Lightly Decorated Floral Cookies

Purple has been very popular this year.  For these purple floral lovelies I was asked to go easy on the icing.  So how do you decorate cookies without icing?  Well, I decided to paint the food coloring directly on the cookies.  For the crackle effect, I used corn starch mixed with food coloring.  Royal icing was only used for piping details (font and floral).    This is one of my favorites and with so little icing!!!!!

Beetle Cake

 

This Beetle cake was made start to finish (yes, including baking) in one evening.  I was given the wrong date (hey, people make mistakes), but this was for one of my very favorite little guys so....I stayed up all night and made this sorta cute, sorta creepy edible bug.  I had to stray from my original plan a bit, but I think he came out ok in the end.  The body was covered in black fondant and hand painted with edible gold luster dust mixed with food coloring to give the shiny color effect.  I used a brush because I currently don't own an airbrush, but I'm sure you could achieve some really amazing color effects using one.
