We were supposed to have a family outing this past weekend and I was designated to bringing a dessert. I was excited to be able to have a reason to use this months cookie cutter. (I have a set that has a shape for each month of the year.) August is a watermelon. I got a sugar cookie recipe, found out how to make royal icing (used this link), and got to work with my assistant. We ended up creating these:
Needless to say the outing was rained out, but I brought them to family dinner a few nights later and they all loved them and made them vanish. I can't wait to work out the kinks (first time with the icing) and do September. A million ideas are swimming in my head right now.
