I live in a harbor town, and my son's high school mascot is a pirate, so it's a bit surprising that I hadn't done pirate themed cookies before. So you can IMAGINE my excitement when I got the call!
These were for a boy's first birthday party, so the pirates are kinda like baby pirates, with a mustache. Because, well, don't baby pirates have mustaches? Moving on. . .
My client wanted smaller cookies for little people so the "coins" were about 1". I used edible gold spray for the first time. It worked out pretty well.
The treasure "maps" were about 2.5", as were the pirates heads.
And speaking of babies. . .
These were for an intimate baby shower. The one on the right was based on a napkin that was used for the shower.
Since the client didn't need a huge amount of cookies, I didn't bother making a cutter. I just made a card stock template and hand cut them. I simplified the design a bit and there you have it!
I'm finishing up a bunch of St. Patrick's Day cookies this week, then it's on to Easter! It's early this year, so I need to get on it! I have some fun new ideas, so stay tuned.
