I made these Valentine's Day cookies for Amy and Melissa, a wonderful couple that I met here in Seattle. I really enjoyed making this cookie set as I used new several methods that I learned from the one and only Sweet Ambs, such as wet-on-wet roses, piped Wilton roses, and painting with gold luster dust.
I love how feminine and delicate these cookies are. They make me want to host a tea party out in the garden with my finest china. Except I don't own any china. Or have a garden.
My piped lettering needs LOTS of work. It pains me to post the above photo, but I think it's important to document my imperfections so I can look back on them one day and see how much I've (hopefully) improved! And on the whole I am pretty proud of this set.
