Recently I’ve been specially interested in cookie decorating. I love piping, so when I have a cookie in front of me, I just want to pipe and pipe royal icing throughout. And once finished, I happily start piping the next one, and so on until I decorate the whole batch of cookies.
Cookie decorating it’s a quite time-consuming process (mixing, rolling, cutting, baking, preparing royal icing, decorating, drying time, packing…) although very very fun and gratifying. I usually add one more step, which is taking pictures of the result and sometimes, making photo collages.
As I mentioned in my previous post (frog cookies), I think that changing the purpose of the cookie cutters is very interesting and highly creative. Making a frog from a flower-shaped cutter, sexy underwear from a heart-shaped one… In this occasion, I used a heart-shaped cutter again to make playful mice.
If you keep the whole heart-shaped cookie, you can make mice faces (both boys and girls!). If you cut it in half before baking, you can make some little mice. In addition, if you cut a round cookie dough in half, you’ll make the simplest and easiest mice ever :- )
I didn’t forget to make some cheese sugar cookies to make my mice happy!! Some slices ended up with a few bites…
I got my inspiration from Sugar Dot Cookies, who made some cute mice faces and squares of cheese. I added my personal touch, as well as new stuff, of course!
I hope you like them and as I did, you get inspired!
See you soon.
