I was just asked to do beach themed cookies for my daughter's 1st grade class on June 2. I haven't done iced cookies yet, however I have been wanting to do them for a while. ( I've been too scared) hehe. I need ideas if any of you ladies can help me out, If you know where I can get beach theme cutters, as well as if you can think of different things that I can do. Now if I start these cookies on Saturday will they be okay for Tuesday??? I have a class on Sunday to go to so I am limited on time, as well as I have an order for cupcakes on Monday. If I can get any advice or help, That Will Be So Great!!!!! Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou!!!!!!!

They'll be fine for those days! After the icing is dry, just pack them flat in a Tupperware container or box to be double-sure.

As for shapes....beachballs, towels, crabs, fish, sharks, starfish, suns, pail & shovel, suntan lotion, shells, etc. etc.

Thanks so much Antonia74!!! Do you know where I can get those cookie cutters at??? I have been searching the web, but haven't found many choices. Those are great ideas!!! Do you use cutters or templates?

www.cookiecutter.com has a bunch of those, usually for $1. They even have a whole categories like "Nautical" and "Beach Fun" with other options I hadn't thought of like sunglasses, flip flops, etc:

If you don't have a LOT of cookies to do, just use a thin cardboard template and cut around it with the point of a paring knife. (I mostly use cutters, but if I need something unique or of a very specific size and I can't get it in time I just make a template.)

You can place the cookies in a sand pail with shovel when you are done.

Thank you so much ladies, I am probably going to have to do a template for the cookies due to my time constraints. I probably wont get the cutters in time by Friday. I did order some though. Pamconn that is a great idea for the pails and I will be going out to get those. Antonia74 I actually have to do 50-60 cookies. So My hand will probably be hurting after this. I was looking into covering the cookies with fondant, I don't know if I should do Satin Ice or MMF. Any suggestions? Do any of you know how to do a cookie bouquet?? With the sticks, do I stick them in while baking or stick them in when they come out?? This is all so foreign to me. Sorry for all the questions. Thanks so much!!!
