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: DSC_0139

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.

Dr. Who Sugar Cookies

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.

Baby Shower Sugar Cookies

I was asked to do cookies for a baby shower.  Because the invitations to the baby shower were turtles, we decided to do turtle cookies.

It was fun trying to match the colors – I must admit that one of my weaknesses is mixing colors – experimenting with combining colors to create just the perfect color.  But I guess that will come with practice.   I would love to hear any suggestions or great tips that anyone has regarding mixing colors.  What is your favorite kind of coloring?  Gel paste or powder?    

Firecrackers, Stars and Sugar Cookies

It’s almost the 4th of July, so I couldn’t resist putting together a sugar cookie bouquet to celebrate. I also decided to do some individual cookies that could be eaten right away.  And believe me, they didn’t last the night.

M I C K E Y…why? To Cheer Her Up

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.
