Cookies from Sweet Sugar Belle
I love cookie cutters. I think I love them more than I actually like cookies. I think I can trace it back to the big metal tin of cookie cutters my Mom would pull out each Christmas. That and the sandwiches that my grandmother packed in my lunch in the first grade that were all cut into shapes with cookie cutters.
My love has carried over into adulthood where I now have a big plastic bin full of cookie cutters and my daughter, who is in first grade, has a cookie cutter shaped sandwich in her lunch everyday.
So I get really excited when I find a new reason to love cookie cutters. Sweet Sugar Belle gave me a fun one this week. She made the cute hippo and stork cookies above. But she didn't use a hippo or a stork cookie cutter.
That cute hippo, it is actually a modified owl.
Then she works her frosting magic on it that you can see HERE. And the stork, well it used to be an ice cream cone.
And again, she worked her frosting magic on it. You can see the stork over at The Celebration Shoppe.
It is the same cute ice cream cone cookie cutter (that I NEED!) that Bakerella used to make these cute Christmas cookies.
This cookie cutter right here.
Actually, now that I look at it, the stork cookie cutter looks a little skinnier. But I think you get the picture and I think both would make a cute stork.
PS - you really need to check out the stork cookies and see the clever way she frosts perfect circles.
