Magical Birthday

Harry Potter still has the power to create magical birthdays.  And so I hoped it was with this request.  I borrowed a little wisdom from Luna to showcase in this set.

Bookmarked

Carrie and Elizabeth are true book enthusiasts and for their wedding they wanted to create a favor that had that “snuggle.up.with.a.cup.of.joe.and.a.good.read” vibe.  The couple had already found some mugs they liked so I wanted to create cookies that would fit into the cup.  I thought some nice bookmarks would be clever and asked them to pick a few of their favorite books. I also included one book shaped cookie because I just couldn’t pass up the ‘chapter/page turner’ word play…  Here’s the result:bookmarks

The whole kit-and-kaboodle before they were heat sealed into their bags.

Harry Potter

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.
