Then, with a toothpick, I drew lines inward from the black to the color, and then plopped in a few dots here and there. The decorating was pretty quick, but the actual cookie-cutting was a pain—getting the dough out between the butterflies was a nightmare. I don't think I'll put myself through it again anytime soon :D
