My mother is an artist, see cardsbycathrina.com, and does a lot of entertaining and baking. She made edible toppers using her latest owl and bird drawings that she scanned and uploaded to YouCake. Below are the results along with a two-part how-to video— first the baking, then the decorating. She did not film the eating, but they are delicious. She used the following recipe from Eloises Easy Cookies Recipe. She flavored this batch with lemon, she has also done with orange. The top-tip to share is that she added some lemon juice when she thinned the royal frosting mix…a really, nice touch.
Since the toppers stay fresh in their sealed bags unopened for about a month, she took a pack with her to France. When she has guests come over she can make a batch of cookies and top them with her lovely owl art.
The results, they are really adorable!
The video, part-one baking:
The video, part-two decorating:
Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks. Let cookies cool completely before icing.
For 3in. round cookies use 3.5 in cookie cutter
3 oz pasturized egg whites and 4 cups of confectioner’s sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla (or other flavoring)
Beat the egg whites at least 4 minutes until stiff and shiny white
Add little by little the powdered sugar add vanilla
Thin with water or juice to paint on cookies prior to putting on the YouCake topper

While my friend Deb was visiting, we made brownies and decided to custom decorate the brownies using melted white chocolate – easy and yum! I like using melted white chocolate, the topper sets as soon as the white chocolate dries and is simpler to transport.
To begin, melt the chocolate according to the packaging. We used Nestle white chocolate morsels, which are available at any supermarket. Follow the direction on the packaging. Since our microwave did not allow us to lower the power, we used the double-boiler and followed these instructions exactly for melting white chocolate and it worked perfectly.
Once the white chocolate is melted spread the melted chocolate on the brownie – or any cookie you are want to decorate.

All of our cakes are special, but these cakes get the term “specialty cakes” because of the “irregular” edible prints that they inspired for sculpted cakes.
There is a tremendous opportunity to tell your story visually on cakes. For example, when you turn fifty – a todo list list becomes extra sweet, such as in this cake: First, “Remind Mano to file the paper for the generator” and end by “rocking the next 50 years!”
At work, keep the office theme…Easel and Post it Notes work great!
Great for wedding or anniversary cakes…make a film strip of images
