How to Ruin Grandma’s Cookie Recipe in Epoxy!

So I had this crazy and wacky idea to take a cookie recipe, bake the cookies and encase that cookie and the recipe card in epoxy. This could then hang on the kitchen wall and you could always be reminded of Grandma’s recipe and see exactly what the cookie looks like. I wanted to do this all with supplies you could get from your local home center and not need any fancy woodworking tools. I attempted this twice and failed each time. If you watch the video above you’ll see that I tried to pour all the epoxy at once and I should have done it in layers and allowed it to dry between layers. By pouring it all at once it doesn’t cure evenly. I also used a heat gun to get the bubbles out and that speeds up the curing process which is a no no! Instead I should have used a small butane torch. If you do try this and you’re successful please let me know because I’d love to see this work!
