I just finished some cookies for the baby gender reveal party for Jessica.
I got a great cookie tutorial from Craftsy.com. They have a nice video that explains step by step, the only way I could make decent cookies.
My friend Leslie came up with the idea of the cookies and I wish I could make a more detailed design. I discovered I can only make dots or straight lines. That is why I came up with this design, I called it "for the pipping bag challenged".
It is just so exciting to wait for a new baby to come.
And to have a whole party to reveal the gender of the baby, that makes even more special.
Can't wait to meet you baby girl, or boy.
My friend Leslie is organizing a Baby Gender Reveal Party for her friend Jessica, and they decided to have baby shoes on top.
Since I have worked with chocolate clay before, I decided to give it a try.
First I had to make the prototype in paper, to look at the dimensions and proportions.
Once I had the approximate sizes of all the pieces, I made the chocolate clay. I used the recipe from Wilton's website: click here for recipe.
After the clay was ready to be used, it was very hard and not malleable. After 10 seconds in the microwave, It was softer and ready.
I used all kinds of utensils to cut the pieces: pizza cutter, knife, cookie cutters, rolling pin and straws.
Then putting the pieces together, I noticed they stick to each other if they are warm. But I had to place a piece of aluminum foil, so the front of the shoe would not collapse. After refrigerated I could remove the foil, because the whole pice gets harder.
And I finished making a pink and a blue pair of shoes.
I hope they will look nice on top of the cake.
