I got a last minute order for
Since they were last minute,
I went with simple designs.
And it got me thinking
Every cookier should have
simple cookie designs in their arsenal.
It is just smart thinking.
Simple cookie designs, that are easy to make.
Require few colors,
Can be created on short notice.
Using colored icing that you have in a
always filled stock pile.
I have learned to keep simple colors on hand at all times.
That way when I get a last minute order...I am prepared,
I can take the order...and I have a happy customer.
I only work in a glaze icing, which stores very well, freezer,
refrigerator, and on the counter at room temperature, for days.
What colors do I keep in stock?
Red (always better the longer it has to develop)
Using those simple colors, you can create great cookies
You can mix them to get different colors.
You can mix in white to lighten
You can mix in black to darken.
The next time you have some free time,
why not create a stockpile of colored icing.
And if you have the time,
create some standard cookie designs.
Designs that you can re-create
Simple designs for me, are cookies that have one color of a base
coat, and simple details.
Add a bit of sanding sugar.
And a simple cookie becomes
"OMG, thank you...I love them" cookies.
So...here is my basic Birthday set.
I can bake as base coat them in one evening.
Wake up the next morning, add details
and deliver in the afternoon.
Start to finish, less then 24 hours.
Simple, yes, but the customer loved them
and remember, THAT is the important thing!
These were for a 10 year old boy celebrating
Need them for a girl, change the colors!
For a baby, soften the colors!
A Teen, go Neon!
Over the hill, Black baby!
