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
