Happy September! I thought I’d share a few bursts of butterfly color while we head into the fall season (where I live). Marbling butterflies is one of the easiest and most effective ways to decorate cookies – a minimum of effort (depending on how many you make and of course how many designs), with remarkable results. If you’re new to decorating, really, you can do this, and if you’re an experienced decorator, I’d love to see some of your designs if you’d like to share below.
