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 :)
