There's nothing like the contrast of black on white. It makes fine lines and complex designs look crisp and clean. And it's classy. So damn classy.
A family friend ordered these cookies for an event of some sort, and my only instructions were that they were to be black and white. Well. That narrows things down, doesn't it.
