Your cookies are just beautiful! I want to take lessons from you for decorating...when is the class? I usually make valentine cookies for my grands, but this year is so busy getting ready for a show in the UK that I won't get them made, but I've promised Easter cookies for sure. Stay warm, my friend, XOXO
