Cake of the Week: 7 eleven Slurpee Cookies!

So as you may have guessed by reading my blog, I march to the beat of a slight different drummer. So this week's cake of week is actually a cookie. Thirty cookies to be exact.

Last week I got a call from two of the best daughters a father could ask for. Their father was turning 60 and he loves owning and operating several 7 eleven stores. So, as the perfect treat for his celebration they ordered a 7 eleven logo cake with a sugar figurine of their dad holding a coffee cup and as favors, 7 eleven slurpee cookies!

The cake turned out amazingly well and the sugar figurine was one of the best I've created but the cookies were the real star of show.

First, I had to make the cookies and wouldn't you know it; there are no 7 eleven slurpee cookie cutters, so I had to make a cardboard template. Once the cookies were hand cut and baked. It was time to make the Slurpees come alive.

The cup and straw are fondant. The "slurpee" is royal icing. The details are hand painted, fondant and royal icing.

The cookies to for-ever to finish, but I loved every minute of making them because I wasn't sure I even could when I said yes to doing them.

Well it's bake to work for me...

Thanks for tuning in!
