I made these mauve butterflies and dragonflies for a friend’s daughters bridal shower!  They gave me a color sample, and I matched it the best I could.

The butterfly cookie is quite large, almost 4 inches, and so it the dragonfly.  These cookies are a little more costly due to the size.

I also tried something different, and used some gold edible dust!  Which I think highlighted the mauve perfectly!

 

 

 

Pictured are three dozen decorated sugar cookies, mauve and pink colored butterflies and dragonflies, wth black outlines, and decorated like real insects with gold highlight dust. Also pictued are white daisie sugar cookies with yellow centers.

My mom had all of these cookie cutter for many years.  We never used them that I can remember.  So it give me great pleasure to use these and my Mom would have been thrilled.  She loved the sugar cookies, and she loved butterflies, dragonflies and daisies, and that is exactly why she had all these exact cookie cutters.

The cookies are sugar cookies with a hint of meyer lemon.  I use royal icing,

These are very large butterfly cookies and cost extra for one dozen.  I have smaller ones also.
