I am a cookie decorator/artist. I am far from a cake decorator, but I can manage. Since I have no idea what I am doing with modeling chocolate or fondant, I decorate with cookies! This is a set of cookies I made for my son’s 2nd birthday party. I used all of the character cookies to decorate his cake and the #2 and Zachary cookies were for the cake and for party favors. I was really happy with how all of the cookies came out.
Of course you know Mickey Mouse!
And his lovely leading lady, Minnie Mouse!
His best buddy, Pluto!
His loveable pal, Goofy!
The trouble maker, Donald Duck!
And Donald’s favorite lady, Daisy Duck!
These are the cookies I made for the cake, but also made a bunch of them as party favors!
The whole Gang!
All in all, I am happy with the cake. We had terrible hot stormy weather that wreaked havoc with the humidity and my icing. So I was unable to get a smooth finish to the icing. But I guess, it made me realize that I just liked how much I really liked having the cookies on the cake. No one really noticed how bad I thought my icing looked, because they loved the cookies and how I decorated the cake with them!
So keep in mind if you don’t want to pay a fortune for a gorgeous cake, I can always make cake decoration cookies and cake toppers that you can add to any cake! Make your own cake or order a plain one at your grocery / bakery for less and then decorate it with my cookies!
As always, I love to hear from you and what you think! Comment below, or check out my website or facebook!
