How to make easy decorated graduation tassel sugar cookies

You know how I'm always like, "Ohhh...don't judge me...I've done something absolutely ridiculous but it's okay because people are people and let's forget I'm weird because...COOKIES!!" Well, I'm going to give you a pass on this one and say - "Go ahead and judge friends." Because this one is a little bit past ridiculous. (And that's saying something coming from the girl who wore a 3 foot wide sombrero to the last CookieCon.)

I'm not normally one to brag, but I'm kind of awesome at procrastinating. I've been really honing my skill for the last few years and I got a group together to petition to add it as an Olympic sport. I'm determined to be ready to valiantly represent my country if it goes through. I'd like to offer these graduation cookies as proof of my dedication.

Yeah. I made these back in May. You know...when people were ACTUALLY graduating. 

And then I took naps.

And went to the pool.

And honestly...did basically everything else in the entire world except edit these photos and write a blog post. Because...well...that's just my special talent and who am I to hide my talents from the world?! 

I thought about waiting a year to post these...but then I would get hundreds of comments from people telling me that I made the wrong year.

I thought about NEVER posting these... but then I love them and I can't just up and abandon perfectly good cookies like that. 

I thought about posting these and changing the date so it looked like I actually posted them in May and maybe everyone in the entire world just somehow missed that blog post. (I'm not going to lie...this option was a real contender for a while.)

And then I decided... I'm just going to own it. 

So here they are. Some of my very favorite graduation cookies ever -- just in time for everyone to go back to school. Judge away!

How To Make Easy Decorated Graduation Tassel Sugar Cookies

Step 1.

I love these graduation tassels because they are EASY. PEASY. Grab some medium consistency gold icing and pipe the band of the tassel. Let it dry for at least 30 minutes.

Step 2.

Outline and fill the bottom of the tassel with a medium consistency blue icing and a #3 tip. Add the loop to the top. Let it dry for another 30 minutes.

Step 3.

Add band and tassel details with a #1.5 tip.
