How to Make Woodgrain Silhouette Decorated Cookies

Sometimes in your life there comes a time where you can no longer remain quiet. I've thought about saying something a lot over the last few weeks, but I stop myself because I don't want to be "that person." I don't want to be misunderstood. And I'll admit, I've been sucked into this myself now and then too. I know there are people who believe strongly on both sides of this issue and I don't mean to say that what you believe isn't true.

And I did NOT expect to fall in love with an FDA approved luster dust. (The Non-Toxic dusts? I *KNEW* they would be gorgeous!) I just wanted to make some gold "dipped" pastel Easter Eggs. Is that TOO MUCH to ask?
