Cookies - the (almost) finished article & Honey's first birthday

What a transformation hey? It's taken me a while and I've used quite a few icing bags but I got there in the end, and I am so pleased with the result. They look so pretty, and taste yummy too. It's just a simple sugar cookie with some vanilla seeds added. Here's a close up

And while I was at it I made a few others too, here they are


Seahorses and Angel fish

I say almost finished because really the seahorses could have more detail and the creatures need eyes but I couldn't face making up ANOTHER colour of royal icing for the finishing touches! So now I have a tonne of cookies sitting here looking pretty & I don't know what to do with them all, my husband might have to take them to work to stop me & the girls eating them all.

As well as all the icing we've been celebrating our Labradoodle Honey's birthday today. She just turned one and is thrilled to have a new bed and some extra toys to play with, here's a photo of the birthday girl celebrating in style.


  1. Hi, wow, super gorgeous cookies - love them. Your Labradoodle is soooo cute, looks like she had a great time on her birthday,

  2. I would love to be able to make those.
    You dog looks so cute.

  3. I have been meaning to try to make some cookies with royal icing but haven't had a chance yet and royal icing is so hard to work with! Your cookies are fabulous! I love that affect you used on the butterflies.

    Honey looks like she has a big smile on her face! Gotta love the little hat:)
