Every so often you come across something so fresh and unique that you think maybe the old adage "there's nothing new under the sun isn't true." That's how I felt when I found Skylar Hill, a designer of hand-crafted tuiles. Now I've seen tuiles before but the way she combines the colors and shape into such whimsical, charming little works of art really sets these apart.
The delicate cookies come in flavors from classic (vanilla, almond, lemon, raspberry) to intense (Grand Marnier, Kahlua, Amaretto) and she blends the flavors to create captivating patterns. These sweet cookies are perfect for an upscale cappuccino station, an elaborate dessert display or even favors for guests to take. I already have my eye on them for favors for an upcoming Lilly Pulitzer-inspired wedding!
