For anyone who was wondering how my cookies-masquerading-as-cupcakes
turned out (my mom was!), here they are!
And with the pearlie pink treatment:
I think they turned out pretty enough to eat!
Update: I bought the cookie cutters from Crate & Barrel. They came in a set of 2 - a larger cupcake and a smaller cupcake. I probably bought them a year or so ago, but I just checked and they are still available online, so they are probably still in stores too!
