Idul Fitri royal icing cookies

Tomorrow is the Hari Raya Idul Fitri or Lebaran, also known as "Eid ul-Fitr" - a celebration day for the Muslim people for breaking the one whole month fasting period.

I'm not a Muslim but living in a country with the largest population of Muslim in the world, it definitely makes me feel as I'm also celebrating it especially because we are having one week holiday. Jakarta will be empty (in fact, it's already quite empty the streets) because most people are returning to their hometown to celebrate this festive with their family.

My neighbor asked me to make some royal icing cookies with the Idul Fitri celebration theme.

Here is the result :)

Wishing to all my Muslim friends:

"Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri 1430 Hijriah
Minal Aidzin Wal Faidzin
Mohon Maaf Lahir dan Bathin"

  21. BTW, Maaf Zahir Batin means "Forgive me for any physical (zahir) and emotional (batin) I may have caused you".

    As they say it here in UAE, "Eid Mubarak"! :)

Hope that I can get into cookies or cakes business soon coz' at the moment, I still need to learn a lot and also do marketing ;) Thanks for the translation, sounds easier just to say "Eid Mubarak" :D
