I have a 19-year old son and I never made dump truck cookies. What's wrong with me? Seriously. Well in my defense, Nick was much more into technology than trucks. So instead I made dump trucks for Valentines Day. Why? Well because "You Are Loads of Fun" worked well with a dump truck.
I started by making a new cookie cutter. Yes, you can play dump trucks too. There are a couple of dump truck cookie cutters in my Etsy shop just for you.
I started by outlining my design. Hint: you can right click on this photo and save it for use in designing your own dump truck cookies.
Then I filled in the red and yellow and white parts and let that dry completely. The last step was the brown for the dirt in the truck and while that was still wet, I added sparkling sugar. Because you know, dirt isn't icky, it's sparkly ;-) says the girl that hates dirt.
and then I boxed them up in a pretty presentation box from BRP.
No, I don't have a cutesie picture of Abigail in a dump truck outfit. Are you really surprised? I went on a 70-mile bike ride yesterday. It was a beautiful day out. I got lost 3 times (no sense of direction) and got back a little too late and cold and tired. Last night I felt like my legs were going to break. But today they feel better. You know what that means...
Make it a GREAT day everyone! and don't forget to enter the give-away for three cookie cutters OR cookies from Cristin's Cookies! Enter here.
