There's nothing like the sight of bright, colourful tulips to herald the arrival of spring.
I made these pretty tulip cookies to celebrate the high school graduation of a family friend. It was my first attempt at the wet-on-wet technique, and I think it turned out quite well.
These cookies were pretty adorable, as advertised, but the photo is unbelievably bad. I was hacking it with a crappy Blackberry phone camera until mid-2014, so apologies for the quality of all images prior to that point.
This was the smoothest result I'd ever achieved with flood-consistency royal icing, and I was so happy that I finally seemed to be getting the hang of it it. Go me!
I can't remember how these cookies came to be. A wonderful woman from my office at the time (who despite all odds is still a loyal client, hooray!) had ordered them for a bridal shower. But I don't recall how the conversation about cookies even started. Had I decorated sugar cookies before and have subsequently blocked the memory? Was I so confident in my artistic skills that I blindly accepted a random challenge? I have no idea.
