From the Den Kitchen

I’m finally getting around to starting the cooking series I’ve been thinking about for some time. I’m hoping to do a post every 2 weeks but who knows it may be more frequent.

Today Miss K & I cooked butterfly biscuits from Issue 1 of the new magazine Cake Decorating. I’ve been going to make these since Wednesday but life kinda got in the way. Had no plans today so got stuck in and made them

Uncooked and cooked butterflies (yup that’s a cake underneath – also made lamingtons). It was a simple sugar cookie recipe & it is super yummy. Left them to cool and then we made royal icing. remember why I hate royal icing but I eventually got it to the right consistency. And then we had iced butterfly biscuits.

This is what they looked like in Cake Decorating.

and this is what mine look like.

Icing with a zip lock bag does not equal pretty icing. They all got eaten though & Miss K LOVES the butterfly cutters. AND hubby let me subscribe to the mag so look out for lots of baking soon hehe
