This pumpkin cookie box was created with Nordicware’s 3-D pumpkin pan. The cookie dough was rolled and then formed into the sprayed pan. After the bowl was baked and cooled, I covered it with orange rolled fondant and added rolled fondant accents. The sugar cookies inside the box were iced with run sugar icing. This project was one of ten of my projects that were featured in “1000 ideas for decorating cupcakes, cookies & cakes.” Whenever I need some inspiration, this is my go-to book! It is full of beautiful confectionary projects from around the world.

Owls continue to be a hot theme. Owls are great for birthday themes, graduation or fall. I decorated these owls with bright, vibrant jewel tones to compliment the beautiful colors of fall. These cookies were baked with a chocolate sugar cookie recipe, and decorated with run sugar.
Our basement was just recently finished, so we decided to have a fall party. Luckily the rainy weather cleared in time to give us a beautiful night for a cookout. We served hot dogs and chili, and then had lots of sweets!

This cake was baked in a skeleton pantastic cake pan, and then covered in fondant. The cake board is fondant that has been textured with my texture mat from the floral set. The spiders are hand molded and glittered with disco dust. The chocolate cookies are decorated with fondant. The lettering was created with the cake cricut. Complete instructions for this cake can be found on Country Kitchen’s Website.
My assitant Theresa and I made several treats for a vampire-themed Halloween. I also gotta admit that I am a Twilight fan and am so looking forward to the last movie, part one of Breaking Dawn! I just may need to make some of these treats again for our girls night out at the movies! For instructions on these as well as many other Halloween treats, visit Country Kitchen SweetArt’s website.
Fall is such a great time of the year! With fall comes bonfires, crisp air and Halloween! Halloween always brings back lots of fun childhood memories. I love picking a theme for Halloween parties and figuring out creative treats and snacks to serve to match the theme. This year, I’ve chosen a “Potion and Creepy Things” theme. The instructions for all of these projects can be found on Country Kitchen SweetArt’s website.
