I wasn't expecting to be the only person on the trail all morning. The wildflowers must be peaking. I've never seen so much variety and color on this trail.
I don't have a mountain cookie cutter, so I used a crown cutter and a pizza cutter. The 3rd peak on the cookie is the bottom part of an ice cream cone cutter.
Before decorating, I used Photoshop to quickly paint the idea I had for the cookie.
I used a darker green for the mountain in the background and frosted that part first:
More of the wildflowers on my hike this morning:
Pipe the C by outlining first and then filling.
Filling in the middle of the C with more candy melt and yellow sanding sugar:
Frost a white strip across the center of the flag. I also dunked the white frosted area in sanding sugar. Frost blue on the top and bottom. Place Cs.
Template for the globe cookies using green candy melts:
Frost the round cookies with blue frosting and place candy melt globe pieces.
I placed a red candy melt heart over Colorado:
I frosted the United State cookies a tan color as the base and then piped different color roadways to look like a road map. Also placed a small candy melt heart on Colorado.
In all of the world...
...across the entire United States...
...where the state flag waves blue, white, red & yellow...
...my heart belongs in the mountains of Colorado.
This cookie set was for play. It has been a while since I made a cookie set. I don't bake as much during the summer because there are too many trails to explore.Colorado Flag tie dye shirts we made early this summer.
