One of my friend's Granddaughter, Emma, was turning seven on her Golden Birthday, October 7th. Emma is Anna's older sister. Remember, I made Chocolate Mini Stars with Anna in May? Of course you do. Your Golden Birthday is the year you turn the same age as the day you were born. When I was growing up, I never celebrated my Golden birthday, nor did my kids. It's just a nice thing to celebrate. Did you ever celebrate your Golden Birthday? I was invited to the party, but Emma's Godmother was bringing the cake and cupcakes, so I decided to make "Golden Cookies" in commemoration of her special day. I looked at several recipes, and decided on Iced Pumpkin Cookies, that when baked, take on a golden glow. These cookies bake into golden pillows of pumpkin flavor, with all of the spices. Then, I frosted the special cookie for Emma, with Vanilla Butter Cream Frosting, and dusted the cookie with gold shimmer dust. For the rest of the cookies, I just put on a Vanilla Glaze, and then dusted with gold shimmer dust.
Here is Emma in her Golden Glory. She's in first Grade, and has lost 5 teeth already. She had her party at an indoor play zone with a party room. See the crown on her head. Everyone had a wonderful time!
