Par for the course this year, I’m a couple days late and at least ten bucks short. While there’s been some baking projects in 2014, I just can’t get them posted timely.
But I just couldn’t pass on these little guys, a tiny prints knockoff, piped onto simple egg shaped cookies. They’ve got their heart in their hands and they are ready for love.
Now that’s a message worth passing on, even if it’s a little postage delayed.
For these cookies, I drew the design on paper within the shape of the egg cutter. Then, using a Kopy Kake to project the lines on the cookie, I piped the white middles first and added the hearts and noses using the “wet on wet” technique. When dry (or mostly dry), I outlined in the black (overlapping the white with the wings to create dimension). Later, I came back to pipe in the eyes and the feet. All in all, a pretty simple cookie, because I only had to mix three colors!
