Teacher Appreciation Sugar Cookie Bouquet

Well, the school year has ended and I created several dozen sugar cookies and sugar cookie bouquets for kids to give to their teachers to say Thank You for all they do.

Here are some mini sugar cookies that I did for an elementary school teacher:

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.

I was asked again this year to make a sugar cookie bouquet for Docutah, the southern Utah documentary film festival held in St. George, UT.   A special event was held to promote the festival and as part of that event they had a panel present to discuss the documentary that was shown.  To say thank you to the panel members, they gave each of them a cookie from the bouquet.

Easter Sugar Cookies

It’s time for Easter sugar cookies!  Here are some I did for M&R Gallery of Photography.  They have an annual “chicks and bunny” day where kids can have their pictures taken with live chicks or a bunny. They wanted some chick sugar cookies – but I also thought they needed some bunny sugar cookies.

And of course it wouldn’t be Easter without Easter egg sugar cookies.  These are some Easter egg sugar cookies I did for a friend last year:

Skylander Sugar Cookies

Just like when I was asked to make Beyblade sugar cookies, when I was asked to make Skylander sugar cookies for a little boy’s birthday I had no clue what the Skylander game was.  Thank goodness for the internet!  I decided to do the 8 elements and then 4 of the characters.

These Skylander character sugar cookies were some of the more complicated designs I’ve done.  But it was fun to see if I could really do it!
