Cookies Spring/Summer

Kentucky Derby Cookies

… And down the stretch they come…

My Dad asked me to make some cookies for a Kentucky Derby party this weekend.

I didn’t do a great job of taking pictures to give you a tutorial, so I’ll just share many pictures of the finished products.(Feel free to ask in the comments if you have questions about how I made something.)

I had a lot of inspiration from other cookie/baking websites. The horses I saw on the site Cookie Cowgirl.

I really love the horses. They turned out so well, and, honestly, they weren’t that hard. The hair was probably the hardest/ most putsy part. I am trying to decide who else in my life needs horse cookies.

The hats were what my Dad really liked. I based those on some made by Bakerella. They were a little harder than I’d hoped, and I’m nervous that the flowers won’t make it to South Carolina in tact, but I am hopeful.

And the Derby ‘silks,’ I cut out by hand, using an image from the official Derby site.

Lastly, the horseshoes… now, these I just know won’t survive shipping, but I had to try. What’s a horse without a shoe?
