Every year I bake sugar cookies for the crab feed at my mother-in-law’s church. They host a dessert live auction. My silly grandpa-in-law bids on (and wins) them every year. Haha…
I do something different every time. You can see the past years’ cookies here and here.
This year I was stumped for an idea. UNTIL I went to another crab feed and saw these adorable headbands the volunteers were wearing. They looked something like this. I immediately knew what I was going to make and which cutter I was going to use.
Here is my sketch… Do you recognize the cutter?! It’s a Christmas light bulb!
I outlined with a thick black line (buttercream)…
…then filled them in with a dark bright red.
These couldn’t be any easier. Which worked out well for baking with a tiny baby in the house. More time for snuggles!
