Alphabet Winner, and a few other things

17 Feb

First of all, Cookie Crazie Pam has a blog post all about yours truly this morning.  If you want to learn a little bit more about me, head on over to her wonderful blog. Sometimes it’s fun to get a little more information about the people we “know” on the internet! 😀  Thanks so much Pam! You are too kind!

Thanks to everyone for your very kind comments about the alphabet cookies! I’m so glad you liked them!! 🙂

A few of you asked how long it took me to do them, and if I already had the frosting made up, etc.  Yes, I did have most of the colors already made. I’ve been decorating a lot of cookies lately, so I had tons of frosting colors already made up, plus a fresh batch of Meringue Powder Buttercream waiting for me on the counter.  The only colors I had to make up on the day I was decorating these were the camouflage greens and the two colors of brown for the camo and the leopard print. Everything else was already made, and I had baked the cookies the day before.  I started decorating when the kids walked out the door to school and had about 4 or 5 left to do by the time they got home. That wasn’t solid decorating time– I have a 3-year-old at home, so we had lunch and various needs to take care of during the day, but it took me a good 6 or 7 hours to get these done. If I did the same set again, it wouldn’t take quite as long, because much of the time was spent thinking, designing, and figuring out how to do it!  Thanks again for your comments! They were fun to do!

Ok, the winner of the Alphabet cookie cutter set is Cat. There were a few Cats who entered. This one has the word calico in her email address, and she said:

I have a 2 year old grandson and if I won the cutters, we would learn the alphabet together through cookies!

Congratulations, Cat! I’ve sent you an email, but if you don’t see it, send me an email at contact at karenscookies dot net.

Thanks to all who entered! I have another giveaway coming right up!  One person said in the comments that her daughter has a bowling tournament coming up… I have just the post for you, Cindie S!

    Karen~Thank you for the opportunity to win these large alpha cutters. I can also use them with fondant and gumpaste for my cakes. I like that they are big. Cat

    How much do you usually multiply your recipe for M.P. Buttercream to have enough for each color?
