Ok, I’m going to admit something that an adult female should probably not admit, but here it goes…. I love to play Mario Kart! I have a friend in another state that also enjoys the game as much as I do. Every once in a while we set up a time to play Mario Kart together over the wi-fi.
Because this friend is my biggest supporter as far as my sugar cookies adventure, I wanted to make her some special sugar cookies for her birthday. So I decided to make her some – can you guess…. some Mario Kart sugar cookies!
The same week I did the college logo sugar cookies for work, I got a call from someone at the local college (Dixie State College) to see if I could do cookies of their logo for a special meeting. Here is what the logo looks like:
Seemed simple enough….until I started looking for a D cookie cutter. I searched and searched but could not find one in the same shape. I had seen kits online where you could make your own cookie cutter so I decided to order the kit and make my own D cutter.
A cookie that I thought would be so simple to do, turned out to be an excellent learning experience. I learned how to make a cookie cutter and I learned more about the importance of the consistency of the icing.
Because I was so concerned about the bleeding, I made the red and blue icing a little thicker than normal, even though I had planned to let the blue and red icing dry at least 12 hours before adding the white. Because it was thicker, it didn’t lay as nicely on the cookie as I like. I also made the white icing thicker, again because I was concerned about the bleeding. The other thing I found is that I had a lot more air bubbles resulting in little holes in the icing on some of the cookies.
Having said that, here is how the cookies turned out:
