1. Line a sheet pan or large platter with wax paper. Beat softened butter in a bowl with one of the additions until creamy and light. Transfer mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a decorating tip. Pipe butter onto the waxed paper into small, decorative shapes. Use two or more different decorating tips.

  2. Cover butter shapes with wax paper or plastic wrap. Chill several hours to blend flavors. Transfer to an airtight container and return them to the fridge. (They also freeze beautifully and will keep there for up to 6 months.) Let them soften at room temperature before serving.
