Camping Cookies - Firelies in a Jar
I'm going to confess - as many times as I've been camping, I've never seen a firelfy, let alone capture one in a sweet mason jar. However, I love the idea of them and the magic they must illicit in young children. And I do believe that all beautiful things are those that are wild & free.
I created these fireflies as a royal icing transfer on Facebook live. Have you joined me for a live tutorial? They are fun and messy and full of real life - so if you have any desire to see a behind the scenes, be sure to like my page and keep an eye out for my live demos.
Royal icing transfers are awesome! I sketch on the back of parchment and ice on the top. You could do accents, letters, and more. If you mess up, no big deal - it's not on the cookie yet! This is an excellent way to practice and try new things out. I do suggest making more than you need because they can be fragile. Once they are iced, let them dry for a couple hours. Store the leftovers in an air tight container - they last forever!
This ampersand is so easy and there are so many themes you could create with it. I purchased the cutter at Semi Sweet Mike. I iced the background in a neutral white, but you could leave it naked if you didn't want that much icing. What would you fill in?
