The Academy Awards were on tonight. Did you watch? I love the Oscars, but I have to admit I only saw one of the films nominated for Best Picture. (2011 was a busy year for me.) Anyways, The Help was a great movie and I thought Octavia Spencer deserved her win. In honor of tonight’s awards show I made Oscar trophy cookies.
I was a little nervous the design of this cookie might look like gold camouflage. Being an all gold statue, there wouldn’t be a lot of contrasting colors when drawing it out on a cookie. I opted to do a shaded version of the trophy showcasing lowlights and highlights. I think if you squint your eyes you can see the bald man proudly holding his sword. Overall, I think the cookies came out pretty good.
Here’s a summary of tonight’s award results. Congrats to all the winners!
