Well, the school year has ended and I created several dozen sugar cookies and sugar cookie bouquets for kids to give to their teachers to say Thank You for all they do. Here are some mini sugar cookies that I did for an elementary school teacher: Here are two sugar cookie bouquets for teachers:
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.
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!
For boss’s day this year I decided to make cookies of the logos of the schools each of the bosses graduated from. The schools included Brigham Young University, University of Oklahoma, Idaho University, University of Utah and University of Iowa. Here is how they turned out: One sugar cookie recipient made this comment to me “Part of me wanted to save the cookie, but the other part of me knew how delicious it tastes and that part of me was much stronger than the other part and I ate the cookie.”
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.
