Over the years I have made a lot of Easter cookies and I put a recompilation of some of my favorites!

One of the things that I enjoy the most about cookie decorating is how many different designs you can do using the same cookie shape.

If you want to spend several hours in your cookies, you can add a lot of details and use different techniques,  but if you are short in time you want to make a yummy cookie that  still look cute.

Galletas de Arcoiris

No importa cuál técnica utilices para  decorar tus galletas de arcoíris, de cualquier modo se verán muy bonitas. 

En el video de esta semana comparto como decorar una galleta de arcoíris sobre una galleta de forma de nube utilizando tres técnicas diferentes.

En la primera utilizo una paleta de acuarela de pintura comestible para pintar el arcoíris, esta es una técnica muy fácil de usar y es muy buena para niños, ya que no se hace mucho tiradero y los niños disfrutaran mucho decorando sus galletas.

Para la segunda galleta utilice royal icing de consistencia magica en diferentes colores y los puse en una manga pastelera sin duya para que dure mas fácil.  La verdad, utilizando esta técnica las galletas quedan mas bonitas, se tarda uno mas tiempo en hacerlo pero el resultado vale mucho la pena.  Esta foto es la primera galleta que hice de arcoíris hace varios años.

Kah-pee-roh-tah-dah is how you pronounced this beautiful word, that just the sound of it transport me to my mom's kitchen...

CAPIROTADA recipe @www.thecookieouture.com

Growing up in Mexico, lent was a season with a lot of traditions, not only in the religious part, but also in my mom's kitchen.  

Lent food is very unique and there are dishes for all kinds of paletes, I remember some of sisters dislike some of my mom's  lent dishes,  like 'sopa de haba" ( Broad bean soup) or the  "tortas de camarón con nopales" (shrimp cakes with cactus).  So sometimes we all were not very thrill about lent food, but we all were thrill for lent dessert...CAPIROTADA!!

The day before my mom started cooking the pies and sometimes ROMPOPE! Yes, this might sounds weird, but we had to travel "My mom style".  And the food was part of the road trip experience!

Super easy fondant flowers

I love to use flowers to decorate my cookies, I normally made them with royal icing, but for this project I wanted to have a more defined and realistic flower, so I investigate a little bit and found this silicon mold to make flowers, and I could not resist it and order it.

There are several kind of molds, there are some to make HUGE flowers perfect for cakes, but for my project I need something to make tiny, tiny cookies, and I am glad I choose the right size.  You can find it HERE

You can make the fondant or purchase it already made, you just need to be sure that your fondant last good, several people dislike the tase of fondant, so if you are going to add it to a delicious cookie, you don't want the flowers to ruin your tasty cookie. 

This fondant "Fondarific" is a buttercream fondant and taste delicious!

Right after I finished with the first cookie, other ideas came to mind and I am pretty sure the ideas will continue coming, these flowers are so pretty and really make the cookies look very special!

Time for Valentine's Cookies

 Every year I look forward for the time to make Valentine's Day cookies. This year I have some ideas that I can't wait to put in action.

In this post I am sharing with you some Valentine's Day Cookies I had made in the past and will link the videos so that you can see how I made some of them.

I love to use the wet on wet technique to decorate Valentine's Day cookies. I am not sure why I like this decorating technique so much, maybe it's because you can create several designs with not so much effort and the cookies look really cute and yummy!
