Today is the first day of Spring! Yippee! Too bad it is 28 degrees outside.
I'm not going to let the cold weather stop me from celebrating with these cheery Spring inspired decorated sugar cookies.
My mother-in-law wanted 3 dozen Spring cookies to share with her co-workers, so this was the perfect opportunity to try something new. She is awesome about letting me have total control over the design.
I had so much fun decorating with lustre spray on these Wizard of Oz cookies, that I wanted to work with it again. I saw these little wood decorations at my local craft store and was inspired to create an entire assortment using them as stencils and lustre spray as the decoration.
So, I iced all of the cookies white and then sprayed away using these color mists and my stencils. It was somewhat difficult to get even coloring and the purple was very splotchy no matter what I tried. I still think they turned out fun, though. The look is kind of like water colors. And they were, of course, delicious!
