EDITED: When we made these the second time, we did not use paint brushes...we used a knife to ice the background and a #3 Wilton Decorating Tip to do the initials :)
Inspired by cookies I saw in the book Celebrating Home, I decided I wanted to make sugar cookies iced in pastel colors. No, I don't have my seasons confused....I know it's fall; I just wanted to practice ::grin:: for spring and summer.
When I told Jenna, she said that she was planning a baby shower for a friend and wanted to do a butterfly theme, so yesterday she arrived at my house with butterfly cookie cutters in hand, to practice too. While Trey was napping, we made sugar cookies using my sister's recipe.... an easy, delicious no-chill dough, and while they cooled, whipped up icing in peachy-pink, ivory, a soft aqua, and lavender colors.
And then the real fun began...with paint brushes in hand, we proceeded to decorate to our hearts' content. To be honest, she was better at the detail work than I, making beautiful initialed cookies, but we both enjoyed our day of baking.
