EC&I 831 – Major Learning Project Summary

Again, wow! I can’t believe we are already at the end of this course, and thus the end of my major project. It has been a very busy semester filled with dough and icing. My fiancĂ© has appreciated all the baking popping up every weekend, but I am not sure if my waistline agrees withContinue reading “EC&I 831 – Major Learning Project Summary”

Major Learning Project – Week 9

The time has finally come – my last week of cookie decorating (for this class anyways). This week I decided to try and tie everything together and create a variety of Christmas cookies with the royal icing. I knew right away that I wanted to do a candy cane and a Christmas tree. I thoughtContinue reading “Major Learning Project – Week 9”

Major Learning Project – Week 7/8

It is officially the Christmas season! Well, for me anyways. I like to start early. Since our class is almost complete, I decided that I wanted the last two activities of my major learning project to be related to Christmas cookies. For this (two) week’s challenge I decided to try my hand at a 3DContinue reading “Major Learning Project – Week 7/8”

Major Learning Project – Week 6

Going to keep it short and sweet this week! I kept it simple by trying a technique I had previously done on a cake with buttercream icing. I figured it should easily transfer over to be able to do on royal icing as royal icing will give an even smoother and harder surface than buttercream.Continue reading “Major Learning Project – Week 6”

Major Learning Project- Week 5

It’s November 1st!!! Yes, I am one of those crazy Christmas people. It is my favourite time of the year and I love all the joy and happiness (and baking excuses) that the holiday season brings. Finally, to top it off, my favourite holiday baking show- Holiday Baking Championship starts tonight. However, I can’t getContinue reading “Major Learning Project- Week 5”

Major Learning Project – Week 3/4

Well… better late than never! Last weekend, I attempted a new type of cookie decorating. Right after I made these beauties, I came down with flu. This weekend, I finally feel energized enough to blog about them, but I will not be making a new set. Hence the 3/4 combined post. Let’s begin!

Major Learning Project – Week 2

Before I begin, I would like to mention that I will be using a lot of the same decorating related terminology in each post. When a new term arises, I will do my best to explain it, or add a link. If you are just joining my journey now, feel free to check out thisContinue reading “Major Learning Project – Week 2”

Major Learning Project – Week 1

So it begins! I started my cookie decorating journey this week by practicing what seems to be the most basic required skill for decorating cookies: flooding. Flooding is the term for the technique cookie decorators use when they create a smooth finish on a cookie. Think of it like the background behind whatever design isContinue reading “Major Learning Project – Week 1”

Major Learning Project – Introduction

For as long as I can remember, I always enjoyed spending time in the kitchen with my mom baking. As I got older, I began to bake more and more by myself. Once I moved out on my own, I continued to bake often, using it as a tool to destress. My fiancĂ© will sayContinue reading “Major Learning Project – Introduction”
