Tropical Flower Cookies!

I have Hawaii on the brain lately.

Tropical drinks, suntan lotion, gorgeous sunsets.....

so I made some tropical flowers to go with my daydreams!

When readers ask me how to start decorating cookies,

or what shape to start with,

I usually suggest these wet-on-wet Hibiscus flowers.

They only require two colors, come together super quickly,

and because there isn't really a 'right way' to do them,

a beginner can get really great results!

The basic instructions are the same as the wet-on-wet tutorial I posted for Fall Leaf Cookies.

(You can see that HERE)

Except, I used a sand dollar cookie cutter, not a leaf.
That would have been weird.

You can find that cutter here...

The leaves....

are from the Wilton Set of 3 Leaf Cut Outs.

My all-time, favoritist, can't-live-without-them, leaf cutters!

You can find them here

You can also find them just about anywhere that has a Wilton Cake Decorating aisle
(Michaels, Jo-Ann's, Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby etc.)

Happy Daydreams everybody!
Now if I could only find a hammock.....

Thanks for stopping by! Lizy B
