Delightful Spring Cookies
I am continuing my cookie making with these spring themed cookies. I made Ladybugs, using an egg shaped cookie cutter, and some leaves with my fondant leaf cutter. Worked like a charm.
Over here we have the flower mix I made. Again I used the leaf cutter. I used yellow non pareils for the center of the flower on all of the flowers. Then I used an adorable spring sprinkle mix on the white flowers (not small enough in my opinion, but hey I am doing a trial and error kind of thing here) and hot pink sanding sugar for the pink flowers. The piping and flooding skills are getting better, and I pretty much have the royal icing and cookie recipes down flat.
The next project will be this weekend. It is my daughters sixth birthday (!) I will be making a Hello Kitty cake, and Hello Kitty cookies, for her Hello Kitty party. (groan) I still have not the foggiest idea what the plan is for the cake, I am going to wing it, so it may be a cake wreck. Most definitely. I will be using the Hello Kitty cookie tutorial from The Adventures of Sweet Sugar Belle though, so I've got that going for me, which is nice, I think. Alright, that is all for now...pictures to follow next week hopefully!
