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!
Please check out Sweet SugarBelle at: http://sweetsugarbelle.blogspot.com. Just be prepared that after you browse this blog, you will want to whip up a batch of cookies ASAP (and perhaps eat some too)! Green shamrock cookies for St. Paddy’s Day, anyone?!?
Adorable new cookie cutter set to make a one of a kind cookie for Valentine’s Day. This will be a fun baking project, (especially for kids!), as you can personalize them to make them unique. Have fun – use icing writers to doodle names, messages, or drawings!
Puzzle cookies are easy to make and fun to give as treats to children. We made these puzzle cookies using our No Fail Sugar Cookie Recipe, which you can find under RECIPES at the bottom of our Home Page. Make the dough and cut out the heart puzzle shapes using the Heart Puzzle Cookie Cutters.
NOTE: If you want the pieces to fit together- Leave each cut heart of dough positioned together to bake–do not separate the puzzle pieces. Immediately after the cookies are removed from the oven, use the Heart Puzzle Cutters to recut the puzzle pieces on each side of the heart. Gently wiggle the cutter when re-cutting the dough to make sure you have well cut pieces. Allow to cool.
