Do you know that the real-life versions of these beauties are called "Sugar Starfish"?! Honest! After studying many starfish pictures, I thought that I would try to recreate the texture with royal icing and nonpareils.
Let me show you how I made them!
School will be out for my kids in less than two weeks. It is the first year that I am not teaching and experiencing that sheer giddiness of handing in my classroom keys for the summer. No, this year it's different. In less than two weeks, my boys will be together 24-7. With lots of fighting, and yelling, and eating, and a little bit of getting along thrown in there. Just a little though. My days of quiet cookie-making are going to come to a screeching halt.
Graduation season is coming to a close and the thermometer says that summer is right around the corner. What does graduation and summertime have in common?
The Wilton graduation cookie cutters! With a little creative thinking, these cookie cutters can be pool-ready in no time!
I'm Amy. Wife, Mom, former science teacher- and now full time cookie baker on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Pull up a chair and we'll create! I'll bring the coffee- maybe Mike (The Cookie Widower) will make it for us.
