Sixtieth Birthday Cookies

I made some cookies for Sally’s sixtieth birthday.

The request was, “black, hot pink, white, classy, birthday”

I used this sugar cookie recipe and this glaze recipe.


I found a picture of a flower that I liked so I made a rough sketch of it.

I have no idea if it’s classy or not… asking me to define classy can be hit or miss.

Mostly miss.


Then I tried something new.

I think the cookies are ok but they did not turn out like I had hoped! The swirly outside design is actually continuous “60’s” around the edge.


Can ya see it? (I feel like I say that a lot)

It might have turned out like I had envisioned if I had a steadier hand… this is one of those designs that might work better with more practice.




Happy Sixtieth Birthday Sally! Hope you enjoy your cookies!

    very sweet, and the color combination is adorable. Sorry if this Q has been asked, but when you do a white base, do you tint with white or just leave as is? The white in your pics looks nice and bright (but I know your recipe doesn’t call for vanilla, either).

    ok, so this is a site that I look at and want to lick my computer screen. (It would not taste good.) I cannot believe that you can make the pictures look so real and good. Thanks for showing them. (My hips thank you for not sharing with them.)
