Easy Embellishments for a Plaque Cookie

Sometimes I plan my cookies down to the very last speck of a detail. And sometimes my plans go awry. And sometimes they are perfect. And sometimes a cookie just happens. I will often make an extra plaque cookie for a set "just in case" I feel like using it. I generally will experiment on these plaque cookies or just "whip something up" real quick. But if we're being completely honest here, without a plan... there's really only a 1 in 7 chance that the plaque cookie makes it any where near human eyes before it's untimely demise.

The "Easter" cookie I made in this set was a hastily whipped up gem that actually turned out to be surprisingly usable. I used a doodling...uh...technique I learned in high school while NOT learning math. (I also learned how to legitimately twirl my pencil. Ask me sometime...I'll show you!) It pretty much happened without even thinking... I was just listening to my husband NOT tell me about his day, (Seriously. Is it so hard to share? I haven't seen anyone over 4 feet tall all day!) and looked down at a finished cookie. But then so many of you asked how I made it... and I actually feel a little uncomfortable showing you...because it really is just doodling and I only feel kind of "meh" about it. But for YOU - the world!

Although I painted the word on the cookie in this video, you could just as easily pipe the word instead. Or use a projector. Or go all absent-minded-doodling on it like I did. Your cookie - your call.


I'm using an empty water brush to dip in the gold airbrush coloring. You can GET ONE HERE.
