Ladybugs on parade

We all have cutters and shapes that we love far, mine seems to be ladybugs...probably special to me because when my now grown daughter was little I called her "Ladybug "alot.  And now HER daughter is called "Katybug ladybug." Needless to say, at our house, ladybugs are held in a somewhat more favored light.  I have discovered the fun of mixing things up a bit color wise.  Aren't cookies supposed to be fun???
Who says they have to be red and black?(the ladybugs.)  Or orange and black?
See what I mean??? The friend I made these for has 2 young children...they loved these. And I loved making them.   But of course, with new cookie cutters come new favorites.  So stay tuned.

Practice, practice, practice.

This was where I started...Easter 2011.  I had made some cookies before this that I had seen on someones blog, and brought them to work.  The girls loved them.  "Can you  do some for me for Easter for my family?"  As you can see from the picture, they're a little rough.                                                                                                                                                     

This is a later batch that I made for a baby shower at work...they looked better, a little more smooth, and flooded better.   And I'm happy to report the new mom took them home to her family and they disappeared shortly thereafter.
