Graduation Hat Cookie

This is a better view of my graduation caps. I like this is a cute little cutter, but it is very easy to break off the tassle. I chose to use the traditional black cap in my bouquet to add additional color to the bouquet. These are done in the school colors.

Happy Graduation!

Graduation Cookie Bouquet

Graduation Cookie Bouquet, originally uploaded by gensler97.

I made this cookie bouquet for a friend's graduation party. I had already made them 3 dozen cookies they asked for and decided I wanted to make them something special to go with it.

I have started using thick bamboo skewers that I found at Wal-Mart for my cookie bouquets. They are just as sturdy as cookie sticks, and longer. Also, the price is less than a dollar for a big bunch on them. Sorry I can't remember if there are 100 in the package or not, but it is between 50 and 100. They are also a little thinner, which makes it much easier to slide into a cookie. The pointed end helps out when sticking them into the cookies because you don't have to be as careful not to make a hole in the cookie.

Volleyball Cookies

I love how these volleyball cookies turned out. I have been wanting to try them and finally got a chance. I think they are my favorite sports ball. It definitely looks like a volleyball. I played around with them and found 3 lines to be the perfect look. Four lines were just too much for this size cookie. I also love that they are blue. You can do white, which is traditional, but why not have fun with the colors.

Fiesta Cookie Bouquet

Fiesta Cookie Bouquet, originally uploaded by gensler97.

Loved this cookie bouquet. At first I had no idea what to make for a fiesta theme. I used several different cutters that were other shapes and cut or smooshed them into the shape I needed. I used a cowboy hat for the sombrero, a rattle for the maracas, and a horse for a pinata. Loved the colors for fiesta cookies! One problem I ran into with the maracas is that the red started to run I think because of the heat generated inside the bags. I had a few others not in bags that did not run at all. The pinata is my personal favorite.

Princess Crown and Dress Cookies

These cookies went along with the castle cake I made for my daughter. I wanted them to be blue for cinderella, but I wanted them to be much simpler. I loved the sweet accents on these dresses and the belt made them complete. I made these a week later and added a belt to the dresses with the dots and wished I would have done it to these also.

Cinderalla Carriage Cookies

Cinderalla Carriage Cookies, originally uploaded by gensler97.

These cookies were made to go with a Castle Cake for my daughter. I found the design on and had to add them to the list of cookies. The top decorations were suppose to be yellow, but I was feeling a little lazy and tired when I just went for white. The wheels kept falling off until I made the icing really thick to glue them on.
