Today we are celebrating my friend Bonnie's birthday and since it is also Mother's Day ( in the U.S., not here in Israel , but no matter!) I decided to make a cake and cookies for all the girls on Mom's day. They were so fun to decorate and the possibilities are endless. The cookies are a delicious sugar cookie recipe I use and I play around with adding other flavors such as grated lemon or orange peel, even adding a few drops of different liqueurs to flavor as well. Royal icing added the final touches on top.
Very girlie cookies- a shoe, dress and purse.
For the base on each cookie I colored fondant and on some I rolled different textures on the surface.
Attaching the ribbons to the purses for the handles was a bit tricky.
I made the mistake of waiting until the fondant was dry.
I should have stuck the ribbon under the sugar paste when it was still soft.
Live and learn!
Bagged and ready to go!
Wishing Moms everywhere a Happy Mother's Day !
