You Say It's Your Birthday...

Today is my sister's birthday. No, I didn't make cookies for her...we're heading to Ben & Jerry's later for chocolate chip cookie sundaes...oh, yay! :)

These are cookies I made for her "girls' night out" party before she got married. I know...pretty sexy! ;) I used my gingerbread lady and man cookie cutters and had to nip them in at the waist quite a bit.

To make them...

  1. Outline basic "outfit"...bra and panties or nightgown using a #2 tip in your choice of color.
  2. With another #2 tip, outline body in flesh tone. (AmeriColor Copper/Fleshtone)
  3. Thin outfit icing to the consistency of syrup. Cover with a damp cloth and let sit several minutes. Stir gently to pop bubbles that have formed on top. Pour into a squeeze bottle and fill in outfit. Use a toothpick to coax the icing into all corners and to edges.
  4. After filling in about 6 to 8 outfit, add dots in thinned icing, if desired.
  5. Using the same method as above, thin and flood body in flesh tone.
  6. Let dry at least one hour.
  7. Using a #1 tip, add details to outfits, such as "dot" straps.
  8. Using a #1 tip, add curly hair. (Spectrum Chocolate Brown was used here.) For an example of straight hair, click here.
  9. Again, using a #1 tip, pipe a heart-shaped mouth in red. (Spectrum Super Red)

Happy Birthday, Molly!
