For Valentine's Day, I used a double heart cutter to make some cute strawberry sweetheart cookies.
I knew it would make a cute Mother's Day cookie, but wanted the "child" heart to be smaller.
So...I found two sizes of heart cutters in my cutter collection and with a little modification (before baking), I had a "mommy and me" sugar cookie.
I decided to dress up mommy with a sugar pearl necklace and earrings, but probably just earrings would have been fine, or no pearls at all. I think it would still look like the mommy cookie. :)
(I added the pearls after the royal icing was dry. I made a thin line of royal icing for the necklace and then used a tweezer (for cookies only) to adhere the candy pearls.)
They were very simple to make, especially with the sprinkles (red hearts, and small, red confetti sprinkles to connect them, for the bow ties and hair bows)). This time I made the eyes with royal icing instead of store-bought candy eyes. I really wanted to make the two cookies look at each other. It was easier for me to make the small one look up, but for some reason I had a harder time making the other eyes look down.
The other facial details were made using a black FooDoodler marker.
Hopefully, you get the idea that mommy and child are looking at each other with adoring eyes. :)
Happy Mother's Day! XOXO
