The Partiologist: Star Light ~ Star Bright!

Star Light ~ Star Bright!

Today is a WOW day.  You are going to be WOWED by all the creative uses of a star cookie cutter.  When my AMAZING friend and cookie decorator, Callye (SweetSugarBelle) asked if I would like to participate in a collection of ideas using the simple star cookie cutter, I was thrilled.  And by thrilled, I mean my heart started beating in REDWHITE and BLUE.  In fact, I got my heart rate got up so high I decided to skip my workout for the day and start on my project.  Originally I thought I would like make something very elegant and sophisticated.  That idea ended up partly in the trash and partly in my belly and before I knew it, I turned back into "The Partiologist".  Same thing happens at my parties.  I start out the evening thinking I'll act elegant and sophisticated, the doorbell rings and in a instant I'm "The Partiologist"!!  Here's my creation "Partiologist" style!

Star Light

Star Bright
Many Stars You'll See Tonight!
And you can eat these stars.  You SO would be the brightest star of the party when you walk in holding this tray of starlit cookies!  All you have to do is lift a star cookie off the light to eat.  Here's the inside scoop~
Star Shaped Cookie Cutters
Red & Blue Fondant
Battery Operated Lights & Batteries
Stripe Embossing Mat
Serving Tray
White Paper Shred
Bake star shaped cookies.  I baked three sizes first to see which would fit.
Bake small and large cookies.
Press hole in each cookie as soon as they come out of the oven.
Layer the cookies on the lights to see how you want to lay them out.
Make sure the lights and batteries work.
Roll out red fondant.
Use embossing mat and make stripes on fondant.
Cut out stars using the cutter - 5 Large Red & 5 Large Blue.
Repeat with 5 Small Red & 5 Small Blue.
Make hole in center of all the fondant stars.
Brush back of fondant with Karo Syrup and place fondant on cookie.
After each star cookie is topped with fondant, pipe white royal icing around the edge and sprinkle with sanding sugar.
Here they are - Red, Piped and Blue Star Cookies! : )
Lay all the paper shred on the serving tray and then add the lights.
Covering the battery pack with shred.
Layer each light with one large star and the one small star.  Alternating colors.
Glowing in the light~
Glowing in the dark~
Star light ...stars are shinning bright tonight!
