A customer of mine ordered these birdhouse cookies as a housewarming gift for a friend.

The birds are done by making the basic shape with a small piping tip (Wilton #1) then using a scribe tool to manipulate the icing to make the legs, tail, and beak.
I was using tooth picks for this kind of work but then switched to a scribe tool, which is much more environmentally friendly and economical since you don't have to throw it out when you're done.

The birds are finished by placing little blue eyes on their little faces with, of course, an edible ink marker (Foodoodler brand works very well for me).

Enter the giveaway at Fantabulously Frugal going on through Monday to win 6 of my Brush Embroidery Cookies in brown and pink.


  1. Love the addition of "how to's" on the blog! The little birdies are adorable.

  2. I love the birds!

    I wanted to share a tool that I play with. It is usually used to eat seafood, but to me it is a tiny spatula/toothpick/picker upper/bubble popper/move the cookie arounder!
