A Three-Year-Old’s Frozen Fiesta

This week I have more cookies for you, but this time with fun tools for flair. These Frozen-themed cookies were my first decorated using my new airbrush system! I received my airbrush system for Christmas, and the entire system can be found here (non-affiliate link). I was worried that the machine would be complicated to use, but I found that the most difficult part of using it seems to be getting the parts thoroughly clean after use. If you’re interested in working with one of these, I’d be happy to share my experiences.

But! On to the cookies!! These turned out so. Cute!! My client needed to stay within my Simple Complexity tier pricing for budget reasons, but she wanted to have Elsa and Anna well represented in the cookies. Characters aren’t easy. They take a great deal of time and effort to get to look right, so I have to price them in my Medium Complexity tier. I came across an idea on Pinterest to represent the characters’ dresses on a heart-shaped cookie, and my client loved the idea. Each design strongly represents Elsa and Anna without having to get into the complexity of doing their faces.

Elsa and Anna’s dresses were brushed with silver and gold luster dust, and I tried to give Elsa’s dress the shimmer of sequins, like she has in the movies. I got to use my airbrush to add  dimensional color to the snowflakes, and stenciled snowflakes onto the 3’s and, erm, snowflakes. I pulled in extra purple so the cookies would match the client’s cake.

I loved the overall effect of the cookies and the client was ecstatic! Which one is your favorite?

Thanks for reading!
