Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
I know I am too late to inspire my Canadian friends this year, but you Americans still have a month to think about pretty-ing up your thanksgiving table. I don't usually go overboard. Last year I gathered twigs and hot-glued them together as a stand for very simple place-cards. This year, I was in the mood for something yummier:
Pumpkin cookies, matching stamps and some washi tape. It's a simple design, but I didn't want to make anything fussy or very time-consuming this year.
For the stamped pumpkins, I computer-generated the names and used lawn fawn stamps and dies (click here!)
My cookies are so simple. But I'm thrilled at how much cleaner my piping looks! I tried out some texture on a few of them, but made this simple version for most of them. My friend Marlyn (Montreal Confections) taught me everything I know so far - here's the tutorial for how to make the royal icing:
We have so much to be thankful for this year! Cheers to counting our blessings, and stuffing our faces full of turkey, sweet potatoes and apple pie.
