And the Academy Award goes to...

The Oscars are coming to your TV sets this Sunday, and I have been working on cookie versions of a few nominated films.  Unfortunately for me, I haven't seen ANY of the films I have depicted in cookie form, so most are based on images I've scoured over the Internet.  All the sugar cookies are royal icing-based and painted with edible icing colours and food writer pens.

And the nominees are...
127 Hours

Black Swan


The Fighter

The King's Speech

The Social Network

Toy Story 3

True Grit

... we'll find out on Sunday!

Sample Cookies

I made these sugar cookies for a friend as a surprise.  I hope she'll enjoy them and they remain intact in the mail.  Note that I've placed them in the traditional order of events. :)

Happy Family Day!

Owen's First Birthday

This past Saturday was when my baby turned 1 year old!  He likes the children's program "In the Night Garden..." so I decided to make Igglepiggle to put on his cake.  To cover the cake, I made marshmallow fondant.  This was the first time I made it from scratch, since I've read many reviews of how much better it tasted versus traditional fondant.  It was really sweet and tasted different since I put a little orange oil in it.  The cake had 3 layers: lemon, chocolate, and lemon; orange-flavoured buttercream in between each one.

Design inspired by Andrea Sullivan from Andrea's SweetCakes

I also made little chocolate cookies with buttercream icing and fondant flowers.

Happy Chinese New Year!

In honour of Chinese New Year, I added almond extract to both the sugar cookie and royal icing.  Floodwork needs to dry overnight, so I was barely able to fulfill this order placed two days ago (for some reason the red took a long time to dry).  If you need to place an order, keep in mind to give advance notice to receive it in time (preferably one week plus your method of applicable shipping).
