Solar System Brown Sugar Cookies

Having a mum who is a homebaker means that you get to choose exactly what you want for your birthday bake in terms of type of bake and design. My elder kid requested for a solar system bake in brown sugar cookie form after he was wowed over by the realistic swirl patterns on my solar system macaron ferris wheel. He wanted the moon added in so there's an extra item.

My favourite happens to be the moon 😍

These cookies were made concurrently with my nativity scene cookies so I used the coloured icing from nativity scene whenever possible to help me save time. That's why the colours are a little different from my macaron ferris wheel version.

It's not surprising that he chose brown sugar cookies as I have never had a kid who didn't like my brown sugar cookies and that's a straight record for 3.5 years ever since I started making them. Others who have tried my recipe also gave a thumbs up and gave the same report that kids (and adults) love them. I am also sharing this recipe in classes conducted at ToTT for kids because it's so good I shouldn't keep it to myself ;)

You may refer to this post for detailed recipe for brown sugar cookie and royal icing. I added the swirl patterns, lines and craters using edible marker, vodka and a fine paint brush. The white highlights were added on using white gel food colouring dissolved in vodka. You may refer to this post to see how this is done.

The birthday boy was happy to share some with the younger one, both having the dilemma of deciding which planet to eat first 😅.

This also marks the last blog post from me for 2017. Have a blessed 2018!

With lots of love,
