Sweet Valentine's cookies

I have been posting Valentine's cookies every day since February first, well almost every day and I haven't realized how many valentine's cookies designs I have made through the years!

My costumers are a very important part of my business and I am very thankful for all their inspirations and ideas that keeps me motivated to make original cookie designs. 

I recently made some heart and candies cookies
for a Valentine's Day party and here are some pictures for you. 

Tinting red icing always has been a challenge for me, I remember one of my first orders were some red apples and it was so hard to have an even bright red icing. 

Sometimes when you do not mix very well your icing using red food coloring when your cookies dry they may have some darker spots and this will not look very nice.

The quality and the expiration date of your food coloring is something that you' ll have to pay a lot of attention to. 

Some of my favorite brands of gel colors are Chefmasters, Atheco  and Americolor. I love Tulipan red from Chefmasters and the Red Red from Atheco. 

But my secret to achieve a very nice even bright red flooding  icing is to tint firm icing with equal parts of Americolor Deep Pink and  Atheco Red Red, and then when the shade of red is right for you, then adding water to thin out the icing. 

I posted some videos on how to decorate some of these cookies on my Instagram, you can check them out.

Mason jar flower bouquet cookie

Mason Jar Bouquet Cookie

The mason jar cookie cutter is one of the most versatile cookie cutter that you can ever own. You can make so many different cookie designs and you can follow the Mason jar trend in your decorated cookie designs. 

When I have an idea in mind I do not let anything stops me and I try to think out of the box if I do not have what I need at hand. 

Piecing cookie dough is very handy when you don't have the correct cookie cutter and for this cookie I used a mason jar  and a flower cookie cutter.

When you piece the two cookies together you need some egg mix to use as glue, putting the two pieces together. 

Bake and let your cookie cool down, before adding the royal icing. 

I started flooding the cookie with white royal icing and let it dry for couple of hours. 

I tinted leaf green and red red firm royal icing and assembled  two decorating bags with a decorating tip #1 to make the  flower's stems and the roses. 

As a final touch I added a big red bow!

I made this cookie like 3 years ago and I included this cookie in a post for Mother's day cookie ideas, click HERE

Valentine's day banner

I found this Valentine banner cookie cutter set browsing in 
the internet the other day, and I could not resisted to purchased it right away.  It has some cookie cutters
similar to some I already have, but it is about time to replace them,  they are so old and are about to break ( They are like 30 years old, first cookie cutter I purchased back in the day...) post signature
