I am not gonna lie; I was SO excited to make these. I really had no idea what I was going to do when I sat down to decorate however. My friend, Tally had a 70's themed birthday party so I had to do something special for her.
There are a million directions to go with the 70's since there are so many great trends from that era. I took a little bit of everything for inspiration.
I knew I wanted to do peace signs for sure but I couldn't get away from my inner flower child. And then, after the cookies were delivered and the pictures were posted, an amazing follower pointed out that I am missing the bottom/middle line so this is actually a Mercedes sign. Ha! Totally something I would do!!! I bet several people noticed including my hubs but didn't have the heart to tell me. ;)
Believe it or not, I didn't have to make any icing for these cookies. I had icing left over from all of the week's cookies so I decorated according to the colors that I had in flood/pipe icing.
I honestly didn't know what I was doing with this chick but she ended up looking like Velma from Scooby-Doo so it worked out I guess.
For this groovy chick, I got inspiration from Sugarbelle's afro girl and Oh Sugar Event's and combined the two. Thanks ladies!!
The disco ball was first flooded in white icing. I then airbrushed it with sliver and added rainbow disco dust before I piped the black lines.
Happy Birthday Natalya!
