Mummy Flower Vase Cake with SugarVeil®

Few weeks ago I worked with new SugarVeil® line and I made this humorous Mummy Vase Cake  using Flower Toppers, Medallions, Leaf Toppers and Burlap mats.
New SugarVeil line is now available at Michaels Craft Store.

I've used SugarVeil before -see my 3D Wedding Cookies I made last year.

New mats are compact and really easy to work with and they produce beautifully detailed, delicate designs that can be used to decorate cookies, cakes, cupcakes and other treats. I used some edible lace to decorate fancy doughnuts-recipe I made recently.

To make the Mummy Vase Cake you need
Sugar Cookies
Fresh Lemon Royal Icing
Red food color to color icing 
Vanilla Pound Cake
Swiss Buttercream 1/2 batch,
Simple Syrup - brush on each cake layer, if needed
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
Bring to boil, boil for 4 minutes, remove from the heat, cool, add 1tsp vanilla extract and  few drops of caramel flavor(optional)SugarVeil® Icing
SugarVeil® Mats : burlap, leaf toppers, flower toppers, medallions

SugarVeil® Fin Tool and Spreader ,spatula, damp towel, damp paper towel, corn starch, clean food only pastry brush (not silicone one), cocoa powder.
I made small pouches with cheese cloth to store corn starch and cocoa powder. I used a rubber band to close them up and if needed I refilled them by simply removing the rubber band.

Vanilla and Chocolate Icing

Day of the Dead Cherry Skull Cookies

I had this design on my mind since last year but never got around to make the cookies. 
I'm not sure where I first saw the idea but I suspect it was a tattoo design of some sort. You know things you come across when you browse the online world, it got stuck in my head.
Those of you who saw my Nutella Cookies tutorial, probably will remember this super fun and easy decorating technique with wet on wet royal icing and edible markers. Despite their complicated look these cookies are  super easy to make.

To make these cookies you need:
Sugar Cookie Recipe
Fresh Lemon Royal Icing -
15 to 20 second consistency -white for the base, red, blue, yellow and orange, all 15 to 20second consistency
Piping consistency - black icing 
Fine Tip Edible marker - black by Rainbow Dust
To color my icing I used Americolor Gel Colors
