Cookies for P-Dub

It couldn't be helped.  Ree needed a Wrangler cookie.

I wanted to bring Ree a few cookies, so I went through her Flickr stream and picked out some images to print on frosting sheets.  There were only a few thousand that I wanted to print.
Yes, the color is off.  Despite printing out a test page...on regular paper, my frosting sheet images were didn't look quite right. My guess is, in the 30 seconds between the test page and the frosting sheet, the yellow ink tank got clogged.  And wouldn't you know that the day I was making cookies to bring to the PIONEER WOMAN(!), I had no extra frosting sheets.
Curious about edible images? KopyKake has a listing of all of the printers compatible with food coloring ink cartridges.  Be sure to use a NEW printer :).  I have an Epson WorkForce 30.

Once you have the printer, ink and frosting sheets, applying them is easy.  Here is the set up....
 

Format, print and cut.  Remove the images from the paper backing and place directly onto wet royal icing.  As it dries, the edible image will "melt" into the icing.
For a border, I love using a #16 star tip.  For these, I used Gold AmeriColor Food Coloring and when dry, brushed on a little gold luster dust.  I was hoping the border would look like a little frame.

Did you know that Ree has a new book coming out?  It's called Black Heels to Tractor Wheels...and I'm thinking we need a book club....with wine, cheese and cookies!  Who's in?

Along with those, I brought along a few cookies for the cookie class for examples.

There was sanding sugar....

And marbling....

And even a little disco dust....


But, these....these were the ones I couldn't stop giggling over.
 
So much so, that as I headed into the airport on the way to Oklahoma, Mr. E shouted out, "No taking pictures of WRANGLERS!"

  29. All of the cookies are wonderful but I think you may have just started a new trend in decorating with MM's Tooshie Cookie! I'm sure PW and her family got a huge kick out of it. If there is a Cookie Hall of Fame, this one get my vote for induction:)

    I have the printer in my garage, (still in the box and unopened) and all the edible ink cartriges from Kopy Kake, (I hope they don't go bad on me for $75!) are in a drawer in my kitchen... But I am still too intimidated to try.

    Will you come to my ranch to teach me?

    Pretty please!?

  44. You are so talented and creative! Love it! I don't know how you do it. I spent three days in the kitchen making, decorating, packaging snowflake sugar cookies for my sons school Winter concert.
    After the second day I kept asking myself why did I start this.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow, absolutely beautiful! I need to get frosting paper right now.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Have to say that I'm a little bit embarrassed about the amount of time I have spent drooling over your cookies over the past couple of days! Just lovely and darling. Firing up my oven as we speak....!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Count me in for the book club and cookies! Why wait for the book to be published, let's start "practicing" early!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Those are so fun! And sooo pretty! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  49. There could be no better homage to Pioneer Woman! I love the blue tint to the cookies; I think they're beautiful. Your cookies are always amazing, though.

    ReplyDelete
  50. How do you do this disco dust? Brush it on with vodka and dust admixed or mix it into royal icing?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Love the peppermint candies. So clever! :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Those are positively the coolest!! You are so amazing :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Gorgeous decorating! Love the prints on the cookies, but the candy wrapper ones stole my heart.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hi! Sorry for being so totally random, but what's the font that you used in the photos, for 'disco dust' and 'marbling' etc? Thanks! :)
