a request from a friend for engagement party cookies came through this week that gave me the perfect excuse to bust these little canisters out:
now, we all know that i'm not much of a drinker, yes? so the only vodka i had in the house was...this.
muahahahaha. at least it smelled good as i worked with it. i dumped a little luster dust in, poured some vodka in, and mixed it in.
but then i thought of something else i'd picked up for this project:
it's basically spray paint for food. i thought it might be an easy way to add some shine to the engagement ring cookies i was making. except that i tested it out on a reject cookie and found that it was too difficult to control. no bueno, since i wasn't trying to paint the whole cookie, just part of it.
poop. so it was back to the silver vodka and a paintbrush after all. when I tried it out on the first cookie, i was still less than pleased with the results. it may have looked better after drying, but i didn't want to take my chances.
so i took some of that disco dust and a dry brush and added some serious bling. i'm not even kidding here - look at this thing!
i really hope she likes these. it wasn't as difficult to do as i'd imagined, but then again i only had a dozen to do. any more than that and this story might have a different ending. heh.
