When making these cookies I learned a valuable lesson.
WEAR GLOVES WHEN YOU AIRBRUSH ON COOKIES! I really hope I'm not alone with my hands all colored and greenish, bluish fingernails. If you don't believe me check the video tutorial at the end of this post. Great, I got this out of the way so we talk cookies.
As I mentioned I used an airbrush on these cookies, specifically to create a background with clouds and grass. (More about the airbrush I used can be found here) I fell in love with the airbrushed look on cookies by Marlyn from Montreal Confection. As I drew my carriage design I realized something was missing and then it hit me..clouds and grass.
