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.
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:
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!
Here are some more sugar cookie bouquets. The first one is a flower sugar cookie bouquet with sugar cookie butterflies that I did as a gift for someone to give to a co-worker. If you look closely you will see a small sugar cookie lady bug on one of the flowers.
The next one is a flower sugar cookie bouquet that I made for a Young Women’s New Beginnings program. There are eight sugar cookie flowers, one for each young women value.
The next sugar cookie bouquet was also for a Young Women’s New Beginnings program. The theme of the new beginnings program had to do with puzzle pieces and how they “fit” together to lead you to the temple. I did a sugar cookie puzzle piece in each of the young women value colors and then I put a Salt Lake temple sugar cookie in the center.
The hardest part of this sugar cookie bouquet was figuring out how to fit Choice & Accountability onto the sugar cookie! Thank goodness royal icing is forgiving because it took me two or three tries.
