Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! COOKIES!

It wasn't until a few weeks ago that I even learned what a Wubbzy was (I'm old). My cousin's little girl, Violet (don't you LOVE that name?), was turning 3. Her party was Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! themed and she needed Wubbzy  cookies.

To tell you the truth, I was a little crushed that kids weren't watching Blue's Clues anymore. You see, Steve and I had a relationship. Some days, he was the only adult contact I had until my husband got home...and he and I became *thisclose*.  (Then he left and they brought Joe on board, who might have been cuter, but didn't have Steve's charm. But I digress.)

Back to Wubbzy....character cookies make me nervous. Just look at Batman. So, I took the chicken's way out and used my icing printer.

But, I think the key to these cookies is the sprinkles.

I really like edible image cookies with a decorative edge. That's probably because I never get them on exactly centered.  Here's an example of edible image cookies with a piped edge.

If you don't have an icing printer, you can usually have them printed for you at a bakery supply shop...call ahead, you'll probably need to format the image for them. I've even heard you can get them from the grocery store!

Just cut the images and peel away from the backing and place on wet royal icing.  Allow 2 days of drying time. For the sprinkles, mix equal parts meringue powder and water. Brush on the edges and sprinkle. Voila!

Happy birthday, Violet!

Now, I'm going to check hulu for my old friend Steve.

  2. These are adorbale!!! My kids love Wubzy! Where did you get your icing printer??? I have been looking for one. Also, Steve went to rehab, and now he is a musician who sings songs on Nick Jr. See link: http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=1904714035
    :) Love the cookies!

  3. I love the edible images! I was scared of them when I first tried them, but they're easy! And you're right, the border makes it all come together.
    I think I might have to go and get my own printer :)

  4. Your cookies are gorgeous.

    However, I feel like I must tell you Steve was running around on you. . .with me. :)

  8. These are soooo adorable Bridget!!...I want to print edible images!!

    Thanks for linking up!!

  9. Love, love, love this cookies!!

    Wubzy...not so much. He's weird and talks really annoying. But he came across surprisingly well in cookie form!!

    And I'm with you on Steve. My son was all about Blues Clues awhile back, and I was not a happy camper when Joe came on the scene.

    I pine for an icing printer and would LOVE any info on what type you recommend and where you bought yours. (and how expensive)

    Thanks!!

  10. I am with you Bridget, I ♥ Steve and Blues Clues! Love these cookies! I haven't tried this yet, but considering getting one. What do you think of the taste of the cookie with the sheets applied?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Don't know anything about the Wubzy but I do know that I 'wub' the looks of these cookies. You scored again Bridget!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I agree with everyone else. I loved Steve & Blues Clues! You're cookies turned out great. The image is so clear & crisp!

  13. I had a relationship with Steve too... but really it was really short lived because he left shortly after I met him and then it was just me and Joe. Ironically, my daughter is now very partial to Joe. Sometime she cries when Steve comes on instead of Joe.

    Guess we have similar taste?

    All that said. Love the cookies. Makes me want to get a printer for decorating too.

  14. So cute, love them!

    I haddn't heard of Wubbzy before, and long & gone are the days when my boys used to watch Blues Clues... sigh. (Someone is getting old)

  15. SOOOOO cute. Don't show them to E or she would eat them all!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I don't know "Wubbzy," but these are cute cookies!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Violet sure loved these cookies!! She told me just the other day that those were "HER FAVORITE COOKIES!!!"

    ReplyDelete
  18. I wanted to ask if you know of a reputable company that prints online (before I call the dozens of bakers in my area). These look so much fun, I would love to get a printer of my own eventually.

  19. I always learn something new from you, and not always about cookies. Wubbzy? Who knew?!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I also like Steve more that Joe... Joe grew on me, but I was not welcoming at the start! AND, I know what Wubzy is now... and now that I've seen these cookies I'm wondering how Wubzy cookies can fit in with a Rocket theme for kiddos birthday... hmmmm

  21. Those are so cute!!

    I didn't care for Joe much. Steve was way better!

    ReplyDelete
  22. My son, who is now 11, was totally stressed when Steve went to college (so was I). We have to agree with you on Joe, but now my 5 year old is a Wubbzy fan. Interestingly enough, I used to actually watch Blues Clues with my oldest son, but Wubbzy with my youngest? Not so much. At least I could make him a Wubbzy cookie or two:)

  23. I've never heard of these either. And I'm not that old :P

    ReplyDelete
  24. These are so cute Bridget. My kids are between 7-17 yrs. old, and I have no idea what a Wubbzy is...gonna have to go google it! They loved Blues Clues also.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I remember when I first heard you talk about an icing printer; nice to see it in action! Adorable cookies.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I too had a relationship with Steve~ I do miss him so..but some reason the kiddos these day love wubzy~ these are adorable and I know they were a big hit ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Those are great! I am sure she was thrilled.

    I laughed when I read what you said about Steve from Blues Clues..I know exactly what you mean..lol..and no, Joe just wasn't the same:)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Perfect little cookies!! Im sure Violet (YES i loved the name!!) loved them.

    Have a great Sunday!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Those cookies are SOOOO cute! I have no idea what a Wuzzby was either, (thanks for the crash-course!)

    I guess I really should pull out the edible ink printer I ordered and try this for myself! I am just so intimidated by it! :(

    Tell me that I can do it! Please! :)

  30. Cute cookies, what a great idea!! My boys like Wubbzy too....but they LOVE Blue's Clues!! We still watch it in our house...re-runs on Nick Jr.!! In fact my 4 year old sleeps with a stuffed Blue, Magenta and Periwinkle every night.

    ReplyDelete
  31. We've got a Wubzy daughter as well. She did like Blue's Clues but grew out of that a couple of years ago. She'd adore those cookies. I love the border as well. You're so talented.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I MISS Steve from Blue's Clues!! I thought he was just so cute!
    These are super cute (even though I've actually never heard of these Wubbzy people...)! I love the rainbow sprinkles- I have some and can't wait to use them!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Is there something wrong with the fact that, at age 25, rainbow sprinkles still make me all giddy inside? These are SO fun! Now all I need is a good excuse to make 'em...

    ReplyDelete
  34. Bridget-I got lost after Big Bird :) Sooo cute!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hahah- I feel the exact same way about Blue's Clues! My 13 year old looooved Steve and Blue. Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper (french accent)! Gorgeous cookies= talent!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love the cookies and I too loved Steve. Aahhh the days.

  37. Any tips to getting the icing images to lay flat instead of curling up on the edges? I'm guessing my flooding icing is a bit on the watery side.

    ReplyDelete
  38. how do you use a pic. on top of the cake ?!?!? O.O

    ReplyDelete
  39. O.O!!!
