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.

Christmas Sugar Cookies

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:

Because I’m Batman….

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:

I’m happy to report that my friend’s daughter loved her Halloween treat!

Halloween Sugar Cookies

Well, it’s October so it was time to breakout the Halloween cookie cutters.  Here are some cookies that I did. These spiders and webs were inspired by Marian at Sweetopia. And the design for these wonderful witch shoes were from Sugar Belle. The little bats are bite size.
