Well I have to say, the cookie nerd in me has reappeared… So much so, ahem, that I may have (cough), even brought a few of these woodland theme sweets into the forest on Sunday afternoon for a few photographs. I know it’s a little, um, out of the ordinary, but I couldn’t resist. I mean, the little ledges on this one tree were just begging for cookies. And I generally save and dry out a few cookies from each batch to keep as demonstration pieces if I’m teaching cookie decorating, sooooo, no one was going to eat those anyways. This forest-loving girl had fun photographing them (and decorating them too!), so I hope you enjoy the post as well.
These cookies are hands down one of my favorite themes I’ve decorated… Forest, fairyland gnomes, whimsical mushrooms, fawns and hedgehogs (or porcupines?), and I’d love to add a few more shapes to the collection like a fox and bear. In case you’re wondering where the cutters are from, here’s a list for you:
Hedgehog and Snail – IKEA Cookie Cutter Set
Large Mushroom – Ecrandal.com
Small Mushroom – The Cookie Cutter Company
More Mushroom Cutters – Cheap Cookie Cutters
Acorn Cutter – Cheap Cookie Cutters
Deer or Fawn – Coppergifts
Gnome – Coppergifts
Squirrel – Martha Stewart Cookie Cutters (Couldn’t find link)
Tree – I thought I got the whimsical tree cutter from ecrandal.com (mentioned in this post here), but it seems they don’t have it. I’m unable to locate it at the moment. Please let me know if you find it.
Credit to the design of the body of the squirrel goes to Icing Land – I love their sweet style! And for the fawn, a long time favorite cookie decorator of mine, Yukiko of Rosey Confectionary Sugar Art.

The decorating techniques were not complicated, but if you’d like a step by step pictorial and description on any of these, please let me know in the comment section or anywhere on social media. You can find me on Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and YouTube.
Enjoy your day and happy decorating!
p.s. If you missed the description above, I had a little fun with photographing a few of these cookies (below). I generally keep and dry out a few cookies per batch to use as demonstration pieces for classes so no one will eat these. How fun would it be to wrap cookies in cellophane bags and leave them for someone to find though!
