DARING BAKERS: DECORATED SUGAR COOKIES


The September 2010 Daring Bakers' challenge was hosted by Mandy of "What the Fruitcake?!" Mandy challenged everyone to make Decorated Sugar Cookies based on recipes from Peggy Porschen and The Joy of Baking.

The theme Mandy gave for the cookie decoration was September. Meaning: "Whatever happens in your life in September, that's what I'd like your cookies to be about". So with that definition we were practically given free rein to design our sugar cookies. The recipe for the cookies and royal icing and some tips for decorating are found on Mandy's blog here.

What do my cookies then have to do with the rainy autumn month? Well, not that much. I had planned to make some decorated cookies in the near future, since it's been a while since I made these, these or these cookies. Then I read about this month's DB challenge. And as I was supposed to bake something for the girls' kindergarten for next Thursday, I thought to kill the two birds with one stone. And this is what I ended up with:






ENG-FIN:
Olin kelannut jo pitkään tekeväni pikeerillä koristeltuja pikkuleipiä lähitulevaisuudessa, kun edellisistä on jo vierähtänyt tovi (eli näistä, näistä ja näistä). Juuri sopivasti oli syyskuun Daring Bakers -haaste juuri tätä. Tyttöjen päiväkodin torstaiseen pullapäivään olin myös lupautunut leipojaksi, joten kaikki kärpäset yhdellä iskulla.

  7. Thanks for your comments everyone! It was my first attempt with the brush embroidery technique, but I think I pulled off a few nice ones.

    Merituuli: Mustakin niistä tuli hauskoja, varsinkin noista missä oli valkoista ja tummempaa pinkkiä. Ja oli paljon nopeampia väsätäkin kuin muut.
