Popcorn Sugar Cookies

When I was doing the sugar cookie bouquet for the Docutah event, I wanted to make some small bite size sugar cookie samples to hand out at the reception before the film.  And nothing goes better with a film than popcorn – so I decided to try to make some sugar cookie popcorn.  Here is what I came up with:

If you want to know how I did the popcorn, please keep reading.

First I cut out small bite size flowers and then I “chunked” them, which basically means I cut out chunks from the flowers, and then I “smooshed” them:

At this point I was still a little skeptical that it would look like popcorn.  But I pressed on and added the royal icing to the popcorn sugar cookies.

Once I put the finished sugar cookies in the popcorn bucket I was pleased with how they turned out.  Something kind of fun and unexpected.  I think these sugar cookies in a little popcorn bucket would make a cute gift to give to someone along with some movie tickets.
