After searching for a very specific item, I have made the discovery of an excellent online store with a fab range of baking supplies. I came across Cakes, Cookies and Crafts because I wanted a cookie cutter in the shape of a magic lamp, and I wanted it quickly. It turned out that I had surprisingly few options, even online, so I was extremely pleased with this store and the fact that they had quite a few other items I liked that I could add to my bag at the same time. They have all sorts of cake/cookie-related items, but it was their wide range of unusually-shaped cookie cutters that caught my attention, particularly the fairytale ones. Check out the ones I bought below, including the very cute Cinderella carriage. At the moment they are 4 for the price of 3, plus, I received my order within 2 days! Excellent service.
So, I mentioned I was hunting down a magic lamp cookie cutter, and this was because I played Aladdin in a pantomime last week, and wanted to provide my fellow cast and crew members with a themed gift. Everyone loves something edible, so I decided to do Aladdin-themed gingerbread cookies. I used the Hummingbird Bakery gingerbread recipe (tried and tested – everyone loves it) and spent the day baking and icing around 80 cute magic lamps. What do you think?
