Supplies Needed for Another Year of Fabulous Cookies
Steps for making Another Year of Fabulous Cookies
Start with the main attraction, a large fluted plaque cookie with plenty of room to pipe “Another Year of Fabulous” plus some birthday decoration.
First, outline a large plaque cookie with pipe consistency royal icing.
Pipe wording on cookie first to ensure that spacing will work out.
Fill large plaque cookie with flood consistency royal icing and set aside to dry.
Finally to create a tassel banner, start with a curved line in white. Next, add colored tassels by piping 3 lines fanning out from the string.
Next, we moved on to our filler cookie. You know the small ones that always disappear first:)
Using a small tiered cake cookie, outline the first layer.
Next, alternate blue and pink lines for candles in the top layer of the cake.
Immediately fill bottom layer with flood consistency icing.
Finish this bite-sized cookie off with flames in the light pink color.
The rectangle plaque cookie is a great shape for a special cookie for the birthday girl or boy.
Finally, finish off the set with a birthday cake.
Firstly, pipe outline on the first and second layers of a tiered birthday cake cookie.
Alternate pink and blue lines on the top of the cake for candles.
Finally, finish off candles by piping flames in light pink.
