Cookie Party Favors- Surf's Up Baby Shower


I had the idea for quite a while that I wanted to make decorated sugar cookie surfboards for the party favors but really had no idea how. I did some research and decided to just jump right in and give it a try! I'm really pleased with how well they turned out!!  Sorry for all the pics... I can't help myself!









At first I just filled them, (which is called flooding) but I thought they looked a little too plain. Plus it didn't look as smooth as I wanted, so... I had to embellish!!  I went a little crazy with the dots... but it's cute!


Here's some of the cookies before I finished adding details.


Lastly, here's a picture of the entryway at the party where the favors were set out. I like how the mirror kinda gives you a sneak peak at some of the party decor!!  I'm breaking up the pictures into separate posts so stay tuned to see more!!


If you're interested, or even if you're not... I think it's right to site where the original idea came from and where I gathered my inspiration for these. So be sure to check out these AMAZING websites!! They are the reason I decided to try "flooding".


Bake at 350  *some of the coolest cookies I've ever seen! Check out the beer and hot dogs cookies!!

The Decorated Cookie   *GREAT tutorials to show you exactly what to do, including drawing diagrams!

I don't feel right about grabbing other people's photos, so be sure to check these out... they are the actual photos I based my cookies on.

Those are wonderful!!! Almost too cute to eat! lol I agree that they needed the extra embellishment. No, you didn't go too crazy on the dots. ;^) They were perfect and I'll bet I'm not the first person to tell you so!
