Martha Monday--Fireworks cookies

On the cover of the July issue of Martha Stewart Living, there's an awesome picture of frosted sugar cookies done up like fireworks.  Love it!  And so obviously, I had to make them. 

Fortunately, we had a great July 4th weekend birthday party to attend for our friend and neighbor, so I made a platter of circle and star fireworks cookies for the adults and, at the hostess' request,  individually wrapped twelve cookies to be included in the kids' favor bags. 

This project was a lot of fun.  Martha's colors are a lot deeper, and I had some icing consistency issues going on here, but overall I'm really happy with the result.

Happy Fourth of July to everyone!  Have a safe and fun celebration!
