Paris Valentine Cookies {and a cookie swap!}

Hi friends! I did a little cookie swap this past weekend with Myra over at Sugar Oven Cookies.. Let me just say she is amazing and her cookies are DELICIOUS! Seriously, they taste incredible. 

We decided to do whatever theme we wanted, because I will be cutting back on the cookie making (I HAVE to finish my bachelors degree.. I'm so close!!), I decided to do valentines cookies! Paris themed that is. I will warn you these pictures are not the absolute best.. it was overcast for like a week strait so I had no choice but to take them with bad lighting. But here they are!!

My little birds in their bird cages. 

I brushed all the silver with silver pearl dust mixed with orange extract to get the shine!

Now here are Myra's cookies! I was SO excited when I was notified of my package at the front desk. It took a lot of self control not to eat all of them that very moment.. I had to wait to take pictures the next day. But They were scrumptious! So moist and AMAING. They looked as good as they tasted. 

I loved the feathers!

This one was my favorite (that's why I ate it first of course).

Look at all those beautiful, bright colors! I want to make cookies like these!!

So everyone go check out Sugar Oven, you won't be disappointed you did. Hope you enjoyed the cookies, HAPPY BAKING!
