Age is mind over matter, if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. The older you get the less you need, so we have a tradition with our close circle of friends to celebrate birthday’s with gifts only on milestone year’s that end in 0 or 5. The cookies for this set were created to celebrate a milestone birthday for a special person. This guy loves life and is a great family man. We worked with his lovely wife to drum up some ideas to create a set of 60th birthday cookies that are all about him.
Supplies needed for 60th Birthday Cookies:
- Rolled sugar cookie recipe
- Royal icing recipe in white, black, yellow, light gray and blue
- Cookie cutters in square and rectangle shapes
- Sunburst stencil and gold airbrush spray
- Black edible marker and leaf green gel paste food color

After we piped and flooded the base cookie in white, we allowed it to dry for an hour. We piped a mountain range background across all the cookies and then added different downhill skier images.

Pipe and flood the rectangle shapes you are using for golf cookies and allow to dry for 1 hour.
