Finn's Birthday Fleet Decorated Cookie Collection

It’s hard to believe…..but my first grandchild is turning two years old! Wow. When you think time flies by……you realize that you’ve underestimated it in a big way. I’ve also heard that time moves faster the older you get. Oh boy….

Finnegan Asher was born two years ago in November 2016. He was 6 weeks premature and in the NICU for 9 days. But he was strong and healthy….and came home to outgrow any time he might have been “behind”.

Now he is an active curious boy…..that doesn’t leave anything unturned. haha He is busy busy busy…..and so fun to watch.

Finn’s favorite thing right now is CARS! He loves them…..all kinds….actually anything with wheels. So it seemed perfect to get out this set of cutters and wheels to make a bunch of his favorites.

Happy Birthday Finnegan! 🎉 Grammy loves you so much. ❤️

His favorite……Lightening ‘Queen :)

Emmy (my granddaughter) got in on the car cookies too.

Finn was kind enough to allow Emmy to try out his Lightening McQueen slippers. :)

Awww…..I love these two so much. ❤️

Shirt & Tie Decorated Cookie (Tutorial)

Shirt & Tie Cookies work well for a variety of special occasions. A friend asked for this theme to celebrate a milestone in her son's life.

Several shapes can be used for this cookie. I used coat shaped cutter for the full long sleeved version (not able to link the cutter here). You could also use a plain rectangle cookie.

My favorite shape was achieved by cutting the bow loops off of SugarBelle's gift cutter using the curved edger also found in the ShapeShifters set. (see photo below)

Since the dress shirt is white, the easiest way to decorate these cookies is all in white glaze.....adding all the details including the tie in layers (with dry time in between).
(see video for details)

 

Once the glaze has dried overnight, use food color markers to color the ties.

Fairly simple.....and definitely fun. :)

Pirate Ship Decorated Cookie (Tutorial)

Oh the pirates...... my first grandbaby has a baby room decorated in a pirate theme.
So naturally the baby shower was also themed in pirates.

Every pirate must have a ship to sail, right?

A chubby oval shape works perfectly for this pirate ship.

Using a tiny round cutter (or other circle template) and a black marker, make the portholes on the lower half of the cookie.
I used a 1/2" circle cutter to outline the circles using Sugarbelle's template markers, and then I filled them in with an Americolor black marker.

Outline & flood the bottom 2/3 of cookie with brown glaze (be sure to outline the portholes too).
(see photo below)

Add a brown mast from the center of the ship to the top of the cookie.
Allow it to dry for 1-2 hours.
Then add the large white sail and the smaller black sail. (see photo below)

If desired, add red stitch lines around the white sail, blue scallops on the bottom of the ship to represent waves, and paint a skull-crossbones on the black sail with Americolor white gel.

Ahoy matey...... you're ready to sail. :)
