Special Crosses

While at CookieCon, I had the pleasure of meeting and becoming friendly with one of the presenters. Her name is Lisa from and she is the sweetest, nicest, sweetest person ever ... I think I said sweetest already. 

Lisa gave an amazing presentation about using an airbrush machine for cookies. I know for a fact that many women in the room, like me, were completely intimidated by the airbrush machine, but Lisa's presentation was user friendly and completely amazing and took the fear right out of making beautiful cookies with this machine and this technique. 

She was sweet enough to, literally, hang out with us gals for most of the evening talking about cookie theology (if that actually exists) and how we, as cookie artists, need to value our hard work.  Her information was so helpful and it made me feel better knowing that we all started in the same place when it comes to decorating.

I told you she was amazing, right? 

When I got home, I was lucky enough to find a SUPER sale online for a Duff airbrush. I ordered it and was very excited to start using it. 


Now to the story about the Cross Cookies. My sister and my brother-in-law dedicated my niece and nephew, to their church, the Sunday after Thanksgiving. It was a beautiful ceremony and my niece and nephew looked beautiful. As a special addition, I made cookies in the shape of the cross and I airbrushed the pink and sky blue Amerimist colors on them when the cookies dried. 

I love the affect the airbrush made on the cookies. 

 I'm so grateful to have been present for Lisa's airbrush demo and for having the opportunity to use an airbrush machine at CookieCon. Her information was helpful and completely invaluable. She was patient with us and allowed me to ask a million questions.

Thanks Lisa!!!!!
