Arty's 12 Days After Christmas: Day 9!

Today's prize comes from Christine's Molds!  Christine is so awesome and you are going to love her shop.  Christine carries molds and so much more! like specialty tips and dusts and cutters.  But let's talk about those molds for a minute.  If you haven't decorated cookies using molds, you are missing out!  Molds are so easy to use and they give beautiful results.  (I love it when beautiful cookies are easy!)  Christine carries so many molds in many themes and the size of them are perfect for cookies.  

You can fill them with candy melts, candy clay, or fondant for gorgeously consistent results every time.  I also experimented with this fabulous mermaid tail mold Christine carries and I was blown away!  I filled the mold with cookie dough, chilled it for a minute, popped it out, baked it in the oven and the result was out of this world!  That whole tail is cookie!  

Your fabulous prize today is an $80 gift certificate from Christine's Molds!... are you kidding me?!  $80 to pick anything you want from her fantastic selection.  Eeeek!  Enter to win below and of course, along with this awesome prize you will also win prizes from Day 1 - 8:

Arty's 12 Days After Christmas: Day 5!

Bakers of all kinds will fall in love with this fabulous DoughEZ rolling system.  I've used it for cookies, cinnamon rolls, and pie crusts (look at the handy sizing guides on the mat!) and there are countless other clever uses from cake pop making and fondant rolling that will simplify your whole process!  The mat also comes with guides for different thickness that take out any guesswork and result in perfectly even cookies and crusts.  The mat itself means your dough will stay in one spot as you roll it out and you don't need extra flour resulting in a more tender bite to your baked goods.  The best part? not flouring your counter means a WAY tidier kitchen!

There are so many great videos and ideas on their website: Check them out here and see it in action!  

Along with this awesome prize you will also win prizes from Day 1 - 4:
