My daughter decided to throw a lumberjack themed first birthday party for my first grandchild. While planning it, we decided that it would be fun to add smaller cookie toppers to the cupcakes. I had never done this before, but I was excited to try it out.
My inspiration for cupcake pick cookies came from seeing this sign cutter and thinking that I could make a wood grain sign and personalize it for Finn's birthday.
But then, I couldn't just stop there. (I rarely ever do....) I added some additional smaller cookies that would fit well as toppers too..... two different evergreen trees, an axe, and a small simplified lumberjack face.
Cupcakes and decorating with buttercream icing is not my forte, but I always give it my best shot with each family event. These were made a little easier by adding decorated cookies to the cupcake tops. Now that's something I can handle!
And they were a big hit. People loved getting BOTH a cupcake and a cookie when choosing a treat.
And best of all......it was a grand and wonderful party for my sweet first born grandson, Finnegan Asher.
