Okay, time for a little confession. Along with a talent for cookie decorating, I also have the unique talent of making things a lot more complicated then they have to be. Some people are easy going, and some, once they have an idea in their head, cannot accept anything else. That person would be me *
Listen closely, I am about to let you a little secret. In my family, I am known as the cutter mangler. I have been known to bend and re-shape? cutters before I even get out of the store. It’s a habit that has served me well.
In it’s former life, that little guy up there was a cheapy mini-dog bone cutter. Usually, cheap=sucky… In this particular case, however, it’s a good thing. It takes almost no effort at all to bend this flimsy little cutter into an entirely new shape . HOWEVER, word to the wise, don’t get overzealous. They are just as easy to break!
These little guys are so handy, I try to buy one almost every time I go to my craft store. At fifty cents apiece, they are a steal, especially when you consider that this is the cutter I used to make some of my coolest cookies, including, mini flip-flops, nesting doll cupcake toppers, peanut Bitty Belles, and more than a few itty-bitty naughty cookies. *I linked to Flickr just in case you would like to see those. They are very cute, but not for the faint of heart so keep that in mind before peeking. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!
So, back to business. This is how it works…
After all that, BAKE and you will end up with this:
