Captain America Shield Cookies

A friend asked me to make Captain America Shield cookies. Of course, no problem, I thought.  Then I realized : all those circles, how am I going to pipe them? I don't have a kopykake so mostly I rely on templates. Template it is. I made a simple paper template for circles and a star template. I used them to help me get even circles and a pretty white star.

To make Captain America Cookies you need

Simple Paper Templates, use exacto knife to cut out the strips, like shown in the vidoe
Disposable Piping Bags
Baking Sheets I love these

Sugar Cookie Dough

Harry Potter Gingerbread House

I haven't made a gingerbread house since last Christmas.
It was time make some new gingerbread. Halloween is around the corner and I had a  thought :
"Harry Potter Gingerbread House."
That's what I made : from  glasses, lightning bolt, platform 9 3/4, owls, broom, magic books, cauldron, polyjuice potion, golden snitch and glittering green skull.
Isn't it pretty? I'm really loving this piece more and more every day.
It  also smells really, really good.
