My son had hockey pictures this past weekend. The same weekend we made Reese cookies thingies, and Printed sugar cookies and gingerbread men cake pops. ( up next!) So I wanted something special, but I also wanted quick.
So here it is, something you can do quickly and let the kids decorate while you watch TV and eat a few cookies. Not like I did that, nope, I just ate one cookie.
So these are like any other simple sugar cookie. Just pick a shape, cut and bake. Then when cooled, ice them with glaze icing. I make my icing whiter with Americolor soft gel paste in white. It really makes a difference for when you are drawing, the colours will pop more. I also make sure to let them dry over night, so when you colour you are less likely to push the pen through the icing.
|Working hard. He was mad, the red pen ran out, oh the horror!|
|This was his first one, a summer scene, I did not have the heart to tell him it is now winter.|
|See? Sprinkles make everything better!|
|Just a few of his works of art, those ones on the top left are hockey guys, the rest, well mostly people and squiggles.|
|These were so small I was able to just use cake pop bags.|
I am so sorry I did not get the picture of the one he made for the Cake Boss, he drew a cake and wrote his name. So cute.
These would be great for a craft at a party or as a gift, with some edible pens. You can get Wilton brand at Michael's, and with a coupon not too costly. I like Americolor better, only because they have a finer tip.
