My nephew Declan's birthday isn't for another couple days, but since yesterday was our last night all together in Colorado, we decided to celebrate. (Did I mention we're in Colorado for the holidays? We are. It's lovely.)
Since cakes don't turn out that well here at high altitude (at least not when I make them) and I had some left over sugar cookie dough in the fridge, I decided to make him a giant pop up bulldozer birthday cookie.
I just cut the parts using a template and then assembled them with a TON of royal icing. It was really easy, I swear. The only hard part was trying to pipe the icing with 3 kids trying to sit on my lap or steal a taste (I didn't really mind).
