Summer holidays to us at Lindy’s Cakes means heading to the beach for some fun in the sun. But have you thought about baking and decorating some summer themed cookies to take with you along with the buckets and spades to charm and delight your family and friends? Summer cookies are also the perfect choice for an informal high summer celebration, whether it’s a birthday party or just a get together around the barbecue.
Here are a few of Lindy’s cookie ideas to get you started:
Lindy loves decorating flip flop cookies, there is simply no stopping her – She has even managed to included two examples in her new book (published Oct 2011) with one on the cover!!!
Did you know?
Flip-flops are popular in developing countries where they are cheap everyday wear. In the developed world however they have become a constantly evolving fashion item. They can now be heeled, wedged, gladiators, slimming, the possible styles are a never-ending list and we love them all!!!
Flip-flops, arrived in America and New Zealand from Japan via the ex-servicemen returning from the war? That’s right – men were the first to popularise this type of footwear!
Flip-flops are also internationally known as; jandals in New Zealand; chappals in India and Pakistan; thongs in Australia; slip-slops in South Africa; and slippers, pluggers, go-aheads, ojotas or chancletasthongs in the South Pacific.
Are you feeling inspired? If so both Lindy’s flipflop and swimming costume cookie cutters are available through our online shop and to save you hunting for a good recipe each cutter comes with it’s own recipe card.
Ideal for using across the globe for the many variations of cookies, such as: biscuits, keks, galletas, platezchen, biscotti, koekje, brunkage, pepper biscuits, pepparkakut, pepparkakor, piparkoogid, piparkukas and wafers.
There are still 3 1/2 weeks left of the school summer holidays so plenty of time to still get baking!!!
