Happy Independence Day! I wanted to come up with something fun and original to celebrate July 4th. Last year I saw a lot of American Flag cakes floating around the internet, but couldn’t wait to make one. I tried it out for President’s day and it was so patriotic! Then I needed a new idea and these bow cookies were the result!
Okay, I have a confession. This was not my original July 4th idea. I had a few others in mind that I just didn’t have time for. I originally planned to use these cookies for a baby girl cookie collection I had an order for, but decided not to include them. Since I had the blank cookies waiting to be decorated I decided to make them patriotic.
These cookies are a fun twist on the American Flag. I love how the red and white stripes look all lined up like this. I had to pipe on the white stars because I decided not to buy star sprinkles. I was spending way too much money at the craft store and convinced myself that I didn’t need more sprinkles. The stars came out okay, but white star sprinkles would have looked much better. Hey, at least I saved myself some money!
My son, Charlie, was enjoying his late night snack! I was taking cookie pics after his bedtime. I’m not sure why he was up so late, but since he was I gave him a cookie to enjoy. I think he’s giving the cookie a thumbs up!
Happy 4th of July! Hope it’s a sweet one!
