First, let me apologize. I'm a terrible blogger. The worst. I will look at my blog, and realize it's been over a week since I've even thought about writing a new post. To be fair, I've been really busy. In the last 7 days, I have single-handedly cut, baked and frosted over 1000 cookies. The kids are back in school, and that helps me get my work done, but I have one little distraction at home. What am I supposed to do when I have such a cute distraction?
Have I mentioned he's a bit of a handful? Sorry - back to cookies! I had a client request a Dr. Seuss themed cake topper. Since I don't have as much luck working with fondant as I do with cookies, I asked if she would mind if I made the cake decorations out of cookies. She agreed, and I got to work! I wanted to make something special, something to match her adorable invitation.
I first frosted some scalloped round cookies in blue frosting with white dots to match the invitation background, and let the cookies completely dry. I then hand sketched the characters on the cookies, and piped on the details.
The number 2 shaped cookies were the party favors.
