Happy 4th of July

For Independence Day we received orders for hundreds of flag cookies and patriotic stars. Customers really like the hand-iced cookies. The possibilities for design are endless. We like to ice cookies with 2-3 colors and dip one of the edges in a color sugar. It also has to be done neatly, otherwise it looks like the kids made it (which is fine if you're home for the holidays, but we're selling these). Because of the time and artistry that goes into these cookies, they cost a little more than our Americana or Fancy cookies, but sometimes, it's worth it!
