I had some leftover icing in the freezer and cookies I had baked and frozen a while ago so I decided to get a head start on some Valentine’s day experimenting. There’s no real rhyme or reason to this set – I loved the colours and wanted a shabby chic look but I played around with a variety of different inspirations. The icing consistency wasn’t perfect but I still had fun creating these!
A little lesson learned: when moving cookies around, be careful not to stick your finger in the wet icing. I was in LOVE with this graphic rose but went and stuck my big thumb into the side while making room on the cookie sheet 😦 I tried my best to fix it but there’s still a glaring flaw. Just call me butter fingers!
This buck silhouette is by far my favourite. The icing wasn’t perfect and must have had too much air (see the bubbles??) but I love the shape – I want to make a million more like this!Happy Valentine’s day!
