Casino Night Auctions

With a poker loving husband and board game loving kids, I decided it was probably worth organizing these cookie pictures next. 

Here are the cookie platters from our school's January 2014 Casino Night Auction.  Since I waited until the very last minute to make this huge batch of cookies (and on the same weekend as two of the kids’ birthdays), it was a good thing I had already done the poker chips, dice and sparkly dollar signs the previous year!  It’s what gave me time to try out the school logo and playing cards that I added to the tray this year . . .

I used Wilton® White Pearl Dust to make the dollar signs ($) shiny.  After multiple attempts at using this pearl dust in the past, I’ve found that dipping a small brush in vodka and then in the pearl dust before gently painting it on COMPLETELY DRIED cookies works best.  The vodka slowly evaporates leaving a nice pearly shine.

Looking back, I wish I would have added numbers to the cookies and some yellow poker chips this time!   Fortunately, I’m guessing there may just be a next time for these cookies (even if it’s just family game night).
