This category contains posts about the cakes, cookies, and cupcakes that I have made.
These include a Captain America Wonder Woman wedding cake and a semi-naked wedding cake with flower corsages.
I made Haunted Mansion cookies that I made for my husband’s birthday.
I airbrushed the Night Before Christmas cake and the Fishing cake.
Join the Duck Side – We have cookies. I made these Disney Star Wars Mashup cookies for my son who is a big Disney and Star Wars fan.
I found a picture that I really liked by Deviant Art – Photon nmo. That picture has Mickey Mouse dressed as Luke Skywalker and Donald Duck as Darth Vader. Duck Stormtroopers are behind him. Donald is holding a red lightsaber and Mickey is holding a green lightsaber. Behind Mickey on the original artwork is Nemo as Admiral Ackbar. I love the words on this which say on one side : ‘Come to the Duck Side.’ – – and on the other side ‘It’s a Mouse Trap.’
My Mickey Mouse Luke Skywalker cookie and Donald Duck Darth Vader cookie and Duck Stormtrooper Cookie are based on the drawing by Photon nmo.
Here’s a close-up of the Goofy C3PO mashup cookie. He is paired with a LEGO R2-D2. The Mickey Mouse Luke Skywalker mashup cookie is paired with a LEGO Princess Leia figure.
In addition, here’s a close-up of the Stitch Yoda Mashup cookie beside a LEGO Yoda figure. The Mickey Mouse cookie shows him wearing Jedi robes and holding a green lightsaber. It is beside a LEGO Luke Skywalker figure.
I made these pies for my husband’s father who is a big Star Trek fan. I usually decorate wedding cakes, celebration cakes, and cookies, so this is my first time decorating a pie. He really likes Star Trek: The Next Generation and he wanted pies so I made a Captain Jean Luc Picard Pie and a Commander William Riker Pie.
Here’s a terrific video she did on how to make Disney Princess Pies.
And another on Mother’s Day pie ideas. I love the portrait of her mother that she did at the end.
Both videos gave me good ideas on how to do a decorated pie.
How I Made these Star Trek pies
I made a test pie to test out some ideas since this is the first time I have done decorated pies. First, I cut out border and then the stars in the border. The crust was not frozen enough so the stars distorted some and the crust cracked around the stars. Second, I made a peach pie. Third, I placed the decorated border on top of the pie, then covered it in foil and baked it. Fourth, when the pie came out of the oven, some of the crust stuck to the foil so a small piece of the decorative circle broke off the pie when the foil was removed.
Final Picard and Riker pie Steps
First, for the final pies, I decided to cut the stars from another piece of dough and add them to the crust using egg white. Second, for the circle around the edge of the pie, I cut out the outer circle with the pie plate turned upside down. The inner circle was cut using a bowl edge.
Third, I painted the character images onto the extra inside circle, then cut around the drawing.
Fourth, I used the iPhone Camera Lucida app to help draw the pictures.
Fifth, I baked the characters and the circle separately from the pie for 12 minutes at 400 degrees.
Here’s a picture of the decorated pie tops before they were added to the pie. I baked all decorated pieces separately from the pie.
I used an apple pie recipe from Rose Beranbuam’s The Pie and Pastry Bible. Everyone said the apple pies I made were really delicious. My test pie used her peach pie recipe and it was really good too.
My picture of Riker is based on an Art Marker Pen Sketch Drawing Poster of him on the internet.
Here’s a picture of my finished Riker Pie.
Here’s a picture of my finished Picard Pie.
My picture of Picard is based on a silhouette painting done by carbon copy arts.
I made these cute Ranger Woodlore and Humphrey the Bear cookies because I really like these Disney cartoon characters. These cookes have 3 different poses for Humphrey the Bear. The 4th cookie is Ranger J. Audubon Woodlore because when you see Humphrey, usually the Ranger is somewhere near by.
I love Humphrey’s facial expressions. They convey all of his emotions since he does not talk.
The pose on the left cookie is from Disney’s In the Bag cartoon where Ranger Woodlore gets the bears to pick up litter in the park. Humphrey is wearing a bag for the trash and he has a stick in the other hand. Both are a yellow color.
Ranger Woodlore and Humphrey the Bear Cookies
Ranger J. Audubon Woodlore is a wonderful character. He is a nice addition to the bears and with Donald Duck. I used layers of green and black color to make his belt a dark green. His uniform is also several layers of green. I added black lines around the belt and the collar to make them stand out. I also made his glasses a thicker black line so they would look like they were on top of his face.
The Humphrey the Bear cookie on the left shows him with a happy expression on his face and waving.
The cookie on the right shows him surrounded by water. Humphrey is in the lake at the end of Disney’s Hooked Bear cartoon just like he is in the cookie with blue water all around him. He has a disappointed look on his face since he did not have any fish at the end of the cartoon.
For years, Humphrey and Ranger Woodlore merchandise could be found at Walt Disney World’s Wilderness lodge. My husband has a stuffed version of each character. I wish they still carried it.
