It's time for beautiful, colorful Butterfly Cookies, few weeks back I made a this pretty Monarch Butterfly Cake (I have yet to share it here on the blog, so stay tuned) and so ever since that cake I've been meaning to make cookies inspired by the technique I used to decorate the butterfly cake. To make cookies I used chocolate cookie base and orange flavored royal icing.
I also teamed with Amber from SweetAmbs and Amber made these showstopper Monarch Cookies. You can find out how to make them and all the little details on SweetAmbs Blog.
Recipe and Tools you need to make these cookies:
Monarch Butterfly Cookies Tutorial
Chocolate Cookie Recipe
Royal Icing - I used orange flavoring to flavor my icing
Butterfly Cookie Cutter
Edible Gold Luster Dust
Stencil Holder(comes with the small green spreader)
Stencil Blank(mylar material)
Before you make the stencil, take the cutter and make sure the stencil cutout sections fit nicely inside of the cutter.
I just love how these turned out.
If you wish to package them, seal them in the clear bags and nest them in a cute box.
