These fabulous paisley print muffin cups with coordinating cookies will catch anyone’s eye!

Want to get your garden growing this spring? How about a cookie garden?! Irresistible vintage seed packet wafer paper designs add a giant splash of color to ordinary sugar cookies. We used a rectangle cookie cutter, measuring approx. 3″ x 4.5″ for the cookie shapes. Royal icing is then used as a base layer for the frosting. Once wafer paper is applied you can also add extra icing for borders, or try using dragees to finish the look. These wafer paper designs are a must have for the “green-thumb” in your family.  Adorable in a cookie bag to give as a gift. Wafer paper, cookie cutter, royal icing and more can be found at: fancyflours.com.
