I'm going to a birthday party tonight for a friend of a friend. My friend wanted some cookies so I made her some. She wanted two dozen cookies and pretty much let me have free rein over what to make. The friend she wanted these cookies for is a big fan of a lot of the super popular teen series books and very popular and trending TV shows (Dr. Who, Supernatural, etc). I decided to do three different themed cookies with four different designs for each with eight cookies altogether. I am also a fan of many of these series of shows and/or books....so making these cookies wasn't too hard. I did a lot of research on Pinterest and the internet to get some ideas. I found some good ideas (which I provided links for), but of course the original sources are better than mine. I am proud of these cookies though. I even tried some new techniques. For the Harry Potter logo, howling wolf, and lightning bolt, I printed images off the computer onto card stock, then cut the images out and traced it (with edible food coloring marker) on the completely dried cookie then traced that with royal icing.
|Harry Potter Cookies. I got the ideas from here.|
|Twilight themed cookies. I got a the apple idea from here. I also got the Breaking Dawn chess piece idea from here.|
|Dr. Who cookies. I don't watch the show, but the person I made the cookies for is a fan along with a few of her friends. I guess I should probably give it a try and start watching it....|
|Display of all the cookies. I did wrap half of the cookies and left the other half unwrapped so people can either grab one to eat or grab one to take home.|
