Almost Tiffany Blue Bird Stamp Cookies

A follower named Beth wrote in and requested cookies with birds on a chevron background, if possible. Serendipitously, I had licensed art that fit the bill, to make cookies for my aunt. They are birds and bird nests on stamps, on a robin's egg blue chevron background. They are not Tiffany blue exactly, that Pantone color being patented for Tiffany use only; they are bluer, but they are pretty close. Beth loved the wafer papers, and I got to send the "sample cookies" to my aunt, so everyone was happy :)

I made the cookies with Sugarbelle's Sugar Cookie Dough, using a 2.0" x 2.5" cutter from the R & M Fluted Rectangular Cookie Cutter Set. I iced them with white, and when they were rock-hard, glued on the wafer papers with clear corn syrup, and piped the edge with parchment-colored icing with a #14 star tip.

The wafer papers are available at my shop.
