Homecoming Mum Cookies

Homecoming Mum Cookie

Homecoming mums are a Texas tradition.  They were so common where I grew up, I didn't realize that mums are almost strictly a Texas thing. What is a mum, you ask?  Basically it's an artificial flower stapled onto cardboard backing with ribbon and trinkets attached.  In my case, a TON of ribbon and trinkets. Let me show you. How about my date, er, I mean mum.  Talk about Texas-sized!  It was almost as big as me. In Texas, homecoming is … [Read more...]

In Texas, Friday is synonymous with football, which makes it the perfect day for decorated cheerleader cookies.  But before we get to the decorating, I want to share a little story about what I learned from these cookies. As some of you might have noticed, I'm kind of a perfectionist (that might be a gross understatement) and I really pride myself on ironing out the kinks in a design so the people using my tutorials don't have to. Most of … [Read more...]

Ballet Slipper Cookies

Ballet Slipper Cookie 2

Years ago, I ordered ballerina slipper cutter and eagerly waited for it to arrive.  I was very excited, but as soon as I opened the box I realized I was in over my head.  That poor cutter went straight into a bin never to be seen or heard from again. This happened over and over again until finally, I realized that specialized cutters just aren't for me.  So, here are ballet slipper cookies, Sugarbelle style. I used a simple egg cutter to … [Read more...]

Easy Pteranodon Cookies

Pteranodon Cookies

When I was a kid flying dinosaurs were called pterodactyls.  Then recently, my son informed me that they're actually pteranodons.  We couldn't agree, so, I looked it up. Turns out, we were both right.  Pterodactylus, shortened to pterodactyl, was a broad name for all flying dinosaurs until scientists figured out that there was more than one type. Pteranodons are way bigger than pterodactyls and not technically dinosaurs.  They kind of look … [Read more...]
