Birds and feathers

Monday again and I'm sitting behind the computer with tea and a homemade sugar cookie that I baked in the weekend. Our weekend was full with crafting, baking and house shores. I tryed to find nice cookie cutters in the shape of birds, feathers and birdhouses, but didn't find something I really liked so I wanted to try if I could cut them free-hand, I made a paper bird shape and also a feather and cut out the cookies, it wasn't as difficult as I thought. After baking I decorated them with royal icing, Mila was very happy how they looked (and tasted) and ordered a bunch for her birthday.

They look really good Ive used stiff cardboard to make shapes before. The colours are really lovely too. They will go well at the party methinks! :)

mooi, de vormpjes zijn overbodig!

maar mocht je nog een soort van vogelhuisje zoeken… bij dille en kamille hebben ze een heel leuk uitsteekvorm huisje voor koekjes dat je op een mok/glas kunt hangen. heb m even opgezocht: http://www.dille-kamille.nl/nl/content/516/bakken (nr 16)
