New year bakes: Tetris cookies

2 Feb

Ok so I’m a bit late with this one but Happy New Year!

One of my New Years resolutions is to bake more – and actually post what I’m baking on here, something I kept forgetting to do last year.

That’s why, despite baking these cookies about three weeks ago, here’s my first post of 2014 🙂

My boyfriend bought me two fantastic presents for Christmas.
1. These awesome slippers


2. Tetris cookie cutters



If I’m being honest I’m not great at cookies, my track record with them is far from perfect, but with these cutters I couldn’t wait to get started.

There’s a recipe on the back, which was really easy to use, and included lemon curd icing which I thought was a really good idea, and one I would never think to make.

The pack also has a colour guide to help you create the right colours for your Tetris shapes, however I wasn’t entirely prepared and only had pink and blue icing. That, and I couldn’t be bothered doing the white edging like it told me to.

Nevertheless, I was pretty happy with the way they turned out. And so were my friends 🙂


I know they’re not the most romantic of gifts but if you’re looking for a valentines day gift for the baker in your life, you might want to give Firebox a try.
