May Flower Sugar Cookies

April showers bring May flowers!  It’s May 7th, but today has been a gloomy, rainy day.  Hoping all this rain will bring us some beautiful flowers!  I made cookies today, and it couldn’t have been a more perfect day for it!   All used with items from our April box!  I started out with our Favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe that was included in our April box.  You can click here for it.  These are perfect for Mother’s Day!IMG_4631

Once the cookies have cooled, it’s time to decorate!!! 

You’ll need:

-umbrella and flower cutters from your April box

-ladybug and bumblebee edible sugars from your April box

-sugar pearls from your April box

buttercream icing tube from your April box

fondant from your April box

The buttercream tube should fit a regular piping tip inside the lid for easier decorating!  Roll fondant out with roller to desired thickness.  If the fondant is a little hard, just remove from wrapper and pop it in the microwave for about 10 seconds.  Knead fondant and roll out!  Once fondant is rolled, cut out shape.  Using a bit of buttercream for glue, add shape to top of cookie.  Use pearls and edible sugars to decorate.  Use your buttercream as your “glue” for sugars as needed.  It was a fun activity for the kids too!  We hope you have a Happy Mother’s Day!
