Fairy Cookies - Warwick Goble

You may remember my first set of fairy cookies from wafer papers, by Australian artist Ida Rentouil Outhwaite. For my friend Alice's birthday last week, I made her a new set of fairy cookies. The art is by Warwick Goble, from early 1900s children's storybooks.

I made the cookies with Sugarbelle's Sugar Cookie Dough, using a 2.5" x 3" cutter from the R & M Fluted Rectangular Cookie Cutter Set. Piped and flooded in white, wafer papered, and piped the borders with ivory icing in super-stiff consistency (think spackle).

The fairy cookie wafer papers are available for purchase in my store.
