Well, I’ve finally managed to get up my second post in one week…something that I haven’t achieved in a while! As I said in the last post I recently did a huge cookie order for a movie premiere here in Hollywood. The movie was, The American Mall, and it premieres on MTV August 11th. This was quite an exciting order for me since it was 500 cookies and my largest order to date. This was the first time that I tried doing a sugar cookie with a printer on image too. This is definitely a cool technique that I have wanted to try for a while. I have lots of ideas for future cookies and can’t wait to share them with you! But for now, here are some photos of the LONG process…500 sounds like a large number until you actually produce and decorate them and then the number seems even larger!!!
Here are some photos of the process so you can get an idea of how the cookies were made. Hopefully within this next month I will be making a video on sugar cookies with all my tips and techniques, so if you don’t understand everything right now hold on and you will!
Now for the edible frosting sheets. First I printed the custom logos on the frosting sheets and then all 500 have to be hand cut to have the logo fit just right on the custom cookies.
Then I adhered the frosting sheets while the cookies were still a little wet and finally piped a border of royal icing on the edges and dipped them in sugar.
And that was just one shot of one of the boxes full of cookies…believe me when I say that there were a lot of cookies!
