Play With Your Food Project {Vintage Toy Cookies}

Every once in a while I get decorator’s block.  That’s when I know I’m about due for a group project.  This fun collaboration, “Play With Your Food” was organized by one of my favorite decorators, Angela, of Oh, Sugar Events.

It took me a while to decide on a theme, but when I finally did {thanks, Nicole} I chose vintage-ish Fisher Price toys.  They bring back wonderful memories.  Especially the School Clock and Little People, which were called Mickeys at my house.

I started out with lofty goals, but around baking time I was bitten by the lazy bug. Not only did I wait until last minute to start, I also decided that I might die if I had to hand-cut my cookies.  So, I used cutters I already had.

  1. Stacking Rings- d and e {candycorn + circle}
  2. Teaching Clock- a {Wilton Frankenstein}
  3. Corn Popper Push Toy- b {Copper Gifts lighthouse}
  4. Two Tune TV- c and g {Wilton Gingerbeard House Set + mini-dog bone}
  5. Chatter Telephone- a, trimmed {Wilton Frankenstein}
  6. Little People Dog- h {smallest Ecrandal nesting doll}
  7. Little People Girl- h {smallest Ecrandal nesting doll}
  8. Xylophone- c, f, and g {Wilton gingerbeard house set +mini-dogbone +mini circle}

I love that I didn’t have to hand-cut a single one.

I learned a lot during this project. I may do a tutorial or two, if y’all like since I *kind of* know what I am doing now.

My favorite cookie turned out to be the xylophone.  The final product was a pleasant surprise.

 Okay, enough about me, time to go check out what my amazing friends made.  You’re going to love these collections!

    Oooh I love these! I would love if you did a tutorial – my 30th birthday is coming up and these would be so fun for the party – all my favorite toys from when I was little! (Especially the xylophone and phone – I think my mom still has those because I loved them so much!)

    These cookies are amazing! They sure do take me back. I miss being a kid. I love the xylophone! It is so realistic. All the cookies are so realistic. The corn popper was one of my favorite toys.
