happy (belated) valentine’s day

I love simple sugar cookies with royal icing. I decided to make some heart cookies for Valentine’s Day. Michael’s had a great set of heart cookie cutters with all different sizes. And as usual, my little supervisor was close by: The finished product: I couldn’t resist! Hope you had a lovely Valentine’s Day!

will you be my bridesmaid?

This weekend I whipped up some beautifully decorated sugar cookies to include in a wedding package for my bridal party! Head over to my wedding blog to check it out!

cookie decorating class

happy fourth!

lots of color

I have a giant box of multicolored cardstock. It may […]
