Witch Hats and Cauldrons


So...my 4 year old just put a sign on his sister that said, "She is NOT for sale." I thought that was real sweet of him to look after his sister and all. And then she ran over his foot with her little push car. And he changed the sign to say, "She is for sale." He told my husband about this new development and my husband said, "Well, I'd buy her." So my little boy again changed the sign. This time it read, "She is for sale for someone else." You know, just to clear things up. And then he proceeded to sell me my husband for a dollar.

So, basically what I'm saying here is that if I ever sell cookies...I'm not going to make him my front man. But someone else is going to have to tell him. I can't handle the sad face.


Sometimes MOST times, cookies don't turn out quite like I expected. These cookies are a rare exception. The cauldrons are a black cookie to begin with and since they are flat...ha ha ha...I was about to say that I think it makes the bubbles pop. And then I realized how ridiculous that sounds. Let's just say...I kind of like these cookies and we'll call it a day. How's that sound?

Aha its sounds like you got your husband for a good price and your little boy sounds hilarious. The cookies look fantastic, I really love the colours of the witches hats and the bubbles on the cauldrons. .

I love your anecdotes! I love the ribbon on the hat - how did you do this - I mean is it frosting since it looks so thick and shiny - and also do you use purple sugar on the hat too>

First, these cookies are totally fab and I have been thinking of doing cauldron cookies with bubbles every night for the last 2 weeks. Questions for you... Did you let the icing dry on some of the bubbles and then pipe over them for a more 3 dimensional look. Is that your black cookie dough? FYI, I am going to start using black cookie dough for everything now, including princess tiaras ;-) It is difficult to see (my eyes, not your pic) the hat decor. Is that purple sugar? Are stars and ribbon fondant?

Oh, and if it makes you feel better, I used to tell my brother that he was really the neighbor's child and that it was time for him to go home.

Looking forward to your response ;-) Dana

Lorraine and Dana -- I flooded the hats in purple and then sprinkled on purple sanding sugar. I let that dry and then piped on gold colored stars and let those dry. The ribbon around the base and the bow is fondant. After the stars were dry, and the fondant was on, I painted them both with airbrush gold food coloring so they would be the same color. (But, I used a paintbrush NOT an airbrush. I just think that the airbrush golds work better than mixing gold luster with alcohol.)

The cauldrons ARE made with the black cookie dough. And I used some thick, thick royal icing for the bubbles. They only had to dry for about 3-5 minutes before I could pipe some more bubbles on top.

Itz -- Click on the RECIPES tab at the top of the blog for the cookie recipe and the royal icing recipe I use. For the black cookies, I just added a couple drops of black food coloring before I baked them. Super easy!

Meg -- I sent you an email!
