Throughout the year I’ve been incredibly busy with my web design business, Fourth Floor Interactive, and have subsequently neglected not only my Baking and Decorating website but actual baking and decorating as well. But this Easter, with a trip to my parents’ house and time spent with my family, I was determined to keep my laptop packed away and instead pull out my WIlton supplies to create some fun springtime cookies…

Melted Snowmen: The Finale

Posted by Jen Chiappisi on Saturday, January 23rd, 2010 | Read the Rest

I finally finished my cookie decorating. This week got a little more hectic than planned and I had less time to play with my baking and decorating pieces in the evenings than I would liked. But I suppose, better late than never. Plus, while slightly-old cookies are still great to decorate, it makes them less tempting to devour them all after the decorating is done.

Okay, so maybe not ‘fields’ per say, but I did finish seven lovely yellow Wilton Roses per the Wilton Cake Decorating Book 1. I have to be honest, when I started the roses, making the triangle-esq shaped bud that goes under them, I really thought that I am simply not a flower-creator. They just were not looking correct. The book shows them to be beautiful cone-shaped things and mine looked more like the tips of baby bottles with a long snout at the top.

Sugar Cookies + Buttercream Icing

Posted by Jen Chiappisi on Saturday, January 2nd, 2010 | Read the Rest

My sugar cookie decorating didn’t go quite as planned. When attempting to draw lines around the outer rim of the cookies and spread white buttercream icing cleanly within the line it didn’t work well. The lines went fairly well, but then when I would take my frosting spatula and go next to them, it would often pull them off completely.
