Birthday Cookies for Will

A special little boy is turning 6 years old this week. Little Will loves Power Rangers,Spider Man and the color blue.
Since I am not very talented in the Power Rangers department, I decided to make him something Spider Man related. No special cutters require!
I like these cookies because they are pretty easy to decorate and are the perfect alternative to character cookies, which sometimes are more time consuming. I do not have a Kopykake Projector and of course, I have no budget to get one any time soon, so this is my option to personalize birthday cookies.

To make this cookies, you will need the following cutters:

Balloon 3.75"
Letter "I" 3"
Letter "L" 3"
Letter "W" 3"

Another option for birthday cookies is using cutters like candles, cupcakes, candy and cake. When you stop by The Cookie Cutter Company website, you can see that they have a section for “birthday” , there you can find plenty of cutters that would make birthday cookies or any other celebration unique.

You will also need the following supplies:

.Royal icing in white, red and blue (stiff for outlining and details and also flooding consistency to fill the cookies)
.Black and blue sanding sugar
.Tip #1 and #2
.Squeeze bottles
.Couplers and decorating bag
.Black food writer

Alien balloons....

This awesome balloon cookie cutter makes the perfect alien's head.

1-I used the black food writer to draw the eyes
2-Using tip #2 and stiff icing I fill the eye’s area.
3-While the icing was still wet; I sprinkled them with black sanding sugar.
4-Outline and flood cookies with blue icing and set them aside to dry.

Spider Man Inspired name cookies...

.Outline the letters with black icing and let them dry for a few minutes.
.Flood the cookies with red icing and let them dry overnight.

To make the spider web: Use tip #2 and black icing. Draw four lines coming out of the corner of the letter and draw some lines with a slight dip toward the center to connect them.

The spider body is just a big dot of icing and the legs are six little lines coming off the body

Happy Birthday Will, I hope you like the cookies I made for you.

Have a great weekend everyone!
