But back to pumpkins. Here are some pumpkins for another pre-school party. The request was from a co-worker-friend-mom and they couldn't have a face, so this is what I did.
Outline with my favorite glaze. You must visit Cookie Crazie if you want to see the "queen" of glaze decorating. Click HERE if you want to see what I mean, but do come back...please? I will wait for you.
Glaze takes longer to set and dry than royal icing.
Doing alternate sections adds some texture, but I still couldn't resist going back to put more detail...
I added Wilton Orange Sparkling Sugar to the last sections while they were still moist. I did let them dry overnight.
The stems were outlined and flooded with royal icing.
Yes, you heard me. I was needing to pick up the pace, so I (gasp) made both icings be friends. They got along just fine.
A few R.I. vines and a leaf or two and whala...
After EVERYTHING dried, I put in cello bags, tied with a bow and packaged .
My friend said they were enjoyed very much
That's really what counts!
(and that makes me happy)
