Dr. Seuss First Birthday

I made these for a first birthday party for twins!  It was a Dr. Seuss theme and i was asked to make 40 cat in the hat cookies as favors and a small collection of assorted cookies for a platter.  This is one of my favorite sets that i've put together in was so much fun to make!  And it was my first time using edible markers for an entire design.  They are great to use because they are just like drawing with real markers, but the dye in them is safe to eat.  They also work well for adding little details on top of a design done in royal icing, like i did on some of the other cookies in this collection.  If you are interested in trying them yourself, you can find them on amazon or at your local craft store: edible markers.

I also had a lot of people on facebook ask me where I purchased the hat cutter.  I bought it from this great online cookie cutter shop called  If you like them on facebook, you will be able to use their discount codes on your order.  Here is the link for the hat cutter in case anyone is interested:

Thanks for the order, Kara!!

The cat in the hat design is based on maryann's (cookieartisan's) cat in the hat cookies where she used an edible marker for the design.
Have A Sweet Day!

These are amazing! It must have taken you ages to draw out the design on 40 cookies, but so worth it.
