Edible Bouquets: Cookie Bouquet for Fathers Day
Edible Bouquets are easy and fun to make. This cookie bouquet makes a great gift for Fathers Day. You can use store bought chocolate chip cookie dough or use your own favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.
What I love about this cookie bouquet is that you can customize it for any occasion by writing appropriate greetings, for example, Happy Mothers Day, Happy Birthday, etc.
Follow these step-by-step instructions to make a cookie bouquet for your dad or grandpa!
Materials used in this cookie bouquet: store bought chocolate chip cookie dough, a container, bamboo skewers, floral foam, green decorative grass, cellophane of different colors, curling ribbon of different colors, a paint marker, and tools (scissors and wire cutters).
Step 1. Choose a container you would like to use for your edible arrangement.
Step 2. Cover the foam with green shredded paper or decorative grass, securing it with floral pins, as necessary.
Step 3. Bake chocolate chip cookies.
Step 4. Wrap cookies in cellophane.
b) Then roll the cookie in the cellophane so you have several layers of cello wrapped around the cookie. Tape the loose edge of the cello to the main body of the cellophane with a small piece of a clear scotch tape.
c) Fold the excess cellophane above the cookie over the back of the cookie.
d) Gather the cello at the base of the cookie. Take a piece of curling ribbon of a matching color and tie it into a granny knot around the gathered cellophane. Curl the ribbon with a pair of scissors.
Step 5. Write some greetings on several cookies using a paint marker. Let the paint dry before handling the cookies.
Step 6. Arrange the cookies in the container in a manner you find attractive. Break or cut the bamboo skewers to make them shorter, as necessary.
Step 7. You can add more enhancements to your edible bouquet. For example, glue a bow to the front of the container or insert a balloon Happy Fathers Day into the container.
