December 2013 Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing

There was a whole lot of cookie making throughout December!  How about a re-cap of the month?

Personalized stocking and mini holly cookies.  Mini Christmas tree cupcake toppers.  These little guys are on sticks to decorate cupcakes.

Here are the stockings and holly leaves in their favor bags....

This is something I've wanted to revisit since I first started cookieing.  Do you remember those games where you had to roll the balls into the holes or through a maze?  This is it in cookie form.  Back in January of 2012, I made some "game cookies".  Yes, they're awful.  It wasn't until I recently saw this video by Montreal Confections that my biggest dilemma was solved.  I thought that I needed a container to hold in the sugar pearls.  MC piped an icing border to contain everything then put the cookies in favor bags.  Brilliant!  So here's my newest version.....

Onto traditional Christmas shapes....Candy canes, snowflakes, holly leaves, cupcakes, ornaments, light bulbs, and of course Mr and Mrs Claus.  I made a whoooooole lot of these this month!

The Mrs is a new one this year and my favorite!  I pretty much combined two different designs that I saw online....One from Sugarbelle and one from Make Me, Cake Me.  I love them both!

And onto personalized snowmen and some mini snowflakes....

Snowman heads and mini flakes.....

all bagged up for favors too....

It was a busy cookie month!  I hope you enjoyed a lovely Christmas!

Get Well Ravens Cookies in a Jar

I'm still catching up on past cookie designs.  These were made and shipped quite some time ago.

A Baltimore Raven was injured before this season began.  One of the coaches' wives contacted me to send cookies to the player.  That was pretty exciting!

She ordered one of my "Cookies in a Jar".  The cookies are shaped like pills.  You know - to help him heal.  I hope it worked!

Fourteen cookies packed inside a canning jar, complete with prescription label.

Bridal Shower Cookies

Crabs, gowns, hearts, daisies.....all sugar cookies decorated with royal icing for a bridal shower.

A bridal shower from quite some time ago.

I love the colors!

My cousin Meghann, from Blank Canvas Creative, creates custom tags for my customers.  She designs them, I print them out and attach them to favor bags.  She's good, huh?  The tags are always amazing!

Butterfly Cookies

I made these ages ago but never posted them.

Marbling royal icing is so much fun.  The possibilities are endless.

The designs are achieved by adding royal icing lines (in this case yellow and black) on top of a wet icing base (white), then dragging a toothpick through it.

Mug Sitter Cookies

A friend of mine bought a cutter for me - a mug sitter cutter.

The large flower has a notch cut into it so that the cookie can rest on the rim of a cup.  Of course you could create your own notch with a small rectangular cutter into any shape cookie that you'd like.

I thought that this presentation would make a sweet gift......A mug filled with minis.......

Feet and Hand Cookies

These were made for physical therapists that work with children.

Feet and hands in bright, primary colors.

I was not at all pleased with the shape of the hand cutter.  I tried to modify it a bit with the icing.  I think that they're much better than if I had followed the shape of the cookie!

Book Sugar Cookies

These cookies were made for a baby shower.  The theme was "Starting a New Chapter".

The book design and "Thanks" were taken from tags that were created for the shower.  The books were royal icing transfers.  I used my Kopykake for the text.

They were bagged and put into jars for shipping.

Later, they were popped into the favor bags.  Not a bad match!
