Girlie Birthday Cookies

These were for my adorable niece Ayah on her 3rd birthday. She picked out her birthday decorations and plates etc. and I made these cookies and cake to match. The colors made me so excited, I love rainbow and neon anything.

Here you can see the plate that I got the designs for the cookies and the cake from.
I'm no cake decorator, but I decided to give it a try and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I made the cake decorations with the same royal icing I use on the cookies. I piped them onto wax paper and the next day right before the party I peeled them off and stuck them on the cake.

It's strawberry cake with a couple extra drops of electric pink gel paste food coloring to make it super pink. I also added in a couple handfuls of rainbow sprinkles to make it a confetti cake. I made chocolate buttercream from scratch for the first time in my life. It tasted great and much better than the store bought frosting.

Two questions, what recipe do you use for your cookies? Also, how do you get them to keep their shape?
