Fake Sugar Cookies for Halloween
Before I begin my post, I have to mention my sweet friend Bridget from Bake at 350, who is the master at the perfectly decorated sugar cookie. If you ever need inspiration for sugar cookies, she’s your gal. Her book is an amazingly helpful tool and such a great resource.
I sometimes wish I had a little more Bridget in me. I think if I had the patience and if I knew that the perfectly decorated cookie also meant that I’d have a fun night with girlfriends or family, then I think I’d do it more often. With that said, these fake cookies are just for fun, just for looks. I love the cuteness of real sugar cookies, and these are a portion of the cuteness without all the work. And…they’re calorie free. 😉
These pretend cookies would be fun for pretend play, like playing kitchen or American Girl Dolls…something like that. I even think they are cute under a glass domed cake plate.
To make these cookies, I used cutting dies from Lifestyle Crafts. I wish I could link over to their site for the exact dies I used, but they were recently bought by another company and I’m not sure how to navigate it over there yet. You could always just trace and cut these out by hand. To make the cookies looked like they were baked in the oven, I just inked the edges with brown ink on the tan foam.
This would be a fun kid craft…and with Christmas just around the corner, Christmas cookies would be so cute!
