Sweet as Candy Rose Cookies

I prefer small cookies—I like a cookie that is like a tiny jewel; a perfect mouthful. That way, eating one isn't a huge commitment and, if the cookies are especially pretty, one can eat many different ones in one sitting. In the end, I probably eat just the same amount of cookie, but I prefer to do it in smaller sections. Is that silly? Probably :) 

 Anyway... usually, I have a recipient in mind when I'm making cookies, but these were just for us. And, they were eaten in record time! They have roses, birdcages, and scrolls in pink, green, and blue—a modern take on Victorian themes.

Made with my favorite, Sugarbelle's Sugar Cookie Dough, using a 1.75" fluted cutter from the Fox Run Plain and Crinkled Double Sided Biscuit Cutter Set, the cookies were iced with white, wafer-papered, and then piped with a #14 star cutter.

The wafer papers are available at my shop.
