superman cookies


To go along with the Superman cake that I made for my son Matthew's 4th birthday, I made Superman cookies to include with the party favors.  Originally I was going to just do letter cookies ("M" for Matthew) as well as a Superman logo piped onto a round cookie, but my husband offered to make me a custom Superman logo shaped cookie cutter, and of course I couldn't refuse!


Once the cookie cutter was ready (it took him about 5 minutes to make this one!), I made my favorite sugar cookie recipe from Peggy Porschen's book "Pretty Party Cakes" and cut out my Superman logo cookies.  After the cookies had baked and cooled, I piped the Superman logo detail in black royal icing, and the filled it in with red and yellow royal icing.



I also made the originally planned round cookies with the Superman logo piped on top, which was inspired by Matthew's favorite Superman t-shirt.


Matthew loved the cookies, and I hope everyone else at the party did too!
