Today I wanted to share with you a super cute cookie idea I created using The Cookie Cutter Company cutter, using my favorite shape of all heart. You can do so many things with heart cutter, and it really should be a cookie cutter staple in every kitchen.
To clarify, I first saw this idea over at Simply Bloom and after that I was hooked. I knew I had to make a pug (I’m praying you can see a pug). My friend loves pugs and since they just got a new addition “Violet” for Christmas I thought I’d make her some cookies. I already made her Pug Cookies and a Pop Art Pug Cake in the past and I’m sure one more won’t hurt.

My snowflake cake roll took 2 takes. My first try at first was successful and then it wasn’t. I forgot about the color mixing guidelines until I was about to add blue to yellow batter. Of course, it turned green. I used egg yolks in the batter and natural yellow color reacted with blue. There…
