Who is YOUR Wonder Woman?

 
Who is your Wonder Woman?  Mom, wife, sister, aunt, cousin, daughter, friend?  I bet you have one.

I've always loved Wonder Woman and when I was younger, I dreamed of wearing a Wonder Woman outfit to a costume party.

{Now, at age 41, I don't see that happening....unless Wonder Woman starts donning capri pants and cardigans.}
 
And is it just me, or does that W look an awful lot like the Whataburger logo?  Maybe I *could* be Wonder Woman after all.  (And if you don't live in the south and don't know Whataburger, I'm sorry.  Really, really sorry.) 


The cookie shape itself was made from using 3 cutters I had onhand: bikini top, onesie and a circle for cutting.

First, I started with the bikini tops and the onesies.

The bikini top as is was a little "busty" for the onesie, so I performed a little reconstructive surgery.

Then, the top of the onesie was chopped off...

...and I made a cut out so that the top would fit.

I used the edge of a circle cutter to nip her in at the waist.  (If only life were so easy.)

And then, put the pieces together.

{Hint: I always freeze my cut-outs for 5-10 minutes before baking.}


For decorating, you'll need:



With a #2 tip, outline the shape in black.

{I originally started with a #3, because I wanted the outline to really show, but it was too thick.  If you make a mistake on a cookie, scrape it off and try again. :) Toothpicks are your friend.}

Thin the red, yellow and blue icings with water until it is the consistency of thick syrup.  Let sit for several minutes covered with a damp dish towel.  Uncover and stir gently with a silicone spatula to pop air bubbles that have risen to the surface.  Transfer to squeeze bottles.

Flood the cookie with the thinned icing.

Let sit at least one hour.

With a #2 tip, add the black detail.  Go over the "W" and the belt in black as well.

Let dry for several hours.  If you are a good planner, add the white star sprinkles you have onhand with a bit of royal icing.  If you are NOT a good planner, ahem,  pipe the stars with white royal icing.

OH!  I almost forgot!  I made the Invisible Jet, too!


And and you must (MUST!)....go take a peek at Gail's (of One Tough Cookie) superhero cookie CAKE!  Isn't that the coolest?!?

Who is YOUR Wonder Woman?

{Happy, happy Mother's Day to all of you moms (Wonder Women) out there!}

  7. I always wanted one of those invisible jet, and a set of those cuffs/wristbands, and of course the lasso of truth. She was tough and cool and knew how to fix hair, all in one.

  14. These are absolutely precious! I must say that my MOM is my Wonder Woman...and not just because mother's day is tomorrow. She's survived breast cancer and being run over by a drunk driver, then having spine surgery! I would say she has some supernatural powers.

    When I was a Flight Attendant, I had her on a flight once and ask her how it felt flying on a plane that wasn't invisible! CHEESY..LOL

  20. Wonder Woman TV show, coming soon... and she's wearing pants!
    More fitting for such a powerful lady (because really, the leotard look is not practical for crime fighting)
    I always love your cookies so much!

  21. Yes! It does look like the WHATABURGER logo! Chophouse Steakburger! Yumm!

  22. SUPERB!!!! I love Wonder Woman and I LOVE your page!
    Happy Mother's Day

  23. I have a question: why do you always use disposable bags? Is it the convenience of clean-up (throw away after use) or you don't like cleaning the reusable bags that you can dedicate for royal icing use?

    I usually use parchment bags for royal icing but I don't like not being able to change tips without making a big mess. I am considering on buying new bags for royal icing use only.

    What do you think?

  29. I think women in general are Wonder Woman; juggling family, careers and yes..blogs!

    Your creativity in pulling together those two pieces is the best and the end result is even better.

    Happy Mother's Day!

  33. So, um, perhaps I'm the only one to notice, but I clicked over because I thought for sure you used a naughty cookie cutter for these. Might make the dough cutting process easier. ;)

  35. Hey, do you think you could use one of those cookie cutters and make my waist nip in like that? And portion my body just right?

  55. Oh how fun! I just found your blog via Tastespotting and am in love with all of your fabulous cookie designs. Here I thought I was cookie-cut-out stupid, but I was just using the wrong technique! After following your delicious cookie recipe and icing tips I made my first batch of successfully decorated sugar cookies! Just wanted to say thank you and I'm excited to keep reading what you come up with. :)
