Fairy Wand Cookies

Having a little princess in the family means that we are often planning fairy tea parties for visiting fairies, aka friends.  Fairy wand cookies are the perfect magical, sugary treat for such gatherings.

Make a Wish Titled
Little girls have huge imaginations, these fairy wand cookies transported them all the to Paris for the party! It’s amazing what a sprinkling of pink and silver fairy dust  can do!

"Make a Wish"

“Make a Wish”

Little girls really are made of “Sugar and Spice and all things nice.” It amazes me as my daughter grows just how girly and sweet she is becoming.

Like her mother anything “pretty” catches her eye. The set for this photo is made up of a few things we found at “Typo.”

I think we were both hoping the magic wand would get us to Paris. Anais has already told me that for her 10th birthday she wants to go to France and visit the Eiffel Tower.  She has even started learning some French words.

Making the cookie fairy wands was as easy as poking a stick or paddle pop into a sugar cookie before baking.

I’m sure the fairies would be happy to decorate their own wands.

If only I wasn’t too big to be a fairy.  If you could have a wish in your own magical cookie fairy wand what would it be?

    Any fairy party will go well with these pretty goodies…And I’m sure the saying, “You can’t have your wand (cake) and eat it, too” didn’t work out ;). What a nice morning sight!
