Tutorial - Sugar Cookie Scrabble Board - Part 1

You may or may not have seen the 

Words With Friends/Scrabble Board Cookie that I made for Mother's Day.

Just in case you missed it.....

Most everyone wanted to know how big it was.

Well, it was huge.

Huge, at least, for a sugar cookie.
The board is 12 inches square, each little letter tile is 1/2 inch.

The challenge was how to make sure it was exactly the right size, 
exactly square and, most importantly, 
cooked all the way through.

If I baked it in one piece, 
I was afraid the edges would be hard as rock before the middle was even set.

After all, it's still a cookie.  

It needs it to taste good!

So I channeled my inner HDTV home improvement host and thought,

"What if I make tiles...then ice them all together... like one big cookie?"

That might work....

So I baked nine 4 inch squares, 
then trimmed them immediately after taking them out of the oven.
(yes, I totally burnt my fingers)

They didn't spread too much, but the edges were definitely bowed.

All trimmed, they fit together perfectly!
(that's a 10 x 13 cake board)

Time for the grout!!!

I put a little bit of icing under each cookie to hold it down,

and a few drops at the seams,

then filled in any gaps!

So far, so good.

This is when I started to get a little scared.

Just how much icing does it take to flood a cookie this size?

It takes so much that you begin to laugh hysterically at yourself because you
actually took the time to fill squeeze bottles with icing!


Pour it on!!


It's starting to set!!!!!


Thanks for stopping by,
