Hollywood Graduation Party

Posted by Anne Yorks on Thursday, June 7, 2012

It's graduation season and that means it's also a busy cookie season! I enjoy making the diplomas and hats and balloons. But, I was so excited when my customer contacted me with this Hollywood themed graduation and birthday party idea. Her sister was turning 19 on her graduation day. Take a peek at the cookie favors created for sweet Juliet on her special day!


Golden statue award cookies with the graduates name. I outlined the body of the man and sprayed him gold. Then I went back and added the muscular detail with a golden yellow icing. I love the texture and contrast of colors to create this cookie.

Here is the set all together. A few star cookies, a director's clapper board cookie, a mask, and a marquee cookie made this order complete.

My favorite cookie of the group was this marquee cookie. My customer requested the birthday girl's name on the cookie and I added the 'Class of 2012 Presents'. I thought it was a nice, personal touch.

I love this photo because it shows the layers of icing on the cookie. 

I made quite a few star cookies to go with this order, both gold and yellow. I added a black border to the gold star to really make it pop and I love the effect it had. The font on the cookie was assisted by my friend KopyKake. Not sure if I could exactly replicate that fancy font over and over and over on my own :).

The director's clapperboard cookie cutter was ordered from my friends at Coppergifts.com. They are really wonderful - excellent copper cookie cutters and phenomenal customer service. Special thanks to them for making this order easy to create! I really don't like cutting cookies by hand, especially for a larger order.

I wish Juliet nothing but the best for her future. And a super special thank you to her sister for the awesome graduation order idea!!

In case you missed, a few friends and I did a fun wedding themed project using the May 2012 Brides magazine...check it out if you want to see some really beautiful cookie projects!!

    Please oh please tell me you photoshopped these and that’s the only reason they look so perfect! Even if you didn’t, tell me you did just to give me some hope…a small taste of consolation.

    OMG these are awesome. I love the marquee ones too, fantastic. The oscars came out amazing. You must have the patience of a saint.
