TUTORIAL: Dracula In Love

Monday, September 30, 2013

So I was searching my brain for something cute to design for Halloween....and all I could think of was that movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall....and that Dracula love ballad..

Hillarious if you haven't seen it.  Jason Segal....

Anyway.....that's how I ended up with this:



Yes...Dracula is in love.... and he has it baaaaaaad.

Who is he in love with??  Uh...I dunno...probably a blood bank tech....

No matter....

To share the love I thought I would also share a little tutorial for y'all....simple and sweet...



Then maybe a few more shots of the collection here...because I took a bajillion pics....weird right?  I mean me?  Taking way too many pics of cookies?????



So let's start at the beginning....

The cutter.....we all have this cutter....you know we do...or you know someone who can lend it to you....


Wilton Valentines Day Heart with Wings?!  Say What??!  That's crazy!!

No, your not shocked at all are you.....

You will need a color for the wings, a color for the heart, and a color for detail...might I suggest purple, red and black...in that order.

You will also need some of THESE guys....


Yeah...totally stocked up on these over the holidays because they were EVERYWHERE.  Love it.

I notice you checking out my tweezers there.....don't deny it, I see you....

They are pretty swank.  Might be tempted to part with a pair this week...something about a giveaway coming up I dunno...

Moving on...

STEP 1!
Outline your heart and wings.....


Note the wings....I basically just did the opposite of the outline....

STEP 2!
Fill in the wings!






And then let them sit there a bit....don't rush it...take things slow...this is love not lust...

STEP 3!
Fill in your heart

Then STEP 4!!!
Use your cool tweezers....oh you don't have some of those??  Maybe you could acquire some in the next 2 weeks ya know....if you are lucky....pay attention.

Take your tweezers or fingers or whatev....



And grab one of your little sugar pearls (which taste like sweet tarts....awesome)

And put them on your heart....


To make eyes....

Then ya know....add your details.

STEP 5!!!!


Add a face.....give the little guy some personality..

Now my guy is happy because he likes being in love...but some people hate love....if that's the case...go ahead and make him mad...or sad...or creepy.....or just apathetic....at this point it's kind of your call.

Cute and easy huh?

Now how bout some more little tidbits of "oooooooo"

That Dracula....


Made from an ice cream cutter.....

Blew your mind!!!  Or not...I'm kinda obvious... I just like to think I'm an awesome super genius...so humor me.


Ok.....I kid you not....I'm sitting here in the living room writing this post ....like RIGHT NOW... and I hear a giant crash.  I just knew it was the sound of pans falling....

Daughter was climbing furniture...like she does....and knocked them all over....broke just about every single one of these....I'm serious..... an hour or two later and this post wouldn't exist.

Ah....the joys of parenting...

 
Yeah....I'm going to go clean up crumbs now...

I love those tweezers, I have a pair and use them all the time, they are awesome. But, not nearly as awesome as these cookies. As usual, you have done a stellar job. Thanks so much for sharing before the catastrophe! LOL!

I'm officially in love. With a cookie. If I burn dinner it is your fault!

The vampire from the ice cream sundae cutter is so creative, and so perfectly wonderful!
