There’s something really wonderful about getting a thoughtful, handmade gift. But if you’ve already got an extensive collection of macaroni necklaces and popsicle stick picture frames, this year we suggest steering your wee ones toward the kitchen to whip up an edible surprise—and this great idea from Meaghan Mountford at The Decorated Cookie is just the ticket.
These cute custom cookies are ideal junior chefs, who can easily customize batches of cookies with Mom’s favourite things, Grandma’s favourite things, and even sweet messages and doodles for a special caregiver.
What you’ll need:
• Sugar cookies
• Royal icing
• Edible food markers
You’ll find all the details for making these “All About Mom” cookies (including Meaghan’s recipes for sugar cookies and royal icing) over at The Decorated Cookie.
