Elephant Cookies

This is just a quick post to share some pictures.

I have been so lucky these past few weeks, I've got to make a whole bunch of fun cookies. I'm pretty sure these are my favorites, the little elephants are just so darn cute.
These cookies were a request for a little boy's first birthday party, I was even more excited about making them after seeing the adorable invitation. I love the baby elephants so much, I'm thinking about making some more just for myself, imagine little pink and blue elephants with hearts and kisses.
Once again the cookies were shortbread with vanilla royal icing. I had a hard time finding a light green in edible glitter, so used a combination of sea green and lush lime to get the right colour. This was my first time using glitter, I can already tell its going to take a lot of self control not to cover everthing I make with it.
Happy First Birthday Hunter!
