I am beyond excited to share this whimsically playful cookie collaboration. A group of my dear cookie friends came together to go against mama's admonitions not to play with our food and decided to have a little fun. The only guidelines were that the subject be something to play with, either toys or games. As the reveal date drew near, we began to share our projects and the excitement started to grow. Talk about bringing your A game - These ladies came to play!
So many delightful details: lots of classic games, nostalgic favorites and even a couple of new ones. Many of them are actually interactive, which adds an extra dimension of fun to this project. Take a look at the fantastic cookies in this Play With Your Food collaboration and be sure to follow these talented artists' Facebook pages to see the rest of their outstanding work. Enjoy!

The many faces of Wooly Willy.
Four layers of royal icing create a wall to contain loose sanding sugar. Red licorice acts as the stylus to move the "iron filings." (Full disclosure - that licorice is only a prop. I painstakingly moved the sanding sugar around using a small paintbrush.)

More royal icing walls built up to create these mazes. Drop in a silver dragee and let the fun begin!
