The festive mood inspires even amateur bakers like me! I made a Cookie Bouquetfor a friend’s daughter’s birthday with Deeba’s sugar cookie recipe; A very simple and easy-to-make recipe. Thanks Deeba for the recipe and many others from your blog which inspire me to bake!
I had fun decorating the cookies and making the bouquet.The cookies were decorated with colorful icing recipe from here and sprinkled with colored sugar.
I made a batch of chocolate sugar cookies too to save on my decoration time since I made around 70-80 cookies; just used simple silver dragees for the chocolate cookies.
For the bouquet I inserted wooden skewers as the cookie ‘stems’ into the cookies before baking. After cooling them I wrapped each one with small cellophane bags and sealed them with small red ribbons.I used a cute embroidered pink pen holder for the bouquet base; Inserted some garden sponge to hold the cookie stems. I cut thin strips from a green craft paper to cover the garden sponge.
This is my first of the 7 posts for the Blog Marathon initiated by Nupur (and also my first Auto-scheduled post since I am traveling upto 27th!) Thanks Nupur for motivating me to post on this much neglected space!
