Did you know lips are actually harder to pipe than they look? Without that little pull at the corners, or the indent at the center or those curved corners, they just don’t look right, and can end up looking pretty flat. These were both made for different beauty brands.
So this was a pretty big undertaking for me, not because of its size. I’ve made cakes and I’ve made cookies but I’ve never actually put them together. This is actually trickier than it sounds! Fpr one, cookies take a long time to ice and dry, so I could not quite change my mind when […]

Any cookie with a narrow long stem is at risk of breakage. Flamingos are another notoriously fragile one […]
When someone called up and said they wanted the coconuts from Moana, I was like, “Huh?” I loved Moana, I thought it was one of the best animations I’d seen in a while. But of the life of me, I could not recall any coconuts. After the client showed me a picture, still nothing rang […]
