Quick Cookies- Ninja

I’ve never baked, made icing, and decorated all in one day.  It’s usually easier to let each piece of the cookie dry to ensure quality.  Since I had to quickly whip up some cookies for our friend, I made ninja cookies all in one day!

They were pretty cute (and still wet for the photos!) and were consumed just as quickly as they were made!

Going to the Chapel

Last December I made a bunch of diamond ring cookies for my sweet friend who was getting married.  I managed to fly them home, decorate them, and take turns at about 5 miles an hour all the way to the party!  They were my first go at a diamond ring cookie.  There are so many others out there (there’s really only one cutter that EVERYONE uses), but I thought the swirls were cute.Since it’s wedding season, I’ve been testing out a few other cookie ring looks!  I’ll share those soon!

Gender Reveal Cookies

We have friends who are due any day now with their first baby. They have managed to wait 9 months to find out the gender. I can’t imagine waiting that long. I’m just not that patient. Heck, I can hardly get a picture of the cookies dry before I eat at least one err, two or more of them. That’s why I love the “new” Gender Reveal parties people are having. I’m always up for a celebration, and these are a fun way to get the whole village involved, not just the ladies at a shower. I’ve seen blue and pink reveal cakes, balloons, confetti, and other way cute ideas on Pinterest.

In that spirit, I made a gender reveal cookie that would allow everyone at the party to participate. Everyone gets a cookie and bites into it at the same time! The inner-icing is pink or blue!

These could be in any shape- rattles, onsies, bees (what will it bee?), or any other theme! The top icing doesn’t even have to be white. The possibilities are endless.

I snagged this iphone photo before they were iced to show the bottom layer:photo(5)

And these are them covered!

For demonstration purposes only, I took a bite to show the inside:

I think because I knew which one was which, I felt like I could see the pink through the white! I would double layer the white next time just to make sure there was no “peeking.”
