Spring is here! It has been around for a little while but now it finally feels like it is here to stick around. It is not going anywhere. Trees are showing off their tiny leaves and many of them are covered with blooming flowers. Yesterday I noticed our Dogwood in front of the house is budding and soon will bloom, for what ever short period of time that will be, it will be magical.
I have been itching to make these cookies since I saw Red Poppy Flower Bouquet by Marielle from De-Koekenbakkers. Thanks for the inspiration Marielle.
I wanted to add butterflies to simply decorated flowers; I used wafer butterflies but you could also use Royal Icing Butterflies(tutorial), though they are little more fragile and time consuming to make, they would a be great substitute.
Arrange Cookies into a bouquet.
These would be Perfect for Mother's day, Fairy Party or even Spring Wedding.
