Zombies seem to be everywhere these days. Could it be because Halloween is in a couple days? Possibly, but it seems as though zombies dominate all areas of media throughout the year. My husband’s favorite show is Walking Dead. All four of my kids love zombie video games. I happen to have love zombie movies. One of my favorite all time movies is I Am Legend and I really enjoyed the latest zombie big pic, World War Z. On my retail website (Country Kitchen SweetArt) “zombie” is currently one of the top search terms. These cute, not scary, zombie cookies are perfect for celebrating the undead! They are baked using cookie cutters from FRED. Order them here, then decorated with run sugar.
I had a ton of fun writing this book. I was fortunate to have many of my friends and family willing to participate with their kids. I also had all four of my kids in the book. Even though my older boys were nearly 16, they agreed to be part of the book. Dan Brand was once again the photographer and did an amazing job photographing the kids and projects. He has quite a way with kids! Two of his own beautiful girls are in the book. The book contains a couple hundred photos, but Dan took thousands! I’ll post some of my favorites that didn’t make the book soon.
I have several designs of Cupcake and Cookie Texture Sheet Sets coming out early next year. The sets will include mats with designs for cupcakes and round cookies. Each set will include three different designs. These sheets will make decorating easy! The sample below is from my Whimsy Floral set. Other sets will be Classic Floral, Geometric, Scrolls, and two Christmas sets.
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.

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.
