I have 3 nieces. They are so sweet and fun and precious! I only wished they lived closer to me. It's funny because they used to be my "birth control" as people say. BUT the older I get, and the more settled I get, they have turned into a trigger for my "baby fever." Look at how precious!
Last weekend was a family birthday party for Olivia and Sage since they are both born in April. Olivia is 12 and Sage is 2! Time flies! Of course, I sent presents to the party since I couldn't be there, but I felt bad to leave out the middle sister Autumn. She is at that age where she loves characters, so I decided to make her some cookies of her favorite at the moment!
For these cookies, I used my Kopykake projector to get the outline. I used the Wilton set of cutters for the shapes, and the cardboard backing in the KK. I am slightly a hoarder in that I keep all those little cardboard backs that come with Wilton sets. I like to have them to look back at if I especially liked the design cookies, or if I think the shape would be useful (like Hello Kitty). I cut the cardboard to make it fit in the KK, and got to work. I didn't flood these since I wanted the outline to be up to the edge. I simply piped the Hello Kitty outline with the aid of my KK (she needs a name, don't you think). After this was pretty set, I flooded the sections progressively with thick flood icing (15 second).
I really like the way that these came out and by the looks of it, the kids liked them too! It was so nice of Auty-boo to share at the party!
