Shimmering Springerle Cookies

Our new and oh so fancy Springerle Cookie Molds are in! These molds have a beautiful way of making intricate impressions into cookie dough, fondant, marzipan, chocolate and even paper crafting projects. They also are beautiful on their own and could be hung on a tree or displayed on a plate rack as part of your baking collection.

This darling little lamb mold comes as a double – so you can make 3D lamb shapes for your Easter baskets and as table decorations. The lamb featured in the photo was made from fondant and has been painted with Super Pearl Luster Dust on the body and Black Disco Dust for the nose and legs. We like mixing our luster and disco dust with a small amount of clear vanilla or lemon extract to create a paint. Apply the “paint” with a small craft brush – it’s as simple as that!

Rabbit Couple Springerle Mold featured above with several fun shades of luster dust . 

This cupcake above features a fondant top created using the Detailed Bunny Cookie Mold and our Round Crinkle Cookie Cutter Set to create the fluted edge shape. After pressing your fondant into the mold, cut a circle with one of the crinkle cookie cutters. Then before laying the fondant on top of your cupcakes, ice a layer of frosting to ensure the fondant will stick. Use a set of pink cupcake liners to match!

Happy Hoppity Easter Treats

With Spring and Easter just around the corner (the 1st day of Spring in March 20!!) we wanted to share some fun and easy treat ideas that you can make with the whole family. The Easter Egg Cupcakes featured above are a snap with a few items and will look great on your Easter table. We used a set of Hoppy Times Cupcake Wrappers to dress up ordinary cupcakes. We placed Bright Icing Easter Egg Decorations in the frosting and arranged the cakes on a white cake stand, decorated with the our Picket Fence Cake Stand Wrapper. After adding a bit of green crinkly paper for grass this dessert tray doubles as a colorful centerpiece.

Next we have adorable little bunny treats that easily made with chocolate covered Oreo’s, graham crackers or any other chocolate covered treat. Simply affix Sugar Sweet Bunny decorations to each cookie using a dab of royal icing. Create the feet and tails by piping icing ovals (for the feet) and circles (for the tail) onto a sheet of wax or parchment paper. Let completely set before affixing to the cookie with an additional dab of icing. We placed our cookies on mini doilies to complete the presentation.

Lastly, these marshmallow cupcakes are too cute and simple to not try on your own! We used Ribbons and Bows Cupcake Liners, but any colorful cupcake liner would work well too. Next  you’ll need to decide what color you want your mini marshmallows to be tinted. We used Sapphire Blue Luster Dust to tint our marshmallows…check out are huge collection of luster and sparkle dusts HERE. Sprinkle luster dust onto a piece of parchment paper and lightly roll each marshmallow through dust. Affix marshmallows to cupcake by gently pushing into the frosting to secure. Place a Rabbit and Lamb Pick into each cupcake to complete. Give your lovely treats a little extra height by setting each onto one of our new cupcake stands. These adorable stands are made from recycled paper and can be decorated as you wish to fit with different themes and holidays. Happy Spring baking!
