I recently had an opportunity to bake and decorate cut-out cookies for a neighbor’s daughters’ birthday party. It was a combined birthday for both daughters, with a princess theme (Sofia the First to be exact) and a veterinarian theme. I baked 8 dozen cut-out cookies and prepared the cream cheese frosting so the birthday girls and their guests could decorate the cookies during the party. I also baked and decorated 90 cookies as party favors. I had so much fun baking and decorating! And the kids had a great time decorating their cookies at the party!
I used the butter cookie recipe that I wrote about in my December 10, 2012 post. I iced and decorated the party favor cookies with royal icing. The cream cheese frosting that I made for the kids to use is a very basic recipe that I quickly pulled off the internet – butter, cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar.
