Iced Sugar Cookies

This attempt turned out pretty well… surprisingly and thankfully.

It was one of my best friend’s birthday on Thursday so I made her a bunch of sugar cookies, symbolising things that I thought of when I thought of her. I usually avoid making icing, but the cookies needed them for some details; to my surprise, I made icing of the right consistency and it may have been royal icing. I think royal icing is that one where you can pipe something, let it set, and then it’ll be hard so you can fill in the outline with more details. But I was lazy and was only using white icing to draw stuff on, so that was a little useless.

Anyway, I think I’m really funny, so here we go:

The first set of cookies as dough (picture taken just in case they turned into big blobs; I thought the Gameboy was pretty cute)

Iced versions of the cookies. KD (carbs/pasta), lighting bolt (Harry Potter), women (feminism), Gameboy, Witch’s hat (Wicked), a bear…or Mickey Mouse…, two hands (it’s the symbol of Nerdfighters), alcohol, minivan, L (Longo’s symbol), basketball (because she’s tall), A on an assignment, … the Tardis… (I was too bad to write “Tardis” on it), soccer ball (the web-looking one), a nickle (family from Sudbury), a euro (where most of her travels are).

A really big spider; an offensive, stereotypical Asian.

After I piped the cookies that I had planned for her birthday (roughly 21 things), I cut out randomly-shaped cookies, either rolling into shapes or using cutters that I had, of turkeys or lambs. Because I think I’m really funny, I piped on inappropriate words and made cocks’n’balls:

I guess I could have taken that cookie out from the bottom left, since that was what I wiped icing onto when too much was spewing from the piping bag… and it looks sort of gross… But let’s pretend it adds to the theme of this set.

Cocks’n’balls, piles of poo, and fart!

“Fart” on a turkey, “Poo” on a sheep, “Ass” on a bear 😀

I had icing left over so I thought I would just squeeze it out onto the parchment paper and toss it out together. Turns out I had a lot more icing than I thought…

I had quite a bit of icing left after piping out “Penis!” and so I thought I would write out a nicer message. It turns out that my piping gets a lot worse when I’m supposed to be writing something less vulgar.

Most of the cookies, with the spare icing 🙂

For the cookies that I didn’t give to my best friend, I put them into our cow cookie jar. This is what you see when you take off the lid. Ha ha ha I am the best.
