Fairy Cookies from Wafer Papers

Some days seem lacking in magic, so you have to create it yourself. These fairy cookies were made with wafer papers of 1920s fairy illustrations by Australian artist Ida Outhwaite. I used a cookie cutter from the R & M Fluted Rectangular Cookie Cutter Set—by far my favorite and most-used cookie cutter set. I piped the borders with light gray icing, using a #16 star tip. Then, I 'painted' the border with Wilton Pearl Dust in Silver. Presto! Instant magic :) 

The fairy cookie wafer papers are available for purchase here.
