Purps take it all (butterfly cookie battle)


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.

Anyway, the platter quickly revealed two camps – the purps and the pinks.  Everyone has an opinion.  I do too.  Perhaps this post reveals it:

And then there’s the one I fondly call – “Big Bertha” – inspired by a big butterfly cookie in Peggy Porschen’s book, Pretty Party Cakes.  It was hard to let her go, munched with vigor by a three-year old.


No worries if you fancy yourself a Pinkalicious person.  There’s still a little space in my heart – and on this blog – for a few rosy wings.
