Keeping with the Valentine's spirit this week I made ladybugs and LOVE letter cookies for my friends over at The Cookie Cutter Company Website
I went crazy using heart shape sprinkles. I love them.
To make these cookies you will need:
- tip #2,couplers and pastry bags
- heart shape and black round sprinkles
- squeeze bottles
Start outlining and flooding your cookies
Let the cookies dry overnight. To make the small ladybugs, just pipe a big red dot for the ladybug body and a small green dot for the head.
Let cookies dry for a few more hours and then using a black food marker draw the antennas, legs and dots for the body.
Outline the cookies
Flood the cookies and while the icing is still wet, using the tweezers drop pink hearts for the ladybug and blue for the man bug ( this is a good name right?)
For the eyes use the black dot sprinkles and a pink heart for the ladybug mouth.( at the last minute I decided to add heart sprinkles to some of the letters)
of course I had to draw a mustache!
And here is the full set. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
