Have You Filed Your Taxes Yet?

4.08.2010

These cookies went out to some stressed out and soon to be exhausted accountants who are punching in those last minute taxes...



The piggy bank, calculator, money bag and dollar bills were made using a technique called "royal icing runouts" or "floodwork"...basically - taking any picture printed on a piece of paper, covering it in waxed paper, and tracing the outlines with royal icing...let it dry and plop it on a wet, freshly flooded cookie. Again, a tutorial is forthcoming when I can pull my act together. In the meantime, JFGI (just friggin Google it) - that's how I learned! ;)



Have you turned in your taxes? You have one week left!!

Got 'em! And they look just as amazing in person. Thanks so much for being my left-side of my brain. :) Seriously...piggy banks? I never would have come up with that one. I can't wait to deliver them!

These are great - I did a Google Search (and I love JFGI, by the way) and found your site and cookies. Each one of them is adorable. :)
