Honestly, who doesn’t LOVE a good cookie? Forget those fancy cupcake shops you see everywhere these days; cookies are where it’s at this fall, and you and your friends will be in style with Decorating Cookies Party (Oct. 2014, $17.95) by Bridget Edwards.
With 50 easy cookie designs that will please even the pickiest Cookie Monster, Bridget’s designs will rock you out of this world, which, coincidentally, is my favorite theme. The retro rocket ship and space cookies work well for both a children’s party or an adult’s.
If vintage Space Age isn’t your thing, no worries. There are nine other themes for adults and kids to choose from, including a Monster Mash-Up, a Tailgate Party (complete with helmet, megaphone, football, ref jersey, and a foam #1 finger), Under the Sea, Wedding, and Baby Shower.
Now, throw out those cupcake stands this October, get out your cookie sheets, and get ready to party! Check out these great cookie designs from the book:
