Be prepared for serious cuteness overload! Marlyn did it again, came up with something absolutely adorable and unique, a puzzle cookie forming a butterfly image, using 4 square cookie cutters and…. an exclamation point! You can cut that by hand if you don’t own the cutter. The detailed tutorial is available on her Patreon site, which you can join with a click here.
Isn’t that the most adorable set of cookies in the known universe? I thought so. The whole process is fun and not overly complicated, as it is all done with wet-on-wet, but you do have to set the basic design with piping consistency in black to get a nice contrast of the edges. That is the trickiest part of the cookie, in my opinion. Since you will be using 4 colors for the wings, you’ll have to work fast so you can pull them with the needle before they set. But the area is small and the task is totally doable, even if you are a beginner. Marlyn’s video is perfect to guide you along. Below I show some of the steps involved.
I love the detail of the grass at the bottom, small details matter so much when you design a cookie. The butterfly wing will work with many different color compositions, so it is a perfect cookie to play with. Adding the small flowers is also another touch that completes this set nicely, plus as Marlyn says in the tutorial, it is a nice way to get a dozen cookies in the little box, just add small flowers all around it. I smiled all the way through the process, and hope this set also gave a smile to someone…
