When I first stumbled upon the decorated cookie I was smitten! Meaghan posts the neatest and cutest ideas… she always inspires!
She was the creator behind the Oreo cakester petits four… one of my favorite ideas of all time. I have made quite a few of these in my day, and loved it more and more every time! (cant wait for Christmas!!!)
Except this time.
I had big ideas.
And not such a grand execution.
I just might have to chalk up this post the the #FAIL pile. (love when Bridget does those, her failures are like what I strive for in success!)
I wanted to make spider petits fours.
I think they ended up being sort of a cross between a box elder bug and a black widow.
Without the red thingy.
To make these I used Oreo Cakesters, fondant, and a little sparkle stuff for the white ones.
I cut out strips of fondant for the legs, placed them over a piece of rolled up paper to dry, and hoped they would in fact dry.
These are after FIVE days of drying, and the legs still did not holdtheirshape. I think I might need to venture out of my safe fondant world and try some gum paste. We'll see.
Heh. I was tryin' I tell ya! Tryin' to make something of these weird spider thingies!
So then I remember I had some cupcakes left over from a charity event so threw a spider on it.
(are you blown away by my mastery of theEnglishlanguage? And that sentence structure… just exquisite!)
Better? Or worse?
Wow. Not so itsy bitsy huh.
I have ONE more Halloween inspired cake that I would love to share, but this week is crazy busy with cookies orders, so I am just hoping like crazy I can get to it. I do not think I can wait one whole year to share. Although I probably should.
I may be out of ideas after that.
