What is the next best thing to getting flowers? How about little cookie flowers? I mean, they smell good AND you can eat them.
I found the most adorable tiny cookie cutters and I thought… tiny flower cookies would be so cute for mothers day!
I ordered these ADORABLE cards from Treat and am just in love with how they turned out! The quality is awesome and I love how special the pictures make them. Ha ha, and how many cards can you find that say Ga Ga (Rowe’s name for my mom)? I just love that I could personalize each card. I thought they went SO well with these little cookies! I even made sure I matched the color of the cookies with the cards (because I’m crazy like that ha)
I left the inside blank by not adding another picture so Rowe could “write” a special message in there for his grandmas.
The best part is the kids can help make these cookies too. I loved watching my son decorate the cookies. I couldn’t help but smile over that “concentration face” – and he LOVES to help (and loves eating the frosting even more).

I have made these cookies a LOT. Here is a link to the cookie recipe.
The Royal Icing is the key to having these cute petals hold their shape. I always vary in the thickness of my royal icing and since I wanted these petals to hold their shape I had to make the consistency very thick. You want to add in the water very slowly so you can control the thickness. I just make sure that when I shake the bowl the frosting doesn’t flatten out or move much.
Here is the Royal Icing recipe from Wilton
3 Tablespoons Wilton Meringue Powder
4 cups confectioners sugar
6 tablespoons warm water
(again: add the water SLOWLY so that you can control the consistency, you want the icing to form peaks and not flatten back out)
