I am co-hosting a 30th birthday party for a good friend of mine. We usually go for simple cakes or treats, but I thought I could really surprise my friend with customized cookies (inspiration attached). I am really excited about these cookies and would appreciate any advice as I move forward! There are just a few challenges:
1. The party will be held in Chicago and I will be baking in Minneapolis
2. I am fairly new to creating decorated cookies
3. I have yet to find a great sugar cookie recipe
Any/all tips with cookie recipes/decorating/fondant tips would be hugely appreciated! I'm also open to baker recommendations if you know someone who can do these well and ship to Chicago.
