Thanksgiving Cookies

The Canadian Thanksgiving holiday is always the second Monday in October. Fall comes early in this part of the northern hemisphere. The days (and nights) are now much cooler now. It was only 9 ºC when I went running this morning, but the sun was out and the fall foliage was beautiful. This set of Thanksgiving Cookies pays homage to the fall leaves.

The inspiration for this set, designed to raise funds for Yarmouth Charity Cookies, includes a large oak and maple leaf, coloured in fall hues. The technique was fast, fun and did not require outlining and flooding. We followed these instructions by The Bearfoot Baker. The 3-D effect of the veins on the leaves is very nice.

Just a few random notes about the set…The plaque was flooded with ivory-tinted icing. The large pumpkin was decorated with vines. Vine leaves were created with a Wilton #65 tip. I recently purchased a Duff Airbrush set and used it for the first time on these cookies. I just sprayed the edges on brown, following the Bearfoot Baker’s design. It gave a nice effect and toned down the bright colours.
