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:
Here are samples of the Christmas sugar cookies that I did this year. The following are miniature (bite size) cookies that I did. I did a few Christmas sugar cookie bouquets.
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!
Well, it’s been a while since I posted last – a lot of things have happened and one of those things included someone’s birthday. My sister was visiting and decided to take a cookie bouquet back for her daughter that was having her 35th birthday. We decided on cupcakes and balloons. Because she was flying I made the cookies, packaged them up for her and she took them home and assembled the bouquet herself. She did such a great job that I told her she was hired! Now, if I can only get her to move here and take the job. Here is the picture my sister sent me of the bouquet all put together.
My friend took her family to Disneyland for their family vacation. While there her daughter ended up in the hospital and spent the next week enjoying their vacation from a hospital bed. I don’t even think Mickey visited her in the hospital. I’m very happy to report she’s doing just fine. Her souvenir was an incision on her knee with over a dozen staples holding it all together. So, to cheer her up I decided to take her a sugar cookie bouquet. And the theme of the bouquet…. well, Mickey Mouse of course! I got the Mickey Mouse cookie cutter several months ago, mostly because I love Mickey Mouse. Yes, I will admit it – I LOVE MICKEY! Just ask my friends. I have a friend that is somewhat horrified by this fact, but she is even more horrified by the fact that my bathroom is completely decorated in a Mickey Mouse/Disney theme. My favorite Disney character, you ask? The evil queen from Snow White. I always wonder what that says about me, but whatever it is I’m sure it’s good. Anyway, back to the bouquet….. I wanted the Disney theme and wanted to use bright colors.
