Royal Icing Sugar Cookies!

I have a new obsession. I started looking on Pinterest for cookie decorating ideas. Bad move, I know!  I could not believe what people were doing with Royal icing and the “flooding” technique.  I was hooked and couldn’t wait to try it.  I watched a few you tube videos and decided to get my feet wet with some Easter cookies.   I had so much fun making the Easter cookies that I quickly started finding any excuse in the book to make cookies!  My technique (or lack thereof) has progressed and I am always thinking about new designs to make.

You can see some of the latest cookies I have made. I don’t have any tutorials up on cookie decorating yet but let me know if you are interested :)

Here we go!

Back to school cookies 2014.  I made the individual bags for my child’s teacher and bus driver.

Cinco de Mayo! Fun fact, the margarita cookie cutter shape is actually a champion trophy cookie cutter and I cut off the handles to use as limes and make it look like a margarita glass :)  The hats are actually cowboy hats and not real sombrero shape but with the piping it disguises it well.

One of the best parts about making cookies is getting the kids involved.  I always let them each pick out a few cookie cutter shapes and then I make them their own icing and let them have at it! My son has said that decorating cookies together is his all time favorite activity. :)
