Every season, new cookie cutters make their appearance in craft and discount stores. Pictures are posted on Facebook or Instagram by the lucky cookiers who first spied them. A mad rush to the stores ensues, followed by the updated pictures and statuses of "I found them!" and "I bought extras-who needs them!". And those of us who are unable to score the highly sought-after shapes are left to cry in our cookie dough with dreams of what-ifs.
And then comes along a Cookie Fairy Godmother.
I was completely surprised by one such Cookie Fairy Godmother, who spontaneously gifted me with cutters that were on my wish list! Top of the list included the Wilton turkey and turkey leg cutter set.
My version of the Turkey Leg- I started with an ivory base. Then airbrushed with warm brown and ivory. I accidentally touched and crushed the surface (thanks to being impatient!), so I decided to touch/crush all over to make it uniform. It kinda works!
I am also blessed with "Cookie Think". That's what Sugarbelle calls the ability to see other designs in a cookie cutter, in addition to the intended /original idea. So while I see a turkey leg in the cutter above, I also see many other things!
Seriously- how cute is this! Someone at Wilton has a great sense of humor. Wilton also released a pumpkin/slice of pie set, which my Cookie Fairy Godmother also sent. I was stunned by the box of cutters the USPS delivery gal gave me! --->TRULY BLESSED<---
The guest of honor at the dinner table! Gobble Gobble!
A cornucopia displaying the bountiful harvest of the season.
May your Thanksgiving blessings be bountiful!
