There's no other way to put this: it stinks when awesome co-workers leave! My friend Wooju's last day was today, and in lieu of the traditional "good bye" card, I decided to make sugar cookies that everyone could decorate. Seeing as these were going into work, I couldn't bring royal icing for people to decorate with (way too messy!) - so I brought in a rainbow of edible ink markers instead. Everyone had so much fun decorating (and eating!) cookies, and Wooju was totally surprised.
Now, most of these are decorated with inside jokes and other geekiness (I am a software engineer, after all!). But seriously - how awesome are they??

Wooju, we'll miss you! Wishing you all the best - we can't wait to see you in Time Magazine!
Sugar Cookie Tutorial
These cookies would be super fun for a kids party, and are actually pretty easy to assemble.
Step 1: Bake sugar cookies! I made fairly large and medium sized cookies, 2-4", but you can make any size you want. I liked offering a few different sizes, so that people could really get creative.
Steps 2 & 3: Cover cookies with fondant, and pipe a decorative border with royal icing. You definitely do not have to pipe a border; I did to make the cookies a little bit fancier. You can also add sparkling/sanding sugar, sprinkles, non-pareils, etc to the borders if you like. Let the fondant dry before decorating, preferably overnight.
Step 4: Decorate! I love these Americolor Gourmet Writer Food Decorator Pens. They dry quickly, and write really nicely on fondant.
And that's it! Super simple to put together, with very little clean-up post-decorating.
