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.
Here is a sugar cookie bouquet I did for someone to give to their sister who works as a flight attendant for JetBlue and who loves Paris. I borrowed the design of the dog from Sweetopia.com.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. November and December were a whirlwind for me, but that will be another post. During life’s disruptions I did manage to make some Christmas cookies. I stuck with what I considered to be very basic and easy to create designs. I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas and I hope that the new year brings many blessings and much joy for all of us. Enough from me – enjoy the pictures: The following is a cookie that I created to give to the Young Women that I work with in church. It went along with our lesson on the nativity:
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!
