Sur La Table

Lace Applique cookies for my beautiful ballerina

Every time I see my daughter dancing, my heart beats of joy and It is true that hard work and dedication is always paid off, she has become such a great dancer and I can not be more proud of her, she has overcome a lot of situations believing in herself and following her dreams!!

She has grown up as a dancer  and for her first time she wear a TUTU and dance as a demi-flower in the waltz of flowers in the nutcracker, she also dance as a snowflake and I made some cookies inspired  in that dance too. 

You should imagine how excited we are!!!  She danced so  beautiful and  very gracefully...she really looked like a flower.. and  I think her greater satisfaction was when some girls ask her for her autograph, we were so thrill!!  The girls looked at her with such a great admiration, I think that is the best thing for an artist!!!  

I am sharing the cookies that I decorate inspired in her and her tutu.

Few years ago I saw in a baking shop some cakes decorated with edible lace, I felt in love with the look, and  recently I started to learn how to make edible  using a cake lace mix and like the tutu has some lace on it, I used some to decorate the cookies. 

This lace is made with a special mixture, you bake it and when is done, it is like a real lace, it is very flexible and very easy to work with. 

I started flooding the cookie and when it was a little dry, I put on the lace appliqué and let it dry. 

When it was completely dry, I add some more details, like little flowers made with firm royal icing and adding my signature touch, mini sprinkles!!!

I also made a ballerina cookie !!

and make some other cookies like the ones Sweet Sugarl Belle shared on her blog. 

And as a "Merde" gift I made some cookies Inspired in the tutorial from  The Sweet Adventures of Sugarl Belle bowing ballerinas, they are so adorable, and super easy to make and handle perfect for "merde" little gifts!!

I used lace and mini sprinkles to decorate the cookies too!!

Remember that you always have to add your personal touch to your cookies!!!

I hope you like this cute ideas inspired in beautiful ballerinas!!
