I want to make my niece graduation cookies but her school colors are black and orange. I am not to sure that either one of those colors would be to appetizing. Any suggestions on how to decorate using those colors? Thanks

you could have a diploma or white hat with black and orange accents

if her school has a mascot or an insignia of some sort, i would make a buttercream transfer of that and place it on an iced cake icon_smile.gif simple but effective icon_wink.gif

oh darn it... i wasn't paying attention i thought you wanted to make a cake! lol! scrap the buttercream idea, make it royal icing (the mascot or the insignia probably) on no-fail cookies! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks for the suggestions. I haven't tried a buttercream transfer yet, I am still pretty new to the decorating, but they look fun. Her school mascot is a tiger so I may try to find a tiger paw cookie cutter, a diploma, and a graduation cap. If I get real motivated I may try a cookie boquet. Thanks again

You know what would be kind of cool...

Do the cap and gown black, and put tiger strips on it. I think it would look great, big hit for a teenage crowd.

Just a thought...I'm doing my sisters name in letters too. Another idea.
