Mother’s Day Flower Cookies

It’s been a while since I have posted. Fortunately, I’ve been busy teaching my Wilton Method classes and this morning I finally had a chance to take a breath. There’s lots of exciting things coming up, but for today I wanted to concentrate on Mom.


She is the reason I’m here! The reason I write, bake, decorate and have a nutty brain that doesn’t stop creating!! LOL She is the best Mom ever! What I will make for her (instead of giving her flowers) was a small basket of flower cookies to have with her tea or coffee. This is the same recipe I used for the Spring Cookies, but instead of adding almond extract to Wilton’s Large Batch recipe: I used only vanilla and orange zest. Additionally, I made Wilton’s Royal Icing: but to get a smooth texture, I strained the fresh squeezed orange juice into the recipe and added a pinch of salt. This combination works wonders to layer the flavors and tone down what can be an extremely sweet decorative topping.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms!
