This is a cookie preparation table that was made for door prizes at the convention. The theme was What's Cook'in? It took the longest time to figure out what to make for the door prizes and tote bag favors. I was told do what you love doing best in real life. Bake cookies. So my theme was born and the picture above is the final project. Four of these tables were donated for door prizes to be given out to the participants. There were enough donations for approx. 550 people to get a prize at the first banquet. The plate of cookies on the table were the 21 swap items needed and 10 were also donated to the children's group. All total I baked over 700 cookies to make the platters out of Fimo clay and tiny buttons dipped in glue and sparkle dust for sugar cookies.
This was the most exciting thing I bought at the show. Ruth Stewart makes this cake decorating kit for mini cakes. There is a star tip and the other 2 look like pins but actually have a hole in them so you can write. If you go onto Ruth's website you will see her beautiful lifelike cakes and cupcakes. My favorite ones are the checkerboard cakes.
She has her web site set up so you can purchase from it. She does all scales and has silicon molds for cupcakes, cookies. Her booth was so popular with a long line at the show, and everything sold out very quickly. A large variety of laser cut doilies including black ones are part of the inventory as well..
I will show the 2015 Name Souvenir that she made at the convention as soon as I unpack it.
I look forward to this winter when I can try out the mini cake decorator.
If you Google search for images of Ruth Stewart miniatures a lot of pictures of her items will come up.
