May the force be with you

 047

Today was the day ! Why not? It's November, foggy and we had these cookie cutters in the drawer since august.
I discovered these when we were planning the star wars birthday party but was to late with ordering, they arrived the day after the party...
In case you are interested I bought them here - and yes they are expensive… But aren't they just great?

We had so much fun doing these , it took us almost all afternoon as you can see in the changing of "Monsieurs" clothing ;-)
Everything had to be measured first from kitchen utilities to his favorite toy.

I guess you can do any cookie you fancy with these cutters - we did some basic sugar cookies.

We had another cookies project going along next to the star wars ones too but they need 36 hours in the fridge so we have to wait a bit before we can tell you about them here.


This is only the start of out icing experiments. We have more planned. We used royal icing, which I have never used before.
It's got a nice texture, ours was maybe a bit to thin and we could do with an even thinner piping bag but I'm quite happy with the first try.

You'll need:

  • 1/4 cups confectioners sugar
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Mix everything together in a electric mixer on medium speed.
Cover with cling film until you use it.
