I know this post is waaay last season but hey, there’s always next year right? This past Valentine’s Day my boyfriend and I were doing long distance. I wanted to do something that was cute, fun and relatively easy to ship.
These customizable sweetheart cookies were just what I was looking for. I personally find regular sugar cookies to be boring and funfetti is my absolute favorite. Luckily I was able to find this recipe to make cake mix into shape cookie dough. I followed this wonderful royal icing guide, and employed the help of my bake savvy roomie.
The only downside to these cookies is they were a multi-step process and ended up taking me several hours to finish. However I did enjoy getting to think of classic, funny, and personal cookie sayings.
Once I finished making the cookies, I packaged them up all cute in this little paint can like container, added a ribbon and headed to the post office.
I also made this super cute card. All it took was:
Cuttlebug with Disney cartridges
and obviously loving words
The boyfriend loved the cookies and appreciated the card. So I’d have to say this was a pretty successful Valentine’s Day. 🙂
