Hi Sugarbelle fans!  My name is Sue and I blog over at Munchkin Munchies.  I am beyond thrilled today to be guest posting for Callye so that she can spend extra time with her family and bond with her new baby girl. Did you know that she and Lilaloa had their baby girls on the same day?!?  Now that’s what I call a cookie connection!
Did I tell you how happy I am to be here?!?
I made these cookies with my eight (soon to be nine) little munchkins (grandchildren) in mind.  They are super simple and I had a ball making them!
Similar cookies are made with black royal icing applied on wet, white royal icing to produce the image. This version is done by using a black food marker (no black royal icing to deal with!) to draw on dry, white royal icing. I wasn’t kidding when I told you it was super simple! You hardly even need directions:)
Drawing on these cookies was very enjoyable, and coloring them was so fun, that I had to stop myself at four, for example cookies. You can bet I will be making these cookies again!
Coloring Book Cookies
Ingredients:
Food markers (I used FooDoodlers because I like the chunkier size for little hands)
Directions:
1.  Make cookies according to recipe.
2.  Let cookies cool completely.
3.  Outline cookies with royal icing.
4.  Fill cookies with royal icing.
5.  Let cookies dry completely, overnight.
6.  Using a black edible marker, draw images.
7. Color the images using the food markers (make sure the black design is “dry” first, so it won’t smear.)
Have Fun!
Callye, Congratulations on your newest, sweet bundle of joy, and thanks so much for your support and friendship! Hugs, love and best wishes to you and your family! XO

Decorated Moose Cookies

Moose Cookies SweetSugarBelle

Last week, when I shared my decorated bear cookies several of you wanted to know more about Mr. Moose. You know that old saying, "Ask and you shall receive?"  I'm pretty sure it wasn't referring to moose cookies, but we'll overlook that today. The first time around I used an older Wilton bear cutter to make these cookies.  I liked the angle of the arms and the extra ear space the lower body allowed. However, since this cutter is no … continue reading
