Spring Flowers

March 28, 2011 in cookies - 6 Comments - 1 min read

I am trying to will spring to come.  Yes, yes, I know it’s officially here, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it.  There are streaks of sunlight, but it’s quickly gobbled up by ominous clouds and cold rain.  Making spring cookies was my way of letting Mother Nature know that it needs to warm up a bit.  My friend, Carri-Anne, wanted to learn how to make and decorate sugar cookies, so we make the cookies earlier in the week and decorated them on Saturday, while our husbands were supposed to watch Matthew.  He’s such a cute little boy, who wouldn’t want to watch him? lol  This bear came from his great-grandmother.  He looks like he’s ready for some cookies and tea.

This was the first time I decorated flowers, and overall, I like them.  I was trying to go for a Tiffany-blue, but I obviously need to work at mixing my colors.  It is certainly bright!

I liked having two different flower cutters and then being experimental with the circle.  I would show you Carrie-Anne’s cookies, but she wouldn’t let me take pictures of hers.   They were really cute and she did a fantastic job piping and flooding.  They are definitely harder than they look to do.  Come back over Carri-Anne, we’ll practice again!  Or if anyone else lives by me and wants to decorate, we could do that too.  It’s always merrier with more.

In the meantime, spring will you come?  I want to go out and play.


Thanks for stopping by! I love baking and hope these recipes inspire you to create something wonderful in your kitchen. xoxo

      I miss you too! And I bet you’d be good at decorating as well. If you have time the next time you come out, we’ll plan a cookie craft day. :)

    Thanks so much for having me over! It was so much fun to learn how to pipe and flood the cookies! It is a lot more challenging than I thought, but they were so yummy!

    Your cookies couldn’t get any prettier! Wow! You are amazingly talented! I want to come over and learn, but I’m sure they would need to be eaten before anyone sees them! :)
