Wedding Favours: Cats in the Window

I recently had the pleasure of creating a design for wedding favour cookies featuring the bride and groom's two cats. The design needed to include both cats, and room for names and date.

Peacock Feather Cookie Tutorial

I recently had the opportunity to create a set of peacock feather cookies for my step-daughter's wedding. I've wanted to try my hand at these for ages, and thought it would be a doddle. Lovely colours, lots of lustre dust.

A Deep, Dark, Woodfull of Gruffalo Cookies!

I recently had a request to create a small set of Gruffalo cookies. It seemed fairly obvious that I should handpaint the designs after the illustrations for the book, but I wanted to make them a little different, or original somehow.

Elvis on a Biscuit with Really Edible, Really Glittery Glitter!

I absolutely love glitter on cookies. When I first started out, disco dust (and glitters like it, such as this) was still being sold as 'edible' and I happily used it (and ate it) in large quantities. Then The Authorities (in the UK) realised that it was, strictly speaking, not an edible product, as it is not digested and has no nutritional value, and therefore couldn't be sold as such.

How to Pack Cookies for Shipping

It's taken a long time to work out how to pack my cookies so they not only survive in the post, but also create the best impression when they arrive.

Wrapped Parcels: Valentine's Day Cookies for a Man

Not very long ago, I asked my husband Martin to bring two chocolate biscuits back with him from the kitchen. He brought oranges. Quite apart from being a completely unacceptable substitute, just what on earth was he trying to tell me? I eat too many cookies? I should eat more fruit? He'd eaten the biscuits really quickly in the kitchen so he wouldn't have to share them with me? This was very dangerous territory, so close to Valentine's Day.
