Playing about with leftovers

I had some left over icing to use up, so tried out some new designs.  I like the way the red came out, it was make from some left over mint green mixed with plenty of red gel colouring (no taste of course) – good resulting colour.

Just for fun...

Made for a great morning tea today!

Cookies – pastel hearts and flowers

A lovely friend of mine was having a birthday, so I whipped up these cookies for her.

Cookies - inside the box

They’re a light gingerbread cookie with royal icing.  I decided to stick to a pastel colour collection of pink, yellow, green, and had to test the teal colour I’d recently purchased.  After mixing it i did remember I don’t really like blues for food, but they all looked lovely together.

The packaging worked really well too, make inserts to keep the cookies stacked nicely, worked a treat.

These types of cookies are a huge hit at school, my son thinks his friends have become addicted to them.  Nothing beats home baking.
