These cookies were so exciting to make! It was definitely an iterative process. I started by printing off a sheet of Oscar images and taping them onto a cookie sheet. I taped parchment paper over the sheet of images and began piping over the images with white royal icing. These were left to dry and harden overnight.
When I was sure they were dry, I hit the bottle of Ever Clear to make the glittery paint to get Oscar ready for Oscar night!
|I mixed just a bit of EverClear and Wilton Pearl Dust. |
I experimented with both bronze and gold to make the shimmer.
|Oscar gets bling-ed up!|
I made the cookies at the same time I made the cookies for Nick's birthday. I love the elegance of the scalloped edge cookie cutter. I piped a black border using a tip 1.
|My hand is always so shaky, but I'm getting better at working quickly!|
I gently placed Oscar onto the wet icing and smoothed him down just a tidge.
I added a few extra dots for a little more design.
And there you have it! All dressed and ready to go to the red carpet!
