How to Make Mermaid Cookies with a Snowman Cutter

Learn to make mermaid cookies with a Wilton Snowman cutter at Sweetsugarbelle.com

A few weeks ago I did something I thought I'd never do. I went through my cookie cutter collection and got rid of the ones that I rarely use. Okay, before anyone faints, it wasn't quite that dramatic. I didn't actually get rid of them, I just put them into storage for awhile. We're preparing to move, and for some reason my realtor thought that a dining room was a better selling feature than a cookie cave. I know, I know...who wouldn't want … continue reading

How to Make Easy Hole in One Golf Cookies

Simple Golf Fairway Cookies Green Cookies via sweetsugarbelle.com

It's no secret that when it comes to golf, my knowledge is pretty limited.  In fact, I spent twenty minutes on Google before naming this post just to be sure I didn't embarrass myself. Anywho, I may stink at golf, but I try to make up for my complete and utter lack of knowledge with cute cookie ideas.  I hope it's working. Like many of my cookie designs, this one began life as a completely different cutter, in this case, a flip flop.  You … continue reading

Decorated Hydrangea Cookies

How to make beautiful hydrangea cookies.

I had never seen hydrangeas before moving to Virginia at age seventeen, but the instant I laid eyes on those beautiful, colorful blooms, I fell forever in love. Now that I'm back home in Texas, "real" hydrangeas aren't a possibility, but for years I have dreamed of enjoying them again. So, I made my own hydrangeas, cookie-style. Many people believe that you need to own an airbrush system to create cookies like these, but that simply isn't … continue reading

Decorated Golf Cookies

Easy Golf Cookies via Sweetsugarbelle.com

Father's Day is coming soon, and in my world that means lots of cookies in the traditional themes. At the top of the list, golf cookies. To be honest, I don't know much about golf. I went to the driving range (I think that's what it's called) with a couple of friends in high school and after about three swings, one of them forbade me to touch her clubs. What a grouch, right? Most recently, my husband forced me to watch the Masters. After … continue reading

Twenty Decorated Flower Cookie Tutorials for Mother’s Day

Twenty beautiful decorated flower cookie tutorials for Mother's Day!

Being a mom is the hardest, most rewarding job I've ever had. The moment I looked into my son's eyes for the very first time, my life forever changed. Over the years, I've added a few more kiddos and a lot more hustle and bustle to every day life. As I go through each day, surrounded by almost non-stop noise and action, I've started to appreciate my own mother more. I have a much greater understanding of how much energy it took to raise three … continue reading

Easy Decorated Rose Cookies

Whimsical Pink Rose Cookies

Would you believe me if I told you that once upon a time I was terrified of rose cookies?  True story. I was a few years into my cookie adventure before I even attempted to decorate a rose. The reason?  They intimidated me. As a cookie rookie (I made that up, but it IS a thing) I was very literal. If my cookies didn't look exactly like the real deal, they were a flop. Over time, as I gained experienced and confidence, I realized that … continue reading

Decorated Strawberry Cookies

Decorated Strawberry Cookies

Since the very first day decorating cookies has been an adventure. I've outlined, flooded, glittered, gilded, airbrushed, painted, and stacked cookies to bring life to all of the crazy ideas in my head. While all of that's fun, there's a lot to be said for simple cookie designs. You know, timeless classics. The shapes I come back to over and over again. Decorated strawberry cookies are one of my all-time faves. At this point, I must've made … continue reading

Perfect (and Easy) Deep Pink Royal Icing

Perfect Deep Pink Icing

I probably should've called this "Deep Pink Royal Icing, the Sequel," because we've talked about this before. But remember me saying I'm on a lazy kick?  Well, that includes icing color. After sharing an older formula for pink icing on Facebook, someone let me in on a little secret. Strawberry ProGel. Less time mixing icing and great color straight from the tube? You better believe I was all over that. Turns out, she was right as rain. … continue reading
