde Dugantsi

This set was a gift for a little girl who loves cookies. The heart box is hiding a little surprise for her. The rest of the cookies are small (around 2 inch) because mom does not like her to eat a lot of sweets at a time. I also used the all natural TruColor pink gel food color, what I use for my children's sweets too.

This set would also make a nice Valentine's gift.

Here you can see the videos:
