I have another fun sneak peek into my new book, Smart Cookie, to share with you! These Fun Flower Cookies are adorable and simple to make, and I think they’d be fabulous for parties. Depending on what flower lollipops you use, you could switch them up with different seasons and colors.
Thanks to bakepedia for sharing these on their blog…
“These adorable flowers in flowerpots are made from purchased cookies and candies. Smart Cookie book is jam-packed with ideas using purchased cookies so that you can have all the fun of decorating and creating new, inventive treats. The Adorable Acorns are just as inventive.”
Even if you don’t have a green thumb, you can make this little flower garden grow! Don’t worry: If you don’t have the edible adhesive, you can just use drops of candy coating or a candy writer in its place. After your cookie flowerpots have set, add green candy coating to the center of the flowerpots. Just before that candy coating sets, place a sweet little flower lollipop into the center, just like planting a flower! Finish with green sprinkles and some sugar decoration leaves.
Smart Cookie Tip: These cookies are great for spring and would also be darling for baby showers, bridal showers, and birthday parties. Depending on the color of the lollipops you use, you could even create holiday versions.
You can order Smart Cookie now, at a great pre-order price of $12, on Amazon!
