Eclectic Cookies

I had trouble naming this post because these cookies do not fall into one particular category. A friend asked if I could make some cookies for his daughter’s birthday. She is graduating high school this year and will be leaving for the Air Force. He told me that she loves penguins and pandas. I had this cute girlie idea in my brain for how I was going to decorate them. Well the idea changed when he asked if I could throw in some skull & crossbones and dead bunnies (yes I was thrown off by this). He wanted the cookies to be cute but not too girlie. He also said absolutely no pink and requested the colors black, white, blue and purple.

I’m not sure if my friend’s daughter would label herself goth but she has her own unique style. When I was in high school the “different” kids were called “alternative” and I was one of them. I used to wear combat boots with dresses. This is why this set of cookies was something I wanted to do and I found the theme quite interesting. This is what I came up with. I hope she likes them. I think they’re cute and girlie but not too girlie (in hindsight I probably should have made the purple and blue darker for an edgier feel). The bunny is not so much a dead bunny but more like a rag doll bunny. I’m not really into gruesome.

I’ll be back with tutorials for these cookies tomorrow.

***Update*** She loved the cookies!! 馃檪
