I know, butterfly cookies, again. I made them quite a while ago though… To combat the snow we just received this week (I know it’s the last of it!!), I wanted to post some spring happiness. These little critters are sugar cookies decorated with royal icing. Originally flickr user Sweet Pudgy Panda was inspired by my butterfly cookies, and I in turn was inspired by hers.
It was nice to find the butterfly cookie cutters all together in a set; I love the variety of wing shapes! The caterpillar and bumble bee cookie cutter came separately.
I used the royal icing recipe from Peggy Porschen’s book, Pretty Party Cakes, to decorate all of the cookies. She has some really cute Easter cookies in her book that I would like to try; but don’t think I can squeeeeze in this year. Next time! For a ‘how to’ on making these butterfly cookies click on my cookie decorating tutorial – general tips and butterfly cookies here.
Happy Easter to you!
