I am often sourcing and making props for my photo shoots and events, so I enjoy checking in on some really yummy blogs like Bakerella & Sweetopia who make sweets & cookies that are out of this world! I get so inspired but have always admired from a distance.
(My cake pops for the Archie party)I have made Bakeralla's cake pops, but cookie decorating has always seemed so tedious and so I had avoided it. But a moment of inspiration came over me (in the form of a cookie cutter!) The cutter was a perfect match for a new design I have just finished, and so with my new found enthusiasm, I set to work.
The verdict...cookie decorating is time consuming, and tedious (don't know if I would want to do hundreds at a time, or start a baking business or anything!), but quite satisfying to see my end product!
I didn't use royal icing, which I think would give a smoother finish, but all in all, I think they will do the job! You have to start somewhere right?!Now off to use them in a shoot for my new design!...
