Necktie Cookie (on a stick) for Father's Day

When I was a child, my gift giving for my dad on Father's Day alternated between two classics:  Old Spice After Shave Lotion and neckties:) Though not very original, my dad did use Old Spice everyday and as an accountant he wore a tie to work each day also. I was just helping him out and he was always appreciative:)

I thought it would be fun to make a sugar cookie version of this fatherly symbol~on a stick of course! This way dad can "wear" a tie without any discomfort and then enjoy munching on it afterward:)

So, is your dad more brains than brawn, or is it a TIE?  I couldn't resist:)

FYI: Necktie cookie was made using a cutter purchased from Copper Gifts and my favorite sugar cookie/ royal icing recipe.  Insert stick into cookie before baking. I used orange and sky blue Wilton gel  for the icing colors.

  3. I'm going to assume that it is your husband in this picture...totally neat that he would pose for your cookie shot! What a sweetheart and what a nice tie. (Even if it's not your husband...still a sweetheart LOL)

  4. You are SO creative!!! My dad was totally a tie guy...only his ties had hardware tools, cartoon characters, and holiday patterns. My pride always died a little as a kid when he wore them--now we proudly buy them for him! :)

  5. My sister-in-law made these after they got engaged with notes attached asking the guys to be groomsmen and then she made dress shaped cookies for the girls with notes asking them to be bridesmaids.

  7. How cool are these?!?! I made sugar cookies last weekend and attempted to decorate them all pretty like. Man! I have even more respect and admiration for your cookie frosting skills now. It was so stinkin' hard!

  8. Best. Picture. Ever. I just love it. I posted a link on Edible Crafts because I just couldn't help it (but if your tie model would prefer to not be featured so prominently over there, I'll of course take it down!)

  47. Your cookies on a stick are so fun. I love this one. My dad always wanted socks and shirts and when he passed away 16 years ago he had a drawer full of unopened shirts! This post made me think of him.

    Your photo is great too - this should be in a women's magazine somewhere.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Always, amazing me... you are!!!!

  49. So cute! This is some gift a man would expect: pleasant to the eye and edible :-)

    Very clever photo that triggers a smile and warmth at heart....

  50. What a great idea! We made 120 decorated cookies for the church moms for Mother's Day, and the dads were jealous. I had planned on doing traditional drop cookies for them for Father's day. We may have to do something like this instead!!

  51. so cute! Scrolling though my reader trying to catch up from a week of being out of touch.

    This is such a clever idea!

  52. These are adorable! Glad Diane pointed them out, perfect for Father's day or even just an 'anyday' surprise for devoted dads. :)

  53. These cookies look yummy and adorable! I showcased them in my Father's Day Ideas with a link back to you. Thank you for sharing.

  54. All of the women in our church bake cookies for the men on fathers day and then mix up a variety bag to hand out to each father after the service. I think I may do this, but my mom's in town and I'm not sure this is what I need to be doing this weekend.

  55. I love the Tie Cookie Pops - so does my boyfriend I think he's jonesing for some :)

    Thanks for sharing! I have featured you in a tie-riffic round up for Father's day!
