While playing with royal icing and sugar cookies recently, I realised that all of my cookie cutters are either too small (meant for bento) or too large. I don't like big cookies. I found some great nested cookie cutter sets which I could use for fondant or scones or cookies at Chalet, some in heart shapes, some in star shapes, some in flower shapes and some plain circles. I already have a perfectly serviceable heart cutter, so I bought the flower and circle ones. I thought they were nicely flexible and were multi-purpose.
Then I saw this gorgeous dog bone cookie cutter. It's bigger than I would like, but it's just so cute!!! D thought I was trying to imply something when I made him these dog bone sugar cookies.
I had a lot of trouble trying to make brown with my four colours of food colouring. I made the beige colour using a lot of red and orange and a drop of blue. Still, I think this colour worked well.
