Happy Hanukkah Cookie Bouquet

I promise this is the last cookie bouquet I'll post about for a while... but I had to share my first cookie bouquet order! Someone saw the Christmas Cookie Bouquet I posted about here and ordered a Hanukkah one.

Since we are not Jewish, I had to go out and buy some cookie cutters. I decided to go with a pretty simple set and just spice it up with different colors of royal icing.

The dreidel is my favorite out of all of them... so easy and elegant. The yellow is done using a #2 tip.

The star was very simple to make. Next time I'll use a #2 for the detailing as well, I found the line made by the squeeze bottle too thick.

The menorahs were going to be my favorites until I noticed, while taking these pictures,that they were each missing two candles. Back to the drawing board, or the oven I should say. I had to make another batch and decorate them with the appropriate number of candles.

So while not pictured here, I ended up remaking the menorahs so that they would have the correct number of candles.

The customers loved them and I am so pleased with my first completed order. Yay!

These are adorable! I love that you made Hanukkah cookies because everyone always things they're only for Christmas. We always made them growing up, but the menorahs would always break : )
