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.
It seems that some of the most popular sugar cookies I do are the flowers. I decided to try a different twist on the sugar cookie flowers and do stained glass flower sugar cookies. I also did some sugar cookie flowers and sugar cookie butterflies for an event prior to Halloween. Because I had several sugar cookies left over, I decided to try to turn them into Halloween sugar cookies and this is what I came up with…. The deep purple and bright orange on the sugar cookie butterflies was very striking and quickly became my favorite combination of colors for the butterflies. What do you think of the variations?
For all you Dr. Who fans here are some Dr. Who sugar cookies I did for a friend. I had to use something from my favorite Dr. Who – Matt Smith. Who is your favorite Dr. Who?
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.
