YEAH BABY! as Austin Powers would say.
We’re over the moon and stars about our Editorial Director, Monique’s, passion and ridiculous talent for creating beautiful homemade handcrafted sinfully delicious baked treats.
I asked Monique (on instagram as @moni_o_matic) how she made the star cookies. She used the Black Velvet star-shaped cut-out recipe from The Sweetapolita Bake Shop by Rosie Alyea. I did some quick digging and discovered that Rosie has, in addition to her book, a shop on Etsy where you can purchase colorful edible decorations to fancy-up your edible creations! Monique, of course, being the artisan that she is, added her Moni_O_Matic Mojo to Rosie’s recipe, covering the cookies with modeling chocolate and then brushing them with 100% edible gold powder.
