Let’s Celebrate!
I found a shape I liked though Google search, enlarged it, printed it and made a template.

then baked the cookies a little longer to brown them more because of the rainy weather here.

I used 2 types of dragees ~ pink metallic and pink pearls but not together.
 
Since I didn’t have pink sanding sugar and I thought that look might be too heavy for what I had envisioned anyway, I mixed clear edible glitter with red glitter and ground them up with my fingers to make finer grained sparkles. If you put glitter on wet icing it will dissolve. When the icing is dry, make a mixture of meringue powder and water and brush over the pink champagne part avoiding the dragees.
 
Sprinkle the glitter over the wet pink icing, lightly press and turn over and tap the cookie like you would for real glitter. It is done!
Brush on pearlized powder over the white icing for a luxurious glow.
 
Celebrate at every opportunity!

  1. You are so talented! And I love that you didn’t even have to buy a new cookie cutter to make them. Makes me think I am going to have to get some edible glitter and luster powder, though!

  2. Gorgeous!!!!
    Thank you for giving us all of the instructions!

  3. So, so clever and lovely!

  4. Those are fabulous!
    I’m going to get GradGirl to make your recipe, maybe for a bridal shower we’re attending next weekend. She’s the cupcake queen around here, but I’d love for her to try your cookies!

  5. Congratulations to your son, that is fantastic!! Sushi sounds great right now!
    Your cookies are so pretty! Are you sure you don’t have a secret bakery somewhere? If not, you should. I forgot to tell you I used this recipe for Christmas cookies and they were fabulous!
    Have fun tonight!
    XOXO

  6. I’d love to do these for the bridal shower for my sweet daughter-in-law to be. They are so wonderful.

    How long ahead to you think I could make them?

  7. Congrats to #1Son and his PhD program. That is huge!!!!

  10. Suzy Q ~ Thank you. I love the glitter and luster dust. You can buy metallic glitter to on line. πŸ™‚

    SJN ~ How cute would pickles and ice cream cookies be?

    Ronda ~ Thank you, Ronda, for the son shout out. The news had just come in and I was so excited I was about to burst! Glad you had good luck with the cookies.

    RNSane ~ Thank you. So glad you like them. You could make them weeks ahead and freeze unfrosted. I would make the glass stem thicker in diameter and just frost in more from the edge to give it more stability. If you really wanted to make certain there is no breakage, I might back the cookies with a slightly smaller card stock template and just dab in a couple places to hold it together. If I can help at all and you get stuff, send me an email and we’ll go from there. πŸ™‚

    Joanna ~ Thank you very much. He also got into Cal so perhaps he will make CA his home again. That is why I am really excited. Anyway, I would be honored if you book marked the cookies. Martini glass would be cute too. πŸ™‚
