This past weekend I had the pleasure to attend a Paddington 2  premiere event in LA and host a special cookie decorating activity.  The event was held at the London Hotel in West Hollywood where each guest was treated to a screening of the film with plenty of popcorn, candies and soda!

After the screening, there was a gorgeous and colorful tea party waiting with a special guest, Paddington himself!

After tea, the kids made their way over to the cookie decorating stations to decorate a Paddington bear sugar cookie.  I prepped simple pieces (mini m&m eyes, edible red hat, m&m nose) and icing bags to make the process easy for the kids.

The kids loved it!  There were some that took a lot of time making each detail perfect and some that were too excited to eat the actual cookie and smeared the icing on as quick as possible.

 

 

 

I loved seeing their final creations.  No two alike!

Paddington Bear Sugar Cookies 

Paddington is simple to replicate using my signature sugar cookie and icing recipe (found HERE).

Step 1: Cut sugar cookies into Paddington’s face.  (A monkey face cutter works great).

Step 2.  Draw brown icing around Paddington’s face using a Wilton #4 decorating tip and brown buttercream.

The event was a magical all around, but the cherry on top was getting to meet the talent in the movie, Hugh Grant and Hugh Bonneville.  Such an exciting day.  I can’t wait to take my kids to see Paddington 2!
