Are you a Monopoly fan? I have to be honest, I played when I was younger but I haven’t played in years. That didn’t stop me from being excited to do a Monopoly set for a young boy’s birthday party!!! When I got the request from his grandmother, I started researching right away to make sure I was doing the right thing. She wanted all 22 properties. Which are pretty basic, however you will see below even some of the most basic cookies have several steps!!!
I found out very quickly that there are numerous versions of the Monopoly game!!! So trying to find the original was surprisingly quite a task. Then I had this brilliant idea….Why don’t I check if we own a Monopoly game? Sure enough in our tub of games there sat a beautiful unopened game of Monopoly! I was able to use that to be sure I printed out pictures of the correct version.
Now, I am thinking I need to open it up an challenge my husband to a game!
I knew this project was going to require more colors than a normal set, so I started by prepping all 10 of my colors!!!
Below are my steps:
Outline the light green rectangle.
Fill in the rectangle with flood icing and let it dry overnight.
Next, I used my Kopykake Projector to project each property onto the cookies and used the Extra Fine Tip Wilton Edible Markers (I get mine at Michael’s or JoAnn’s with a coupon!) to write out the property names and prices. (note to self: not all properties in the same color block are the same price, learned that the hard way!!)
While they were still under the projector, I outlined the color block on the top. (tip: I purposely did this part after the writing, just in case there was a mistake with the writing I didn’t already have colors on my 2 extra cookies).
Use flood icing to fill in the color blocks.
After giving the color block a couple hours to dry, I used a thick piping consistency icing to outline both the main rectangle and the color block.
