This is Lila Loa's Vanilla Sugar Cookie recipe... usually I make the chocolate one, but I needed a light background for the mailbox. Paired with Cookie Crazie's glaze recipe flavored with simple vanilla... it's simply... heaven.
My new adventure this time was silver luster dust, which you just mix with a little extract and paint right on. It made a world of difference... especially with the mailbox... looks so much better than just the flat gray icing. The words were written on the boxes with Americolor food color markers.
Isn't little Owen sticking his head out of the box just the cutest? Thanks to my mom for the idea to put something in the box instead of just leaving it empty. His face is a little pink, but I had to mix some leftover icing colors together, so I did the best I could!
