Fireman Birthday Party with Fire Engine cake and sugar cookies

IMG_5859IMG_5861IMG_5860My Son turned 2 not so long ago and he is a BIG fan of the serie “Sam the Fireman” (also Toy Story but I had to make a choice and a firefighter cake seemed easier than a Buzz lightyear cake at that time .. 🙂 )
I love Theme Birthday party for kids, it just sounds more fun and you can be sure they will remember forever (ok , maybe not at 2 … ). My eldest daughter still remembers when I did Noddy’s car as birthday cake for her 3 year-old !

So here I am, starting early morning doing the sugar cookies and decorating them with Royal icing, baking the 3 cakes for the Fire Engine Birthday Cake and decorating my table with special firefighter Name Tag !
IMG_5875So, if you have another “Sam the Fireman” fan at home, here some ideas that I hope will be useful ! I have posted below the recipe for the Sugar cookies. Be careful ! They are highly addictive !

Ingredients for the sugar cookies recipe :

– 4 cups (480g) of all purpose flour
– 1 cup (240g) of butter softened
– 3/4 cup (160g) of granulated sugar
– 1 egg
– 2 tsp of vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Pre heat the oven at 170 degrees C (340 degrees F)
  2. In a bowl, beat together the butter softened and the sugar until smooth and creamy
  3. Add the egg and the vanilla extract. Mix until well incorporated.
  4. Gradually, add the flour and finish mixing with the hands until all flour is well incorporated and you can form a ball with the batter.
  5. Let it chill in the fridge for about 30min
  6. Roll out the dough in between 2 cooking paper (so the dough won’t stick to your table, neither to your roll ) until it is half a inch thick.
  7. Cut the dough in the desired shape
  8. Place the shapes on a tray recovered with cooking paper and in the oven !
  9. Cook until your cookies get to a nice golden colour
  10. Let them cool completely before moving them (or they may break)
  11. Cover (or not) with Royal icing and ENJOY !
