We all scream for ice cream and squirrels and hedgehogs

May 3, 2010

I think that cookie cutters are starting to become a new obsession of mine. I found a cute ice cream cone at Joanns the other day and inspiration struck. Since I knew I would be making brown royal icing I also picked out my hedgehog and squirrel cookie cutters. I find that the same cutter gets boring when rolling cookies, so I like having a few other shapes.

This was the first time I waited overnight for one color to dry completely before adding more, but it was worth it to get such clean lines on top and that great layered feel.

While I love the cones on on the ice cream, surpsingly enough I think that the simple hedgehogs and squirrels are even cooler. Both cookie cutters came in a  woodland animal Ikea set. I really want to make the moose cookies one of these days for my mother and her Northern Exposure love.

I bought a package of cellophane bags from Daiso and wrapped them up to give to my friends. It’s amazing how much a little bag and twisty tie dress them up 🙂
