Inspiration Challenge: April {April Showers}

This month’s inspiration challenge is April showers. After last year’s rain boots I wanted to stay away from rain equipment. Tons of ideas ran through my mind but I wasn’t loving any of them. Suddenly it was almost April and I had no cookies. I had to hurry up and come up with something. I decided to take a literal approach to April showers and try my hand at a little ombre.

Simple but I love them. The letters are meant to look like clouds.
To make them you first outline your cookie with piping consistency icing.
Then with flood icing mark the bottom of where you want the first color to end and fill in that section. I gave it a bit of a wavy look for a cloud effect.
Repeat with the 2nd color and then finish by flooding with the last color.

I’m loving the ombre and definitely want to do it again.

Next month the theme is “Cookies You’ve Feared Making”. What cookies have you avoided making because they scare you? Is it characters? Is it faces? You get the idea. Make what you fear.

I hope that you’ll link up your April showers designs this month. We really enjoy looking at your cookies and appreciate you playing along.

I can’t believe that next month marks the end of our year long challenges. I’d like to thank Stephanie for always dealing with me procrastinating and freaking out about the challenges. She ought to charge me for the therapy. LOL!

Let’s head on over to her blog聽Ellie’s Bites Decorated Cookies聽and see what she came up with this month. I’m sure it is awesome.
