Easter Bunny Cookie Pop Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing

Easter cookies are the cutest, right?

This year I made some bunny cookie pops.  The bunny faces are similar to last year's (and Sugarbelle's design) except that I decided to give them some shaggy fur.

On the large bunnies - the eyelashes and mouths are painted on.  (Pretty stinky job on the mouths!)

The eyes and mouths are painted on the bunnies in eggs.

These cookie pops are available at Maggie's Bake Shop in Middletown, MD.

Happy Easter!

Snowflake Mini Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing

Spring?  Is it really spring?  Here we are on March 26 and I'm staring at a couple of inches of snow on the ground.

Seems appropriate to finally post these cookies from last month
Want to know what these cookies were for?

The lady that ordered them was hosting a party for her 78 year old grandmother.

A grandmother that eloped with her 93 year old beau!  How cute is that?

The mini snowflake cookies were bagged up for each of the guests.

This is the last of the winter themed cookies! Back to spring in cookies and hopefully the weather!

Bridal Shower Cookies - Hearts and Gowns

I had a request for wedding gown and flower heart cookies for a bridal shower.  Actually, I was sent a photo of these gorgeous cookies by The Sugar Tree.

I asked her if I could copy them and she sweetly agreed.  I made a few changes - the shape of the gown cutter is slightly different.  I chose to make just two flowers on the hearts.  I wanted to show more of one flower and balance it with less of a flower on the opposite side.

The tops of the gowns are covered in sanding sugar.  I really wish I had dropped that sugar pearl just below the lavender belt to cover up that little glob there.

The flowers on the hearts are brush embroidery.  I love doing that technique but still need practice, even after 25 of them for this order, they're still not exactly how I'd like them.  Pretty though.

Love this set!  Thanks to The Sugar Tree!

Birthday Dance Party Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing

This was such a fun set of cookies to decorate.

They were for a six year old's birthday party with a dance theme.

I love the colors and the spring feel.

I had a little sinkage on the flower centers.  Not full out cratering.  Annoying none the less.

Cupcakes, Stick figure dancing girls, music notes, daisies, and mini sixes.

Do they make you want to bust out a move?

Thank You Cookies

These cookies were to go in some "Thank You" gift baskets.

I love to insert minis into a message cookie.  Kinda brings it all together.

I'm so excited for spring and spring cookies!  I think that flower cookies are one of my favorites.  I love the designs and colors.  They're cheery!

Of course I used my KopyKake for the writing.  What a lifesaver.

The cookies were put into treat bags.  A stick is going to be taped to the back and then they'll be inserted into the baskets.

I wonder what else is going into those baskets.

Twin Peas in a Pod Sugar Cookies

I was asked to make peas in a pod cookies for a baby shower.  A momma expecting twins!  The colors were to be orange, grey, and green.

Like the baby pea pods?  I have Bridget from Bake at 350 to thank for the design!

I don't have a pea pod cookie cutter, so I merged two.  The bottom was a leaf and the top part was a flower.  Can you see it?

I painted the little faces on with food coloring.

I was quite pleased with how these cookies came out except for two things.

1.  I wish I had left less naked cookie on the pea pods.

2.  I wish the grey was lighter.

Other than that, pretty cute set, I'd say.  :)

St Patrick's Day Sugar Cookies

What's St Patrick's Day without sugar cookies decorated with royal icing?

I did basically the same leprechaun last year, but used a cupcake cutter.

Can you tell what I used this year?  It's a skull, turned upside down.

The design is by you know who.  She used a different skull with a little trimming.  Mine didn't need trimming at all. I think that this shape is perfect and definitely prefer it to last year's cupcake fella.

She has a detailed tutorial on the decorating here.

I included some shamrocks, mini shamrocks, and polka dot mini rounds.

A shamrock platter from the dollar store was a cute way to serve!

Cookie Class Spring 2013

I'll be teaching another cookie class at The Kitchen Studio in Frederick, MD.

If you've never decorated cookies before, we'll cover the basics of outlining and flooding.  It's not as hard as you might think.  Really! You'll make and color royal icing. 

If you have decorated cookies before, we'll cover two new techniques.

Royal Icing Transfers - These are a great time-saver, a fabulous way to use leftover icing, AND they're an easy way to get identical results on a group of cookies!  The flip flops in the photo are transfers.

Wet-on-Wet Flowers - You can see them on the tropical shirt.  This is something I learned from Sugarbelle and is perfect for any summer cookie collection!  It's really fun to do too!

I'll also show you an easy way to do the beach ball.  I've always been intimated by doing those.  How in the world do you get those sections to come out evenly?  I'll show you an easy and quick trick to do just that!

We'll also decorate cute little crabs, sunglasses, a sailboat and ice cream cone. 

Join me for an evening of fun cookie decorating!  April 25, 2013, 6:30 - 9:30 pm.

Sign up here.  I hope to see you there!
