I was determined to give Harry a very special cake for his second birthday, and since his favorite movie for the majority of the last year was The Beatles' Yellow Submarine, I knew what I had to do. I also knew that actually decorating a cake with icing was not my area of expertise, so I decided to make a yellow submarine cookie to place atop a store-bought cake.

And now, to make a long story short. . .

Make a cookie two weeks ahead of time. Wrap carefully in waxed paper, place in zippered freezer bag, and store carefully in freezer. Now you're ahead of the game!
.

.

Remove from freezer the afternoon before the party. Oh, $#^!, right?

.

.

Convince 2-year-old that it would be really fun to make cookies with you. With extra dough, go that extra step and make your own Beatles.

.

.

Place strategically on store-bought cake.

.
.

Demand that your 2-year-old identify each Beatle for guests.

Those Fab Four cookies look incredible! It is amazing to create such close likenesses with dough and icing!
