Tiffany, Brayden's mommy, planned a Jake and the Neverland Pirates themed birthday party for him. She needed help with some cute cupcake ideas for the party, so I put my thinking cap on. I came up with cookie toppers for the cupcakes, and she asked me to make them.
For the cookies, I used 8 different colors, but only 4 different gel colorings.. The sword consisted of the same brown gel coloring, but the base used a bit more than the handle. I also used very little of the brown to make a skin tone for Jake. The map used black, red, and light blue. Jake also used red, light blue, and dark brown.
Note on the map: I made six, but none of them had the same pattern.
The treasure chests are probably my favorite of the cookies. I used the same color scheme for them as I did for the sword. I added a little black for the handles. Then, I used my secret weapon for the treasure. Remember that Sprinkles Canister I made a few weeks ago? I had stored the left over sprinkles from the Olympics Cookies I had made in it. Since I had used a few different colors, they were all mixed together. These were
Jake was probably my least favorite. I wasn't too happy with the way his facial features turned out. He looks kind of scary in my opinion. Oh well, I learned a lesson. Tiffany and Brayden loved him though, which is good.
