Butterfly and Dragonfly Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing
I mentioned in my last post that I had a few sets of decorated sugar cookies to share. I made this batch for my cousin’s little girl Hailey’s 6th birthday at the beginning of September. Why did I wait so long to post? I guess you could say I’ve been a bit busy and forgot!
My aunt gave me this neat dragonfly cookie cutter, and a new butterfly, so I made a variety of shapes. I used the same principles as the original Butterfly Cookies post, but this time I decided to do letters and numbers – her name and age to be exact. To do this, I made dots of icing and then ran the toothpick through to create her name and age in little tiny hearts. Hailey’s favorite color is pink and my favorite color is purple, so I used those and threw in some yellow to compliment. I love the look of the black outline and design with these cookies – I think it really accentuates the colors. As always, these cookies were so fun to make and a true creative outlet! Hailey loved these and so did the rest of the family. Look for more sugar cookies to come!
