More like, I have to post this before Christmas
Thanksgiving time was BUSY. Like, can’t think straight busy. But in this post I’m just going to be showing you the Thanksgiving-y stuff I made for an order, and for my own family’s get together celebration.
The Thanksgiving order was for turkey cookies. Normally when you see turkey decorated cookies, I feel like they all seem kind of awkward/childish/messy/funny. I dunno, it’s hard to make a turkey cute or elegant or modern looking. Nevertheless, I pressed on, and decided to go for what I thought would be a fun design, that wouldn’t be too childish. Here’s what I came up with.
Did anyone notice the cookie drumstick I stuck in there?
I think the turkeys in profile were my favorite. I opted for more realistic colors but also wanted to add a little sparkle…so I literally painted on edible glitter. Thanksgiving needed some jazzing up!
Next up, we had my dessert for our family’s thanksgiving. Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin pie. So when I was asked to make a pie, I decided to fudge it a little and make a not-so-pumpkin-pie not-so-pumpkin-cheesecake, but something in between. I called it a tart, but I’m pretty sure that’s totally wrong. And even though this nameless dessert was gluten free, it was a total hit!
I decided to add the “Thanks” to the top, as it needed a little pop. I made the template out of a couple 3X5 cards and just cut out the word, after placing the template on top of the tart thing I sprinkled on some cinnamon sugar. Eventually the cinnamon I used for the design sunk in and evened out in color.
A yummy thanksgiving was had by all.
