I was asked to do some small sugar cookie bouquets as table center pieces for a luncheon. I was going to put only 3 sugar cookies in each sugar cookie bouquet. Because there were only going to be 3 sugar cookies in each sugar cookie bouquet center piece I decided to try something new – a double-sided sugar cookie. For each sugar cookie I decorated both sides of the cookie. I didn’t want people on one side of the table looking at the undecorated backside of a sugar cookie.
It was fun to try this – here’s how they turned out:
I have a friend whose daughter loves Batman and Halloween. My friend wanted me to do a small cookie bouquet for her daughter and she wanted a Halloween theme along with a Batman theme. At first we thought about doing some Halloween sugar cookies and then include a batman sugar cookie. But I thought there had to be something a little more creative than doing that. Then it finally hit me – why not incorporate the Batman logo into the Halloween cookies. I decided to go with a witch theme for the sugar cookies.
Starting from the top, a sugar cookie witch’s hat with the Batman logo on the band:
Next, the witch socks and shoes:
Of course, every witch has her cauldron:
The finished bouquet:
I’m happy to report that my friend’s daughter loved her Halloween treat!
I made some cookies for my niece’s baptism (well, actually I think she is really my great-niece). She turned 8 and was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The cookie is a shield with the letters CTR, which stands for Choose the Right. Of course, I had to make them in her favorite colors – pink and purple.
I decided to try some with sugar to give the shield some sparkle, but when I tried to put the CTR on top of the sugar I couldn’t get the edges of the letters to be smooth, they were very ragged, so I gave up on that idea and just did the shields with the sugar sprinkled on them.
And of course, because it was her special day, I wanted to give her a special sugar cookie bouquet that she did not have to share with anyone!
