Every once and a while, cookies turn out EXACTLY like I imagined. That is the case for the cookies in this first picture. I wanted just the right amount of detail and aging to go along with the magic, mystery, and mischief that is Harry Potter.
A little bit of Ivory Americolor, my trusty Rainbow Dust edible ink black pen, a couple of good artist brushes and I was off to the races (or Quidditch?). Loved that I could find the recipe for Polyjuice potion! Is there nothing not to be found with a good Google inquiry?
The birthday girl’s only request for her Harry Potter themed party was to include all the house and Hogwarts crests. Oh and a snitch or Deathly Hallow sign too.
I had never seen the show when I got this birthday party platter order. Several episodes and some research later, I did my best not to be too gore.and.gross without losing the excitement and anticipation of the apocalyptic zombie world (really unbelievable makeup artists and effects).
So my favorite crazy thing on the shows I watched (amongst a LOT of crazy things) was that the mother never knew where her kid was with zombie death lying around every corner. This resulted in my ‘missing poster’ child friendly milk carton. For personalization, I added the birthday boy’s name and his birth date in the UPC symbol. It’s all about the details, baby.
Zombie road sign.
Some clever person thought of this wordplay on the Subway motto. Not me though I wish it was. Perfect in any case.
Michonne was Sean’s favorite character so I had to paint her in warrior stance. This and the barbed wire are examples of ‘watercolor and ink’- my favorite medium only using thinned down food gel and edible ink pens!
