Because of the Derby

A good friend of ours hosted a Kentucky Derby party on Saturday.  And while it was Bring Your Own Meat for the grill, I also wanted to bring along some festive cookies .  What better than a few horses!

I ended up making horse head profile cookies.  I originally intended to make full-bodied horses but sadly, the only full horse cutter I could find was really tiny, which wasn't what I was going for.

I'm really happy with how they turned out.  I made three dozen and they were a BIG hit!

Wow. These are amazing. I just tried making line and fill cookies and I'll tell you now, they looked nothing like this. Mine were very sad. The detail you put on them is amazing.
