Sunny Days Chasing the Clouds Away

Posted by Anne Yorks on Tuesday, March 6, 2012

We are a PBS family. Not only does Topher work for a PBS affiliate (WPSU), we just love the shows and lack of commercials. And, of all the shows, I love Sesame Street the best. It's one of those shows that adults can enjoy with their kids. Have you seen the Shape-O-Bots episode with Andy Samberg. It's so, so great! An instant classic IMO.

We are taking the girls to see Sesame Street LIVE next week at the Bryce Jordan Center. We are going with 3 other families...this could be super nuts!

I have done Sesame Street characters in the past, but this was the first time I did a cookie with multiple characters on one cookie. It was a little tougher than I anticipated. Thankfully, I kept my focus and finished these special cookies for a little guy's 2nd birthday. 

I made a bunch of two cookies to go with the character cookie.

I had originally planned to put dots and stripes on the twos, but the icing dried so beautifully. Look at that gorgeous sheen. A cookie decorators' dream. So I left the two alone and enjoyed it's simple beauty.

I think the face of Big Bird was the biggest challenge of this project. Her face has 7 colors. But the colors weren't the challenge. The beak was what got me worked up. Getting the top of the beak just right almost drove me bananas.

The cookie was personalized with the birthday boy's name and age.

Overall, I think patience prevailed and the cookie was a success. 

Of course, when you're two, you just want to eat it, right? What a cutie!

Have a sweet day,
