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?!?
Try this fun cupcake project too – the adorable swirly tails are make from melted candy melts and piped onto wax paper! Use hard candy bananas or if you have the time, pipe your own. Read the full recipe and instructions HERE.
With a sugar dog decoration and little creative icing work, a whole family of dogs comes to life on what was just ordinary cupcakes! The trick here is getting the dogs bodies, tails and paws just right. Use a large width writing tip to create bodies and legs and a smaller width writing tip for tails and detail work. Create a “grass” effect with the small writing tip too, or try using a large tip especially created for making icing look like grass. This special tip can be found at your local craft store.
Here’s a cute spin…add a little dot of yellow for a tennis ball or any other fun shape for your dogs favorite toy.
Place sugar dogs head on the body you created with icing and voila! Cupcakes that are too cute to eat!
