Birthday Cookies from Bake at 350!

You only have until tomorrow to enter my GIVEAWAY- a $50 gift card to Williams-Sonoma! Click here for more info!

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, then you knew that I threw a cute little birthday party for my daughter who just recently turned two! I don’t know where the time went, but two years just flew by!

I wanted to make her party special, but at the same time not go over the top because after all, she is only turning two. So, as part of the goodie bags I gave all the guests, I made some of these darling cookies which I found over at one of my favorite blogs Bake at 350. Bridget {the owner and writer of that blog} makes tons of these cute cookies all time and I wish I had the time to make more of these because they are so stinkin’ adorable.

When it comes to this kind of stuff, I’m not that creative, so that’s why I check Bridget’s blog all the time. If you’ve never checked it out you need to go! I promise a few minutes of browsing will make you want to drop everything you’re doing and make cookies all day. I buy cookie cutters all the time now because I think “I bet Bridget has some cute cookies using these”. It’s what I tell myself to justify spending the money! HA!

The only drawback that these cookies have is it’s a long process- it’s intricate work and there’s a lot of waiting time! And for me having a busy toddler running around makes things a little difficult. If you have time though, then dive right in because these are not only cute, but they are so delicious too! Please oh please make these cookies! I love ‘em! It’s my new favorite sugar cookie recipe. For my daughter’s party, I had these decorated cookies for the guests, but I also had some plain cookies for the little girls to decorate themselves with some buttercream frosting and sprinkles. I think that was the favorite part of the whole party!

So, to make these fancier cookies, you have to make the dough {This cookie dough is so darn good! Seriously! Try it!} cut them out, bake them and let them cool. Then, you make the icing, pipe out the edges and let it dry completely. After that, you thin out the icing and flood the cookie {pictured below}. Then after that is dry, you can pipe on any additional finishing touches. When all is said and done the process of these cookies takes upwards of 48 hours. I didn’t  go into extensive detail, but the Bake at 350 blog really lays everything out so clearly! For a more in depth instructions for making these cookies look here!

Of course Bridget’s cookies look perfect and professional because she does this as her job. Overall, I’m very happy with how they turned out, especially with this being my first try! It’s a great activity for anyone to participate in and everyone has fun doing it! Even my husband got into it! How about that! Anyways, at some point you should make some of these cookies for a special occasion! Everyone loves them. If you want more info, head over to Bake at 350! Happy Wednesday!

    I’m so glad you had fun with your cookie decorating! The cookies turned out so cute! I love that tiered cake cutter…it is one of my favorites!

    And, you’re right….it IS a time consuming process, but one you see the finished product, you kind of forget that! ;)

    nicely done Lauren. I too fell in love with decorated cookies after discovering Bridgets site. I, however do not like royal icing. I think it tastes horrible, so I found an alternative. It’s a corn syrup icing. Looks and tastes great.
