Behind the Scenes with Mr. Bones
Mike LOVES Halloween and my love for Halloween has been growing over the years since being inspired by working on Martha Stewart’s amazing Halloween shows… as a result, we had some very fun props to dress the “set” with.
Its a weird feeling talking into a camera and it makes a lot of people (me included), nervous. Clicking the scene clapboard though, cracked me up every time which was a good distraction.
It happened to be a humid day which is never great for cookies- especially chocolate cookies. In addition I rolled these a little thin and under-baked them. Bad mistake! I had a few cookies break on during transport so I was sure to handle them carefully while icing. Meanwhile, while we were setting up the next shot…
Last but not least, the Dapper Zombie. I smile a lot when I look at our cookies (part of the reason Life is Sweet!) but this guy totally cracks me up for some reason and really makes me smile!
And that was a wrap on the how to videos! I wanted to show a fabulous tip for displaying these cookies on cupcakes- (delicious cupcakes in fact, by my cupcake friend Carrie). The humidity was just too much for them and we suffered several more cookie casualties! No worries though, we put them to good use and Mike and his family enjoyed a delicious and spooktacular snack that night!
I hope you are having this much fun with your Mr. Bones Cookie Cutter! Have a very Happy Halloween!
