Butterflies in all forms flew in for the recent birthday party at our house. Along with the cake, I spent some late night hours decorating butterfly cookies, the first batch from a new collection of cutters.
My daughter only wanted lavender and pink. I threw in green for accent. Mainly because I sometimes confuse these cookies with coordinating throw pillows. They’re for eating already, my husband tells me.
