This are two soft cookies sandwiched with icing!!! Yum!!!
In the picture here are chocolate Angel Pies with a caramel butter icing and chocolate chips, and a range of flavours are available – you can even have them dipped in chocolate!
They are about the same size portion as a single cupcake, and the perfect accompaniment for coffee or ice cream!

Halloween-themed iced cookies!!!
I tried a new cookie recipe, and decided to practise my cookie icing skills with royal icing. Since its Halloween soon, I decided to try some creepy, spooky design ideas!
My son has already called dibs on the jack-o-lantern cookie! 😛
So what did I discover while practising…
First – I need a few more icing nozzles, like two or three in each size, OR, I need to perfect my piping-bag-folding skills (the disposable ones don’t have a nice round opening when you trim them).
Second – I have to plan ahead better! Copying a picture is absolutely possible, but you have to be sure where to start and how to finish since the royal icing dries as you work.
Third – I have to practise my technique and my icing consistency more. I am a little shaky, and my icing is often too thick to be easily used.
Last, but not least – I will have to do at least 6 of one design for orders! Doing all 22 of these cookies with a different design REALLY slowed me down – some kind of “assembly line” process is essential.
I had so much fun with this order for little Mira’s first birthday celebration!
The cake has a vanilla bottom tier and a chocolate top tier, both covered with pink sugar paste. The top tier has baby’s name on the front with little gold dragees as accent, and a brown sugar paste bow.
The bottom tier is quilted and the little brown pearls were piped on with royal icing.
The cake topper is a sugar paste teddy wearing pearls and a bow, holding a pink #1.
There were chocolate cupcakes in gold paper cups and vanilla cupcakes in pink paper cups, decorated with handmade sugar paste cupcakes toppers teddybear faces – with bows and pearls.
There were also teddy-shaped cookies, decorated in pink, brown and white royal icing!
Mira’s mommy had a pink and brown tulle tutu made to go around the base of the cake, and the birthday girl had a matching tutu to wear for her party! 🙂 I got this picture from Nadine of the cake with its tutu!
