The Grand Budapest Hotel: Cut-out Cookies

This week I decided to make not one but TWO snacks inspired by Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. My previous post showed you how to make colorful mini chocolate cream puffs. I decided why not keep with the theme of  Grand Budapest and make some delicious sugar cookies decorated with to look like different aspects of the film. Here we have Zero Moustafa’s prized “Lobby Boy” hat:

To pay tribute to Herr Mendl of Mendl’s Patisserie, I made his tiny delivery cart and the signature pink box all his pastries come in:

And last but not least I made Agatha’s Secret Society of the Crossed Keys pendant that she can be seen wearing below:

The recipe for the sugar cookies can be found here and the royal icing recipe can be found here . Now I’m no professional decorator but these cute cookies are easy and fun to make, regardless of how they turn out.
