Flower Cookies!

Flowers are always a good choice for Mother's Day.  Flower Cookies, however, are a better choice in my honest opinion.  And these are so simple to make, you could whip up a dozen in before you could call 1-800-FLOWERS!  Almost.  These are the flower's I'm talking about~

I can guarantee you won't lose any petals, just perhaps the entire flower!
Tied with fluffy tulle makes them even prettier~
So, let's get started, here are the gardening tools needed~
I used the second largest cutter from the Wilton Flower Set.
Baked lots of cookies.
Royal Icing dots for the center.
Mixed up the frosting in the four colors.
Pipe a squiggle line around the edge of the cookie with a Wilton #6 round tip.
Use a firm paint brush and pull down the inside of the squiggle.
Continue with the next layer of petals.
Repeat until you have three layers of petals.
Add a royal icing button to the center.
I now have flowers growing in my Terra Cotta Garden.

  1. I would have never thought to decorate cookies with candy melts! These look great and wrapping them in tulle is a lovely presentation idea for Mom :)

    1. Thank you Paula, but the cookie is decorated with buttercream frosting. The little circles in the containers are royal icing dots for the center! I wonder if I COULD decorate them in candy melts...now that's a great idea!

    1. This is the closest thing to brush embroidery with buttercream. You'll have to give it a try!

  7. I'm concerned that the buttercream icing will be damaged when packaged. Or does your recipe hardens like royal icing? Could you share your icing recipe if it hardens?

    1. It is a crusting buttercream recipe, it does not completely harden like royal, just has a crust so I can package it. Just send me an e-mail for the recipe I use.
