Nice vlog Bridget. I used to love using luster dust. Did you know you can also use a dry bruch technique with it too? Totally different look.

whoops, dry BRUSH technique is what I should have typed :)

You are SOOOOOO cute!! I love luster dust and everything about its looks and even have served them to freinds, but never let my family eat any!! Am I a stinker or what??? Dont answer that.

Blessings!

You don't suppose that I could have you apply a bit of that magic "luster dust" to *my* face and have it make me look that cute, do you? :)

Bridget you always make me laugh..your a doll!! Didn't know that about letting the extra luster dust sit out...I usually just wash it out. Great to know! Thanks!!

Great video! Very helpful!

I wish I had your skills! I need to make more cookies to practice :)

Great tutorial! I'd love to see how you do disco dust, too... Do you apply that the same way? I can do luster dust, but the disco dust always ends up looking clumpy.

I'm trying to see it on Thur. and the video is not working! :( Maybe it's just a glitch, I'll try again later.

Kristan said...

I have always wondered how to get a silver look to my cookies...this is PERFECT!!

Thanks, Bridget!! :)

Agreed, disco dust.. can you also mix it into piping icing? What about karen's cookies meringue powder buttercream recipe? How about a blind taste test- identically decorated cookies with glaze, royal, meghan's "royal-ish" icing, and meringue powder buttercream compared on taste, decorating properties, ease of use? Perhaps 2-3 beginning bakers could decorate with each and compare ease of use? so many choices for us new cookiers....

I love this tutorial! My biggest problem with luster dust is keeping that tiny plastic lid on top of the container. The bottom of my sprinkles drawer is SOOOO shiny from all the luster dust I've unfortunately (wasted) spilled!

By the way... I LOVE your cherries table cloth! So cute, so you!

Bingo on all fronts! I thought I was the only one who had discovered the evaporation 'miracle'. hahaha

Thanks for all the great videos! I have supplies ordered to try my very first flooding-iced cookies..the scrabble tiles! So, I have two questions. #1. What size square cutter did you use on the scrabble tile cookies before you quartered them? #2. I hear a lot of mention about leaving the cookies to dry overnight...doesn't this compensate the texture of the actual cookie itself? Thanks!
