Winnie the Pooh First Birthday Cookies

I love making character cookies. Dont get me wrong, they are really hard and take a lot of planning, time, and patience. But the wow-factor far out-weighs all of that.

These happy little Winnie the Pooh Sugar Cookies were made for a friend’s son’s first birthday party. I’m thrilled with how they came out! The Wilton Gel Food Coloring in Buttercup Yellow is the perfect shade for Pooh Bear. And the design idea for the number ones came from a Google image search of Winnie the Pooh party decorations. I made the cookie cutter with my R&M Make-Your-Own Cookie Cutter kit that I wrote about in a previous post {click here}.

The next picture below shows the order in which I piped and filled the faces. I started with the mouth and let it dry. Then I piped and filled the face. Once that was dry, I filled the ears and added the party hat!  

I drew the final details on with a black food marker (with edible ink). 

He is so cute!!

These are just the happiest little cookies I've ever made!
