Hi guys! Just wanted to share some of the techniques and inspiration I used to create my Fall Fairies! . I spent a lot of time researching gingerbread recipes this past summer. I'll be posting the recipe I use soon. Feel free to share it. For 3D Gingerbread construction, I like to use a very strong cookie. In this video I am tapping it with my nail so you can see just how strong this cookie is! The last pic is my inspiration for my #cookiecon2018#suagarshow entry. . I also want to thank some very special people: 1.) Thank you Sidney Galpern for being my first sponsor EVER! I am truly so grateful for your support and generosity. I discovered a technique and use @simicakes1 isomalt to glue my 3D pieces together. Someone asked if I hot glue my pieces and the answer is NO 😂! It's clear isomalt! I'll post more about this technique soon! 2.) Thank you @youcancallmesweetie for taking me under your wing and being both a mentor and friend to me. I'm a #sweetieacademy student for life. I used Sandy's painting technique for my Fairies, the wood grain window panes and her fondant sunflowers. Sandy's hand painting class is my absolute fave class ever. 3.) Thank you to Cookie Queen @juliamusher for all you do for the cookie community. I'm a #cookieconnection member and I urge everyone to sign up (it's free!). I learned how to create curved gingerbread pieces through her YouTube tutorials (also free!).
