These button cupcake toppers and shortbread cookies are so colorful and fun together!
Making the button cupcake toppers is easy once you choose colors you like together.
The button cookies have contrast-color icing dots for holes.

Sprinkles button cookies:

I had much better luck coating my cookies with a durable and pretty layer of sprinkles, so here's how to do this version if you like:

1. Pour the sprinkles of your choice into shallow saucers (I used pink sugar and multicolored sprinkles), and slice off the cookies from the shortbread cylinder so that they're ready to bake.

  Pour sprinkles into shallow saucers.

2. Before baking them, press each cookie right into the sprinkles so that the tops get an even coating of sprinkles. Put them on the cookie sheet plain side down and bake as usual.

  Sprinkled cookies are ready to go in the oven for baking.

3. Let them cool completely, and use a fondant pen to add four dots of icing for button holes on the decorated surface.

  This wasn't the glossy, shiny glaze of my original button cookie dreams, but I think it's pretty!

We could have button cookies for treats, swap buttons, make quicky button crafts. I think it would be oodles of fun.
