It seems I like butterflies! (And pink & brown, judging from the amount of both them on my blog!) I’ll be posting a tutorial I’ve now posted a tutorial about how I make decorated butterfly cookies soon; everything from the icing recipe I use for best results, to how the icing is applied on the cookie. They are definitely one of my favorite types of cookies etc. to play around with.

These butterflies bled a bit; I was using a recipe made in the cake decorating class I was taking where we worked on flooding techniques. I’ve finally figured out that to have less bleeding happening (colors seeping into eachother), I have to make my icing less runny and it helps to use the Americolor soft gel colorings .
