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!

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.

  1. Very cute!

  2. Alesah Villalon :

    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!

  3. Those are so pretty! The little girls in my life would definitely swoon over them. 🙂

  4. I don’t think there’s a little princess anywhere that wouldn’t be over the moon with these cookies. Especially so if they got a hand in decorating too! Beautiful.

  5. What a fun time the girls must of had — the cookies are so adorable. I love your photos too, Julie, everything is perfect. To your daughter I say, you’re going to love Paris! 🙂

  6. I hope her fairy wishes come true! I need to get biscuit making soon, thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  12. Hi Julie, I bet my 31 year old married princess daughter with her own newborn baby princess girl would love these! So darn cute!!

  17. Forget about serving these at parties for little girls- hand me the plate and I’ll wolf the whole lot down myself (just kidding, of course)! I’ve never heard of Typo before, but it looks very interesting.

  18. Oh how pretty! I bet these were a big hit with the little ones

  19. These are adorable! When I was sad or times were tough, my mum would always say to me, that she would wave her magic wand, to make it all better. She stills says that even now! Magic wand cookies – wish your worries away! And how good is Typo? I love it!
