Prince Cookies


Anyone who knows me, knows I am a HUGE Prince fan.  I love any and all things Prince.  So when my favorite local band (The Unit) was doing a Prince Tribute, I had to make these for the event AND the bassists birthday.  :)  I had a blast making these.  There will be more purple to come too, I had lots of ideas as I made these!


People referred to Prince as The Artist Formerly Known as Prince when he changed his name to this symbol.  It is known as the LOVE SYMBOL.  Although he is back to his old name, I still think this looks awesome and had to make a cookie featuring it!  lol


Free hand Love Symbol is not easy!  Some looked better than others, but I think they turned out great anyway.  Can't go wrong with Prince and Purple!!


The guitars were a must for me too!  Initially I wanted to do the yellow cloud guitar...my favorite guitar (from the Get Off video), but then I came across this and went with it.  To make this cookie, I printed out a picture of this guitar on card stock and used it as a template to make the guitar.  I cut the dough with a pairing knife.  (Yes, each one was cut out by hand.  Yes, it was a bit of work.  BUT, for any Prince fan....soooo worth it!  lol)


I wanted to put strings on these, but the neck of the guitar was so thin, it just looked a mess when I tried it.  So, I left them with naked frets! 


Here's Jen and I in our PURPLE attire for the Prince Tribute.  
 Such a great hubby...he takes me all the way to Chicago! 
Enjoying the band and people watching.
