Recently we attended a milestone 60th birthday party for our friend, Ian. This was one of those situations where the invitation states “no gifts.” However, Ian has an uncompromised sweet tooth, so we could not pass up the opportunity to create a set of custom decorated sugar cookies for the occasion.
Ian has a lot of interests and hobbies which makes our job of deciding what to focus on for the cookie designs a little easier. He is of South African decent and enjoys cycling, golf and his favorite new toy, a beautiful boat named Systhesis. We used several different cookie cutter shapes and royal icing colors in this set. To simplify your own custom set of cookies, you can use all one shape like a circle or rectangle. Our YouTube channel features a few examples of how to do it. Skip to the end of this blog post to see the YouTube video here of how we made Ian’s Birthday Cookies.
Supplies needed to make Ian’s Birthday Cookies:
- Classic sugar cookie recipe
- Royal icing recipe in colors: red, yellow, blue, white and green
- Cookie cutters: hexagon, circle, golf bag, 3-tier wedding cake, 3-letter banner, bicycle and rectangle
