Alright, if we are talking about making real, edible sugar cookies, I just can NOT do it. Sugar cookies are the one cookie I am completely incapable of making. No matter the recipe, no matter what I do, I just can’t seem to get them right. The dough always, always, ALWAYS turns into a far too sticky mess (even after hours in the fridge) that I end up trying to remedy by adding extra flour…and then they just taste like flour. Bleck. I’ll leave those to the more talented people in my life.
Now, polymer clay sugar cookies? I can do that! Not as amazing as others out there, but I do like making them. Today, after thinking about it a bit, I decided to mix up some clay to get the fluffier looking sugar cookies I have always wished I could make. And you know something? I think I got it. I ended up making a charm perfect for a necklace, and will probably end up making a bunch more.
Also on that note, with Christmas approaching rather quickly, I was thinking about hosting a giveaway. I’m planning on a couple winners receiving a couple of cute sugar cookie charms to keep, or to give as gifts for the holidays.
I would suppose it would depend completely on the level of interest. What do you think?
Instead of making a whole new post for these, I decided to just add them to this post. The ‘sugar cookies’ I finished off tonight:
The snow globe one is sort of the clay 2-D version of this amazing sugar cookie from a blog called Myranda’s Sweet Treats: http://myrandas-sweet-treats.blogspot.com/2013/10/christmas-cookie-gifts-3d-snowglobe.html
How amazing is that?! I can’t even make a regular sugar cookie, and this talented person is able to make one that looks like an actual snow globe? *face desk* I’ll stick with clay, most certainly.
I am going to TRY to recreate her sugar cookie completely in clay, but thought this would be a simplified version to finish off tonight. I’ll tackle the more difficult (and smaller version) tomorrow or so.
Well, ignore my rambling, I’m just feeling tired. Have a great night everyone!
So, after browsing around on the webs for other polymer clay snow globe cookies, I found this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sweetcherrydesigns/6427293961/
Obviously they created the original, though I do swear I unwittingly copied them. *face desk* Well, I hope they don’t mind too much, I don’t plan on selling it anyhow. They have an Etsy shop, if you care to purchase one of these for yourself. Their work is gorgeous. http://www.etsy.com/shop/SweetCherryShop?ref=l2-shopheader-name
Now excuse me while I slunk off into a deep hole and scold myself for not researching BEFORE basically stealing someone’s beautiful work. ;_;
