With LJ's preschool carnival coming up, I knew I wanted to contribute something for the cake walk! Since I needed to drop it off a few days beforehand, I went with these cookies.
Check out the best recipes and tips all in one place- the blog Glorious Treats. If you don't follow her blog you are missing out on some great ideas for parties, cakes, and of course, cookies!
I used to use a different recipe but now I use hers and it turns out great every time.
|Step One: Don cure apron and no make-up. (Okay, the no make-up part is just on there as a disclaimer!)|
|Step Three: Bake em'. HINT: Cool your sheets in between batches by throwing them in the freezer for a minute! This will keep it from melting your dough too soon.|
|For my daisies, I did the petals first,then made a spiral of contrasting icing in the center. Then I added a dot of green.|
|For my tulips, I decided to get a little crazy and make a floral scene. I did the grass outline first, then flooded, then did the flowers, then the stem/leaves, and finally, the dots in the center in contrasting icing.|
|And to make everything look better, fancy packaging! I got three of these cupcake boxes for $3.50 at TJ Maxx. They are the "Meri" brand if you want to try to find some. They are perfect for cupcakes, but worked fine for the cookies too!|
I hope this inspired you to get baking! I hadn't done this in a while and it was fun, I have missed it! My house was a mess after because I let my 2 year old run wild. Otherwise, I wouldn't have gotten the cookies done!
I am working on the i-spy tutorial! I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and spent waaaaaay too much money buying miniature things to put in them. So excited to get the first one done!
