Button cookies - love this idea! You need a shortbread (butter cookie) recipe, two biscuit cutters (one slightly smaller than the other), and a drinking straw (to make the holes). Aww, cute as a button!
Pears in Puff Pastry. Slice pear in half, core it, and add cuts. Place pears on ready-made puff pastry, cut around inch. Brush pastry with beaten egg, sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake at 180 for 15 mins. (link is not working but all info is here)
I truly adore how this cake turned out! The cowboy hat was all hand carved, shaped and molded. Crown is Almond cake and lasso tier is red velvet. Brim, buckle and bandana are all gumpaste and crown was I used Ciccio Cakes.
