Butterfly CookiesI love trying out new techniques when decorating cookies. Using stencils, airbrushing and now painting. I was so intimidated to paint on cookies until I found this fantastic tutorial by Amber of Sweetambs. I made these for my gorgeous niece Aishwarya who turns 18 today! These cookies have travelled over 7000 miles all the way to India. I am holidaying with my family in India and decided this would be a special surprise for her along with some other goodies.The gold and white cookies have been airbrushed using a gold sheen and a butterfly stencil from the cookie countess. Number 18 and Aishwarya have been painted with edible gold dust. I also made some chocolate cake pops for them!
I also baked an orange chocolate chunk cake that I cut up and put in an airtight container. All these goodies were in my hand luggage and were relished by all!
