Balloon Cookies (Tutorial)

When I set out to make cookies for the CookieCrazie 4th Birthday Party
I wanted to make some basic birthday shapes
to share here.

Every party needs balloons, right?!

What if you don't have a balloon cookie cutter?
No problem...


You can use a hot air balloon, an upside down Christmas ornament,
an Easter egg, or even a plain 'ole circle.

You'll need to squish the last three to make them look more balloon-shaped.

For these cookies you'll need 
Outline cookies with #2 round and let dry for 10-20 minutes.

Fill in each balloon with #4 round 
and add white reflection lines while still wet, if desired.

You can add various accents
like opening rims and strings if, if you like.

And you can have even more fun by adding
some real twine to the balloons for
added cute factor. ;) 
I love my twine from The Twinery


And to think that none of these balloons
were cut with a balloon cookie cutter.
Love it!
