A HUGE THANK YOU to Denise DeMarchis and Matilda Jane Clothing for the opportunity to create "It's a Wonderful Parade"-inspired cookie favors for your Trunk Keepers this season!  It was a tremendous cookie adventure designing circus cookies for the newest "It's a Wonderful Parade" collection, which I absolutely ADORE! To see the most precious spring 2014 Matilda Jane Clothing collection for stylish girls and moms, click here.  The colors and whimsical patterns set my creative cookie wheels a spinning and I haven't been able to stop making circus cookies for the past 3 months straight! :)  For additional information, photos, or cookie inquiries, please contact me through Facebook at Cookiesby Chrissy here.

There's still time to get those cookies ready for Santa...

If you haven't had time yet to start your holiday cookies baking, don't fret.  It isn't too late {yet}.  :)  

Get that oven toasty (bonus: it warms up your chilly house at the same time), get your sugar cookie dough made, and round up your favorite holiday cookie cutters.  Once you've gotten your cookies baked, and made your favorite royal icing, then the fun begins! Be as creative and festive as you like--after all, it's almost Christmas!  


If you're making red and black icings, make sure you have lots of food coloring gel in hand because these colors require a large quantity of gel to get the colors nice and merry.  {For the red I made here, I combined the no-flavor Tulip Red by Americolor, with Wilton's Christmas Red}. 

If you like the look of gingerbread cookies, but not the taste of gingerbread, make sugar cookies shaped like gingerbread boys, girls, moms, dads, grandmas, and grandpas.  

Gingerbread Cookies That Aren't Gingerbread at all...

Add a little chevron pattern to your gingerbread girl's dress to match the "chevron" stripes on her hands and feet and suddenly she's stylishly modern, { and yummy!}

The Elusive Moose Cookie

The moose cookie cutter I used to make the outdoor cookie platter here is one of my favorites, {there's just something happy about him}, but I gotta say, it isn't the easiest cookie cutter to use.  {A major understatement.} I must've bunched up at least 7 moose cookies, {hence the title}, before I actually managed to land 2  moose cookies on the cookie sheet to put in the oven.  If they hadn't been so stinkin' cute I probably would've given up.

After my two moose cookies were baked I was pretty happy.  That is, until one of the them broke.  Aw man.  I hate that when that happens.  No matter.  The cookie that broke sure was delicious and gave me enough courage to ice the lonely, elusive moose that was left...and ta-da, here he is in all his cookie splendor!
You can see the same cookie cutter featured here as the highlight of a wilderness themed birthday party by Dannyelle of "Life is a Party" in Ontario, Canada.

But, one moose cookie wasn't going to be a very impressive birthday cookie platter, so I wasn't done yet...

Every superhero is worthy of a cookie celebration in his or her honor. Superhero cookies can add a bit of POW! BAM! ZAP! to your superhero-themed birthday party, Father's Day celebration, or just a special, cookie treat for that comic book fanatic in your life.  

Now, I gotta say, pretty much all cookies make me smile, but there's something about primary colors, highlighted in black, that make these cookies scream to be noticed, {and then, "BAM!," eaten.}  In my world, cookie-power beats out will-power every time. Now that I think about it, maybe cookies are my kryptonite. If it's true, does that mean I have cookie exemption from all the calories eaten? I think that'd only be fair, don't you?

If you want to make some delicious cookies that make a statement, these are pretty wild {pun intended}, and surprisingly easy to make!  

Black-and-white is a striking, uber-fashionable, color combination.  One that never goes out of style.  Add in your favorite accent color, {like turquoise, tangerine, red, hot pink, or lime green}, and you'll have a unique, cookie platter that will get the party started! 

The best part is, you can make these cookies fairly quickly because you only need to make 3 colors of royal icing.
To make a zebra cookie platter, you will need:

The cookie cutters:
* balloon
* present
* heart
* mini heart
* square
* cupcake
