my brother will be turning 21 soon, and he's having his bday at a bar. i've never gone to a bar, so i don't kno if cookies will look silly if they're served there. he said they serve finger food sometimes??

i thought i could maybe make him some cookies in the shape of "21" or champagne bottles with happy bday written on them, birthday cake, etc - and make them look fancy (like not so baby-ish)

i was also secretly hoping this would get my name out there as a cookiemaker, cos around here nobody i know has really seen decorated cookies b4 (besides gingerbread men). what do u guys think? do cookies belong in a bar?

I think this sounds great! I was just at the cake decorating store yesterday and they had martini cookie cutters - so cute!

Yeah, if you do a search there are a lot of cool drink cutters out there. And Jennifer Dontz just came out with a great set of drink cutters for fondant (on her website.) And somewhere around here recently there was a thread on wine cookies complete with wine bottle cookies! icon_biggrin.gif

Go for it! I used a drinks theme for my niece's college graduation party, and everyone loved it. Here's the cake:

21 year olds probably prefer beer over wine. How about beer mug and beer bottle cookies? There are cookie cutters for those. Pretzel-shaped cookies to go with the beer. And there are margarita glass, wine glass, and martini glass cookie cutters, too.

thanks u guys have made me more confidant about the idea, now all i've got to do is convince my bro that cookies in a bar is COOOL hehehe.

what do you think is a good way to present them tho? i thought perhaps placing them lined up on a large white plate or something. not wrapped in cello bags or nething

I was thinking beer too - big ol' tall mug with froth. Very 'manly' cookie (insert the Tim Allen grunt here). icon_lol.gif 'Tinis would be cute too as it would show variations in your talent and would be an extra fun touch if he has any 'tini drinkers there. Or just do them for the fun of it! Either way, it sounds great! Cookies in a bar? Sure!
