just sugar and vanilla to surely please
cute decorated little blue fish
made especially for a baby’s first wish
Today I made fish sugar cookies for little Justin who is turning one.I decided to go with a simple design full of bright colors that will attract eyes of a one year old.
Cookie cutter that I have was too small so I had to make a template, I used simple decoration to make the outline and cut the template out of the plastic sheet. More on how to make cookie cutter templates using plastic sheets can be found here.
Using a basic sugar cookie dough (recipe) I hand cut these cookies.
My biggest concern was the high humidity we are experiencing right now. Royal icing and humidity are not the biggest friends as humidity can make a big mess out of sugar things. I used royal icing (step by step recipe), sky blue, lemon yellow, and red colors.
Once cookies were piped I place them under the running ceiling fan and that helped a lot to with drying, avoiding possible problems caused by humidity, like blotchy spots.
I’m pretty happy how these turned out and I hope Justin’s little hand will reach for the blue fish with yellow red spots.
Happy Birthday Little One.
