I have million things I should be doing today. Instead I made a couple dozen of these cookies for a Hunger Games party tonight. Have you read the books? The final book comes out tomorrow.
Don't be impressed with my piping skills. I cheated. I printed a picture and placed it under parchment paper.
I piped the mocking jays with royal icing and let them dry for and hour or two.
Once they hardened I pealed the off the paper.
They were fragile but I could pick them up and place them on the cookies.
I love this idea because I prefer a buttercream frosting over all royal icing. Now I can have a pretty picture and still have buttercream.
I need to get to work again so I can waste more time reading Mocking Jay tomorrow.
