As mentioned before, Brandon in obsessed with cupcakes. He is having a giant cupcake birthday cake, and I have all kinds of cupcake decorations. But for his snack day at school, I wanted to do something a little different. While he loves his cupcakes, sometimes those bite size morsels of cake and frosting can be quite messy for three year olds. So for his snack at school, I have made cupcake cookies. The icing is hardened and sure to be less of a mess for the teachers. Also this recipe is peanut free, which we always keep in mind due to an allergy in his class.
I followed the same steps as previously posted in ghostly treats. The only difference is I used cupcake cutter. I piped the royal icing border and let it dry for about an hour. Then I flooded the cookie with the white icing for the top and allowed it to dry for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, I tinted the icing for the wrapper portion of the cookie blue (Brandon's favorite color), and allowed the icing to rest to minimize air bubbles. Finally, I flooded the bottom of the cookie and allow to dry overnight before wrapping in treat bags.
Check back on Wednesday for a sweet smoothie and on Thursday to see Brandon's birthday bash!
