Bicycle Cookies

A young boy I know asked if I would contribute some cookies to his Bicycle Safety  Fair. The Fair  is the crowning event toward earning his Eagle Scout award.  He told me that I could make any kind of cookies that I wanted, but of course bicycle cookies were the logical choice.
I hope he liked them! I didn't get to talk to him when I dropped them off due to all  the hubbub.
The cookies were made using my favorite sugar cookie recipe with royal icing, both recipes found on this post.
I  used my new AmeriColor Super Red and Super Black Soft Gel Paste Food Coloring, and as you can see they worked great!  I love them!
All bagged up with coordinating ribbon and ready to roll! :)

  20. You did a fabulous job :) And I love the coordinating ribbon. How difficult is it to control the icing when doing such a detailed design. I've always wanted to try my hand at this type of thing.
    Hugs!

  23. This is the first time I've ever seen a bicycle, both a cutter and the decorated cookie. You did a fantastic job. The young boy must have been so excited when he saw the cookies! Love all your attention to detail in these and the colour. Who didn't want a shiny new red bike when they were a kid!?

  29. These are great! My husband and 28 year old son just finished a bike repair course together. Hubby is out right now working for a local charity that is repairing unwanted bikes and rescuing bikes from the landfill to provide bikes to low income families, schools and even a dozen to the zoo to help the employees get around! I can't wait to show them your cookies!

  30. WOW Sue! These are amazing! Everything is SO neat. I mean...if I tried to pipe circles for the tires of ONE bike...it wouldn't be a circle. Much less that many of them. I love that there is just enough details on these cookies!

  31. I feel like a broken record, but your treats are always so cute cute cute! The piping is so perfect!

  32. Those bicycles are too cute! So, did you have a cookie cutter, or did you make your own again? You are very clever.
    Thanks for visiting my blog! :)
