It’s not quite officially summer – but it is FINALLY starting to feel that way (at least in our neck of the woods) and the sunshine is much needed! The sunshine has us thinking about summer birthdays…pool parties, bbq’s, picnics, spending time with family and friends and of course, celebrating the Fancy way with fabulous treats and colorful decorations. We’ve partnered once again with our good friend ArtGirl TM who is creating handmade sets of six sugar cookies shaped like candles and shipping them in a cute gift container. These colorful cookies measure approximately 4″ tall, are made with all natural ingredients and are NOW available on our website. Perfect when your your in a pinch and looking for a pop of color for a party. They are almost too cute to eat…almost! We love the idea of popping them in a batch of cupcakes decked out in colorful baking cups to match! We love ArtGirl and her fun website…check it our for decorating inspiration! Iif your up for an afternoon project – try your hand at making candle shaped cookies at home with our Candle Cookie Cutter, No Fail Sugar Cookie Recipe and a batch of royal icing. YUM!
We are just smitten over Sweet SugarBelle’s amazing cookies and are excited to follow the adventures of Sweet Sugar Belle on her BLOG – and we wanted to share it with you too! This baker/decorator has an amazing talent for designing lovely sugar cookies in vibrant colors and patterns. What we especially love is her recent blog posts about storing and decorating with royal icing. The step-by-step photos are a great reference if you are just learning how to use royal icing or have ever wondered how to keep it for more than just a day. Even after decorating many a sugar cookie, we were truly inspired by the unique tie-dye prints and intricate floral scroll patterns (and the fun Justin Beiber and knitting theme cookies are too cute for words!!). All this amazing creativity will make any cookie lover smile in a big way!
