Breast Cancer Awareness Month Cookies

It's October, which means fall is in the air and women's (and men's) breasts are okay to discuss freely. Get those babies checked out!

I decided to make these after seeing these amazing cookies and being inspired by them. They are so cool I had to attempt to copy them and this is what I came up with. Also - the woman that does that blog has her own Etsy shop with custom cookie cutters. I'm kind of tempted, but the holidays are coming up which means I'm restraining myself. 

I don't have the actual cookie cutter so I cut out butterflies, angels and awareness ribbons and pieced them together.  I airbrushed the pink for the butterfly wings, I had a gradient in mind and it didn't turn out exactly how I envisioned, but they're still pretty.

 I tried a new icing recipe and had nothing but troubles with it. Will not be making that one again! I am going to have to use up the icing though since the unthinkable has happened and I've run out of powdered sugar to make more. Unthinkable.

I forgot to give the angel features - namely eyes. The cookies I used for inspiration (copied!) had way cooler angel wings than my cookie cutter. Mine are all "wimpy, good angel" and the ones on that woman's website are more like "bad-ass avenging angel."
