The Partiologist: New Year's Cookies!

New Year's Cookies!

YIKES!  Did someone just wish me a Happy New Year?  I still haven't recovered from Christmas, but I'm here for you with something to celebrate the New Year.  I already know 2016 is going to be a good year, mainly because I won't have to write the number five so many times.  I really don't like to write the number five or the number two, they always look sloppy.  Wait, am I the only one still writing checks?
Okay, that has nothing to do with the cookies I made and I made a lot of cookies for you to choose from to celebrate the new year.
Happy New Year Cookies!
These are the cookies I want you to make.
The first design were made to go into pretzel bags.

Which would make the cutest party favors, right?
Tied with a Happy New Year Tag!
And the Free Printable Tag for you HERE.
Just make sure your cookies aren't too fat to fit in the bag.

No worries, if they don't fit, I've got you covered.
They'll always fit in a jar, topped with a tag!
No cookie was left behind.
Lots of cookies to bag or even box!
A clear plastic box was perfect!
Before I share the next design, I'll show you the how to.
Start by finding a round scalloped cookie cutter that will fit inside the pretzel bags.
Bake the cookies, maybe just bake one to make sure it will fit in the bag.
Flood the center of each cookie with white royal icing.
Place the cookies on a paper towel.
Let dry.
Splatter gold sheen airbrush color across the cookies using a paint brush.
Dip the tip of the brush into the paint and flick it across the cookies.
While the cookie is drying, cut the numbers from black fondant.
The Wilton numbers worked perfect, they had no seams.
Place a number on each cookie.
Pipe black dots around the scallops.
Add the cookies to the pretzel bag and tie with gold ribbon and tag.
Next up are the BLACK & GOLD 2016 Cookies.
This time I decided to make numbers for the bags.
These slid right into the bag.
I'm hoping you're celebrating with black and gold, as that was the theme of the cookies I made!
I decided to bake number cookies.
Instead of covering the cookie with frosting, I topped each number with fondant.
Using the same number cookie cutters, I cut black fondant numbers.
Painted with rolkem gold, it's the best!
Pipe a line of frosting to the cookie and add the fondant topper.
Slide into the pretzel bags and add tag.
Of course I made chocolate drizzled OREO's.
Nothing says Happy New Year like a Blinged Out OREO.
It was only a matter of time before the OREO's get in on the action.
Pretty much the simplest cookie to decorate.
Melt white candy melts and drizzle back and forth across the OREO's.
Add gold dragees to the melted chocolate before it sets up.
If feeling really festive, paint with gold and sprinkle with edible glitter.
I've been wanting to make this Marquee Cookie ever since the Marquee Brownie!
Time is running out, so let's get started.
Pick any shape cookie for your sign.

I used the large plaque cutter.

Bake and cool the sugar cookie.

Flood with black royal icing.

Cut a piece of white fondant with the same shape cutter, only smaller than the cookie.

Because I don't like to write two's, I made myself a stencil with my Circut.

If you don't have a Circut, you can write the year with frosting. 

Let's face it, you probably have better handwriting than I.

If you use a stencil, lay the stencil on the fondant and spread with frosting.

Carefully lift the stencil straight up.

Lay the white fondant piece on the black flooded cookie.

With a Wilton #2 round decorating tip, pipe a border of dots.

Continue piping the border around the white edge and around the outside of the cookie.

Pipe small dots of frosting and add gold dragees for the lights.

 Thank you so much for following my blog, I appreciate it more than you'll ever know.
Wishing you the Happiest Happy New Year!

    1. Oh Rose, with all the things you make, stenciling would be a breeze! I wish you the Happiest New Year ever!

  7. The marquee cookie is "magnafique". I also like the cookies with one fondant number on each one & they look great packaged in a cello bag with your printable & ribbon. Could do the same with the Oreos.

    Heard on the news that the only people still writing checks are old people. I may boycott that channel completely! We check writers don't have all the identity theft stuff going on. The other day as I grabbed my trusty checkbook a cashier pointed out a sign to me saying after Jan. 1st they will not be accepting checks. All that means is that they will get a lot less business from me!

    Have a wonderful New Year and thanks for sharing all your wonderful ideas.
