M’s 4th Birthday Fire Truck Cookies

Last month I posted about N's birthday cookies. Her brother's birthday is this month. When they were here enjoying N's cookies, I had the batch for M's birthday celebration on March 2nd in the freezer. I didn't mention it to him.

Last Thursday morning my sister-in-law called. She said she had asked M what kind of cake he'd like when we get together with the family for his birthday. He declared that he'd like "Auntie Sarah's cookies with the hard icing on top." So my SIL was calling to see if that was a possibility. I confessed about my pile of Ms, 4s and fire trucks* waiting to be iced.  Here's the finished product:

four fire trucks for M's 4thIt took me about an hour and 45 minutes to color the icing and decorate these dozen cookies.  (This doesn't count the time to actually make the icing, or to make and bake the cookies.) I continue to enjoy wet-on-wet decorating (used on the Ms and 4s). I'm also starting to try more designs that involve flooding one color against another color, like I did for the red on the truck around the white windows. (My most intricate example of this so far was the Rapunzel cookie.) Here are some more pictures:

*Turns out I had made truck cookies, not fire truck cookies. Ah well, iced them as fire trucks anyway.  :-)

      Thanks. It's always fun when the kids appreciate my work. Reminded me of when The Boy wanted me to make a small pillow with pillow case for S's 3rd birthday after I'd just made them for him and the cousins.

    This goes to show you that children totally understand the value of 1) making 2) aesthetic 3) keeping up with the siblings. In this case though, I'm also going to assume the cookies are TASTY!

      Thanks, Sharon. The Girl and The Boy are already talking about their birthday cookies. "Me birthday cookies," she said to me with a hopeful look. I explained that I planned to make lady bug cookies for her party. She was pleased with that plan.

      Thanks. The ladders were delicate... I broke one putting them in the box. No more transporting cookies that have ladders hanging off the ends. ;-)
