Summer Cookies-Just for FUN!

It's been a while since I made some iced sugar cookies and I was really in the mood! This is a sample of the summer cookies I made yesterday:) My new faves are the board shorts and the octopus!

I've never thought of an octopus as being cute, but this one has changed my mind:)

I think I am going to package each of these in a cellophane bag tied with a bright ribbon, gather them in a basket and take them over to the local boutique...I'll give the owner a sample and keep my fingers crossed!

Join me in linking up to "Im Lovin' it, Fridays" at Tidymom!

Have a great summer day!

  20. Wow, these are so beautiful! And just reminded me that I should venture out to the beach :-) These are just so summerrrrr...

    Just wondering ... your royal icing recipe (for cookie decoration) called for meringue powder, is there any replacement, like fresh egg white or something else?
