Well, I give up. Almost anyway.
I've been attempting to find butterfly cookie cutters...or to be exact, ONE butterfly cookie cutter...for the sweet girl's birthday celebration. Who knew this would be such a challenge?
I've tried several stores but thus far haven't turned up one. I decided to see if I could find one on Amazon, since I was placing an order for some books and another couple of small gifts for her birthday. Found one that looked just about perfect, and it only cost $1.17. But then they tried to throw something like $7 dollars shipping onto the amount, since it doesn't ship directly from them.
Sorry, but I'm not spending an extra $7 for someone to mail me a light-weight thin piece of metal shaped like a butterfly. I am guessing actual shipping costs on something like that would be a dollar or less.
S. has been adamant that she wants no cake this year, only ice cream and my special banana chocolate chip muffins (with candles in them). Which is grand. But her love of butterflies led me to think what a neat idea it would be if I made butterfly shaped cookies that we could then use to make ice cream sandwiches.
I'm sure someone crafty is probably thinking I could just shape/cut the cookie dough into butterfly shapes by hand, but unfortunately I am just not that artistic. And I'd like them to actually look like butterflies instead of amorphous shapes that might look like butterflies if you squinted really hard and used your imagination.
Oh butterfly, butterfly, wherefore art thou butterfly!?
